Working on some @functionalpatterns exercises that are waking up Trey’s posterior and anterior oblique slings and connecting them to the rest of his body through specific movements 🕺🏻the Slings connect our upper body with our lower body and are working anytime we move... especially when we walk, run, and throw or any variation of those foundational patterns🏃🏽‍♂️when we exercise it’s important to train these Slings if you want your body to be capable of functioning in the real world ⛹🏻‍♂️🏌🏽‍♂️⛷🤽🏽‍♂️

Haley hitting some kettlebell swings @functionalpatterns style 💁🏼‍♀️ . . Still have a lot to work on to make sure the movement is more fluid but Haley is feeling her oblique slings as she performs the movement 🙋🏼‍♀️ . . The oblique slings are a necessary piece of the puzzle if you want to dial in on moving your body better. Moving better when you play sports, walk, run, throw, climb stairs, grocery shop, and literally anything you do on a daily basis that requires movement. Remember the slings connect your upper and lower body so it’s important to utilize them properly during exercise in order to move well in life outside of the gym 🙆🏼‍♀️

Marianne’s first attempts on these variations of the row @functionalpatterns style 💥 integrating the entire body into the movement with the specific purpose to make a connection between multiple muscles in a pattern that replicates the way our muscles harmonize with each other in life outside of the gym 🏃🏽‍♀️🏌🏼‍♀️💃🏻 . . . Marianne still has work to do but a month ago these exercises would have overwhelmed her and she wouldn’t have been able to perform them 🤯 now she’s connecting her body on a deeper level and able to concentrate on multiple connections and how each muscle works together with other muscles to facilitate movement 👩🏼‍🔬 . . Every one of these exercises implements trunk rotation (which we need to work on enhancing) and connects the lats to the glutes during the movement 🍑 can you see the connection happening? When you see it comment “👀” below... if you don’t know what is going on with these exercises and the reason we exercise intentionally, send us a message so we can share the value with you 🤓

Eileen’s first time utilizing the cable bar to rotate her torso and engage her obliques in sequence with other muscles. A must learn for her because she battles with neck pain that limits her day to day abilities and dysfunctional core muscles are the main culprit ☹️as soon as her core disengages on these movements she immediately compensates by sticking her head forward and shrugging her shoulders, her body is saying ‘we can do it’ but the way her body is going about it is causing compression and leading to pain 😓 it’s not about “no pain no gain” here, we’re all about “no pain just gain.” An impactful mindset to adopt if you’re serious about getting to the root of that reoccurring spine or joint pain, it takes time to reprogram the body for sustainability versus dealing with break downs and flare ups every couple days or weeks 😩 Eileen came to us a little over a month ago with lower back pain and neck pain that was constantly dictating how she could spend her day and in that time we have resolved her back pain and are in the process of reducing her neck pain 😃 we still have a journey ahead of us but we’re still only establishing a firm foundation to operate from then the real results come 😎 thanks @functionalpatterns for equipping us with the best tools in the toolbox

Swipe left to see what Darrell is doing just hanging out on the wall 🤔 . This is just one way to use a lacrosse ball or tennis ball to relieve tension between your shoulder blades. Make sure you stretch that arm across your body to really get deep into those muscle fibers 😈 . If this doesn’t help you then send us a message and we’ll show another technique to help with your locked up shoulder blades ✅

A buso ball, a landmine press, and a dog... what better way to workout 🤷🏻‍♀️ . Trying to function better... one workout at a time 💪🏻 hitting some @functionalpatterns moves to integrate the entire body with each exercise 💃🏻 work more muscles; burn more calories 🔥 . Who else likes to spend their time in the gym wisely? 🙋🏻‍♀️🙌🏻

Regina working hard at adding trunk rotation to her TRX rows for more oblique engagement 💥 still got some work to do but transitioned from both arms to single arm, now working on getting those ribs to rotate 🤓 . . Step up your fitness training and make the most of your time by involving more muscles in one shot instead of isolating one muscle at a time 🙅🏻‍♂️ . .

