Because smashing stuff against the floor is a lot of fun! A great exercise to include in your conditioning circuit => https://youtu.be/AKK7XGEO2sE

"Just like our muscles, if the vestibular system is neglected due to repeatedly restricting movement, it can weaken over time...Unless we participate in a regular dance class or something that offers a great variety of movement, our vestibular system changes as the fluid in the inner ear thickens. As we age, if we don’t stay active, we become more prone to falls."

"Doing a little crawling in your warmup or cool down a few times per week can be really beneficial to help you prime good movement patterns prior to your training, or can help you reset yourself after a tough squatting or pulling session when you will inevitably leave you with a little excess extension. Adding some implements can also make a crawling drill some effective low intensity conditioning work."

For all my rugby folks!! Train hard yes, but train smart.

"Why, if these athletes rely so heavily on the alactic and aerobic systems, is there still overwhelming support of high-intensity, glycolytic-based training methods?"

“Having an EMS unit gives you a chance to learn how electricity interacts with your body and brain, and how different frequencies and intensities elicit different responses. In many ways, using an EMS device is very much like learning to use a camera. You’re much better off spending less money in the beginning and learning the basics through research and trial and error before spending a large amount of money. I’ve always maintained that using electrical stimulation helps us to better understand how to train or rehabilitate an athlete. I’m now more adamant about this point. My recent experiences working with individuals who have chronic pain reinforce this assertion. Learning is best facilitated by doing, observing, reflecting, and communicating on the fly."

"Within secondary education curriculums (think middle to high school biology) we learn about the body and all the various ‘systems’ within it. It’s a reductionist way of looking at a complex topic, but it’s incredibly useful for conveying the ideas to students. However, it’s also fundamentally wrong, and instead of upgrading these ideas later in life we carry them with us. Afterall, our minds crave certainty, and it’s easier to reach closure on a topic than challenge your own beliefs, which is inherently an uncomfortable task.

In reality, all systems in our bodies are interrelated and resources are distributed based on the largest demand."
