Holiday Special #1
Pain and Why it Matters
December 24, 2021
Kathryn and Chris talk about how their teaching and ideas about movement have changed since diving deep into pain science. They explore the range of feelings that might come up during strength building and why it’s useful to acknowledge the spectrum of sensations. If pain isn’t an accurate indication of the health of our tissues, then what is contributing to pain and what might it be telling us?
Holiday Special #2: Mobility, How Much and When
December 27, 2021
People often ask why we focus so much on strength but not as much on mobility. From our perspective, everything we teach is mobility. We have been taught that mobility training should look a certain way but in reality, we don’t have a shared and agreed-upon definition of mobility. Certain systems have become popular, but in some cases is more mobility just more mobility?
Holiday Special #3: Strength is a Feeling, Not a Look
January 1, 2022
Today Chris and Kathryn are talking about why it’s not useful to base your strength-building progress on looks (unless you are a body builder). Strength can be felt from the inside, and there are other metrics to measure your progress. Most of us have been taught to measure our success based on how we look on the outside, and we believe this approach sets us up to eventually fail. You don’t have to be changing how you look to be doing it right.
Holiday Special #4: More movement isn’t always better
January 5, 2022
We are bombarded with messages about the dangers of too much sitting, not moving enough, chairs and couches in our living rooms, etc… But is more movement always better? On the journey to building strength, movement is vital, but less is sometimes more. Many active people have internalized messages that more movement is always better but as Chris and Kathryn have experienced this can be a stepping stone to problematic exercise behaviors, being under recovered, and increased stress when it comes to lifestyle.
