AIRVO 2 - The face of the future.
The #airvo by #fisherandpaykel is definitely my favourite therapy device at the moment and is severely under-utilised in management of chronic lung diseases.
The airvo works by providing optimal humidification to the airway which significantly increases the ease of airway clearance. 🌊
Research shows that in patients who produce >5mls of secretions per day using the airvo for a little as 2 hours per day can increase lung function ( FVC and FEV1), exercise tolerance and quality of life. 📈💯 We're currently auditing our airvo users to look for any dose- response relationship. Stay tuned for more results!! 📚🔰 #functionallungs#respiratory#research#physiotherapy#respiratorytherapy#cysticfibrosis#cfirl#bronchiectasis

ISCHEMIC PRECONDITIONING IMPROVES TIME-TRIAL PERFORMANCE IN TRAINED CYCLISTS:
IPC has been shown to be a performance-enhancing tool that can improve performance by 1.1-2.5% on average. This has the possibility to confer significant benefits in elite athletics.
PURPOSE: This study investigated the acute effects of IPC on aerobic function (including VO2 kinetics in moderate- and heavy- domains) and endurance performance in well-trained cyclists (regularly competing in cycling events).
METHODS: Nine participants performed either a SHAM or IPC protocol (4x5 200 mm Hg or 50 mm Hg) followed by an incremental ramp test, a square wave protocol (moderate- to heavy- alternating cycling workloads) and a 4km time trial performance.
RESULTS: While most outcomes were equivocal between SHAM and IPC, 6 athletes (75%) improved their time-trial performance by 4.4 +/- 3.7 seconds and the overall group performed 0.9% better in their time-trial than SHAM IPC, showing a small, but beneficial performance enhancement.
DISCUSSION: Of note, in this study, moderate-intensity exercise domains were not influenced by IPC but a reduction in the slow component of VO2 was observed in the heavy intensity domain, suggesting a priming effect. IPC may influence fatiguability in type II fibers through nitric oxide release, increasing their metabolic efficiency (they are able to perform for longer before fatiguing - the “slow” component). Future studies should investigate exactly what type of exercise would benefit most from IPC protocols.

Working out 🏋🏼 has become a way to de-stress and get in shape for new parents, Joe and Irina. To capitalize on their time to squeeze in a workout, they have opted to come together. Previously, they did individual workouts, now they have added the challenge of doing it together. One workout down and they left sweaty and still talking to each other. So a win win all around. #email@example.com@josebobpablo
[Seek the Steelman]
Wise words from someone we are lucky enough to have as a mentor and guest lecturer for @thelevelupinitiative.
Something we should all strive for on our pursuit of being “less wrong.” Seek the Steelman!
As opposed to a straw man argument, a steelman would be seeking to understand the most accurate representation of your counter parts argument.
When we seek to understand those whom we are engaging with constructive debate - it is so important to truly take the time to listen and learn what their perspective is so we can have a more fruitful outcome. ⠀

FUNCTIONAL FRIDAY \\ The single leg barbell RDL 💥 is a favourite in our gym, as it can be applied to anyone from the elite to the elderly. This exercise can be performed with a band, dumbbells, a kettlebell or even without weight, and is hands down 🙌🏼 one of the most effective posterior chain strengthening exercises around! •
Focus on quality over quantity when beginning the single leg RDL - form is the number ☝🏻 priority!
If you spend a lot of your day hunched over at a computer screen 💻 not moving much 🙋🏻♀️ then you may well enjoy moving more through your thoracic spine. Typically, we spend a lot of the day hunched over in FLEXION. The body likes to move and create BALANCE, so create some EXTENSION in your life fool 😎 You’ll thanks us later 💯💥 Don’t worry some people have more movement through here, some People have less - it’s all good and it’s all normal! 😃 BUT, working on your thoracic extension might help your squat 🏋️♀️, bench press, chin up, overhead press and many more. Dooo it... 💪🏻
🔥FRONT BANDED DEADLIFT🔥
‼️We are big fans of using this variation of the deadlift when first teaching proper technique‼️
‼️A common mistake we see is allowing the bar to drift in front of the athlete during the pull. It’s extremely important to keep the bar as close to your body as possible to maximize your leverage advantage‼️
⚠️Adding a band in front of the bar creates a cue for proper lat engagement thus close bar control and improvement in bar path⚠️
✅So if you’re having trouble with bar path due to anterior drift or having difficulty feeling your lats kick in, give this one a try! Tag someone who could benefit from this. Let’s get strong.
Move smart. Fight smart.

