This technique will be yet another knowledge bomb not seen anywhere else in the fitness industry. In fact, most will look at it and scratch their heads, but I will simplify it so u all can understand it.

Repost @functionalpatterns SQUATTING OR WALKING, WHICH IS MORE IMPORTANT? A tutorial on how to improve your squat in a way that respects walking will be made if we get atleast 1k ❤likes on this post. Alright, so I saw a myodetard post the other day regarding this exact topic. Apparently we are now going to start looking at squatting as a priority in training, because we were babies once? Yeah, I don't think so. Let's get this straight, before these facetious little weasels try and take away logic from the masses. To train an adult human into a squat as a priority when our bones, joints and muscles are not fully formed is highly questionable. A human does not mechanically prioritize itself in its infancy anyway. THIS IS WHY A BABIES BRAIN TAKES UP 60 PERCENT OF ITS METABOLISM. One might think language and social competence might take priority, but to a functional training person in our current world, it was oriented to a squat. Ofcourse brain development goes to connecting with the body, but the real connections with the body come when you acheive puberty. How is this not common sense? Come on guys, this isn't that hard. How do you get duped into this? You ever ask urself this? From day 1 I asked why an overhead squat assessment was relevant. I never got a clear answer. So doubt in the system followed for me. I really wish that at some point these myodetards would showcase some worthwhile results. Don't you? Wouldn't you like to know that your mechanic knows what he's doing before he works on your car? How do we know that trainers, therapists or structural integration people know what they are doing if they are not showcasing changes on their social media where everyone can see it? Before they educate, maybe they should show you they are worth listening to. That's all I'm saying. If that's offensive to you, you have problems. Btw, Gait is king. If you can't see that. Stop looking at humans move from point a to point b.
Repost @functionalpatternsnina Amazed that people are still not getting it. Btw, please explain...how does the need to knowing my background in this field or my credentials serve any relevancy towards understanding & accepting the validity behind these concepts? . . JUST TAKE A LOOK AROUND AND OBSERVE PEOPLE LOCOMOTE. Really?...does it take a PhD to analyze the mechanisms behind a faulty gait cycle?! . . Yet another repost: Sagittally exclusive exercises have been a main stay in the fitness industry for quite some time now. As beneficial as some systems have made these exercises out to be, they go directly against the evolutionary traits our structure is built upon. The muscles of the body are primarily oriented to create synergistic movement in the horizontal plane. This is made clear by fiber orientation, origin and insertion points and by observing the most impressive human movers in reactive scenarios. Of the muscles proximal to the spine, the largest muscles, (the ones most capable of load bearing), are all have horizontally oriented fibers for transverse rotation of the spine. The only muscles oriented vertically close to the spine are extremely small and unable to bear much load. When hundreds of pounds are placed on top of the spine, the only structures left to compensate are the discs and vertebrae, which become compressed leading to severely limited gait and breathing function, likely accompanied by some sort of pain. Along with the damage to the spine, it is also important to take in to account all of the non-vertically oriented fascial chains. If fascia that is meant to be stimulated through a horizontal stretch, but instead is crunched and crimped vertically by heavy barbell loads, it will not be able to be utilized in that horizontal fashion any longer, leading to dysfunction all over the body through the connections of myofascial networks. Lets not forget the direct trauma from the barbell balancing on your cervical spine either. Make no mistake that if your intention is to improve your mechanics on this earth, its time to break the habit of sagittal plane training, and experience the benefits of 3 dimensional movement. #functionalpatterns #tens
A more functional 3 dimensional version of a staple exercise in the fitness world. Traditional training maintains the same exercises executed in almost always the same way, requiring more volume of work and more diminishing returns over time. Conditioning your body to have competence within more contexts (exactly what FP does) enables you to do diverse variations of classic exercises that stimulates muscle fibers in a way that have very little, if any, risk and/or consequences. How is this not appealing to more people? Repost @functionalpatterns Mixing some @themyohacker FP work with @drjackkruse. Lethal combo. Grateful to have the knowledge I do. I haven't had real pain in my body for the last decade, after having crippling pain, with this new mitohacking, I feel like I'm on roids lol.

