For all my American friends, tomorrow represents a big day for your democracy. For my friends in the rest of the world, it’s Tuesday. We’ll still watch because America affects us all, and to be honest, it’s somewhat entertaining to see from a distance, but hopefully everyone south of the wall gets a chance to vote and vote safely.
Scientific Applications of Mobility Training – December 5th
With covid cases runnin’ more wild than Hulkamania in the 80s, attending live in-person events kind of loses its lustre, so getting continuing education credits and picking up new skills and info can be challenging. This is why I wanted to bring back my Scientific Applications of Mobility Training workshop as a webinar. I ran this in May and it was quite successful, with people attending from 6 different countries.
We’ve already had people from 8 countries register for the event on December 5th, from 4 continents, and even if the exact time of the event doesn’t work for you and your specific time zone, you will be provided with a recording of the workshop as well as continuing education credits through the NSCA.
What’s All This Positional Breathing Stuff About? The Implementation of Training Principles – Michelle Boland via TonyGentilcore.com
Breathing for gas exchange is pretty automatic, but breathing is essentially a mobility pump that can be utilized to get more movement from other structures, other muscles to fire up as needed, and produce better results from using it appropriately.

How the Pandemic is Changing Our Exercise Habits – New York Times
Change breeds change. Some people went from living in gyms to trying to work out in their living rooms. Others embraced (gasp!) cardio as biking or running. Some dug into their couches and Netflix’d themselves into oblivion.
The interesting thing about change is how people adapt to it. There’s no right or wrong way, just outcomes. Hopefully people can get out and walk or see some sights around their environment and we can party hard once all restrictions are lifted and “normal” can happen again.
Social Media Stuff
Small wins add up, even if they’re not easy to see. Warming up with your max from 6 months ago, getting off the floor unassisted following surgery, even buying a smaller pair of pants if looking to lose weight are wins. Looking to what you can’t do yet misses what you can do now.
