On this the first day of Celebration ANZ. I wanted to reflect on my Health journey. This is me on day 1 week 1 top and the bottom is the last day of 16 weeks. The IsaBody journey has been one of the most satisfying and challenging things I have done. I want to send out all my love and support to the finalists this Sunday. I will be in the crowd cheering you all on and visualising myself up there next year. Life is short and the alternative is permanent!! What do you want to achieve this year? I know what I want. Do you want to join me and get what you know is yours for the taking? The road will be bumpy and tears may be shed, but I will be with you 💯% as I know you will be for me. #champosaidyes#entrepreneur#fitness#businessofthe21stcentury#golf#golffitness#mensheath
Hey you! Got some pain in the front of your knee? Check it out! 👀
Knee pain can leave you feeling hopeless 😩 and as if you have to ditch lower body workouts altogether. We are here to tell you that is FALSE!
Here are some tricks you can try to get that leg meat 🍖 pump and fatigue you have been longing for. Try them, tag a friend... they are a lot harder then they look! 😁
Early rehab focuses on decreasing stress on the sensitive areas, most likely by decreasing range of motion. This is where hip hinge or torso exercises come in. Another great way to achieve similar training effects with less stress are iso holds. 💪🏼 You get the pump without putting a joint through ranges of motion. Cool right? 😉
As mentioned before, these modifications do not have to be forever. Once you feel confident with some of these, reintroduce the painful movements with light weight. I like to use it as accessory work or drilling within a workout. Then slowly build back up. You are NOT broken! 👊🏼
Like always, make sure you have been cleared by a doc to perform any of these movements and never be scared to reach out to the nearest professional that can you guide you to a pain free active lifestyle.🏋🏻♂️

🔥 Thoracic Spine Mobility 🔥
We’ve all seen the traditional thoracic mobility drills, the open books 📖 and the rotations on your hands 🖐🏽 and knees
Those exercises are good introductions into feeling your spine move and really get an idea of what moving your spine feels like 🤔
In order to truly isolate and create long term changes, we have to do a couple things
🎯 Attempt to move segmentally (one level at a time)
🎯 Be intentional by limiting compensation from other regions
🎯 Ramp up to maximal contractions (safely and pain-free) for better recruitment of our targeted tissue
🎯 Perform them consistently (daily or close to it) to reinforce the movement and create long term change
These are 2️⃣ @functionalrangeconditioning techniques to improve your thoracic extension and limit how much compensation you get from surrounding areas
Listen to the directions and cues in the video as it’ll give you an idea of what we’re trying to accomplish and be very prepared to sweat 😓
✅ Hold contractions for 10 seconds to start on the second movement. Do 5-7 repetitions of each every damn day

just had the opportunity to work with a young pro golfer who s attempting to improve his capacity to rotate through his shoulders in set up position.
He has been running, deadlifting, squatting and benching in his college program for a few years and while he has gotten stronger, he hasn't seen much transfer to his club speed or accuracy.
In some ways, he has actually gotten worse in that he experiences more back pain and says he feels stiff all the time.
This got me thinking about a quote from @compoundperformance_ that team sport and rotary athletes should build and maintain a base of strength while concentrating a greater bulk of training on movement variability and novelty.
Perhaps in no sport is this more true than golf. Before we can worry about rotating, we must master control of the saggital plane (aka ab and hamstring city)
Once we can maintain fundamental athletic positions in this plane without defaulting in to lordosis, we can then move on to controlling transverse rotation within them.
As Kanye West once said, we must crawl before we ball. Therefore, we are starting simple by continuing to build his program around the big lifts (Bench, deadlift, squat) and sprinkling in exercises which build saggital plane competence.
Here are two he loved from today:
1. Wall reach 1 leg RDL- Place back foot on wall and heel against the wall behind you. Push front foot in to the ground and dig back to find the front side heel and hamstring. Hinge over the front hip while maintaining hamstrings on the front side and pushing the back foot in to the wall to stay centered over stance leg.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 2. Elevated bear push up- Round back and place feet against wall with hands on a box. Drive feet in to the wall to engage the obliques while lowering with an inhale and pushing out of the movement with an accompanying exhale finishing with shoulder blades pushed apart. The goal is maintain a retracted ribcage throughout the movement by keeping abs and maintaining the bear position. Do this right and it absolutely CRUSHES the abs.
We’re stoked to finally have the Nine Iron Grey TRUE Original in our Aus warehouse. Classic grey/blue two tone colourway, zero drop design for comfort and balance, wide toe box and crazy waterproofing all add up to an epic all-season kick. #LiveTRUE#ZeroDrop#BarefootShoes#TRUEOriginal

Golfers cannot be afraid of appropriately increasing weight if you want to improve strength, power, and durability
Blue shirt is before.
Red shirt is after.
Patient came in with right sided low back pain and some radicular symptoms down the right leg during and after golf only.
Assessment of setup #posture found excessive kyphosis which caused the golfer to have shorter takeaway secondary to biomechanical disadvantage of the glenohumeral joint and the t-spine.
Impact and follow through led to increased lumbar side bend and rotation as well because the thoracic spine was not rotating as it should in the swing.
We worked thoracic mobility with manual therapy, stretching, and strengthening. Improved posture and set up and within 2 sessions, he had improved swing speed with decreased pain.
If you’re having back pain in your swing or after your round... come see us @teamrehab_barrington where we can do a full assessment of how the body moves during functional activity and relate it to your golf swing to keep you on the links all season.
Edited the middle pic to hide patients face. (I do have a signed release form so we are good but thank you to those people that let me know)
👉 What’s your favorite golf fitness exercise?🤔
I love anything that stretches and strengthens my glutes and hips. I can always feel such a big difference in my golf swing afterwards💪
Also, my lower body workouts are a lot more effective when I activate and stretch key muscles of my lower body!
This exercise that doubles up as a stretch is one of my favorites! Great if your hips feel restricted during the golf swing!

Here’s my client Drew using tension and pressure with his lower body to create t-spine mobility and separation vs. cranking and torquing with his neck and low back to mimic the motion.

Here’s my client Drew using the @whatsthatstrap to create more torso rotation what’s great about this exercise is that it gives you assistance on your backswing and resistance on your follow through so you really have to decelerate to control and accelerate to get through to your left side.
