Whats the Point?

Create, Maintain, and Sustain,(CMS) Smooth circular mobility in the,
  • toes
  • ankles
  • knees
  • hips
  • shoulders
  • elbows
  • wrists
  • Balanced neuro-muscular recruitment in the feet and hands
  • efficient force production through a push
Why is pushing with shoulders down, elbows in, palms spread, so significant?

Physiologically speaking, having your shoulders down elbows in, creates the greatest amount of surface area between the ball of the humerus bone and the Glenoid Labrum of the Glenohumeral Joint.(The Glenoid Labrum in the socket the ball of the humerus bone goes into. The Glenohumeral Joint is the medical term for the shoulder joint) The Greater the surface area the greater the amount of Neuro-Muscular recruitment. The greater the Neuro-Muscular recruitment the greater production of force.

Key Point to Remember
  • move slow
  • use big toes on way down
  • keep back inline from knees to neck during modified push up
  • elbows in
  • Shoulders down and away from ears
  • push into thumbs
Mobility Insurance
  • Keep it if you got it
  • Get it if you don't
