This video tutorial will walk you through the Corrective Exercise Program to help correct the neuromuscular dysfunctions contributing to Plantar Fasciitis. Understanding that the foot and ankle complex has the greatest contributing factor to the Human Movement System, hence the greatest influence on each of the systems that Clark et al (2011) describe, any arthrokinomatic…...
A very common dysfunction in the HMS occurs due to an individual who possesses dynamic malalignment of the hip and knee causing one condition known as Lower Extremity Movement Impairment Syndrome (Clark and Lucett, 2010). Someone who possesses lower extremity movement impairment syndrome typically has a weak or underactive gluteus maximus and medius muscles that […]
In discussing the pattern of recruitment in regards to muscle fiber type with increasing intensity, a runner could be an example of providing increasing intensities throughout the activity. As an example, as a runner begins his run, and the goal is a marathon, that runner starts at a moderate to slow pace(a jog), in which, […]
Kinesiology is the study of movement, and the science behind the movement of our body against forces of gravity and resistive external forces. Kinematics deals with movement of the body without regards to external forces being applied to them(Neuman pg 4). So looking at exercise design, kinematics does not represent a functional capacity for how […]
Understanding that the foot and ankle complex has the greatest contributing factor to the Human Movement System, any arthrokinomatic dysfunction or muscular imbalance, such as a decrease in control over the medial longitudinal arch, can result in an altered mechanical approach to the HMS leading to a possible cumulative injury cycle(Clark et al, 2011). The […]
Exercise for Older Populations: Our baby boom generation, which is age 65 and older, is approximately doubling between the years of 2000 and 2030, as they enter full maturity. This brings to light at huge classification of people that will require the need to stay active and healthy to help minimize aging health issues that […]
Wasn’t easy, but I committed to getting up at 4am to workout before 5am. Was easier than expected, since I have been telling myself to get up and exercise for at least the last 2 months, without success on even one occasion. I guess I was just ready. Now, the key is to do this […]
I will discuss HIIT in a bit (hey, that rhymes!), but it stands for High Intensity Interval Training. HIIT should never be intitiated if one is under medical supervision or would consider themselves a beginner or novice in regards to an exercise program. There are methods that can be implemented to help a beginner become […]
