Getting Sideways

Technology!

YouTube Tuesday: For Dad(s)

Morning Folks! We’re back at it on the Restore/Thrive YouTube Channel today. We received another user request, this one from my Dad. Today we’re taking on shoulder pain. Specifically, if you’re an overhead athlete, a desk-bound worker trying to stay active, a busy mom carrying your kids around, or just a dude who wants to lift heavy stuff but can’t get rid of that nagging ache in your shoulder, this one’s for you. Enjoy!

Morning, Folks! We just posted another video on the YouTube channel. This one comes from a reader request: how to deal with shin splint pain. There are several areas to consider in the lower leg in terms of mobility and strength that we go over in the video. Enjoy, and feel free to add your questions or requests for future content on the blog or the vlog in the comment section below!

Training Kids

Outlining the Restore/Thrive Approach

Morning Folks! We’re back on the YouTube Channel today. This time we’re talking training philosophy. One of the questions we answer most often is “What sports are your kids doing?”. The simple answer-none. Why? That’s the topic of discussion today. If your kids haven’t mastered these basics, getting them involved in sports may actually hinder their athletic development.

YouTube Update 5/23/17

Helping the whole world run faster and hurt less.

Morning, Folks! The beat goes on and we’ve got a great foot and ankle exercise up on our YouTube Channel for those of you looking to improve your running, be it for distance, or a field/court sport. This will be especially useful for you if you’ve been told you have flat feet or need an orthotic insert in your shoes to run, train, play without pain. Remember, your arches are not weight bearing surfaces. If they’re flat, they’re weak. And just like flabby arms, it is within your reach to shape them up.  Get after it and have a great day!

YouTube Update & An Item

Morning folks! It’s Tuesday and that means more YouTube goodness. Click on over to the Restore/Thrive YouTube Channel to check out a quick primer on performance enhancement through a better warm-up.

The extra item for today could be called a “Programming Update”, for lack of a better term. We’re going to be chasing down some big goals over the next 10 weeks. Primarily, opening our first neighborhood gym space. Simultaneously, we’ll be pushing out our first piece of downloadable content for folks not in the area who need some guidance fixing common physical limitations that are impeding their performance in whatever pursuits of a physical nature they’re engaged in.

If that sounds like a lot to tackle in just over two months, that’s because it is.

Which brings us to our programming update. With a few exceptions, you will experience Restore/Thrive on YouTube for the better part of the next 10 weeks. As much as we love to drop knowledge via the blog, we’re not big on putting out less than our best when it comes to content.

Our only ask is that you bear with us (and subscribe to the YouTube Channel!) while we work out these growing pains.

Happy Tuesday, everyone!
