  • IG’s a funny thing. We usually only see the best part of everyone’s day. You see me exercising frequently, lookin' all healthy and stuff but guess what, ⁣
⁣
⁣
I get injured too, I am a work in progress. ⁣
⁣
⁣
How do I manage? Well, I’ve gone to school for a long time to understand the body (the very little we actually know) and how it works. When I’m in pain, I’m able to question what’s actually going on. Do I need to be worried, what can I do to get better. I understand how long certain issues take. I realize that things are not necessarily⁣ going to magically get better if I don’t put in the right amount of work to get there. ⁣

⁣
Let me save you loads of tuition debt and stress and teach you to see things from my perspective. ⁣

  • Let's get back to the basics here. What often gets missed when we are discussing "core" exercises is focusing on the back. Yes, that is correct, the smaller muscles of the low back are part of that elusive core that everyone talks about. Over the next few posts, we are going to be discussing some of the most basic exercises and building up to some more complex ones. Ok so, a few weeks back we talked about the DeadBug exercise to help strengthen the core. These exercises are essentially the sister exercises to our bug. Now, as I said this is a beginner/ foundation exercise that we should all start with. I introduce to you The Core Arm Extension (yes I know the name needs work 😂) ⠀
.⠀
Kneel down to a firm/ stable surface. Get onto your hands and knees. Shoulders should be over your wrists, and hips over your knees.⠀
.⠀
Keep your spine in a neutral position and maintain an abdominal brace (ie. engaged core muscles)⠀
.⠀
Slowly begin to glide one hand/arm out in front of you as much as you can. The key word here is glide. This will help to ensure you aren't lifting/ hiking the shoulder. ⠀
.⠀
The goal is to bring your arm parallel with the floor.⠀
.⠀
Be sure to keep the rest of the body stable with no rotation through the shoulders⠀
.⠀
Hold for 3-5 seconds, more if you're feeling strong ⠀
.⠀
Return to the starting position⠀
.⠀
Repeat on the opposite side⠀
.⠀
Repeat for 8-10 repetitions (each side)⠀
.⠀
Complete 3 sets⠀
.⠀
Rest for 30seconds between sets⠀
.⠀

  • Don't get me wrong, I sure love a pair of cute shoes, but I love not having back pain, neck pain, pelvic floor issues (hey, prostate enlargement, guys!), and sneeze pee even more!
💥
This 'Shoespiracy' clip is why I keep going on and on about feet and minimal shoes. 👣
It's time to question why we are being sold and marketed shoes that are actually harming us. Shape over function? I choose function.
👠👡👢👟👞
Hmm, interesting how there are no emojis of minimal, un-heeled shoes.
😕
This is what makes a shoe minimal:
✔️A wide toe-box that does not taper too much.
✔️Flexible sole - sorry, Birkenstocks and wedge are out.
✔️No heel - ie. not even a centimeter (so that rules out men's dress shoes).
✔️Shoes that attach to the foot - yep, flip flops are a 'no'. Running shoes can be deceiving. They may look like they are zero-drop (no heel), but put your hand in and let me know if the heel is higher than the toes.
⚠️
And remember!!!!! You always want to TRANSITION to minimal footwear. Jumping in feet first can cause injury and damage because your feet (and whole body, really) are adapted to a foot-wearing shape. Let me help you in this transition journey (link in bio)  #cultureshapesus #minimalshoes #freeyourfeet #restoreyourcore #prolapse #prostate #bladderproblems #backpain #movewell #feelwell #agewell #motionislotion #footfunction #torontowellness #thornhillmoms #torontomoms

  • Do you really get what this means? Cause it’s GOLD

1- Access your joints in isolation to figure out how fluidly they can move on their own, without another part of the body trying to create movement for them- this is what a coach might refer to as a compensation. I.e when I try raise my arm overhead, my shoulder starts feeling ‘tight’, it won’t go any higher unless I arch my back.

2- Choose movements that respect the CURRENT boundaries of that joint so you do not reinforce compensations from other parts of the body trying to make up for said limitations. I.e Only pressing from overhead on angles where the back is not forced to bend backwards like a landline press or incline bench. 
3- Program accessory work that is specific to the limited joint, with the intention of increasing its strength/control through a larger range of motion. You base these off the limitations found in your isolated joint assessment as well as the demands of positional strength specifically to the sports/hobbies/life you live in. Through the @functionalrangeconditioning System, you would use a variety of active stretching, joint articulations and time under tension near/at your current end range of motion to create a more positive/responsive line of communication between you and the part of yourself you want to control. 
4- From head to toe, follow the steps over and over. As your body adapts, the implements you use in each step will increase in complexity/intensity/volume/duration etc. Your joint increases it’s parameters and so do you.

These steps are focused on developing healthy joints. A healthy joint moves very fluidly, without creaking or cracking, without pain, without feeling like it’s ‘hitting a wall’. It’s total potential for motion is FREE from interruptions by the nervous system. It can move independently and therefore when it joins a system of other healthy joints it’s capacity to express control, strength, endurance and power within skills, exercises, posture, etc will all be greater and with decreased risk of injury and fatigue.

  • This is a wonderful flow to start your day with.

It's a mobility flow for fascial freedom using all the Animal Flow Form Specific Stretches.

Form Specific Stretches are full body stretches that begin in a base animal position, then move through various ranges of motion.  The goal is to encourage a combination of flexibility and stability (i.e. mobility) throughout the body's many articulations.

