She had a martial arts background, so we use this as an example. This led to discussion of how the relative movement in the upper extremity changes with position.7:04 This Q&A is with Thanasis who wanted to review the mechanics of cutting in regard to the pelvic outlet and connective tissue behaviors. This also gave us an opportunity to understand the necessity of our intentions with exercise selection and the importance of secondary consequences.19:31 This Q&A is with Jordan who had a question about some change of direction activity the involves manipulation of the foot position as we move into and out of a cut. Recognition of the actual foot position for change of direction will matter as will recognition of foot position for the activity in question in regard to transfer of one activity to another. There are also secondary consequences that influence systemic movement that may be undesirable.

We get into the high specialized athletes like baseball pitchers, training elements throughout the year, and recapturing your KPI’s on a predictable schedule. Really good discussion.4:57 This Q&A is with Shan who is a powerlifter with a Narrow ISA archetype. His question pertains as to why he would choose a conventional vs. Sumo stance in his deadlift. Here’s some reasoning as to why one may be better than the other.11:11 Today’s Q&A is with Anat who had a question regarding Trendelenburg gait causes and solutions. We discuss what you’ll find and what you’ll need to achieve to resolve it.23:57 This Q&A is with Matt who asked a question regarding the influence of idiosyncratic structural differences on how someone may compensate. When we understand what the options are, we can see how individual differences may produce the magnitude of movement limitation or allow movement and adaptation to occur. The “pronated foot” takes on greater meaning when we deepen our understanding.

The Bill Hartman Podcast for The 16%Season 17 Number 10This weeks topics: Cuing abdominal muscles for breathingSleeping position fixConnective tissue yield and timingProgramming and superimposing capabilitiesDon’t forget to check out the latest RECONsider Podcast episode.Hope you had a great week!0:00 This Q&A is with Alex who has a situation where a physical constraint may be interfering with effective breathing. In many cases, the solution to the problem will be determined in real time as you coach them through an activity. This video offers coaching cues and recommendations for techniques as you work through the process.10:23 This Q&A is with Anat who initially had a question about head and neck positioning during activity, but then shifted discussion toward sleeping positions. While there may be some accommodation for comfort required at times, as with movement, sleep position is about recapturing options during the day.24:43 This Q&A is with Alex who asked a foundational question regarding connective tissue yielding behaviors. This allowed us to dig into some specific representations about how this behavior influences the elements of timing and energy transfer during activities. Some great stuff here.38:49 This Q&A is Part 1 of a discussion of programming and organization of training with Greg. Looking at how you can superimpose movement with other qualities such as force production without interfering or minimizing the decline of capabilities is one of the great challenges of how you organize training. This was a long discussion that covers a lot of ground.SUBSCRIBE for even more helpful content:YT: https://www.youtube.com/@BillHartmanPTIG: https://www.instagram.com/bill_hartman_pt/FB: https://www.facebook.com/BillHartmanPTWEB: https://billhartmanpt.com/

This weeks topics: Oscillatory techniques to reduce muscle activityHip, knee, and foot/knee pain500 pounds deadlift/weak hamstrings part 1500 pounds deadlift/weak hamstrings part 20:00 This Q&A is with Bori, Cameron, and Anat as we discuss application of oscillatory methods to reduce or optimize muscle tension. We can apply them to patients/clients and even to ourselves. You’ll often see athletes use them pre-event to help them feel prepared for their event.07:24 This Q&A is with Bori who is working with a client who has some knee issues and some very telling signs that will lead treatment. This gives us an opportunity to review some of the relationships between the foot and rest of the lower extremity.13:32 This Q&A is part 1 of a conversation with Matt who is recognizing the limited perspective of a structural-reductionist model in regard to determining ideal positions for specific activity. Branding a muscle as weak requires a much deeper explanation than making an assumption that there is just something limiting at the actual muscle level. Position always matters.22:15 This Q&A is Part 2 with Matt as we continue talking about the influence of pelvis, joint, and muscle position as an influence on what is perceived as isolated muscle weakness. Positional testing provides us with perspective on why some may believe that the problem lies within an individual muscle rather than understanding the systemic influence. This also provides an understanding of the coordinative strategy to execute a lift like a heavy deadlift.

This weeks topics:0:00 This Q&A is with Alex who had a question regarding bony adaptations and using techniques to reduce compressed representation resulting in the late propulsive external rotation. This allowed us to talk through the reasoning as to why a mobilization may or may not be effective as the starting conditions will matter.07:52 This Q&A is with Thenasis who asked me about how I manage information and learning. I do it the hard way with notecards, paper, and fireboxes. I also use apps to a degree as so much information is electronic.15:01 This Q&A is with Alex who is work on improving a patient’s foot shape and had some questions about the results. This led us to discussing some strategies that may be helpful or hindering especially when it comes to using heel lifts at the wrong time when the leg appears to be short.29:12 This Q&A is with Zach who is making great progress on an athlete after an ACL surgery. She’s having some intermittent knee symptoms with specific activities. Cues and specific exercises are helpful, but we breakdown remaining compensations that may resolve the ongoing symptoms.SUBSCRIBE for even more helpful content:YT: https://www.youtube.com/@BillHartmanPTIG: https://www.instagram.com/bill_hartman_pt/FB: https://www.facebook.com/BillHartmanPTWEB: https://billhartmanpt.com/