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 😃

More clips from last Sunday’s workout with the crew 💪🏻 . Getting some functional movement gainz with these @functionalpatterns exercises 💯 . Blasting multiple muscles at once, can you see the body connections 👀 core rotation driven by the obliques, pecs, and lats, as the lower body is propelled by the glutes and hamstrings 💥 . Simple yet complicated 😏

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 🕺🏻 .

Toni putting her core to work in this rotation circuit created to help improve her movement on the tennis court 🎾 since tennis is such a rotational sport we have to teach her ribcage to rotate so she’s using her oblique slings and not her lower back muscles 🙅🏼‍♀️ incorporating the step into the rotational exercise allows the upper body to connect with the lower body the same way it does during a tennis match, if we only rotate the upper body during exercise then when it’s game time her lower body won’t have any reference of how to operate in conjunction with the upper body 🧠 . The band wrapped around her right arm is giving her body an active feedback technique to promote external rotation of her shoulder. Currently she’s stuck in an internal rotation due to the right arm being her serving arm in tennis and this is starting to jack with the positioning of her shoulder blade and limiting the muscle activation of her right lat which then inhibits her ability to rotate to her right side... can you see how the entire body is connected 👀 proper function is determined by the right muscles firing at the correct time and in the correct position so if something is inhibited your body still moves but it will compensate and cause poor movement which eventually leads to injury 🤕 . If you’re trying to compete and prevent injuries while you optimize your movement or if you’re just trying to live life injury free then we’re here to help 💪🏻 .

Clay and Lori incorporating contralateral reciprocation into their exercises because it engages multiple muscles at once and connects the body in a sequence that the muscles encounter in real life 💪🏻 . The reason we don’t prioritize muscle isolation with our training is that the body never uses only one muscle at a time when it’s functioning during athletic moments, when we walk, or even activities of daily living. We train the body the way it’s meant to function to improve your quality of life 👍🏻 . Exercise inspired by @functionalpatterns

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 👍🏻 .

I’ve been working with Jeff and Darrell for over 2 years and each year we make more progress but the most progress we’ve made has been the last 3 months! Implementing more and more @functionalpatterns training has significantly reduced chronic lower back pain, neck tension, plantar fasciitis, and tight hips that limited their movement capabilities during exercise and the way their bodies moved in real life. A year ago exercises like these would have not looked as clean and would have lead to compensations elsewhere in the body that would have manifested as pain during the workout or the next day. And let’s face it when you’re in pain it lays you up and restricts what your body can do- sure you can live with it but these guys got tired of having to “live” with it because that’s not living at all! They tried a lot of approaches over the years but the last 3 months they’ve made the most progress towards enhancing their quality of life! Jeff can walk several times a week without dealing with plantar fasciitis and Darrell doesn’t have lower back pain when he has to stand all day at work ❌ . The difference in the last 3 months is that we are training their bodies the way the human body evolved to function. Connecting multiple muscles with each exercise the way their bodies connect in real life- we don’t prioritize isolation exercise because too much isolation creates a disconnection between muscles in the body and then the way we move starts to decline. If we repeat these patterns long enough we wonder why we are always in acute pain or chronic discomfort, and why our balance suffers the older we get- it’s not that you’re old it’s just more time that your body has spent walking through life “disconnected” and our movement quality starts to suffer. When you train to reconnect your body you’ll find that walking is easier, balance isn’t a debilitating issue, the pain you’ve been living with starts to decrease, and you regain control over what you want most out of your health and fitness lifestyle 💯 . If you’re tired of having to live with a lower quality of life because of pain, discomfort, and other movement restrictions then contact us to set up a FREE consultation 📩

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 🤭 . Exercise inspired by @functionalpatterns 💥

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 💪🏻

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 🤕
