If you follow Metabolic Health/ Ray Peat style eating this is a good breakfast option. Even if you don't probably still good. :)
While we still self identify as a personal training studio, at A2E we do a lot of pain relief work. This is an example of the types of assessments and drills we use. You're unlikely to find this level of work and detail in many other places.
"Patients were often seen three times a week, week in and week out, month in and month out. I cannot ever recall exercise of any relevance being given to the patient. The treatment was entirely passive, and there was no patient responsibility in the whole process. The brunt of all patient-therapist interactions was in communicating the symptom behavior during the range of movement assessment. To me, the symptoms were very cleverly 'played with', but the patient never moved on."

Hey Jordan, I remember you liked or posted on an article/video about a breathing apparatus which worked the diaphragm muscles or something like that. It was a simple device with resistive inhale and exhale. I looked all over this page and cannot locate it, would you still remember by any chance. I think it was around 20$ and the guy recommended 20 breaths in the morning and end of the day. Thanx
HELP! I am trying to locate the original 2-PART Swing correction video by Jordan from years ago. I am not referring the the Swing Correction by Jordan currently on youtube. The one I'm looking for he was wearing an averagetoelite T-shirt. I did find a link on your page to it from years ago but it comes up as a private video.

I found the 2-parter incredibly helpful. Any help would be appreciated. Also wondering where I can purchase the corrections dvd or is it no longer available?

Thanks!

We miss your classes Jordan! Hope you are well and that we'll get to come work out with you sometime soon :)
Hey Jordan, Thanks for putting out your corrective and instructional videos on Youtube.....I spent the morning watching and practicing with your sn**ch videos and then did AOS Newport with Anthony Dilugio and found my sn**ch has improved and im dragging on my palm less and banging my wrist less...I still have a ways to go but im hopeful I will get it down! Can't wait for your dvd!

👉Habit development is a lifelong process. It can be a positive habit like getting regular exercise or a negative one like staring at your phone during mealtime. 😰 So why is the latter such a problem? If you want to get the most out of your food in terms of fueling your workouts, you want to be in a more parasympathetic nervous system dominant state, which means rest and digest. If I'm looking at a screen (particularly stressful news or social media) it can up-regulate the sympathetic nervous systsem (fight or flight) and actually interfere with my digestion and nutrient absorption, which in turn impedes recovery and diminishes training performance.

Product Review: The Whoop Band - Average To Elite Performance

This is a blog post on a new fitness tracker I've been using called the Whoop Band. Most fitness trackers don't actually do very much aside from count your steps and maybe read your heart rate. The few that capture HRV (in my opinion) don't actually do that much with the information aside from spit a vague number back at you. The Whoop Band takes information from your heart rate, HRV and sleep cycles and distills it down into usable data that can change the way you train.

I used to focus on the moment when it came to my own training. I was too micro. This can cause us to over reach, to want everything to be heavy right now. Sometimes it needs to be heavy in 30 days or 90 days or a year. I see this when I watch an athlete trying to do box jumps with a cast on their arm or doing kettlebell swings with their leg in a brace. Discipline isn’t just about getting in the gym and doing work but about being able to see your training from 30k feet and know that sometimes you need to hold back today so that you can crush it tomorrow.

Comparison of anxiety between students of physical education & sport science and other students in Iran

This doesn't necessarily prove anything, but modulating exercise intensity could be important for minimizing the intensity of anxiety. I can make a reasonable assumption that the physical education students had a higher overall exercise intensity than the students of other disciplines. Non-physical education students had a greater incidence of anxiety but the physical education students had more intensity to their episodes.

Basic study on the most relaxing respiration period in children to aid the development of a respiration-leading stuffed toy - IEEE Conference Publication 06/24/2019

Basic study on the most relaxing respiration period in children to aid the development of a respiration-leading stuffed toy - IEEE Conference Publication

Most people breathe at far too quick a pace, and this comes with a host of negative consequences in terms of health and performance. Optimal is generally 3-6 seconds for each inhale and exhale. Most people I test in my studio are at about 1 second for each inhale and exhale. It's not uncommon for me to find people breathing even faster than that. This is an interesting study looking at optimal breathing in children in relation to HRV levels to develop a respiration based toy for children with PTSD.

J Clin Psychiatry/A Multisite Study of Initial Respiration Rate and Heart Rate as Predictors of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder 06/20/2019

J Clin Psychiatry/A Multisite Study of Initial Respiration Rate and Heart Rate as Predictors of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder

Super, super, super important information relating to the development of PTSD. This study drew a connection between elevated heart rate and respiration during admission after traumatic injury and the likelihood of developing PTSD. My question: If you could go back before the injury, did they always have elevated HR and respiration? Dysfunction in different neural structures particularly at the brainstem level (pneumotaxic center) could cause this to have been a pre-existing chronic condition, but if no one is there to tell you, you may never know. So it's not that you have this problem because of the trauma. It was always there and set you up for PTSD. This is part of why the Wim Hof and Z-Health breathing exercises were so instrumental in eliminating my PTSD. Over the past two months my resting heart rate has dropped from an average of 85 bpm to 65 bpm.

What if a high school soccer team trained without a ball? What if you only ever worked on strength and conditioning and field drills, but without the use of the ball? Leaving out the training of sports vision is just as big a problem, and despite this training being well supported both in the research and anecdotally, almost no sports teams train it in any kind of focused and consistent manner. It's also important to note the effects of training convergence (CN III and CN IV) on other midbrain structures. Particularly the tectum and its role in visual and auditory processing via the superior and inferior colliculus, both of which are obviously important on the field.

Neuroprotective Effects of Trigeminal Nerve Stimulation in Severe Traumatic Brain Injury 06/11/2019

Neuroprotective Effects of Trigeminal Nerve Stimulation in Severe Traumatic Brain Injury

I know I'm supposed to be posting photos of my food, but I'll do this instead. Research on the use of Trigeminal (Cranial Nerve V) stimulation post traumatic brain injury to improve function. Additional information from me: CN V also innervates the anterior meninges (brain covering) and dysfunction could be implicated in chronic headaches/ migraines that occur in this region. Also worth noting in regard to PTSD the role of the tensor tympani muscle within the ear in dampening sound. A common finding in PTSD symptoms is trouble with loud noises. The tensor tympani is innervated by a branch of the trigeminal nerve. So now we have some anatomical context for why CN V stimulation helps post-TBI. Also a bunch of other stuff, but too much to get into here. Worth nothing that a history of traumatic dental work could be linked to some people developing more significant TBI symptoms that others because they were already compromised. A full cranial nerve exam should be done after any dental work.
