We... Are... Taking... Things... Sloooooooooow... This is a cool washing machine I created with @teenie29 almost a year ago called spintronics!! It's not that complicated, but it got cool elements that make it a lot of fun and switch side automatically. It's got base toes in reverse bird tic tocs and base toes out free reverse bird tic tocs. I also love the reach across before the roll through straddle bat to vache. I showed it to @holly_go_lightly_ and she loves it too and says it makes her feel like she's floating in the air! Here we recorded one iteration of it and slowed it to half speed. It is kinda mesmerizing! Maybe should do more slow motion stuff!
Ladies and gentlemen, the best trained ball in town! 🎪🎟
But for real, these are great drills to build strength for a #presshandstand and core/upper body strength in general. If you’re not ready to disconnect from the ball, start by holding a plank with your shins on the ball. From there, lift through your core and open your shoulders to allow your hips to stack. See what happens from there! 💪🤸🏼♀️ the last drill is a great shoulder opener and a good way to work on your #hollowbackhandstand
Tag someone who you think might enjoy these drills!
Tag me when you try it, so I can see your progress!
Thanks @movementsanctuary for creating such a great training space, and for putting art on your walls that makes me feel like a #badass doing handstands in front of.

❌AVOIDING GROIN STRAINS ❌⠀
Injuries seem to come in waves in my clinic, and right now I’m seeing a LOT of the dreaded GROIN STRAIN! These most commonly occur because we tend to do a lot of STRETCHING of our adductor muscles (inner thighs), but not enough STRENGTHENING!!⠀⠀
Here’s one of my favorite adductor strengthening exercises that not only gives your adductors a serious boost, but also is a great core/oblique/shoulder exercise…#multitasking, anyone?!⠀⠀
1️⃣In a side plank, place your top leg on en elevated surface (panel mat, couch, chair). Bottom leg must stay off the floor- for bonus points, place it in a passe, bent knee, foot on opposite shin/knee.⠀⠀
2️⃣lift hips by pressing your top leg into the sofa.⠀⠀
3️⃣OPTION 1: Isometric holds- hold here for 10-15 seconds. ⠀⠀
4️⃣OPTION 2: in a slow and controlled movement, keeping your body in a STRAIGHT line (like you’re stuck between 2 panes of glass), lower your hip until you touch the floor (or get as close as you can!). Slowly return to starting position. NO PIKIKG!⠀⠀
5️⃣ OPTION 3: From the starting position, stick your booty back and purposefully allow your hips to pike. Aim the back of the bottom hip towards the floor, tap, and return to start. This biases the medial hamstrings and adductor Magnus slightly more than the other adductors, due to the piked position.⠀⠀
💁🏻 Make it harder: same exercise, from your hands instead of elbows ⠀⠀
🙅🏻 Make it easier: same exercise, with your whole lower leg on the couch ⠀⠀
Make sure you’re good and WARM before you try this exercise- it is NOT easy, but it’s a great addition to your training program- this exercise is a SERIOUS multitasker, not only does it strengthen your adductors for performing arts, but it also is great for conditioning, active flexibility, *and* injury prevention! ⠀⠀
Try it out, tag a friend, and let me know what you think!⠀
Yoga and acro yoga #muscles - I kind of know I have gained some muscles over the past few years practicing yoga and acro yoga. But I was sincerely shocked by this picture myself! I have no idea they look so big when I flex them!
Until next time, Jongtae. It’s been real ✌🏼 #goodvibes
So I got to go to O'ahu this week and it was absolutely amazing! Hawai'i is so beautiful. This pass is a little rough bc I didn't really give it a practice run first and I didn't want to bother the stranger I asked to film for me with a bunch of retakes, lol. But anyway I had a great vacation and got to tumble on a beach in Hawai'i! #Acro#Tumbling#Kailuabeach#Hawaii
Healthy knees? Healthy hips? Do they have full range of motion? Are they bullet proof? Can they be loaded in many ways without pain and or fear of breaking them? 🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄
Your femur should have adequate internal and external rotation to allow you into and out of different positions. A femur that can move well will be a healthy hip. Many people neglect their internal and external rotation and then wonder why they have trouble with squats, locomotion, throwing, golfing, fighting, playing, rock climbing. The 90/90 position is a good place to start.
(Second video) Sit in your butt and with a bent leg internally rotate your knee till it touches the floor. Put your other foot on the floor by your internally rotated knee and externally rotate your other leg till the knee is on the floor. How does it feel? Keeping the feet in place, switch the knees to the other side. How does that feel? Are they even? Do they both touch the floor? Is one side more tight than the other? 🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄
(Third video) You can try some other variations of moving into and outj of the 90/90. Move smoothly and with control. Don’t hurt your self. Take it slowly and build over time. Remember, it’s all about dose. 🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄
