Running

I attended a conference today and the subject was tendinopathy in running athletes. There were some great speakers including Frans Bosch, Raph Brandon and Craig Ranson, to name but a few! I have pages of notes to digest and I’ll get some thoughts up soon.

I managed to get a quick session in at CrossFit Northampton – the guys were kind enough to open their doors. You should check the facility out!

What is CrossFit Northampton?

3 position snatch (Floor/below knee/hi hang) – 97.5kg (2.5kg PB)

Shankle complex – 130kg (equal PB)

Front squat – 135x3x5

This is the Shankle Complex. I could have posted my 130 but this is FAR more enjoyable to watch!

Are you REALLY in pain?

I’ve spent some time (quite a lot) reading, and re-reading a great series of posts from Todd Hargrove. He is summarising talks by Lorimer Moseley and Paul Hodges on the issues of chronic pain and motor control.

WARNING – Prepare for you brain to be fried!

Here are the links

Part 1 – Part 2 – Part 3 – Part 4

These first four parts are just his thoughts on Moseley’s talk. He hasn’t started on Paul Hodges!!

I’d love to here your thoughts!

Flexibility – Mobility – Stability

Do think about the why you are stretching and more importantly HOW you are stretching?
