Usually, when we think of working the hip, we think about moving the leg in the hip joint. Here we are working on internal and external hip rotation by moving the pelvis over the standing leg.

One of the properties of fascia is its elasticity. Healthy fascia is what gives us bounce and spring in our body and movements. When tension is placed on fascia, it “stores” energy and then when that tension is released, the fascia springs back, releasing that stored energy.
“Tiger Tail” is a great fascia exercise that focuses on this elastic property.

• Stand with your feet about shoulder width apart and toes pointed forward.

• Begin to spin your hips and torso and allow your arms to swing.

• Spin until you feel the natural end of your rotation and allow your arms to wrap around your torso.

• Then, without effort, feel how the body recoils and spins in the other direction.

• Continue for 10-20 reps on each side.

Not only will you feel a wonderful release in the hips and back, but you will also by hydrating your facia!

Traditional strength training exercises target mid-range tissues and build bulk/mass.
Functional Range Conditioning exercises target end-range tissues, increase active ranges of mobility, and strengthen the joints.

This is what Thomas Myers (a leader in the world of fascia), has termed the Spiral Line. It is a continuous line of fascial tension that wraps around the body in 2 opposing helices 🧬 and “helps to maintain balance across all planes”.
With this visual we can better understand how tension on one side of the body can actually create an effect on the other side of the body.
Imagine if there were a restriction in the area that crosses over the front of the right hip. Not only could it create issues at the site of restriction, but also anywhere along either of the 2 spiral lines, AND, these lines are not isolated, they interact with other fascial lines.
Our body truly is a web of interconnections and needs to be approached as a whole rather than individual parts.

This stretch has many names, but I know it as “Upper Spinal Floor Stretch”, and it is one of my (and my clients’!) favorites because it stretches so many areas at the same time - and it feels SO good 😄
Depending on where your body is tight, you might feel this stretch in your:
• outer thigh
• hip
• waist
• low back
• abdominals
•mid back
• diaphragm
• ribs
• upper back
• chest
• shoulder
• arm
Wow! 🤯

When I do this stretch I feel it in very different places depending on if I rotate to the left or the right.
Give it a try and see where your body needs this stretch.

To set up:
✅ lie on your side and pull your knees up so that your hips are bent at a 90° angle and your knees are also bent at 90°.
✅ stack your knees right on top of each other and place your BOTTOM hand on your knees.
✅ keeping your hips and knees stacked (your hand on your knees will help you know if your top hip/knee slide back), rotate your chest open to the ceiling and open your top arm out to the side.
✅ the goal would be that your hips would stay stacked and your spine will rotate 90°, and your shoulders and outstretched arm will lay flat on the floor with nose pointed up to the ceiling.

Did you know that the bottom of your foot 🦶 is LITERALLY connected to your head👤?

We have a continuous line of fascial tension that runs from the bottoms of our feet, up the backs of our legs, up either side of the spine, and over the top of our skull, and connects above our eyebrows that is called the Superficial Backline.

The SBL is what brings us out of the fetal position and into an upright position. If it is weak, we will tend to fall or slump back into a flexed fetal position, and if it is tight it can cause tension such as back pain, disc problems, tight hamstrings or calves, plantar fasciitis, and more.

Working on shoulder flexion.

🔹 Passively bring the shoulder into its greatest range of flexion without any pain or compensation and hold.
🔹 Then drive the pole down into the floor for PAILs, Progressive Angle Isometric Loading.
🔹 Next release your hold on the pole and try to keep your shoulder/arm from lowering it all (Passive Range Hold Lift Off)

Strength training the joint at its end ranges is how you increase joint mobility, close the gap between passive flexibility and active mobility, mitigate injuries, increase recovery.

Have you heard the terms, “locked short”, or “locked long”? This refers to tissue that is regularly put into positions that either shortens the tissue or lengthens the tissue, and the nervous system and fascial system then “locks in” this habitual pattern.
In this image, the purple indicates tissues that are being passively shortened and the green indicates tissues that are being lengthened.

If we repeatedly put our bodies in these positions and don’t do enough movement to counter them, we begin to create imbalances that affects the way our bodies function. Fascia becomes dehydrated and sticky, clamping down on tissues, muscles become weak and ineffective at balancing posture, joints begin to limit their ranges of motion, nerves become strained, circulation declines, and tissues can’t exchange waste and nutrients as well.

To find out more about what patterns you may have been developing over the years and how to regain your balance and mobility, book a session with Tanya, our Fascial Stretch Therapist and Functional Range Conditioning Mobility Specialist.

There is so much going on here!

🔹As he lays on his stomach he is tucking his pelvis and trying to get the front of his hip flat into the floor as he uses the strap to pull his heel close to his glutes.
This is giving him a passive stretch of the hip flexors, quads, and knee joint.

🔹He is going to breathe with his diaphragm (not just shallow breathing into the upper lungs), and hold this passive stretch for 2 minutes. This will allow his nervous system time to relax and give the tissue more flexibility.

🔹After his 2 minute hold, he is going to maintain his hold on the strap while he activates his quads and tries to straighten his knee. This is called Progressive Angle Isometric Loading, or PAILs and is strengthening the tissues in the front of the hip, leg, and knee.

🔹Immediately following his round of PAILs, he is going to activate his hamstrings and glutes and try to keep his heel close to his seat, and the front of his hip pressing into the floor as he releases his hold on the strap (⚠️be prepared for some cramping ⚠️ ) This is called Regressive Angle Isometric Loading, or RAILs and is strengthening the tissues on the back side of the hip, leg, and knee.

🔹He is going to repeat the PAILs and RAILs for 3 rounds.

With this exercise, he is strengthening the tissues on both sides of his hip and knee joints which will:

✅ give him more passive flexibility

✅ increase his active mobility

✅ help close the gap between his passive and active ranges of mobility (which is where most injuries occur)

✅ strengthen the hip and knee joints

To learn more about increasing your flexibility/mobility, improving your joint health, and preventing injuries, book a session with Tanya, our Functional Range Conditioning Mobility Specialist
