Such an important thing for anyone is to keep the body moving. Not just the muscles, ligaments and tendons but moving your joints, through controlled range of motion, on the daily will have immense benefits in all movement you decide to embark upon.
We were designed to move. So let’s do that, often and with purpose.
Also, wearing moon socks makes you jump higher...🤟🏼 PC: @joegulizia
Apologies for the hiatus! I had a long sports weekend with the fam and didn’t really have a chance to record/edit/post yeah yeah yeah whatever right?! 😂😂
I want to finish strong here with the last 3 days of our 30 day “build a ninja hip” series and I think I have a good one for ya!
For Day 2️⃣8️⃣ we’re diving into some serious CARs: Side plank hip CARs💪🏼
I’m simply doing a global hip CAR as I maintain the side plank position. Also I’m doing a bent leg side plank, for some reason I wanted to try it and it happened to be a little harder since I never do it 😂Feel free to have the bottom leg straight or softly locked out
If I did this simply from a side lying position, I could use any level of stress by consciously irradiating (creating body tension in surrounding tissue area) 💥
Just like most training programs, a healthy balance of low, moderate, and high stress/intensity is needed over time. The side plank is not a day one option or an easy position to maintain so this is definitely a more intense option!
I like to consistently challenge my nervous system and this variation certainly does that. Killing 🦅 🦅 with one stone by training my hip capsule as I get my core strong as fuck👊🏼

Side-laying Hip CARs variations (1/2, Capsule) from a couple weeks ago at @kinstretch certification course @humantwopointzero in Ottawa 🇨🇦 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Side-laying base-position is one of my favourite variations to first teach someone about there hip due to the bio-feedback the ground gives the opposite side of the hip. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The side-laying setup also allows more “access” to hip without involving gravity as much as it would in comparison to standing or quadruped which can be a good first teaching tool when teaching CARs for the hip. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I usually like to emphasize spending more time behind the ear in the side-laying variation, this is a common ‘’sticky-zone’’ and in the side laying variation, this can allow someone to slow down that motion and spend more time where it sucks as opposed to other variations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You can progressively over-load this bad boy in many ways, but a couple that I’ve been tinkering with are: a side-frame (side plank position) or add some external load with ankle weights along with a straight leg. (video not-shown, its on the queue)
Apple Phenolics promote mitochondrial activity via mitochondrial biogenesis in primary chondrocytes - regeneration of cartilage to improve joint and mobility.
It protects and renews joint by regrowing the cartilage which may reduce pain and increase mobility.
Along with Neck and Shoulder pain, usuall comes with A stiff Thoracic Spine (Upper Back). Here are some staple t-spine mobilizations in the @advanced.movement rehab Protocols. Our friend @guerrillazen showing us how it done!
MOBILIZE YOUR THORACIC (UPPER BACK) by @guerrillazen
Looking to improve performance and lower your chances of hurting your shoulders, neck, and low back?
Well, if you are like most people then your upper back (thoracic spine) is stiff and in need of more mobility.
In this video i show you how to mobilize for more extension and flexion as well as rotation. All you need is a foam roller.
Let me break this down.
If there is one thing I want you to remember it is the phrase “motion is lotion”. In order to bring mobility to a joint all that is required is repetitious movement to take place within the joint. This is exactly what we are doing with these exercises.
In the first one we are using the #foamroller as a fulcrum to get the upper body (thoracic spine specifically) to bend across it.
In the second one we are locking the knees and pinching them together. From here we are rotating the body and producing motion in the thoracic spine.
TIPS for these exercises.
FIRST EXERCISE: Do your best to tilt the pelvis up tog wars your face and keep the core braced. We are trying to produce movement in the UPPER back, NOT the lower back. Keeping a little tension in the core will help to prevent the low back from arching a lot.
SECOND EXERCISE: Pinching the knees together and keeping the core semi tight is key (just like the first one). Again, we are trying to rotate from the upper back, not the lower back!

