Durability + Suspension = Total Human Optimization.
The majority of us find ourselves in the same ol’ postures throughout the day. Sitting at a desk. Working on the lap top. Netflix and Chillin’. Sitting thru traffic and many more activities that leave our spine being the recipient of bad posture habits. Before we try to combat our postural compensations through movement, we must bring awareness towards the lack of movement and intent to the specific tissues that will help combat this negative stress. What we need is more sensory information back into our system that will allow for better movement patterns to be expressed.
One of the most simple yet effective techniques we can implement is the use of suspension rings. For some, standing mobility is tough to utilize towards spinal movements as the requirement of some type of feedback mechanism is necessary for people to grab a better understanding of what is working and not working throughout their bodies (sensory feedback). Suspension rings are an amazing tool that allow for coaches to regress and progress clients through different spinal articulation patterns, that allow for the whole central nervous system to be stimulated, therefore allowing for better movement expression from joints and muscles in the periphery. •••
The following video shows a demonstration of a Suspension Ring Spinal Wave! Using the principles of Durability along with the Suspension Ring tool, we prioritize longevity of our nervous system thru increased tissue elasticity and hydration! And with this intention towards increasing longevity, we ultimately contribute towards increased performances on and off the field! •••

Hi Mum, I'm fine
At least I try my best. By the end of September, I was frustrated how impossible it seemed to develop a daily routine only having four lectures per week. I slept in, stayed up late, ate irregularly and not enough. As a person who loves a daily routine to have structure in the madness that is life, I was devastated. But that changed.
I started meditating again - in the beginning this meant laying down near a lake or on the rug in my room and falling asleep a few minutes into the meditation. But afterwards I felt great nevertheless.
Traveling through Ontario last week helped with feeling more balanced in this concrete jungle.
And being able to use our kitchen/dining room again after one month of Tim Hortons, diners and takeouts, has been one of the greatest thing that happened this month.
Finally having a place to cook, eat and hangout with my roommates and friends at my new home, makes this experience a bit more enjoyable.