IT BAND PAIN REHAB
IT band pain is the worst. This is coming from someone who has experienced it as an athlete and clinician. That ache that stops you from running more than 10 minutes but goes away as soon as you stop is such a tease.
It tends to be very mechanical in nature, usually relating to a movement dysfunction you need to fix. You feel the pain at your knee, but it usually comes from problems at the hip.
Fixing it can be tricky, but two areas that are always going to matter are the ability to lengthen (mobility) ability to control (stability) the leg.
This exercise is great because it’s kinda getting at both. You’re working on stabilizing the standing leg while moving the other.
And if you close your eyes it kinda feels like running. Kinda.

Slight hamstring strain with all of the sprinting I’ve been doing lately. Felt it was an appropriate time to share a thought as I work through my own ‘rehab’: Don’t neglect hip only (long-lever) hamstring work. Not all hamstring work needs to (or SHOULD) involve knee flexion. GET STRONG BEING LONG.
Call them whatever you want, as long as you’re doing them.
✅ Supine Straight Leg Bar Rolls?
✅ Supine Straight Leg ISO Bridge (bilateral or unilateral)
✅ Supine Banded Straight Leg Bridge (bilateral or unilateral - places a bit more emphasis on reactivity and stabilization)
No predetermined reps in mind, I’ve been doing one set of each to fatigue. Feeling ready for more action.

Whenever someone asks me, “What exercise should I do for _________?”, my Follow Up questions always involve why or how the pain or injury got there.
The reason for this barrage of follow up questions is because your injury tells me very little. ❗️It’s just a description of what broke last in most cases❗️
(Traumatic Accidents Are a Different Story)
What did the months, years, or decades of stress look like leading up to day you started having pain?
What were you doing when you first noticed pain or that “something was off”?
What is your current work/daily physical demands look like?
What other health complications do you have?
What is your current level of fitness and what activities do you enjoy doing that are fitness related?
💯These are just a FEW questions that need answering BEFORE we even get into discussion the “Issue”.
💥Your answer to these questions will be unique, as will the road map to recovery.💥
🔑Whether you have Plantar Fasciitis or a Disc Herniation, the ONE thing that remains constant in every rehab process is identifying and removing the noxious stimulus. After that, a well organized/individualized rehab plan will have a chance to work.

“Our audience should be familiar with the modern view of pain as a complex, protective output of the brain, rather than the reductionist biomedical view of a sensation produced by tissue damage. This output is heavily modulated by a combination of biological, psychological, and social factors — always. However this model is not limited to pain in its applicability - it is useful to explain other complex human experiences that are typically viewed through a similarly reductionist lens.
The brain is constantly taking in biological and psychosocial data, interpreting & contextualizing it, and acting to optimize our survival. This may involve the production of pain, activating a stress/inflammatory response, or even generating fatigue that *limits* us in order to avoid catastrophic physical failure. The brain has thus been described as the “Central Governor” of performance.
It should therefore not be surprising when trainees complain of new-onset aches & pains in correlation with very high levels of fatigue and life stress, as all of these can represent the coordinated protective responses of a “threatened” brain.
The reductionist biomedical view of pain would result in a coach's immediate jump to the tissue level, searching for a “movement error” to confirm their bias in the same way a physician might immediately order an X-ray or a chiropractor might hunt for (and, of course, find) “misalignment”.
However, a more comprehensive assessment of the PERSON often reveals that they have been grinding through 10/10 effort sessions for days, weeks, or even months on end. They may have substantial psychosocial stressors affecting their life as well. The BBM rehab practice sees this every day with our clients, and these can be quite challenging to manage, particularly in the context of unrealistic expectations.
Of course, sometimes “shit just happens” that can’t be explained or predicted. But since subjective internal load (RPE) appears to be 1 of the strongest predictors of both performance and injury risk, we should probably hedge our bets by using training approaches that effectively manage training loads, fatigue, & expectations”
How things are looking 8 days post surgery! I have 3 incisions, 2 of which are where the lose bone fragments were removed from my knee joint. As well, where they went in and poked holes in the remaining attached piece of calcified bone on my knee cap, to help promote blood flow to that part of the bone again. I’ll admit I wasn’t expecting recovery to be this hard. Still pretty swollen and quite sore, but now that I’ve started physio, I can already start to feel things slowly getting better🙏🏽 Thanks to my amazing hubby for tending to my every need, mucho love you🥰 @codydrobot#kneesurgery#surgeryrecovery#kneerehab#physio

