TO BEND THE KNEE
While some people struggle with hypermobility, others struggle to stretch their leg. In this case, the hamstrings in this case are trapped in a shortened retention pattern. Just stretching over and over again will not teach the body to release tension. However, there is a solution to gain range of motion, and also involves activating our muscles, in this case the quadriceps to straighten the knee (the quadriceps are the 4 muscles of the thigh, and its main function is to straighten the knee). Matt demonstrates how we can achieve this by pulling the ball joint up. This “reciprocal inhibition” action contributes to our ability to find better range of motion and flexibility in the hamstrings at overtime. More on this in Mobility Immersion.
Understanding our bodies and getting in tune with our tendencies opens up opportunities for a more complete experience of our postures.
Once we approach and take the necessary actions, what we discover is unlimited potential.
This unlimited potential awaits you in Matt’s current 12-class dive entitled “Mobility”. You have lifelong access to this dive, where Matt takes you on a journey through major areas of the body exploring how to increase mobility while developing greater strength and muscle integrity. Instead of sacrificing your joints for the sake of getting a posture, you will learn to keep your joints secure by developing the necessary strength in each area of your body.
