📝This video demonstrates a series of progressions for the single leg deadlift.
☠️The SLDL is one of the staple exercises that should be used during all phases of hamstring rehab. It starts with an unweighted single leg reach and eventually progresses to just regular strength training with kettlebells and unrestricted range of motion.
🐂The last progression is to consciously accelerate the back leg and create a strong and fast stretch on the front hamstring. The key here with movement from one variation to the next is gauging how the hammy feels.
🐑There is often a continuum in how an injured hamstring feels. It starts with pain during any real contraction or stretch. It turns into a pulling or tugging sensation but with much less pain. Eventually, this pull is just a stretch. And finally, the hamstring should just feel normal.
🐋Every exercise everyday should be a constant assessment of readiness. Pulling is OK when the next phase begins, but we want there to be improved tolerance on a weekly basis.
🐞The four most common exercises and variations I use in hamstring rehab are bridges, SLDLs, band pulldowns, and sliding lunge variations.

Just let go, shed the shackles, the layers, the beliefs. .
Nature does it all the time, we do it all the time - physically, emotionally, energetically. Becoming conscious of this process as it is happening is something that can bring a lot of comfort, wisdom and growth. .
Holding on creates resistance, tension- not releasing leaves us heavy with the weight of that which no longer resonates with us. .
Mother nature herself is showing us that if we don't rid ourselves and our planet of the ways which no longer serve the growth and healing of life as we know it then she is gonna blast it out for us!! .
It doesn't need to be this way, we can actually decide to be a part of this process. To feel the ebb and flow of the energies around us, to feel the joy, fear and nature of uncertainty and allow it be and allow yourself to dive into it. .
To watch as the leaves fall from the trees and see them be regenerated back into the soil. The trees standing bare, vulnerable,open and with that strengthening themselves against the harshness of the winter months. .
To see that all of life comes and goes but never leaves, it is a moment in time where it is creating an opportunity for change, for understanding the nature of things, an opportunity to understand yourself & the non self. ❤
