What Your Sole 👣 of your Shoes 👟 Says?
🚫 A way to avoid running injuries and to make your shoes last longer is to be aware of your running pattern 🏃🏃🏻♀. Have you ever asked yourself how you run? Well, your shoes have the answer 💡!
From the "wearing" pattern, your shoes often tell us, the therapist a story! I.e. If the 👣 gets more worn out on the INNER side, this could mean the user put more of his/her walking weight on the inner side of his foot, mimicking over-pronation, or the OUTER side, mimicking over-supination.
To get more idea of this quick self assessment🔍, check out the pic above ⬆️ and see what you can do to improve it!
If you have:
1 & 4,
✔️Strengthen your hip adductors. This would help to correct the alignment of your feet and keep them pointing forward during running. .
✔️Allow your heels to touch the ground and aim to strike with mid-foot. Being aware and conciously correcting your foot-strike pattern would allow neuromuscular re-training. .
3 & 5
✔️Realign your running form by leaning forward slightly to allow your feet to strike 💢 the ground under your knees and not ahead of them.
⚠️The most important thing to note is that your shoes show if your postural foundation is unstable, which impacts your entire body. Hence, it is important to have an even foot-strike, a way to maintain healthy lower limb joints.
SO.. If your shoes have the tendency to get worn out very fast, be it the ⬅️ or ➡️ side.. OR you simply just don't have any idea how to assess it.. Get a Physiotherapist to assess it for you today! In Miniphysio Clinic, we could help you with this, text us up at 8698726!

Sometimes you need to take one step back in order to take two steps forward.
This is the case with my deadlifts. No secret I'm a cat back, grip and rip puller so I thought I'd try a block of patient, set up style pulls. Piss ant weight. 150 3x7@6. While I feel weaker I definitely love the full body tightness I can get. Will always still pull grip n rip in comp though 😎
Joey's programming is 100% RPE based with more specifically to comp lifts and more 'bodybuilding' work than im use too. I'm in a 6 week mini cut (currently 89kg) and would like to stay high 80s again. Should be interesting to see how I can progress. Comp plans next year most likely, unless I make insane gains and try December. Building momentum.👍
All I can say is wow! It was a privilege to be a part of such an amazing seminar, held by Professor John Will (Dirty Dozen) on the Gold Coast. In close to 10 years of BJJ and a Degree in Education, I have never ever experienced a coach/teacher/person like John Will.
It's our 4th consecutive GF's in 5 seasons in less than 3yrs of playing this sport. Both learning alot together. I treasure every moment being able to help guide & teach this young man. He's come a long way in such a short amount of time #HardWork#squadallHEART#bloodsweatandtears
