Sunday Funday: Runner's exercise of the day.

Here is a quick video highlighting a great exercise for runners. This is an exercise that I like using with athletes that are struggling with overcoming issues with glute inhibition and proper core stabilization. Keeping your pelvis level and equal is very challenging and can be great as a corrective exercise for something like the rotary stability test on the FMS. You don't a TRX do to this either...any suspension trainer, sturdy rope, a plyobox, or a chair can work as well! Enjoy!

Two Quick New Videos

Hey Everybody,

Here are two new videos that I made this weekend. I am going to start making videos with stuff related to blog content, rehab exercises, running form, random reviews and et cetera. You may notice near the top that I now have a direct link to my YouTube page as well. The first video is an easy test to check your ankle mobility, specifically ankle dorsiflexion.

The second video is for a common exercise for runners. This is intended to be a hip extension and glute activation exercise but ends up being something else entirely! It makes me cringe to watch people do it improperly!

Hope you all have a great father's day and hope you had a great weekend! Here comes Monday...

Pain in your calves could be from a problem with your butt: A Case Study

Today I wanted to showcase a mini-case study of an athlete that I consulted with recently. This was a 22 year old female collegiate track and field athlete. This patient was a mid-distance runner that specialized in the 800m event.

The athlete complained of chronic pain at the musculotendinous junction of the Achilles tendon that had been recurrent at the beginning of track season the previous two years. The athlete had a previous history of turf-toe like symptoms in the ipsilateral great toe.