Nina breaking down some key elements of FP methodology. Repost @functionalpatternsnina Holy #MyoFascialForceTransmission 😲 Humans... did you know we are supposed to also have the capability to counter rotate our upper and lower haves of our body? Unfortunately this lost capacity in most humans to have these "counter - tensions" in the body is due to the inability to intrinsically fight gravity coupled with the predominant vertical and lateral compressions inflicted by traditional methods of "strength-training" in longitudinal force vectors that don't transfer into the horizontal force vectors we as bi-pedal organisms rely on in our locomotive pattern. Fortunately at Functional Patterns the #1 priority is to bring back these natural tensions by improving the #tensegrity or #biotensegrity of your body so that you can move in a way that respects your biology, thereby allowing your gait cycle to be #biorhythmic versus destructive to your joints that creates a stress response every time your foot strikes the ground. . . . Our bodies are meant to "sling" like this cat right here. If your Myofascial networks do not have a "slinging" effect like such, most likely you are living in chronic pain or experience recurring injuries... Just look at the before and after #gaitcycle videos before this post or in the # functionalpatternsresults hashtag library and you'll see exactly what I'm referencing in terms of this #slinging effect. #FUNCTIONALPATTERNS #trainforyourbiology #HumanBiomechanics #ContralateralReciprocation
Repost @functionalpatterns ⚡⚡⚡⚡ Unwinding the serratus, pec minors, and subscaps, connecting them to the rotational slings.

Left: 2015 "training smart" with "strict form" and "full range of motion" doing calisthenics and traditional strength training. Using preworkout every day, never out in the sun, stressing myself out over consuming enough calories every day, regularly injurying myself and in pain most of the time. BUT, everyone I knew at my gym was always giving me props for looking shredded! Neither myself or anyone in my circle at the time were aware that the folds in my lower back were not extra gains, but actually serious compression. You can also tell where my mindset was at with the pose I decided to take for the photo in a gym locker room. Vanity much? What's funny is my former self looks much less "aesthetic" and healthy than my current self. Right: 2017 Functional Patterns for 1 year. Decompressed. Able to breathe expansively without restrictions. Much less anxiety and stress. Mindset geared towards understanding the human body and it's mechanisms. Still interested in judging myself and others, but relative to their movement and how it may affect their behaviour. A more balanced human who wishes to spread the relevance that is FP and what it can do for a willing participant. Giving up the illusion of health and humbling myself through FP has given me a better body and life.
Functional Patterns - The Epitome of Human Optimization Repost @functionalpatternsspain #functionalpatterns #rehab #functionalpatternsspain . When María @meripop7 came to FP in her medical history were: 10 Dislocations in right shoulder (surgery) .3 Dislocations in left shoulder. Dislocation of right wrist and break of radius head ( surgery: metal plate with 6 screws on elbow). Break of maleolo on ankle sectioning posterior tendom ( surgery: 2 screws posterioursly taken out due to pain). Doctors had diagnosed scoliosis and hiperlaxis in joints .. At that moment she was 12 kg overweight and had long term several sick leaves due to neck and back pain that fought with painkillers, anti-inflamatories , therapists without lasting results. She had very low mobility and internitent pain.
This is what it's all about! With a gait cycle improvement like this, it may lead you to believe that continuation down the Functional Patterns path will lead @fpbrasil to moving efficiently and pain free well into old age. That should be what the goal is when it comes to the ideas we associate with words like "health" and "fitness" right? Is the paradigm you're following now going to provide you with the same outcome FP training can? Repost @functionalpatterns Some more results from @fpbrasil 🏆! It's one thing to try and plagiarize😺 FP info showcasing some basic results from my 10 week course and book, it's another to take the deep steps to make changes like these happen. Static posture is good👍, high performance posture in relevant movement are is king👑. We are upping our game everyday. We embody science in every way we can. If you guys want some info on how to run faster and pain free, drop me 2k❤ likes and 100 comments on this post. We fell short on the last one by a bit, but I bet we can make it happen. I'll commit to showcasing techniques that work (unlike the myodetard nonsense) as long as we can get some traction on FP getting its deserved recognition. Help me out and I will reciprocate only the best. Thank you all for the support!