Whew! Topped off a solid 45 minutes training hips today with straddle and swimmers hovers. Talk about challenging!
I wish I had more videos of where I started because these don’t look all that impressive until you know where my deficits were to begin with!
I have been consistently working on my straddle position for a few months, and whaddya know, it’s getting better! (Funny how that works!) #moveyourbody#kinstretch#jointhealth#middlesplits#doyouevenirradiate#doanything#controlyourself

Everyone has rolled an ankle at one point in their life. Start bulletproofing your ankles by performing this isometric exercise that will get your ankle stronger in the position that most ankle sprains occur. Do 3 sets of 10 second isometric contractions at least a few times a week and your ankles will be ready for anything. #bestrongbemobile

REDUCE, ELIMINATE & PREVENT Joint Pain!
CLAIM YOUR BOTTLE AT
a cup of @bonafideprovisions organic 🍖 bone broth is exactly what my body needed this morning. I drink it for immune system support, gut health, and to fight inflammation. In addition, bone broth supports hydration, strengthens joints and bones, boosts detoxification and nourishes the skin. I at least try to drink a cup of bone broth twice a week! It’s a miracle worker, especially on days when my body is tired and my immune system feels weak. I like to heat it up in a pot, throw a little bit of celery, cilantro, and a little salt for extra flavor. 😘
In 2017 after attending the FRA seminar lead by @drmchivers and @rannyron@onnit in Austin TX. I came back with way more then the ability to asses joints and create programming based on the findings. I came back with (HOPE) that after 10 years of chronic neck pain and shoulder pain that the FRC applications l learned years prior pulse the help of FR treatments could get me out of this dark pit of pain I was in.
The amount of time and money 💰I had spent over the years trying to find a solution is out of this world. Let’s just say if it was in my savings right now I’d be a rich man lol.
Since that FRA I’ve been putting in countless hours of mobility training and flying to San Francisco to receive FR treatments from @briangfox. I’ve needed both sides of the FRS system in order to make progress and get out of pain. It’s been a super bumpy road of relapses and moments of freedom.
Over the course of this year n a half @drmchivers also helped with one of the most difficult aspects to recovering, the mental side of the equation. My thinking would get stuck obsessing over the pain pulling me back down into hopelessness. He knew the way out of that obsession was by helping me see the progress we where making and to look at where we started and how far we had come. Those conversations have made a huge impact in the treatment process being successful.
When we started I couldn’t even make a basic neck circle ⭕️ like the one in these videos with out all kinds of neurological tension, closing angle pinches and closing angle pain. My current report is that in these videos I no longer have any neck discomfort or pain within my ranges of motion.
The past few months I’ve been adding in some strength n conditioning testing things out. Which is the point of treatment. I’m still in the testing phase but it’s light years from where I was.
In conclusion this post is for anyone who has become hopeless within there search to become pain free. There is hope, there is a way, keep searching it can get better. This has taken a lot of work and a lot of surrender.
I also would like to thank @locrao and @roypagedc for helping me locally with treatments it’s taken a village.

Many of you don’t know that I nurse a busted elbow and a bum knee. I’ve dealt with them for years! Often I have modify exercises so as to not aggravate the injury or protect them when they are inflamed. Like today - enter fall dampness!
I used to cycle through pain meds like Motrin and Tylenol to manage the pain and discomfort. Even used prescription strength meds!When I started having liver trouble, all that had to end!
I started doing research to find something that would help but not cause issues with my organs.
I learned that the herb Cissus Quadrangularis is great for helping with bone & joint health along with relieving arthritis pain, osteoporosis, gout, body building ware and tare, menstrual cycles cramps and more! Most of which I face!
I went looking to see where I could get it! I found it in a supplement called #jointmobility from @1stphorm !
Each day I take up to 4 caps. Two with breakfast and then two in the afternoon as needed. For the most part, I have no issues! Not with my gout, arthritis, knee pain or my busted elbow, not do I have those terrible monthly cramps anymore!! It’s been wonderful!
CQ (cissus Quadrangularis) is also known as Devils Backbone, veldt grape, hadjod or pirandai and is derived from a plant in the grape family. It’s been used in traditional Indian medicine for hundreds of years too, which is cool seeing as I’m married to an Indian ❤️. In my head, it’s like I am bringing back his traditions from generations ago!
Joint Mobility is not for everyone, however it works wonderful for me! I can keep climbing stairs, go on hikes and exercise with little to no discomfort from my joints!

Jenn knows it takes hard work, discipline and a great team to keep a competitive athlete in the game. So proud to be part of Jenn's team.
Are you sore and stiff in the morning? Morning soreness is often caused by the lack of control or awareness of joints and muscles. Starting your day with therapeutic and focused movement drills can be the best way to bring your body out of pain and loosen up. Here are some quick tips you can start using first thing in the morning:
▶Try moving your joints in circles. 🔄 Non-linear movements provide a stronger stimulus to your brain than static stretches and this is the fastest way to gain control over your joints.
▶ Move your feet! 👣There are around 55 joints in your foot and ankle, and how those joints function plays a big role in how your body handles the forces from walking and everyday movement.
▶Shower in the morning to help prep your body for the day. If you struggle with tightness and pain in the morning, try incorporating a shower to help increase awareness of joints and muscles. 🚿

