Topic: How pain
or tightness can lead to poor performance.
For this episode we
want to talk about how the body is a complete and connected chain.
We will describe how pain, tightness, dysfunction and any other
problem can throw off the entire system.
Here are a few
questions and areas I would like to cover:
1. What is pain?
What types of pain are there?
1a. Why does my
neck hurt after I sleep in an awkward position or sit for a long
period of time? Basically what is causing my body to send signals
to my brain that says it hurts when I move like this even though I
might not have had any impact or contact with a specific body
2. Does pain in a specific area mean that is where the problem
3. We talk about tightness a lot, but as you've told us, when
a person is under anesthesia they have extraordinary flexibility.
What is tightness and how do we become more flexible?
4. About how many
muscles are in the body? I ask this because with all of these
muscles, lots of them working together, when one or more muscles
aren't doing their job it can cause a variety of problems. We
recently noticed this with Brittany and her brachialis muscle,
would you walk us through what you noticed when Brittany was
performing a bicep curl, what the problem was and how you
5. I mentioned
dysfunction in the intro and what I wanted to ask specifically
about that is; can a muscles move incorrectly? As I understand
muscles are not very intelligent and perform tasks as asked by the
brain but can a muscle make a mistake?
6. If muscles can
make mistakes can we re-wire our system to work correctly
7. With all of these
muscles working in concert is there a way to test the system before
we begin training/working out?
7a. What are some
simple drills that we can do before working out to address specific
areas? (This is the part of the show where we can actually do some
hands on training and drills, maybe a few drills to address some of
the major areas like ankles, hips and spine?)
