Evan already making steady progress with his kettlebell swings in less than a week. Transitioned from the bilateral stance to unilateral without any band feedback 🙌🏻 He’s starting to feel his posterior chain light up as his quads aren’t competing for dominance... still more room for improvement but much better body mechanics than last week. This is important because when he’s running on the soccer field his glutes and hamstrings should be propelling his forward motion as his quads are reciprocating ⚽️ When the quads are “over dominant” then the body has poor help from the glutes and hamstrings which can lead to IT Band syndrome, lower back strain, knee injuries, or hip pain- something an athlete can’t afford 🙅🏻‍♂️ We look at how the body is meant to function and train it according to those fundamental principles for athletic development, injury prevention, and better function overall 😎 .

First attempt at this @functionalpatterns move 😅 plenty of dysfunctions but plenty of functional potential... scaps are over retracting and depressing, my structure is collapsing during the transitions, and I can’t keep my body extended 🙄 but I wouldn’t have been able to connect my body this way a month ago so I am seeing some progress and most importantly moving so much better in life outside of the gym 🤗 show some love if you’re trying to move better ❤️ . . Ps: shirt is off to see and show the positioning of parts of my body (like my shoulder blades 🤭) during the movement so I can start working on keeping tension in all the right spots as I move... key to eliminating and reducing joint pain 💁🏻‍♂️

Messing around with this @functionalpatterns movement in between clients... incredibly fun and incredibly challenging 😅 still a lot to work on but happy that I’m able to connect my body through multiple planes of motion without any pain 🤗 this gets the core and a whole lot of other muscles in one move... and takes care of cardio 😃

Working for the first time with Evan to reprogram his glutes for full function 💪🏻 undoing some bad habits school coaches have programed in for kettlebell swings that don’t translate to 3-d movement or optimally engage the posterior chain 😕 Evan is a soccer player and his body needs to be capable of moving through different planes of motion without acquiring an injury 🙅🏻‍♂️ still in our early stages of training but establishing a Functional foundation to operate from. Excited to see the progress we make before the season starts ⚽️ stay tuned 📡 . @functionalpatterns techniques and methods all the way for this guy 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻

Activating multiples muscles at once through various planes of motion every workout 💪🏻 it may not look like much but these guys know how to create tension intrinsically and maintain that tension while they move 🏃🏽‍♂️ this means they don’t need huge amounts of weight to feel like they’re getting a great workout, we make it burn with moderate weight so they can feel the movements and what muscles should be sustaining the movement so that the load doesn’t transfer to their joints and tear them down overtime 🙅🏻‍♂️ following these principles is what allowed them to resolve their lower back pain during exercise and most importantly in life outside of the gym so they aren’t limiting their quality of life 🕺🏻 .

Are @bere.fitness.sa and @haley.fitness.sa working out or just playing monkey in the middle with Daisy? 😂🐶 . Welllll... before Daisy interrupted, this exercise was integrating the entire body and burning some major calories 🔥Getting the heart rate up, glutes on fire, core rotating... Engaging multiple muscles at once and getting in some cardio 👊🏻 . Exercise inspired by @functionalpatterns

Arm day @functionalpatterns style 💪🏻 integrating the entire body with this exercise 😎 glutes, core, biceps and triceps in true contralateral fashion 🏃🏽‍♂️teaching the arms to engage in a real world functional way like throwing a ball with your dog 🐶

Windshield Wipers 👉🏻 rotation of the ribcage while the hips stay neutral ✅ Important to master because it teaches us to rotate from our thoracic spine and not the lumbar spine 🙅🏼‍♀️ if we are moving the entire body from hips to spine when we rotate then that causes the lower back to rotate when it shouldn’t. This leads to pain and tightness in the lower back that is all too common because most of us aren’t rotating properly 🤕 when the hips stay neutral as the ribs rotate then we start to engage our obliques to facilitate the rotation and the right muscles activate at the right time. That means no more lower back pain 🚫 If you can eliminate lower back pain during exercise then this trains the body to manage lower back pain in life outside of the gym. Like when you walk or run, play with your kids or grandkids, do chores around the house, and sit or stand all day 🤗 it all starts with exercising correctly 👍🏻 .

Double trouble core workout 😎 Denise didn’t like this superset very much but was happy with how her body responded to creating tension in the core thus releasing tension in her lower back 🙌🏻 . If you’re living with lower back pain we want you to know that you don’t have to anymore! Let us help you retrain your body to optimize its function and manage any aches and pains 🚫 . Shoutout to @functionalpatterns and their life changing techniques 😃

Maggie learning to swing the kettlebell in a more efficient manner. Instead of traditional swings with both arms we’re teaching her how to incorporate thoracic rotation into the swing by using one arm to swing and the other arm to reciprocate thus enhancing rotation and turning a kettlebell swing into a pretty awesome core exercise too 😎 . . She did an awesome job considering this is her first time with this kettlebell variation! Spine is neutral as she rotates her trunk which tells us that she’s rotating from her Ribcage and not her lower back which is key to prevent injury. Glutes are propelling the movement but we need to get the adductors to engage more to keep the knees from flaring out but all in good time 🤗 . . Exercise inspired by @functionalpatterns