When it comes to health/fitness/self-optimization, we've gotta do what works. What "works" should be defined as completing a biologically required task as efficiently as possible that will better adapt a person to their reality without sacrificing another aspect of their health, and accounting for as many variables as we can. Sounds tough but life ain't easy, and optimizing life is even less easy. Repost @functionalpatterns ⚡⚡ To all the people who follow my personal facebook, here is something to show you where I am. I don't just talk about this philosophy by @drjackkruse, I live by it. Notice I cite my sources too? As bad as jack slagged on FP, I will still expose his work to the masses. Why? Because it's just that important. Is it everything we need to stay healthy? No. I feel confident in saying that considering I think a good quality of life requires movement dexterity that respects a 400 million year old blueprint. Ofcourse, to someone who has never known what it is to correct a dysfunction on a human body in ways that relate to specific stressors, that 400 million year process is inconsequential. After testing Jack's work (notice I said testing it, and not just thinking about it), it has proven to be legit. FP is a concoction of concepts, most who have nothing to do with physical exercise. Ofcourse, everyone just sees what they see on the surface and assume they know what we are about. Like I said. Some of us talk about humility and challenging personal indoctrination, people like me live it. I have been on this planet a fairly short time, but I know the physiological consequences of validation whores. I won't say names here, but we'll assume we know who I'm talking about here. End of the day, what counts is what works. You can believe you know the full truth of something all u want, but perception is still limited to sensors. Let's all live by our words so we don't look like dumbshit later, shall we?
Rigged up two pulley arms to make lateral travel smuuuv with the presses. @27 years old I've never felt this good in my life. Even as a healthy teenager playing sports, I had so much hypermobility in my left scap, in turn inhibiting my ability to recruit tension in my left pec and leaving me open to regular deep rhomboid strains. Even after all the "mindful" training I did prior to FP, when I switched to FP fulltime and allowed my "gains" to fade, I was left with the bare bones of a very imbalanced structure. The problem and imbalances were still there. If your training program isn't constantly addressing dysfunction, then you're just masturbating into the wind. Just my opinion based on my life experience. #functionalpatterns #fpvancouver #fpnorthvancouver #biomechanics #posture #dynamic #gait #lateral #kettlebell #dumbbell #cybex #fitness #vancity #vanfitfam #vancouver #personaltraining #rehab #prehab #martialarts #mma #boxing

Repost @functionalpatterns Chiropractic in a nutshell. To all people involved in the movement and rehab field, stop comparing your crap to our techniques. I leave a demographic alone online then they get the balls to tell me how to run my craft, while they display zero results. If your chiro works that great, show me some results of people looking proficient with their movement with your 10 minutes of pops. Not completely bagging on Chiro, as it is good in certain spots, but we aren't even the same league regarding the enhancement of humans. Sit down. Know your place. Collect a welfare check from the government or an insurance company, while the rest of us at FP earn our money. Quit talking about biomechanics, it's not your field of study. #functionalpatterns #functionaltraining #POSTURE #prehab #rehab #athlete #biomechanics #flexibility #strengthtraining #flexible #abdominals #scoliosis #kyphosis #lordosis #gains #anatomytrains #yogi #yoga #stretch #chiropractors #gosomewhereelse
If you're someone in FP I'm sure you can clean this one up. After chambering today, this move is waking up slack in my left deep back arm line and left lateral line. The kind of defiencies that have been partially responsible for my hypermobility and scoliotic-behaving tspine. Thankfully @functionalpatterns has given me the tools to fix myself. Every single day people are raving about what FP is doing for them.. What more do you need?