Throwing is an enormous joy of life. Along with jumping, running, climbing, and crawling.
Because it requires large forces and large ranges of motion, throwing has been slow to come back to my shoulder. It was several months after surgery before I could even THINK about throwing.
The mobility and mechanics aren’t great, and it doesn’t yet feel super comfortable, but just being ABLE to throw is amazing.
On days I can throw, it feels like I’ve been gifted a richer life.
What’s so neat is that as mobility has improved (with lots of work) throwing has automatically improved, even without practice!
Healthier joints = better movement potential. Thanks to @drandreospina and the whole FRS team for imparting that upon me over the last few years.
So...get to it and you just might surprise yourself 😆

Got cranky shoulders? Stiff, sore and impinged? Or do you just want better mobility?
Welcome to loaded mobility. Weighted eccentrics are a good way to learn to control what range of motion you have, as well as helping you expand that range/control.
These rotational eccentrics cause adaptations to the joint capsule of the shoulder. Over time and with effective loading the capsule becomes much more capable of handling whatever you throw at it and it starts to move better and hurt less. Eccentrics cause tissue adaptations along the lines of the stretch. So effectively you are stretching and strengthening in one go!
Why rotation? Well we start with rotation because without rotation there is much less "space" for the capsule to move. Without space stuff starts to get stiff, sore and impinged. Create more space by improving how well your shoulder rotates.
Start by slowly loading what you can and work to expand the weight and the range of motion. If you suck at rotating and can't go very far then this will help but you may need to start with some isometrics in the stretch position (PAILS). Do not start with these if your shoulder is very acutely painful, see someone professional and get them to help you calm it down before moving onto something like this.
Lastly remember that eccentrics take a little longer to recover from so don't overdo it by adding tons of volume. Or by doing alot of other things.

CARs every damn day! Not that kind of 🚘 but this ->Controlled Articular Rotations<- .
What I’m doing here are CARs for my hips (my fav!). I do CARs in the morning to check in with my body and also before a workout as part of my warmup 💪🏼
With high effort you could do it as a workout as well 💦.
With full concentration take your joints through your Full Range of Motion.
So good for raising awareness of your ROM and maintaining healthy joints 🙌🏼.

Doing mediocre things with epic music kinda makes them feel a little less mediocre.
I always joke around with my KINSTRETCH students that we can’t make KINSTRETCH pretty. There will never be a “faces of KINSTRETCH” on a banner in your local Lululemon.
You know which ones I’m talking about- the yoga girl smiling in her perfect asana.
Too bad everyone doing KINSTRETCH looks like they’re being tortured or about to poop their pants.
Anyways- I actually *like* how we don’t have to try and make a flow-y class.
Nothing wrong with flows. I just think it gets competitive to make them pretty and aesthetic.
Nothing is competitive in my KINSTRETCH class.
Everyone’s just working on themselves to #makeshitworknice (quote by Dr. Spina)
But- at the end of my personal practice- I occasionally like to just piece some isoMP’s together to make what appears to be a little flow. Not for the purpose of flowing. But just to check in and make sure shit is working nice.
Work on the parts. Then the sum of the parts will work nice.
The goal is to not get better at KINSTRETCH. The goal is to use KINSTRETCH as a tool so you can get better at whatever you want to get better at.
Sports. Flows. Lifting weights without pain. Picking up your kids. Whatever your activity is. KINSTRETCH is for you.

Today was a Mobility/Stamina Day!
what does that mean to us? It means that our training session needed to include end range of motion and long duration brutalizing sets!
If you thought the thigh master was awesome you’ll love this! Remember back in the 90’s when people used to say “pump it!”. Yeah... they were on to something.
In our world it’s called a Terminal Flick. The terminal flick has multiple applications. In this case we are doing band loaded flicks at our honest end range of motion. This is a great way to build strong, reactive, coordinated joints! And the additional bonus is that terminal flicking challenges the midline more than any insta-famous dead bug!
Join our Kruse Elite community from around the world and come nerd out with us! I have so much cool sh$t to show you!!!
Movement is Medicine
Did you know that sitting still for too long can put you at a higher risk for joint pain? The less we move, the more stiffness our joints may experience. If you find yourself sitting on the couch, driving for extended periods of time, or working at a desk all day long it is essential to your joint health that you make movement breaks a priority!
Don’t stress yourself out about making these breaks long and excessive. Start small by taking a movement break at least 1 minute for every hour you’re stagnant. Move with intention and focus on your breath; your body will thank you!
