Learn how to build the strength and skill so that YOU TOO can lift and press, not just one, but the weight of TWO airplane doors over your head, FOR REPS, in the case of an emergency at my @strongfirst #kettlebell course, NEXT SUNDAY, on October 29, 2017 @barbell_republic here in Las Vegas, Nevada. (Double 22kg (~97lbs) Kettlebell Press for two reps at 115lbs bodyweight shown here 👆🏼💪🏼👊🏼).
Because what do we train for??? LIFE. THIS is why we lift.

Quando falo que a reabilitação da maioria das grandes articulações devem começar pelo o CORE. Fisioterapia baseada em ciência! 👊👊

🔥Revisão Sistemática foi conduzida com o propósito de avaliar o papel da estabilidade do CORE no desenvolvimento de lesões nos membros inferiores. A hipótese dos autores era que o déficit de estabilidade aumentaria o risco de lesão em atletas.
✔9 estudos longitudinais foram inseridos na revisão. A qualidade dos estudos variou entre moderada (7) e alta (2). O nível de evidência dos estudos foi classificado como B.
✔Os autores verificaram que a força, propriocepção e controle neuromuscular do CORE aparecem como fatores de risco de lesão dos membros inferiores em atletas. No entanto, a resistência muscular do core apresentou resultados conflitantes.
✔Os autores sugerem que o déficit de estabilidade do core pode comprometer o alinhamento dinâmico dos membros inferiores aumentando assim o risco de lesão neste segmento. Assim, recomendam o screening desta variável no contexto da prevenção de lesões!

The penultimate slide of my finally-complete presentation 🙌 (true to form, I had to delete it all a few times before I got where I needed to go). This slide sums up what I wish I’d considered when I started training folks - female AND male - 12 years ago.
It completes “A Female-Specific Approach to Kettlebell Training”, hopefully instilling a message of educated hope: the acknowledgment of the very real and significant concerns/“dysfunctions” that have been completely dismissed from fitness conversations/programming AND the belief in our resilience (physical&psychological).
More than just altering the exercise, we need to change the way we approach training in the first place. “Practice” over “exercise”: make mastery of symptom-free movement more of a priority than sweating your ass off. This is what will serve you in AND out of the gym (AND will earn you the ability to push hard). Strategy first, then movement, then load/intensity. And that strategy? It isn’t fixed in place - it meets the demand. It also evolves, as skill and symptoms improve. It encompasses “optimal” and “suboptimal” and, combined with a well-executed plan/program of progression, makes #kettlebellswings and #turkishgetups and picking up dogs and kids and appliances accessible.
This slide is a response to the fear-mongering that plagues #pelvicorganprolapse info. I personally believe that that (well-intentioned and definitely not without truth) actually stalls more recovery than it aids. I have found the same to be true for more conditions than just #POP . Women contact me daily, afraid to move. Their quality of life is so stunted by what they’ve read, and what they’ve read hasn’t improved their situation, the majority of the time.
I often feel as if I’m divided between two passions: hardstyle kettlebell training and advocacy for women’s health. The perceived division is just because these two worlds haven’t collided fully, yet. I’m hoping to help change that, along with all the professionals who have been paving the way for an approach that truly addresses female athleticism.
I hope to have the opportunity to strategize & swing with you at @womenshealthandfitnesssummit in a few days!
Found one more, it was the first match of the day. Scissor sweep to triangle, couldn’t finish the triangle, hence the transition to the arm bar. The more I watch these videos the more I appreciate my coach. He did a hell of a job coaching me through the matches yesterday. 🙌🏽
☄Ridge has worked with me from day one where I was barely touching my toes, to the present where I'm deadlifting half my bodyweight. His patience, sense of humor, passion for kettlebells, and interest in alternative healing have been integral to my rehabilitation. I am forever grateful to Ridge and I would recommend him to anyone, but especially those who need a little extra help trusting their bodies again ☄
Warm words from our friend Kristen A. about how @ridgecarpenter has helped her recover from an ankle injury and establish strength after being diagnosed with disk degeneration in her lumbar spine.
