Can you move? Like, really move?

It’s not always about how flexible you are or far you can go. Sometimes it’s about taking yourself there. Mobility!

I need work still, but I’m working on it.

@stickmobility Joint mobility drill without letting any other parts of the body move or compensate. Just getting femoral rotation. Tougher than it looks. Even harder when it’s loaded. Try it!

About Mercedes:

“I am here to guide you in exploring new movement patterns, addressing the fascia, soft tissue weakness/ tightness, and joint health and mobility. I know first-hand how infuriating the standard medical model can be when you are looking for help and need some one on one attention for your concerns. I will take time to listen to you and your body, and we will work as a team to find solutions on and off the table. Education is my passion and I love to use visuals and movement to guide and empower my clients to find new awareness in their body through fascial stretch, breath and healthy movement patterns.”

Cleared up 10 years in 30 minutes!

Garrett is a multiple black belt athlete and owner of @made_louisville . Had a left shoulder injury from rolling 10 years ago.

He runs an amazing business that offers multiple practices for MMA and strength. Definitely worth checking out if you haven’t!

Those flexors can get VERY tense after years of grappling.

Looking forward to seeing if we can give these results a chance to hold and get stronger.

Existing client came in today feeling “rotated” and was absolutely correct! He recently tweaked his golf swing to add more weight in his lead foot throughout his golf swing to help get his hips through. Well, it worked...a little too well.

Constant pain in his lower lumbar region which has a lot to do with little to no thoracic rotation. Wasn’t always that way, but I believe started when the pain surfaced.

More hips and follow through is a good thing, but there was a sacrifice in his takeaway. That is a great cocktail for inconsistency(basically my golf swing😆)

Gave some oppositional rotation exercises that are very challenging due to his body relying on the lumbar to rotate instead of the thoracic.

Recommended @boditrakgolf to check his weight dispersion throughout his swing because I think he’s doing a little too much now.

This one will take a little bit of work to get back to zero pain because it took a little bit of work to get him in a bind.

Got him straightened out for now.

Sometimes it’s not just knee pain!!!

Yesterday I had a former dancer that now enjoys running. She has had left knee discomfort leading to pain since the #KDM in April.

What does that lead to? No running.
Running was a great stress relief and exercise option for her.

Prior to our session I noticed pronation in the right foot so I decided to document some before and after pictures.

Did some unwinding of the fascia throughout the body, especially the right calf.

Made a decent correction in an hour!!!

Checked in with her today...no left knee pain. Imagine that. She has some meticulous strength exercises to do for her arch and will need to continue to work on balance.

Gotta give my man @gradyshiflet a big Alabama shout out!! Grady is doing his thing down there💪🏃‍♂️

Can’t say enough about how much I enjoyed working with you these last 4+ years. Great student, athlete and mature young adult.

Grady recently got himself some hardware at the #secchampionship -2nd in the mens Distance Medley Relay. Ran the 800 leg. Currently ranked 7th nationally and going to the NCAA indoor championships (for the DMR) on March 12
- 2nd in the 800 prelims with a 1:50.2
- Bronze medal in finals with the fastest last lap out of the entire field, which was eerily similar to his 400 leg that he ran his junior year of high school to take state in the 4x400 event.

Seems like yesterday while you were at St.X all you wanted was a sub 4:20 mile, now look at you! Keep setting those goals, because you keep knocking them down💪
Best of luck on March 12th!!!

Let’s talk #gripstrength and how it correlates to #shouldermobility and the muscles involved in the front and back arm lines.

This has been popping up a lot in my office lately. Whether it’s impingement, epicondylitis, neck tension or even a shortened pec, grip strength can play a role.

I recently became a @stickmobility coach in October and by November my left elbow, biceps tendinitis and pec issues have virtually dissipated. I was TERRIBLY weak when my grip was challenged on my left side!!! Blew my mind how much strength I had lost without even knowing. Challenging your grip with control consistently also creates a healthy traction in the shoulder region(one of our most mobile joints).

Sometimes it’s mobility, sometimes it’s stability. Schedule online with me to figure out where your muscular imbalances are hiding in your tissues!

🚨BORING INFORMATIVE VIDEO POST🚨

What I do and what to expect during a session.

Does Fascial Stretch Therapy help with ______?

The answer most of the times is, YES!

A session with me is very hard to explain sometimes. This is just a quick overview of what to expect when you schedule.

My clients always have trouble describing to others what their time with me is like. Hopefully this video makes things a bit easier to get the point across.

Feel free to send this to anyone that is interested and also feel free to ask away with any questions you may have in the comments 👇

01/06/2021

Like most of us, the coronavirus put a spin on the routine I normally follow. I never felt comfortable with the idea of working out at public gyms when they opened back up again. Terrified to get the virus, terrified to have lost time with clients.

Mike Castellano (trainer and one of the owners of @profitnesswellness) came in to see if I could help with his shoulder issues. I felt that I could, but things would take time. Science proves it takes 12 weeks for muscles to change. Him having a lot of time on his shoulder issue AND adding strength to the discomfort and dysfunction, I was thinking it may take twice that. We both decided to help each other out. He has a private facility that is very clean, well kept and he has a better idea of what my body needs for strength than I do.

Starting in early November, Mike recorded all of my measurements and numbers so we could monitor progress. I didn’t have a goal and still don’t. Just wanted to change up my lifestyle and keep it that way. I started actually following a diet and focused on what was going in to my body. We try to train 3 times per week, but we are both very busy and do what we can. Even managed to stay active during the holidays.

What I love about working with Mike is how we slowly progress. We are using half of what I would probably be using on my own, but it’s all about control this time. Are the correct muscles firing? Such a shift of how I normally would go about my workouts. So much better on my joints as well!

Our first 3 weeks were “getting the soreness out.” 2 times a week, small percentage of what I am capable of, turning the muscles back on. On my time, I have been adding stick mobility in up to 5 times per week to keep my muscles from going back to their old short bad habit ways. I get cardio in a couple times a week as well(need more of that for the next 4 weeks).

It took me 6 weeks to kick the cravings. So, after 8 weeks I feel like I’m just now getting things started in the right direction. I’m sharing this to let anyone know that things take time, just keep trusting the process. Next 4 weeks should look A LOT different 💪

Last session of the night and the year just left and I feel so blessed and happy to be able to do what I love. Earlier this year was a tough spot for most of us, and still is for a lot of folks.

That gap in time was the first time I had not had the liberty of working with people at such a personal level that it rocked my world mentally. Financially, of course. The mindset of not knowing how long things would last was a very tough state to be in for me. I didn’t handle it as well as I thought I would have, but it was a learning experience. I feel very fortunate I didn’t suffer a fraction of what others have gone through.

I don’t have a business without someone to work on.

I can’t thank all of you that will see this enough for trusting me with whatever issues we cover during our sessions. I get to know people on such a unique level it’s almost hard to explain. I have had so many people supporting my business by buying gift cards for loved ones and making plans in the future to continue to work with me. Fills me with an energy I’ve never had when I sit and think on it.

This picture is my mood. Just all the way to the core, happy🙂

I don’t plan on changing a thing in 2021

Had a blast working with @thegolfacademypr today!

Great group of student athletes! They held their own pretty well today and had some great questions.

@stickmobility does a great job of creating body awareness during movement. Very crucial for someone looking to improve their golf swing and prevent future injuries.
