Of course, electric vehicles improve air quality, it’s a no brainer! Why do I need to read this article? That’s what you’re probably thinking. But, there are studies that question the benefit of EVs.
This study out of Northwestern University puts another point in the win column for EV adoption. When put head to head with internal combustion engines, electric vehicles come out on top. Even factoring in when the electrics are getting their charge from electricity generated by combustion sources, such as coal.
Posted @withrepost • @jenni_rawlings You must try this! Jenni is a genius for this one. Jenni’s words below describe how to perform this version of Pigeon Pose correctly. Also click the link in our bio for more ideas on how to keep your hips happy for many years to come! “Have you ever thought about combining reclined pigeon with #evilshittodowithblocks ? Well don’t worry if you haven’t because I’ve already thought about this for you - heh heh!
. . .
For this move, we start in regular old reclined pigeon pose, but then we back out of our full end range a bit and grab a block and place it in front of our pigeon-leg foot.
. . .
The block gives us something to push into as we work to keep that pigeon leg exactly as it is in pigeon pose while we reach the other leg straight forward to a hover.
. . .
After we hover the other leg straight for a bit, we can return it and take our normal reclined pigeon pose, letting our legs come a little closer in toward our chest if we’ve opened up some extra range.
. . .
Then we repeat by backing out of our full range a bit, pushing our foot into the block to maintain external rotation, and reaching the other leg forward. (We get a bit of core work here too as that leg hovers! 👍🏽)”
You know how sometimes things just don't feel right? Sometimes we can identify what doesn't feel right quickly, other times the cause escapes us.
This was the case this morning. I was pulling from a prone position and feeling like something was off just a little. I videotaped a set, and there it was. I was pitched into heavy lumbar extension while laying on my belly. Check out the first clip. Can't really deny it when it's right there.
So I moved on to some single sided core activation movements (second clip) and woke that whole thing up!
The final clip you can clearly see a more engaged core supporting lumbar neutral throughout the set. In many cases, the order that we perform exercises may matter more than the exercises themselves!
If you need help assessing your technique or getting things feeling "balanced" again, then be sure to click on the link in our bio and get scheduled for an initial analysis session. #functionalfitness#fitness#gym#workout#exercise#longevity#injury#Charlotte#speed#chiropractic#power#quickness#agility#stability#recovery#strength#conditioning#personaltraining#athletes#baseball#mobility#flexibility#core
Uneven loading of weights imposes a greater perturbation (disturbance or oscillation) of the spine and this requires the brain (more specifically the cerebellum) 🧠 to do A LOT more error correction. We are not symmetric 🏄🏼♂️ as humans, one side is more stable, one side is stronger, one side more coordinated 🤾🏾♀️. So it would make sense that we can and should unevenly load our training so that the demands are different for each side of our body. The next questions is, how can we know which side to load more❓To guarantee that your training session produces a POSITIVE ✅👍🏼neurological response, you can do a variety of in-training assessments: balance, coordination (rapid pronation supination), or in this video a range of motion test. Every day for an athlete is different, athletes also differ by whether they need more pulling or pushing exercises, more flexor or extensor muscle facilitation. Smashing our head or body into a wall, will get you just that, a lot of rehab later and recovery to do later on 👎🏼. Best thing to do is test, whatever gives you a good result, repeat!

Once in a while I hear people give me this excuse for why they can’t improve their life:
“I want to commit to a program that will help me become free of my constant pain, increase my energy levels, lift my mood, and enable me to live the life I truly want for myself,” 😁
“but I just hate exercising! I have no strength or stamina and I just don’t like it!” 😬
Well what do you hate more?
Living in constant physical pain and emotional distress from not being able to live the life you want?
Experiencing some temporary discomfort from pushing your body’s limits?
I’ve noticed most people don’t focus enough on their future self because they’re so distracted by their present self.
They don’t fully realize and appreciate the fact that their future self is the SAME person as their present self. Because we can only ever experience the present moment!
Yet most of us happily sacrifice our future happiness to feel happy, or at least avoid discomfort in the current moment...
And then the moment is gone, and you suddenly find yourself in the future. Unhappy because you didn’t invest in that moment. You invested in a moment that is dead and gone. A moment that you can only enjoy by shutting out the present and retreating inside your mind to view your past.
Some people call that “living for the moment.” Which I’ll admit sounds like a sexy sentiment on its own. 💃
But when you peel back that facade, does that sound like the way you want to live?
I used to live this way, and I had fun for a while. But it did nothing for who I am today, except to teach me that I would no longer live my life that way.
And those who I coach 1-on-1 online, they are dedicated to their futures. They know they can’t go on living without doing everything in their power to create a better life for themselves. A freedom and happiness that can actually last. ✨ -
Sure exercising can feel like it sucks at first.
But many of us will actually learn to ENJOY it to some degree!
And even for those who never enjoy it, just constantly remind yourself of this:
Past the suck, lies GREATNESS! 🤩
And it CAN be yours!!
^ number one reason I always have holes in my socks ^
What’s my favourite way to stretch?
Working in my full range of motion! Passive or static stretching has its benefits, but I usually prefer active “stretching” by incorporating it into my strength training. Flexibility can get you into a deep lunge but mobility and healthy joints can (and should!) get you out.
But really - looking for a sock sponsorship 🧦. Tell your friends.

FLEXIBILITY TIP: One of the easiest ways to improve your progress of your pancake or seated straddle splits is to elevate the hips, which pushes your center of mass forward. The benefit of this is it allows us to get into a better pelvic position to maximize the stretch. The hamstring attaches to the back of the pelvis so we have to think about lifting the back of the pelvis off the floor (which is an anterior tilt of pelvis/spinal extension). I see a lot of people sitting on the floor while hunched and rounded over when they do the pancake stretch, meaning the pelvis is tucked under (posterior pelvic tilt) and the hamstrings are actually in a shortened position. This is the opposite of what we want. I use @betancourtmarcel to demonstrate what elevating the hips can do, as you can see he has the ability to accentuate the rotation of his pelvis to maximize the stretch. So no matter your level of flexibility, elevating the hips can benefit anyone trying to get more range in their pancake or feel like they aren’t making headway or have plateaued.

💥Foam Rolling Done Right💥
SWIPE for Video ➡️
💡While the hamstrings are infamous for being tight and needing to be stretched, a lot of hamstring and lower back problems aren't lacking stretching - but rather strengthening of this area
🏋️♂️Whether you're an athlete looking to run faster or pull more weight, or an every day 'athlete' looking to feel your best - give these strength movements a try
💪🏼 These straight leg bridging variations will challenge your hammies, glutes, and core all in one. One of the better uses of the foam roller I know 😉
🔑 Brace your core hard and drive through the heels. Don't rush into lifting one leg if you're having trouble on both legs

Heute im #tutorial : Shoulder Mobility🚀
1. Lege dich seitlich auf den Boden und positioniere deinen Arm rechtwinklig zur Schulter.
2. Versuche nun mit der freien Hand leicht den Arm Richtung Boden zu bewegen.
3. Wechsel anschließend die Seite und achte immer darauf, dass deine hintere Schulter am Boden bleibt
Diese Übung verbessert zum einen die Mobilität im Schulterbereich. Des Weiteren verhindert sie Schulterschmerzen
und lässt einseitige Defizite erkennen.💪
