Stretching Time Lapse

Stretching your muscles is important. Simple as that. There is a lot of nonsense about stretching out there, but when you stretch with awareness and in a mindful manner you can feel your body ease up. Paying attention to your form (core activation and symmetry) and correct breathing during stretching will help you unlock the muscle tightness mechanically, neurologically and hormonally. It's not difficult, but it takes time to learn and to accept that sometimes you really must hurry up slowly. Check us out at www.resilientthree.com, on FB, Instagram and twitter.

Resilient 3 - Floor is Lava

Go out and play! Life gets too serious and tiring. Find some trees and pretend to be Tarzan. Or Spider-Man. Or just the amazing tree climbing dude. A workout like this challenges every part of your body, it forces you to think a few moves ahead, and requires a bit of daring as well. This causes you to activate most of the different movement related neural pathways and even the creative and cognitive parts of your brain. No two runs are ever going to be the same and it will never get boring. Despite the minor scrapes, cuts and bruises, big smiles all around!

Resilient 3 - Shoulder Mobiliser

A lot of people suffer with painful, stiff and restricted shoulders. It's because they never move them properly through the full range of motion. In order for the shoulder to be strong and healthy, it needs to be challenged regularly. I went through three shoulder reconstruction operations in my late teens afte ice hockey injuries - with awareness and attention to movement my shoulders are better than they ever were. Start by moving slowly and with great awareness. Explore the movement to the end range and challenge by an extra 1% where you feel it stopping. Don't force anything - slowly tease the movement and it will pay you handsomely. For more movement ideas, please visit our website at www.resilientthree.com, and follow us on social media.

Resilient 3 - Seated Spinal Waves

These spinal waves are a great way to immerse into movement whenever and wherever you are. The three cardinal movements (flexion/extension, lateral flexion, rotation) can be easily achieved, even in the comfort of your office or home. The idea is to move very slowly to begin with and to feel your way through the movement as it ripples through the spine, one segment at a time. Rushing the movement will only hinder your practice and reinforce the existing restrictions in the spine and the rib cage. Gradually speeding up the movement will produce the fluid cascade of harmonious movement and truly unlock your rib cage and spinal mobility. Be very aware of your body through the movement and you will gain the greatest benefit. For more ideas, please visit our website at www.resilientthree.com, and follow us on social media.

Resilient 3 - Inverted Crunch

The inverted crunch is a great exercise for the whole body. It relies on good core and arm strength, as well as ability to grasp with the legs and hands. The concentric and eccentric contractions of most mid section muscles are achieved and full extension at both extremes of the movement enable full contraction/relaxation cycle of the muscle fibres. Ensure you have securely interlocked your legs around the branch before letting go with your hands!

Resilient 3 - Manual Foot Mobiliser

If you are suffering with tightness in the leg and foot muscles, balance problems or muscle weakeness (non neurological), get cramp, plantar fasciitis pain, or find your legs getting tired very quickly when running or walking, help is at hand. This manual foot and ankle mobiliser video is helpful for many joint and soft tissue related foot and ankle problems and can be applied anywhere, anytime. Your feet are robust and hardy pieces of kit, designed to handle forces many times your body weight - you can be quite vigorous and firm with this. You will not be able to cause damage, unless you really try.

Resilient 3 - Ankle Flexion Test

If you are struggling with tightness in the lower legs and ankles, you can use this simple ankle flexion test to gain objective data. Stand with head, back and heel against the wall. Make a mark on the wall where your finger naturally rests, slide down the wall (off loading the other leg) keeping the knee tracking straight over the foot. Do not allow the knee or the foot to rotate. Mark the bottom of the movement when your heel starts to lift off the floor. Measure the distance between the two marks. Compare the legs. Gross asymmetry (more than a couple of centimeters) can indicate on ongoing injury on the more restricted side, and may be an indicator of higher risk of future injury. Once the cause has been identified (by your chiropractor or other therapist) you can repeat this test during your rehab to gage your improvement.

Resilient 3 Superman

The Superman is a great exercise for engaging the core, the shoulder and the hip stabilisers together. Smooth and controlled movement relies on the ability to maintain form during the extensions as well as the transition phases of the exercise. To begin with it may be necessary to only move the arms or the legs. Once good control and form are obtained then it is beneficial to move both, the arms and the legs together. Always go for the smoothness of movement without compromises in the spinal angle. It can be very helpful to perform the exercise exceedingly slowly at times to give the brain enough time to compute the movement properly. For more ideas, please visit our website at www.resilientthree.com and follow us on social media.

Resilient 3 Thoracic Spine Mobiliser

This easy thoracic spine mobiliser (Cat - Camel exercise) is an old favourite of mine. You can gain a lot of movement in the spine and the rib cage, positively affecting breathing and even digestion. You can also challenge the proximal hamstring and gluteal mobility by keeping the hips as still as possible. For extra benefit you can sync your breathing to the movement and really start immersing yourself into the rhythm. Remember to not use your head as a lever so as to not strain the neck. The head only moves as far as comfortable. Relax the shoulders and arms and let you ankles and feet just dangle on the floor.
