"To anyone who has ever told someone with a dream, they can't... Do what you can't" @caseyneistat //
I tend to hide behind helping others invest in, pursue, and live out their dreams rather than fully chase my own. Six months ago a good friend of mine sent me a Casey Neistat video just as I was waffling whether or not I was truly ready to embark on a journey to explore my own dreams. I almost backed out. I almost gave in to clocking in and out on someone else's dream. But that video hit me at just the right time as my insecurities and fear were hitting a peak. Just as I was telling myself I was crazy and shouldn't even try. His words sat with me and were the encouragement I needed in that exact moment to be okay with chasing my crazy, embracing the dreams that I kept pushing to the bottom of a "bucket list", trusting and investing in myself. I had absolutely no idea how I would last "unemployed" for more than a month. Five months later, I'm still hustling, finding more $$ than I need to get by, and this past month I brought in more than I have ever made in a months time. I am so grateful for every human that has shared advice, support, and guidance during the beginning stages of this incredible adventure! 🙏🙏🙏

It's not something we think about often. We wake up, start our day, go to work, come home and do it all over again. I mean, honestly, we exclude ourselves from the possibilities of something bad happening to us. But WHAT IF? 🤔
Jane just dropped the kids off at school and is heading to work. She's taking the tradition route to avoid traffic and rolls up to the next stop. She picks up her coffee to take a sip while passing through the intersection and the next thing she knows shes been hit by someone who wasn't paying attention because they were running late. Now, she's out of work for several months and the bills are stacking.

WHAT IS OPTIMAL MOVEMENT?
We should all be able to bring our arm overhead, to squat below parallel and to deadlift with a flat back, however HOW we accomplish that will change based on multiple factors. Some of them are modifiable like muscle flexibility, capsular tightness around joints and lack of stability. Some of them are not, like your anatomy. Which is why I don’t believe there is such thing as “textbook form” for any particular movement, only structural requirements that must be taken into consideration.
Anatomy differences can explain why some people can squat deeper than others, why some point their toes out, why some squat wide and some squat narrow and why some need a wide grip for overhead movements. These anatomical differences will dictate form and comfort of the athlete.
Found some pretty cool photos to exemplify this concept:
1.Scapula: here we can see how different the inclination angle of the glenoid fossa can be, as well as its depth. Do you think these two people will look and move the same?
2.Humerus: take a look at the version of one vs. the other. The amount of internal and external rotation of these two people will be different, so should we try to force motion upon one or the other?
3.Innominate: check out how differently positioned the acetabulum is. The one on the left points more to the front, while the one on the right is oriented more laterally. I’m willing to bet the first person would be more comfortable with a close stance squat and a conventional deadlift and the one on the left will be more comfortable with a wide stance and a sumo pull.
Trying to force a movement pattern upon someone who’s anatomy isn’t conductive for can be disastrous. If the athlete is uncomfortable in their stance despite how much mobility work they do, it’s important to look at their anatomy and let the stance and depth be dictated by comfort and not the other way around. The key point here is to rule out mobility deficits FIRST and making sure the athlete is taught HOW to perform the movement.
