“The SternoCleidoMastiod muscle is a truly grand stabilizer. When used appropriately at its longest eccentric length, it can only help to elevate the sternum, secure the clavicles towards the horizon and keep our head on straight. Your SternoCleido Mastiod (SCM) initiates the proper set point for your cranial, cervical and brachial plexus nerves and the varied vascular processes around the regions as well. Muscles pull you into position, try not to push so hard” (Foundation Training)

Your head being the heaviest part of the skeleton means it needs strong and supportive muscles to ensure it’s being carried properly. Offset head positions that sink forward with gravity effect balance, muscle activation and cause that ‘break’ point with tension, pain and a compressive posture. Foundation Training exercises teach how to activate this muscle and teach how to pull back away from gravity.

Working with full muscle chains in Foundation Training means we look at rebalancing the whole structure. By focusing in this way we are able to address postural complications and bring the whole body into a more balanced state in space and movement. ——————————————

Think of your pelvis like the foundations of a house.
We wouldn’t start loading external resistance to a wonky house foundation, and if we did we’d most likely end up with something resembling the house in the image above.
—————————————
Isla from @ftinstructors can fully relate to this analogy.
“I struggled with chronic injury throughout training as a professional dancer, after graduation, and when my focus turned to weight training in the years following.
I exhausted countless appointments with various healthcare professionals where focus was generally on isolated exercises (firing the glutes, stretching the pirifmonis, mobilising the shoulder) and still found no long term recovery.
Foundation Training brought me to discover the root cause and move past the focus being on symptomatic areas of pain or specific weakness distributed throughout the body.
Discovering, and understanding, the impact of the left anterior torsion of my pelvis lead me to really start unpicking the 11 years of chronic injury I had been controlled by, and I finally began moving forward.
By beginning to rebalance the body, the torsion in the pelvis reduced and I found each area of pain start to dissolve.”
————————————
Once strength is built throughout the deep structural muscles of the body; load, weight and external resistance can start to be applied.
Only once functional strength, hip hinge and balance is built will “weight training” create positive, long term results.

This “simple” concept will change the way you approach your body, how you move through daily life and will lead you to a pain free, frustration free-ing life! ——————————————
