Hip Pain Relief Piriformis SI joint Yoga Tune Up
lastly you need to use your Yoga Tune Up Balls to target powerful muscle call the piriformis. the the piriformis is a major muscle in yourbuttocks. that helps to rotate your thigh bone outwards. The muscle starts right about at your SI joint that's called the sacroiliac joint.
You can find it by looking for the dimples in your sacrum There's a little dimple here on the inner edgeof each buttock. so you take your balls and place it right thereon that dimple and then slowly start to shimmy you hips along the muscle from side to side.
the muscle the piriformis overlies the sciatic nerve and often when people have sciatic nerve painit's because the piriformis is so tight now because you're shimmying and your buttocksdo have some amount of size to them from time to time you're gonna have to resetthe balls because your buttocks are going to be pushing the balls out of the way and one more thing to do to get deeper intothat piriformis is to drop one knee the at a time as you shimmy
and he will definitely need to reset yourballs but oh my goodness this is so incredible What a massage, right into that piriformis.
Training With Joint Muscle Soreness and Injuries GOOD OR BAD IDEA
No pain, no gainé It depends on what kindof pain you're talking about. If you're training at all with pain and injury, this is one tutorialyou don't want to miss. What's up, guysé Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX.COM Today we're going to talk about the number1 question we get here on this channel. We see it over and over again. And that's, 'Jeff, what do I do if I'm inpain when I'm trainingé I've got this hurting me or that's bothering me. Should I continueto train or should I step away from the gymé' It's a question that's right up my alley becauseas a Physical Therapist and a professional
Strength Coach, I actually get to addressthis and see this from both sides of the spectrum. I get to see it in the acute stage when somebody'sactually rehabbing, and then see them as they attack their workouts once again. And try to make sure that these pains andissues don't recur and come back. So, I feel like I'm uniquely qualified here to help youwith this. And it starts right here, guys with what Icall the cycle of pain. If you're trying to figure out whether ornot you should go back into the gym or continue working out around an injury, it's reallygoing to come down to this cycle of pain.
And that means, when you get pain or discomfortin a lift and it could be your knees on a squat, or it could be your shoulder on a benchpress. Or it could be even your shoulder on a SideLateral Raise. When you feel that pain, the first thing that's going to happen is you'regoing to get altered joint mechanic pattern. So, if it's that squat and I feel pain inmy knees, the first thing I'm going to do is whaté Instinctively try to find a way toavoid the pain. So, the same thing on a Shoulder Side LateralRaise. I feel pain when I'm in this range from here to here.
So, I instinctively try to find a way thatI don't have to have the motion occur in my shoulder so I kind of lift, lean maybe, youknow, pull up a little bit with my trap. What's worse is, a lot of times these alteredjoint mechanics are not even perceptible in the mirror because they're happening internally. So, you can't even all the time see them butyou know that they're happening. With these altered joint mechanics, the next thing we'llsee is weakness. So, let's go back to the squat example. IfI feel too much pain when I squat with my knees and I try to lean a little bit more
to take the descent out of the knees and putit more into the hips, guess what happensé The quads don't get much work. So, if we're taking our altered joint mechanics,the quads are now doing half of the work they're supposed to be responsible for. That leads to quad weakness. So, you'll seea decrease in muscle size or an inability to reach the muscle size that you should when you start to avoid yourpain, alter your point mechanics and then cause weakness andor a decrease of musclesize.
What goes along with the altered mechanicsis also a compensation. You know, the body is smart. It's going to get to what it hasto do. It's going to get to point B from point A.The problem is, it shifts the load often times to joints that are illequipped to handlethose loads. Again, with the example of the squat. As I try to lean more forward to take theknees out of the equation, I put more of it onto the hips, but more so, I put more ofit onto my low back. So, the low back is illequipped to handlethe loads of a back squat as you lean forward.
Knee Pain With Exercise SURPRISING CAUSE and HOW TO FIX IT
What's up, guysé Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX.COM. Let's talk today about knee pain. If you've been lifting for any length of time,likely you've had some sort of knee pain or might have knee pain in the future if you'renot doing the right things. Guys, knee pain can debilitate your leg workouts.I know. I've suffered from it, and I know what it can do to your legs when you're tryingto squat and especially squat heavy. So, what I want to do today is first of allcover a couple of the reasons what might be causing your knee pain
because that's going to be important to understandthe difference, and then show you one that I think is really common especially for guysthat train and lift weights. So, if we look here, we've got our boy Raymond,and we've got our skeleton, so what you'll see is that in the knee we've got a lot ofdifferent sources of pain. Now you guys have probably heard about ACLpain and MCL pain and LCL, right. Well we're talking about tears really because those are ligaments that get injuredsports most often. The ACL and PCL are inside the knee.
The LCL and MCL are going to be on the insideand outside of the knee, and basically, that's just one source of injury but we've also gotosteoarthritic changes that can happen where you actually get degenerative changeson the bone, the bone on bone area, or on the underside of the patella here that grindsup against the femur. We could talk about that in a second. We alsohave meniscus issues. Guys talk about that. It's the cushion between the two bones here,the tibia and the femur, that gives us that space between the jointthat can wear down or tear. But I find that the most common injury that we get when wetrain,
our inflammatory conditions from overuse ofthe patellar tendon. So, the patellar tendon, this is what you're seeing right here,ok. And what it does is, it runs over the patella,here it holds it in place, and you can get inflammation of this a lot of times causingpatellofemoral issues, we've heard that before, and it impacts thetracking of the patella when your knee goes into flexion extension. So, as we flex the knee and extend the knee,you want normal mechanics of the patella so you get this glide.
And it glides right in this groove right here.You can see that it's supposed to glide right in this groove. But what will happen is, it starts to getout of position. Well, guess whaté This isn't a knee issue. I've talked about this before,this is not a knee issue. The knee is a train, and this is its track.Here, and here. So guess what happens when the track gets twistedé The knee in the train goes flying off thetrack. So, when you start looking and focusing all your efforts on the knee pain and tryingto, you know, cure the patellofemoral issues,
or try to cure your patellar tendonitis, andyou're not paying any attention to the track, you're way off track. So, what you want to do is, you want to startlooking for the source and the cause of your knee pain because most often, 99 percent ofthe time, the source of that is going to be somewhereelse. And when we look at this, it's either going to be the track at the bottom, whichis going to be controlled by your ankle and foot, or, the track at the top which is going tobe caused by, or controlled by the muscles
