Let’s Plantar Flex.Yeah, so she’s got lots
of Plantar Flexion.
That’s full Plantar Flexion.Yeah she’s got full range
of motion at her ankle.
So – but –this is where yoga is such
a brilliant practice because –
at the end of our range of motion,we can often be quite weak.That’s where we
don’t have Tissue Tolerance.
That’s where – in faster sports
and athletics –
that’s where they
injure themselves.
She needs to just back
off that very, very end range
and then resist.So resist into me.
Yeah.
So you’re – see, your
stronger right there.
But you’re going to adapt –you’re gonna get a bit
more Tissue Tolerance
so that you’re stronger here.See – she’s got a mechanical
disadvantage here too, right?
You can see.So if she’s just a little bit –
like not even that much –
just a little bit,that’s where you just
start to be able to catch it.
When it’s higher up, I feel like I
can Activate from there.
So that’s kind of what happens when
people hyper extend at the knee –
They’re just in that –they’ve locked back into
the soft tissue.
They’re not strong there but
the bones are locked in together
because of the
shape of the bones.
And just like you –if you were standing on
that or something –
that’s where the your system
would fail, right there.
And that’s
where the knee fails –
if you’re trying to move out
of a hyper extended position
with any rapidity.So that’s a good rule of thumb.If you’re thinking
about strengthening something –
you want to – you can go
to the End Range
but then you’ve got
to back out of it just a little.
Just a little bit before that End
Range to develop Tissue Tolerance
And develop the firing
pattern of the muscles
and that kind of thing.That’s what we’re doing basically in
that Frisky Pigeon pose.
So we’re here –we’re not quite at
the end of our range –
but we’re developing
strength through the tendons
and the supporting fascial tissue.And then hopefully getting
the other muscles on line.
But we’re just
before our End Range.
Same thing we’re doing here.Like this morning –oh no, that was here.We were – so we don’t
want to be here –
we can be.But here – we’re
strengthening now
and we’re not quite
at our bottom.
Yeah.That’s a fairly good rule of thumb.
