"Rehab" and the Wild

"Rehab" and the Wild

First things first : 

There isn't really such a thing as A "Rehab" Exercise. 

There are only strength and conditioning exercises, which we use for rehabilitation purposes.

That said, some things get pigeonholed as 'rehabby'. And that's fine -  they crop up a lot more often in rehab programs than as #bro-sesh #hypertrophy #gaainnzzzz clickbait on TNation. 

However, the reason these exercises tend to appear so often in a rehab setting is precisely because they target a weakness or a physical need in a specific, safe and beneficial way. And they don't stop being beneficial once rehab is "complete".  

In Season Strength and Conditioning

In Season Strength and Conditioning

Why is it so important to continue strength training during the season? I’ll give you 2 good reasons: Improved performances and reduced injury risk.

If you think about it, the less you get injured, the more you can train. The more you train (smartly) the better you perform. Especially in team sports, the less players that are out injured, the stronger the team. When the coach has the full squad to choose from, especially the best players available, the more likely you get the results.

Fascia, Tensegrity & The Continuous Ambush of Tension

Now I’m not casting aspersions on any childhood songs in particular, but we have a tendency to imagine the body in movement as a rigid frame being pulled on by distinct muscles to produce specific joint actions. eg: the hamstrings pull on the shin bones to produce knee flexion. While this is not technically incorrect, are we sure this is the best way to view and address human movement?

If we were talking about robots, then I think it would be a fine. In that case, treating any pain or dysfunction would be more a case of finding the part that wasn’t working and fixing the hydraulics at that joint.