You'll find that the Form Specific Stretches are not intended to be completely passive, as the goal is to create "strength through motion". However, you can hold them as an isometric position, or dynamically move into and out of them.

If you feel stiff in the morning & your body craves some mobility then why not sign up for my Early Morning 12 week begineers course?  Details below:

Starting Thursday 25th April 
6.30am-7.30am. 
Follan Natural Health Centre

Class dates below:
25th April
2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th May

2 WEEK BREAK FOR TT

13th, 20th, 27th June
4th, 11th 18th July

ONLY 6 places!! £120 (payment split into 2 payments – 6 weeks apart)

If you want to try it out before you sign up for a course then my next Animal Flow Pop Up details are below:

Tuesday 16th April
6-7pm
**Noble's Park (weather dependant or Follan Natural Health Centre)
£5
Book your place here: http://www.totalwellbeing.co.im/animal-flow️/animal-flow-pop-up-classes/

  • Should you continue training when you experience pain- almost universally the answer is YES.

There are so many benefits of movement and exercise. We do ourselves a disservice stopping for pain. Am I saying don't listen to your body, of course not. All bodies love to move. 
I also don't want to try to muddy the water making vague distinctions between 'pain' and 'discomfort'. Or even 'good' pain and 'bad' pain'

There are so many different approaches to movement and loading depending on the sensitivity of your system. Ranging from 'lets train an area that isn't tender' to 'we need to incrementally increase our loading to build up a tolerance so that we can perform sport specific skills'. I understand why trainers / teachers / coaches are cautious when it comes to training with pain. No one wants to be responsible for 'breaking' someone and it can be outside of their scope, experience and training. That said preaching that training should be pain free is not helpful or realistic.

Our bodies are much more robust than we think.

  • Add a few extra minutes in the morning to stretch out whilst you are still in bed. It is a great kick start for your body and gets the blood flowing, the endorphins flowing and primes your body for what is to come in the day.
Check out our next couple of posts where we will be sharing some great stretches you can do in bed before you get up.

Got any questions, please DM us so we can answer it for you!

  • Yes!! Stretching doesn’t only loosen you up, it gets all those GOOD ENDORPHINS flowing through your body, leaving you feeling relaxed and ready to take on whatever stressful thing the day could throw at you.

Make it a regular part of your day; it’s not only good for your back and posture, but for your mood as well!

  • Let’s get to know Carrie!!
. 
Did you know I grew up doing gymnastics? And I started coaching when I was 14years old! I LOVE coaching! Right from the wee little ones to the competitive stream! I get to be loud, silly, play and let my inner nutball come out!! 🤪 My Gymnastics community had a large role in shaping me as I grew up - my love of movement, my leadership style, how to motivate, how to teach/coach and so much more! 
Most importantly, it is FUN!!! Have you or your kids tried out gymnastics??? Check out one of the many local clubs around! Many have classes for 1 year olds right up to adult! 
My training style is influenced by my gymnastics training and coaching! Want to have a taste of training and conditioning like a gymnast? Let’s connect and get you moving!!! .

  • i just discovered this sweet gem of a photo taken on my grandparents' farm in 2014 by my sister @isiboo . I adore the blissful shape, expression and sunshine. - 
This image encapsulates what I think of when I think of retreat: freedom in body, in heart, lightness in spirit. This could easily have been taken on on of my long weekend retreats in Maryland at Blue Mountain Retreat Center -- I'm so excited to be going back for year FIVE over Memorial Day Weekend May 24-27th. Please check out sacredsourceyoga.com for details and registration (It sells out every year, and there’s just one private room left.) The theme is REFILL YOUR WELL, and we'll also be practicing meditation, functional movement, and fascia release. I can't wait. - 
Other upcoming events:
* Baltimore MD: April 6th @baltimoreyogavillage * Destin FL: april 12-14 @destinhotyoga * Richmond VA April 27th @yogarichmond * Washington DC May 17th @theyogashaladc
I hope to see you at one of these experiences! Tag your friends who need retreat or live in the Florida panhandle, Richmond, Baltimore, or dc! #yogaretreat

  • Morning workout... wind 💨 to your face = amazing resistance workout 🤗. It’s whipping out here in Kuna. Slightly freezing, but so thankful to be able to move. {just keep telling yourself that over and over. It’s not only true, it helps us focus on the good, instead of the ‘I don’t feel like doing this’ 😜}
HIIT WORKOUT: run, push up, triceps dips, one leg squats, jump squats, run, repeat. .

  • This was 2018. One of those days - that my daily mood was heavily depend on my training outcome. 82% of my training were not great, I went really hard on myself.

Looking back, those self made bad days were so unnecessary. End of 2018, I've decided to stop training for competitions. I needed to find balance in the love of fitness.

Almost end of 2019 Q1 now. Today, I struggled on the last rep of 195lbs back squat (a few sets of 5) It did affected me, for less than 3 minutes (compare to last time, 3 days 😂 ok i exaggerated a bit). I moved on to the next exercise. Continued with my life.

This is my type of progression now. Roads to healthier mindset. I had bittersweet memories whenever I looked back. I looked like I enjoyed training so much, deep down the pressure I gave myself almost drowning me from many aspects of reality like work, family, interests and opportunities. 
I hope those who are chasing their progressions do not fall into this trap. Train smart and know when to take a break before it breaks you (not just physically but mentally)

Fact: I was really relax on the day this video was taken.
Because social media is about posting happy stuff 😝
