TRS blog #1 👉 Welcome to The Ready State!

Let me be the first to welcome you to The Ready State! I am thrilled to introduce you to the new home of MobilityWOD, evolved. Like you, we recognize that the world of strength and conditioning, fitness, pain management, and even personal wellness care are in the middle of exciting growth in technological sophistication and decentralization.

TRS blog #2 👉 Ground Game: Why Sitting More On the Ground Transform Your Life

Human beings have been around for a long time. I am fond of saying that we look remarkably similar to the way we did even just ten-thousand years ago. Our femurs are probably a little longer now, and we’re all a little fatter.


TRS blog #3 👉 Why You Should Move and Exercise With Your Feet Straight-(er)

Let’s just say it outright: having full access to your body’s potential is harder than it sounds. This is especially true as modern people. Let’s face it, sometimes it’s just not practical to squat barefoot on the subway or in the boardroom. In the well-defined tug-of-war that is nurture vs. nature, we can change the “nurture” to be “shaped by the environment” and “nature” to mean, what is it a human being is supposed to be able to do given our 2.5 million years old physiology?

TRS blog #4 👉 The Ready State: What is optimal physical health?

What if I told you that winning championships, games or the last workout does not necessarily mean we are at our optimal physical health. Before you write me off for blasphemy, hear me out… We typically look at elite athletes and other humans who push the boundaries of the human form as icons of physical health. In my humble opinion, some may be, but most aren’t. When we become highly specialized in our craft, we have to sacrifice. Sacrifice is necessary for our life and sometimes even noble. But unfortunately, a lot of the sacrifices from the 1%’ ers come from not being attentive to our movement mechanics, mobility, pain patterns and awareness of our effect on others. All for the sake of performance metrics. 


TRS blog #5 👉 How To Get READY: 3 Ways to Achieve Your Ready State

Now that we’re on the same page on what our Ready State is, it’s time to get to work.
In order to perform when you need to and live in a predominantly pain-free resting state, we need to do our homework and be open to learning…every. damn. day. We can’t just hope to magically arrive in a state of optimal health. A common misunderstanding is that people are born happy, healthy and ready to kick ass. That is a bullshit excuse we give ourselves to get out of doing the difficult work and claiming our true human potential. 

TRS blog #6 👉 4 Nutrition Tips To Upgrade Your Athletic Performance

Serious training requires serious preparation. Nail these four strategies to take your performance to the next level.

The other day, I overheard some of our athletes debriefing each other after an intense conditioning workout. The theme of the conversation was earning their next meal by going hard in the gym. This mindset is flawed. Unfortunately, it’s pervasive in our industry, and it’s even the motto for some nutrition professionals. Stop trying to earn your food by working out! Instead, earn your workout by following these 4 nutrition tips to upgrade your athletic performance, and even recover better.


TRS blog #7 👉 In On The Conversation: Ian McKeown

The Ready State is tip of the mobility spear, and as such we find ourselves working with and alongside some remarkable coaches and their athletes. The exchange of information is two-way and the coaching insights are too numerous to count. Oftentimes we’ll incorporate our learnings into some of the programming we include for our Virtual Mobility Coach subscribers, or the programming for our athletes in the gym.


TRS blog #8 👉 My 10-Minute Morning Mobility Routine

I am asked two questions a lot.  Like, a lot.  

    1️⃣ Do you have a simple and quick 10 minute morning mobility routine?
    2️⃣ What does your morning look like?

The answer to both is actually the same. But before I dive into the goods, let me quickly explain my thinking and how my morning “practice” has evolved.
 
 

TRS blog #9 👉 FROZEN SHOULDER: What It Is and How To Tackle It

Let’s start with this. Our shoulders are designed to be the most versatile and mobile joints. We use them to perform a plethora of things from functional tasks such as feeding ourselves to high-level activities such as throwing a ball 100 mph or handstand walking our way into the Guinness Book of World Records. When we lose the ability to access the full capacity of this amazing joint due to frozen shoulder, it sucks! Although there are several unknowns about how or why this develops, it can be a physically and emotionally draining experience. 

 
  

TRS blog #10 👉 In on the Conversation: EC Synkowski

I’ve been working with EC Synkowski for over a decade, and in that time I have leaned heavily on her to help me interpret the Wild West of shifting nutritional advice. I’ve been playing EC’s 800-gram game for a spell now and it has become the cornerstone to my daily nutritional habits. So when EC popped out to the West Coast for a conference, I grabbed her for a quick chat.  Enjoy!
