Flexing, Memes, and Work: HOW TO HIP HINGE Neutral Spine @dr.jacob.harden IT'S ALL IN THE HIPS The hip hinge is a fundamental movement that all humans should know how to do. In day to day movement, the hinge helps you move safely and efficiently and distribute stress between the back and hips. It also is a great way for people with low back pain to move pain free.πŸ˜ƒ . Why you should hinge comes down to simply having options. . There is nothing wrong with spinal flexion. It is a natural movement that we should be able to do. But just as we should be able to move with flexion, we should also be able to move without it. πŸ— The more variability we have, the more options we have in our movement. . If you can't hinge, you have no choice but to flex through your spine. And while that's fine to tie your πŸ‘Ÿshoes, it may not be the best way to move your couch or pick up a heavy deadlift, especially if you haven't trained loaded flexion. You need to know how to organize yourself and move efficiently when placed in higher stress situations so that you reduce your injury risk.πŸ‹οΈβ€β™‚οΈ . So if you need to work on your hinge, this is one of my favorite progressions. The key is to load into the hips and keep a neutral spine. It takes time to build this coordination so don't get frustrated if it doesn't come naturally at first. Keep practicing and you'll get it.✌❀ . Tag a friend who needs to move better and share the wealth! . 🎡 - Roman Louder - Cue 1 MyodetoxOrlando Myodetox

Memes, The Penguin, and Green Lantern: HAPPY BIRTHDAY BILLEINGER! DAY ATMAN HISTORYOF a Hey Gothamites! History of the Batman wants to wish American comic book writer and Batman co-creator Bill Finger a bat-tastic 103rd birthday! Born Milton "Bill" Finger on February 8th, 1914, he began writing comic strips in the same studio as artist Bob Kane in 1938. After National Comics (Now @DCComics) approached Kane to create a hero just as popular as their newest star, Superman and Kane conceived the idea for a character called "The Bat-Man", Finger was brought in to ghost write on the project. Not only did Bill Finger do major design changes to Kane's original vision of the Bat-Man, such as changing the red and yellow color scheme to blue and grey, the domino mask to a cowl, the stiff bat wings to a flowing cape, but he also made Bat-Man a scientific detective (inspired by figures like Douglas Fairbanks and Sherlock Holmes), even adding gloves to the vigilante's ensemble. Those elements and Finger's brilliant stories mixed with Kane's superhero vigilante persona refined the character as the dark icon of the DC Universe to Superman's bright image, and the Bat-Man was launched in Detective Comics (Vol 1) 27 in March 1939. Bill Finger's contributions surpass just creating Batman, but he is also credited for mythology such as the Batmobile, the Batcave and naming Batman's home 'Gotham City' [original art by Paul Roman Martinez : The19XX.com]. Finger also co-created classic characters like (but not limited to) Robin, the Boy Wonder, Green Lantern, Wild Cat, The Joker (with Kane and Jerry Robinson), The Riddler (with Dick Sprang) and The Penguin. Finger passed in 1974, and in his honor, Comic-Con International established in 2005 the Bill Finger Award for Excellence in Comic Book Writing. Due to Bob Kane's contract with National Publications back in 1939 stating he was the sole creator of 'the Bat-Man', for 75 years Bill Finger was not credited with the creation of the Caped Crusader. It wasn't until September 2015 when DC Comics announced Finger would begin to see credit for Batman in DC Comics. We thank Bill Finger for being one of the most important aspects of Batman's history by celebrating his creation every day. βœŒπŸΌπŸ’™πŸ¦‡πŸŽ‰
