I know what you’re thinking..knee sleeves for dead bugs?! That’s like chalking up for a 400m run 😂 I did a bunch of nasty lunges prior to this. The point here is that I, too, do dead bugs. I also did some deadlifts and whenever I do any kind of deadlift or heavy cleans I like working core afterward. It gives my lower back a “decompressed” feeling. I don’t just make my patients do these because I like to torture them. There’s real value in this movement. Keys to remember..1. Timing and coordination...your arms and leg should move at the same rate. You need to “feel” where your limbs are in space even when you can’t see them. This body position sense is HUGE for injury prevention. 2. Make sure that non moving leg stays at 90 degrees at the hip and knee 3. Keep arms straight. Bending your knee makes your brain want to bend the elbows as well. It’s neurological confusion, which again is an excellent injury prevention method. #corework#postworkoutrecovery#lowbackpainrelief... See MoreSee Less
Anyone who knows me has definitely heard me talk about vitamin D more than once. So allow me to nerd out a moment 🤓 I take 5,000IU daily. Vit D is a hormone, not a vitamin, which controls about 5% of protein encoding genetic material in our entire genome. Some of these proteins are very powerful anti viral agents. It is a GENETIC REQUIREMENT for humans to be sufficient! Flu season is in the winter. Since the sun is the best source of Vit D, this makes sense. Southeast Asia also has a flu season, which coincides with their monsoon season (no ☀️).
This study is a meta-analysis (analysis of several studies) of 25 randomized controlled trials across 14 countries. It concluded, with Vit D supplementation, respiratory infection rates were cut 50% in those who were Vit D deficient and 10% in those who had adequate levels.
Deficiency is generally considered to be anything below 20ng/ml, insufficiency at 30ng/ml, and sufficiency at 40ng/ml. This is an easy blood test to determine levels.
DISCLAIMER: I am in no way suggesting that vitamin D supplementation is a treatment for respiratory infections, including influenza and COVID-19. However, evidence is overwhelmingly convincing that sufficiency in Vit D reduces the risk of flu and other respiratory infections.
