A few thoughts…

1.  I’ve spent some time going through Neuromechanics of Human Movement, as I found this quote to be interesting:  “…the function of a muscle depends critically on the context in which it is activated.”  I believe that too often we look at the body in a textbook definition of function.  Does the rotator cuff externally rotate the humerus or does it decelerate internal rotation or does it compress the GH joint?  Does the piriformis externally rotate the thigh or is it an internal rotator?  It’s not so black and white.

2.  Check out this article from the Arizona Daily Sun in which I cover a the importance and a few strategies for deloading to help you reach higher levels of performance on the road, track, and trail.

3.  I’ve been rethinking my use of movement prep.  While I’m most definitely still using my dynamic movements, I’ve begun to add in some pre-dynamic thermogenics.  When possible I’m having my athletes do extensive slideboard intervals with some focused trigger point work during the rests.   Immediately after we get into our traditional movement prep work.  So far, athletes are feeling much better moving through bigger ranges of motion.

4.  Have a great Labor Day weekend.  Nothing beats good food, good friends, and good times with family.  If you’re up to anything exciting, be sure to let me know.

Best regards,

Carson Boddicker