Went to the gym today, did a full body workout that took a looong time. You can see my abs popping :p (some days they pop more than other days.. it’s normal). At some point I was sooo hungry that I left right away without stretching. Went home, ate my lunch (in stories) and stretched afterwards at home (video ☝🏼). If you are the kind of person who goes to the gym frequently without stretching, I can understand, you just want to get out of there 😂 .. however, mobility exercises or stretching are equally important. Do them! ;)

Tag a Friend Who Wants to be More Flexible!
📍Terms to Know
Stretching without using an external force. You are actively contracting a muscle group to get a stretch on the opposing muscle group. Hence the word “active.”
Example: While standing, raising your leg up with knee straight to stretch the hamstrings.
2️⃣Passive Stretching (AKA Static Stretching)
Using an external force to assist you in the stretch. The external force can be gravity, a strap, a stretching device, or a friend.
Example: While standing, hinge forward at the hip to stretch the hamstrings.
Muscle cannot lengthen anymore.
1️⃣In a study comparing the two types of stretching, the active stretching technique produced the greater gain in active knee extension ROM, which was almost completely maintained 4 weeks after the end of the training, whereas the passive technique completely lost the gain.
2️⃣In another study, they found that the active stretching technique was more time efficient compared with Passive stretching and it needed a lower compliance to produce effects on flexibility.
3️⃣In a 12-week active stretching program, they found that hip flexion improved with passive stretching when performed 3 days per week with a stretch daily dose of 180 s in both populations (normal and limited hamstring flexibility).
💡It’s worth noting that active stretching can be limited by strength. For example, if you are laying on your back trying to raise you leg up as high as you can, and the hamstrings don’t feel like they are limiting you, the hip flexor just may not be strong enough to get you through the range of motion. So strengthening the hip flexor would help increase range.
Both have similar impacts on flexibility. You can do both by first doing passive stretching and then do active stretching to help reduce the occurrence of passive insufficiency. This will help in maintaining that new range of motion.
Comment below! Let’s talk!

SHOULDERS & SPINE
Can you move into awkward positions without freaking out?
You need to be able to rotate and move into positions that seem awkward and challenge you (in a good way).
This lumbar locked rotation does just that.
I like to use this as a warmup before exercises and also add it into any rocking movements.
Years ago, I suffered a 3rd degree AC separation - google it 😊 -
Anyhoo, rotating to my right in this position is very challenging and somewhat limited.
It still feels good and my range improves as I practice.
Give it a try and tag a friend who needs some shoulder and spine love.

🚨 NECK PAIN - MOBILITY AND STRENGTH🚨
With neck pain, we may need to address mobility and strength. Common area to check✔️ is the posterior neck, including upper traps (UT). The UT many times can be stiff or “tight” due to many reasons, such as after a long work/school📚 day, stress😡, or hard lifting session🏋🏻♂️. In this case, a combination of soft tissue mobility and active strengthening can assist in reducing neck pain.
👉🏻 The following videos🎥 (SWIPE LEFT) can be implemented to assist in reducing neck pain/stiffness (2 mobility and 2 strengthening movements):
1️⃣ UT Overpressure w/ Neck Rotation (lacrosse ball)
2️⃣ UT Overpressure w/ Shoulder Flexion (lacrosse ball)
3️⃣ Prone Angels
4️⃣ Quadruped Back Extension w/ Neck Rotation

@Regran_ed from @performancecoach_wilmot - TANTRUMS ✅
In so many rehab progressions, hamstrings included, velocity progressions are often overlooked. I love using tantrum variations for high speed hamstring work.
Here we can see 3 variations, a supine proximal option, a prone distal option and finally a standing proximal option that requires the integration of a stance leg.
Great progressions for end stage rehab of those hamstrings.
