Why do a few hill strides at the end of your long run? It may seem counterintuitive at first to want to push yourself after doing your long run. Long runs help to increase your aerobic fitness and are essential part to any training program. However they can cause fatigue and breaks in form, leading to inefficiency and ultimately injury. The fix: a few SHORT hill strides. Hill strides tap into a different energy system- the neuromuscular system. Here is where we increase stride power and build leg strength, improving running efficiency and therefore faster times with low risk of injury. The purpose is NOT to go all out. 4 to 6 strides of 10 seconds duration with 60-90 seconds recovery is all you need. It's a great way to shake out the muscle tightness, reset form, and prime your body for the next days workout. Your body remembers that last stride or rep 😉. So next run tack on some hill strides to teach your body how to run faster, become more efficient, and have enough reserve in the tank to get you across that finish line in good form and in good spirits!

Chiropractors focus on your spine, muscle, and nervous system and treat the bones, muscles, soft tissues, and joints that you use every day. The spine, muscle, and nervous system supports your weight, keeps your body stable, protects your organs, and keeps you moving. It also connects directly to other vital systems in your body, which is why medical professionals, researchers, and the wider health community trust the spine care expertise of chiropractors to assess, diagnose, and treat conditions and injuries related to the spine, muscle, and nervous system.
DM #735: I get asked all the time what my favorite books are to learn about movement, and my answer is always the same: Go move. — Your own movement journey will be the best teacher you ever have. Spent the weekend down in San Diego and got to catch some of the @Crossfit West Regionals. LOTS of movement there. Movement that actually changed my life. — My Crossfit Journey began in 2014 and it was the best decision of my life. CrossFit may not be for everyone, but I will continue to sing its praises and recommend it to anyone who inquires. CrossFit is what truly set me down the path of understanding movement, figuring out why things weren’t moving how I wanted them to move, and then searching for solutions to these movements puzzles. — Any movement paradigm can do this for you. Like I said, for me, it was CrossFit. For you, who knows what it will be. But you can be certain you’re not going to find it in a book. Move. Learn. Grow. — Daily Maestroisms dropping whenever the craziness of life allows 🤷🏽♂️. Get yours. Like it? Repost it. Don't understand it?
