BAR MUSCLE-UP PROGRESSION
Love me some progressions - in fact I’m an advocate of varying modalities frequently (conjugate approach to progressions 🤔?)
Here is an athlete afflicted with chronic bursitis in one shoulder [we’ll address that in another video]. As a result @zaidalasady been “stuck” practicing Ring-Rows and Strict Pull-Ups [incredible strength & integrity builders!]. ————————
Today’s workout called for Muscle-Ups. Zaid was able to demonstrate an acceptable amount of shoulder integrity during dynamic movement so we went ahead and introduced a more dynamic version of Jumping Chest-To-Bar Pull-Ups focused on “Kip Mechanics.”
1️⃣ Shoulder’s stay “active,” pulled down away from ears.
2️⃣ Body position arches as chest descends through straight arms.
3️⃣ Arms (pull) + Legs (push) propel chest to bar, body position extends to a hollow plank.
There are a few more elements and we’ve got some things to clean up, but Zaid’s got a new technical progression to practice with lots of carry-over! #winning

You might not realize it, but what happens in your digestive tract plays a huge role in how well you’re able to fight off germs 😷
🤒And what you eat — even, at times, whether you eat — can have a direct impact on how quickly you recover from a cold or flu and whether you catch the bug in the first place.⠀
👆🏽Here are some tips for boosting your immunity and feeling better fast.

Why do some people with degenerative changes hurt, while others don’t?🤷🏻♂️
I hope this can make sense of things. Let's consider degenerative changes like grey hair and wrinkles on the inside. They are a normal part of ageing! A better term is probably age-related tissue changes as they are commonly found on imaging among asymptomatic individuals. This graphic is a great example of that.
So how do we explain why some people with degenerative tissue changes hurt, and others don’t?
Louis Gifford wrote about this in his book Aches and pains:
"Feeling low, coping poorly or being under stress, may be background mental states that also prime the central hypersensitivity circuitry. Hence spontaneous onset of physical symptoms due to the unmasking of normally muted nociceptive activity or circuitry. Further, psychological factors may be important in triggering pain states or making them more likely. They are also likely to amplify pain above ‘usual’ levels should the individual sustain some form of strain or injury. That there may not have been an obvious physical incident can be irrelevant if we consider that as most of us age we harbour more and more physical ‘abnormalities and imperfections’ that are silently signalling their status to the CNS. I think this is one of the major reasons why degenerative changes can be present for a great many years without any symptom manifestation."
Many factors modulate pain. Do we need to change the structure to get out of pain? No! 👏🏻
Let's close with more of Gifford’s words:
"Weak and deconditioned tissues in a vulnerable organism are likely to keep the sensitivity dimmer switch on a high setting, get them fitter and the switch can turn it all down. Big point here, it’s not necessarily the tissues getting fitter that do the trick – it’s the context in which the tissues get fitter that is the key. How the individual patient interprets it all can massively help or massively mess it all up!"
Always remember that social media shares the highlighted reels. We only see about 10% of the whole picture. It misrepresents real life, though, which is why so many of us look for the quick fix, the magic pill, and extreme measures. ——————————————————
While I love transformation stories, successes, and big wins, I wish the process itself was highlighted a lot more. I wish the struggles, mistakes, failures, and obstacles were just as celebrated and appreciated as the trophies, PR’s, and successes. Because the truth is, anything worth doing in our lives requires a ton of hard work and sacrifice! Yet, because we only see the glitz and glam on social media, we think that we are the only ones struggling, while everyone else has it easy. WRONG!
We all struggle. We all fight battles each day that the rest of us know nothing about. We need to be more human, and realize that we are all in this together! 💪
Embrace the process!!!

Love me a good warm-up game (the sillier the better). Does it:
✅ increase heart rate?
✅ increase blood flow?
✅ increase body temperature?
✅ is it FUN?

Lay awake at night? Trouble falling asleep? Does a “good night’s rest” remain elusive?
Why not a cheap & effective method.. that doesn’t leave you drowsy in the morning? 📝 Research suggests CONTRAST SHOWERS may help regulate circadian rhythm, improve hot/cold tolerance and induce other health benefits.
🔬 Hydrotherapy including contrast showers have been shown to improve sleep duration & quality, reduce muscle soreness, and have modest regulating effects on immunity, heart health & longevity, hormones, and weight-management.
WHAT TO DO
✅ With body fully immersed (head & shoulders!) in shower - alternate between 10 seconds of HOT, 20 seconds of COLD water for a total of 10 CYCLES. Finish on 1-2 minutes of COLD before exiting & drying off.
🔑 Head and Shoulders Immersed. Use as HOT/COLD Temperature you can handle!*Begin with Temperatures you are comfortable with.
