.......interesting things about fitness, strength, diet and performance.
Something is missing here. There are far greater compressive forces generated in the foot with a single step vs. his little hand compression. If I am to take him at his word then, every step we take ruins our movement map, at least temporarily. Or, and more likely, he is having the volunteer subject fake a week muscle test to make an exaggerated point about brain map clarity. Joint stability is built on compression. Compression and relaxation happens very quickly and all of the time. Is he really telling me that his little jamming move really ruined his map clarity? I highly doubt this.
I don't know. I will ask one of my Z health contacts
Great question. When you passively open up a joint (having someone else move it or "open" it), there is very little learning involved; so once you stand up or put pressure on it, the joint goes back to the way it was before. When you actively (dynamic joint mobility) move it, YOU are the one doing the moving, so there is more motor learning and the effect stays longer. While I agree with the targets taught in the foot an ankle, I don't personally use toe pulls as an active mobility drill. Rock onMike T Nelson PhD(c)
Cool post! I have learned a lot from your video. Thanks for posting.
Interesting. I just realized that on the two occasions where I strained my neck doing chin-ups, I was looking up.
