What are you waiting for you? Why havent you gotten yourself in the best shape of your life yet? Are you scared? Are you waiting for the perfect time? Dont know what first step to take?
Whatever your doing right now stop and think about where you would like to be. Challenge yourself here, how much better could you become? You can control your next step and not make it like any other step, you can bring on a new way of thinking, new way of doing and new way of life! Anyone can talk about doing something tomorrow or a week from now or month from now but not everyone can take action and get things done! Those who take action become successful. Dont be ordinary like everyone else, be better.....dominate!
Let me know what action you take today~

Here is another video from my friend and physical therapist Mike Kelly. This video describes the function and muscular interactions of the lower extremity. The video provides information about the critical importance of hip strength during functional activities. Hip strength provides the lower extremity with the strength and stability for gait, running, squatting and for balance. Hip strength The video demonstrates both non-weight bearing and weight bearing activities for hip strengthening. The weight bearing activities also help increase strength in functional planes.

Here is a guest post from Mike Kelly, a good friend, and great physical therapist.
By: Mike Kelly
The shoulder joint is a "ball and socket" joint in which the humeral head(ball) moves upon the small glenoid surface on the scapula(socket). The large humeral head requires a significant amount of stability in this space, and the rotator cuff serves this function. The deltoid is the primary mover in many regions, but if the deltoid overpowers the rotator cuff or poor postures are used, it can alter the mechanics of this joint structure and can cause rotator cuff lesions and shoulder dysfunction.
The video describes just a few of the exercises necessary for proper rotator cuff strength. For proper shoulder health, these need to be incorporated with scapular strengthening along with other rotator cuff exercises. These are just a sampling of key exercises.
For further information, questions, or injury assessments please feel free to contact Mike Kelly, PT at DMikeKelly@gmail.com

Lets face it doing cardio on the treadmill and bike gets boring after a while. Myself, I hate cardio and I know most of my clients do too. This routine is great because it is different and way more interesting than traditional cardio workouts. This routine can be done anywhere. It can be done at home or even in a hotel room or office.
Set the timer for 25 minutes and see how many complete rounds you can finish. Remember you can take whatever rest you need but try to push yourself. Record how many rounds you get and the next time out you want to top that. Do this workout for a third day and aim to beat the workout before.
1) High knees in place-30 sec
2) Jumping jacks-30 reps
3) Squat and kick-10 reps each leg
4) Back kick-10 reps each leg
5) Surfer get-ups-5 reps each side
6) Heisman hops-10 reps each leg
7) Jacknives-10 reps
8) Lateral shuffle-8 reps ( there and back equals 1 )
