More YouTube Goodness

Optimizing your conditioning work on the bike.

Morning Folks! We’ve got another video up on the Restore/Thrive YouTube Channel. This time we’re going after all you head-chasers and back-rounders on your bikes. The example we used today is on an Airdyne bike, but scales across the board-whether you’re Soul Cycling by candlelight, road biking, or conquering the trails, get your body and your mind right with our primer before you head out.

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!

Morning folks! Hope everyone in the KC-area is getting out and getting after it in the sun and warm weather.

This week’s drop on the Restore/Thrive channel is a quick run down of what my PT friends call “treatment for cervicogenic headache pain”, or what normal folks would call “how to fix a stiff neck and that pounding headache that won’t quit”. Either way you put it, I was in that spot a week ago. But with some time, thought, and the help of a very special friend, I was able to kick a day-long headache and the accompanying neck stiffness it brought in less than 20 minutes.

It’s that approach we’re sharing with you all this week. Enjoy!

Evening, folks! After surviving another Tuesday throw-down of Daddy Daycare at the Cummings’ Family Fitness Center, complete with some backyard antics, the warm-weather has us eagerly anticipating the start of another baseball season.

Today’s video is one near and dear to my heart: are you ready to throw a baseball or softball without trashing your shoulder or elbow? Poor coaching and training led to the end of my baseball career before I was done with college. Out of the injuries I sustained on the diamond came my drive to help other avoid the same fate.

If you are a baseball or softball player, it will take you less than 5 minutes to look under the hood and see if you’re good to go. If you are the parent or friend of a baseball or softball player, please forward this link along to the player you care about. These tests can help them avoid a preventable injury.
