Had a great time with Kevin Neeld BSC, MS, CSCS, PRT, and the crew at Endeavor Sports Performance in a fantastic facility talking Impingement and Instability. Fortunately, there was not a cheerleading competition going on next door like Jen got to enjoy or a dog show going on next door like Mike got to enjoy, just the peace and quiet of neurological reference centers going off during slow and controlled movement patterns.
We talked about the power and significance of the frontal plane across the ankle and foot and up into the hips and pelvis. We talked about the diaphragm’s ability to position itself so the frontal plane abdominals worked with the lower extremities to stabilize the rotating human torso. The integration of frontal plane lower half movement for transverse plane upper half performance was a central topic throughout the weekend. In fact, it prompted my visit to the statue of Philadelphia’s most famous sports figure, the fictional Rocky Balboa. I talked with Rock about not holding both arms so high over his head all the time because it could compromise his breathing and limit the power of his rotational performance throughout his thorax. He said, “Yo, James, I’m not even a real boxer. It’s just a movie.” I assured him that I understood that fact and that I wouldn’t blow his cover.
