Jill Miller Smashes Your Guts! (and psoas, and tacked down viscera, and matted down abdominals…) Part 2
Hey Leopard Kind,
Today’s mission is amazing and one of my absolute new favorites (I’ve been hitting it everyday and yes, I’ve stopped feeling like I’m going to black out in the back of the pain cave.) The short story is a simple one. You spend a bloody ton of energy and effort maintaining and creating a stiff trunk. And guess what happens. That’s right you become stiff within tissues that you rely upon to be stiff. Seriously, we’ve been smashing our psoas with sledge hammers and pain balls for years now, but this “global” shear is fantastic and should be a first stop for anyone with back pain, post abdominal surgery, post partum, etc. You may need to toy with the ball size and hardness to get the best effect. Remember, when you black out don’t face plant into the pool of your vomit. Uncool. I’d also suggest that this be done after your primary workout. I’m not a big fan of messing with your stability systems before lifting heavy ass weights.