Toni working with the club to improve her tennis game... and movement in general 💪🏻 . The first time she used the club she felt tension in her lower back... fast forward a month with a lot of @functionalpatterns corrective exercises in between and now her body is getting better at transmitting force through her myofascial slings! That means the spine and other joints aren’t compensating to move her body which means no pain and discomfort 💥 . Through the right exercises the body will start to reprogram movement patterns which reflect the way we move in everyday life. Whether that’s a tennis match or keeping up with grandkids, you shouldn’t have to live with pain or discomfort there’s a better way to improve your quality of life. We’re here to help, ask us how 📩

Shirley gettin it in on this rainy Saturday ☔️ Using the TRX to engage her slings... connecting her lat to opposite glute and shoulder to opposite hip 💪🏻 one exercise to hit everything 🥊 remember... all of our muscles connect in day to day functions so isolating them causes disconnection and poor function 🤭 .

Debbie making some important connections in her body and engaging her deep core muscles to help stabilize her body in this position 👌🏻 When Debbie first came to us she complained of chronic hip pain, we spent time doing mfr to help manage it but ultimately it was the way her body moved when she was outside of the gym that continually contributed to more hip pain. ⏭ Fast forward and by us working every week to reestablish the right muscle connections her body is starting to move better in real life so she doesn’t experience the nagging hip discomfort and the excessive urge to pop her hips... basically now when she moves her muscles distribute force and her joints aren’t constantly taking the impact. It goes to show that when your body is functioning well, pain and discomfort don’t limit your life anymore 👊🏻 . Shoutout to @functionalpatterns and their techniques! We’re adding better tools to our toolbox to better serve you 🔨

Jon working on traditional wall balls with a functional twist 💥 setting up in unilateral stance automatically challenges his balance and incorporates more muscles in a real life context 🏃🏽‍♂️ . . The reason we aren’t squatting with both feet is that it limits the potential of other movements and muscle connections 🚫 this version gives Jon the opportunity to add trunk rotation, take a step forward, backward, or laterally, and translates directly to his gait cycle... which is the root of human function 💯 improve your gait ➡️ improve your movements ➡️ improve your quality of life 🙆🏻‍♂️ . .

No more plantar fasciitis, no more lower back pain, no more “tight” traps 🙅🏻‍♂️less isolation; more contralateral reciprocation 😏 Jeff and Darrell’s first attempt at this one. They felt all the tension in the right places because of all the corrective exercises they have been drilling in behind the scenes 🤠 It’s one thing to look like you’re performing an exercise correctly. It’s another level to feel the exercise in the correct muscles while you’re performing it 👊🏻 Exercise inspired by @functionalpatterns

Abbie used to be in chronic pain that limited her capability in the gym and in real life... not anymore 😏 . Abbie always loves to challenge herself and that was part of the problem that lead her down a path of pain. Now when she challenges herself she knows how to anchor tension in her body to support her structure when she moves 🤩 this time last year Abbie didn’t have the ability to move like this without feeling pain right away, now she can perform movements like this with no discomfort and we’re starting to challenge her coordination and balance at the same time! . All of Abbie’s hard work behind the scenes is what allows her to do this! Thanks to @functionalpatterns techniques for establishing a strong foundation to operate from 💪🏻

No Pain🙅🏼‍♂️ Just Gains🙆🏻‍♂️ Marcy making nice progress with her movement capability 👌🏻 . Establishing muscular connections in the body to enhance exercise and every day movements. The right connections are important and make the difference between you feeling fatigue in your muscles or pain in your joints... the difference can lead down a path of injuries or the ability to live life fully 🤗 . Which path do you choose? 👇🏻

My wife popped in during her lunch break for a quick workout/stress reliever 🥊 . Fit fitness into your life whenever you can! That may mean a 30 minute workout during lunch, a 10 minute walk before bed, or a mile run in the morning... it’s all up to you 🤷🏻‍♀️ . Haley is working on some progressions to the @functionalpatterns basics 💁🏻‍♂️ still much to improve on but a month ago if she would have attempted this exercise her neck would be in severe pain and her knees would have felt like 80 year old knees. She’s starting to learn how to integrate her entire body with the movement so her muscles transmit force and not her joints 🙅🏼‍♂️ . Come see how you can live the pain free lifestyle that so many are starting to jump on board with 🛳 your workout shouldn’t tear your body down it should build it up 💪🏻

Leah’s first time on the ropes 😎 . She’s been working hard all summer and today was our last workout together because of back to school so she was eager to try her luck on the ropes! Good work Leah, I can’t wait to continue working with you next summer 💪🏻☀️

Jeff and Darrell making some nice progress with their functional movement while maintaining structural integrity- meaning their core and other foundational muscles stay engaged at all times while they’re moving to support the body and prevent unwanted pain and injuries👍🏻 . . A year ago when we attempted movements like these, lower back pain and “tightness” was always expected, plantar fasciitis was rampant, and neck pain was always an issue. Thanks to @functionalpatterns methodologies these issues are no longer issues- their only complaint is super sore muscles the next few days 😏 . . When you workout you should be feeling the tension in all the right places- your muscles should be the ones working hard, not your joints 🤕
