Have you lost it? Do you even know what it is to be resilient? Resiliency, according to Webster is “1) springing back into shape; 2) recovering strength”. You know how as a child, you could do pretty much whatever you wanted physically without worrying about warming up and without stretching first. Now, it sometimes feels like you should warm up before getting out of bed. How did this happen? Is it just a consequence of aging? Is there anything you can do to get it back?
Yes, as a matter of fact there is. You can learn to do what are called “resets”. These resets help you reestablish neuromuscular patterns that have deteriorated over time. If you’ve been coming to Forza! you know what I’m talking about. Some of you have already noticed how seemingly miraculously they can help you move better. Such simple movements we learned as babies can have transformative effects on how you move today. Like the book “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten”, all you really need to know to move better, you learned as a baby or toddler.
So how do you learn these resets? You’re in luck. Forza! is hosting an “Original Strength” workshop on June 22 & 23, 2013 with “Original Strength: Regaining the Body You Were Meant to Have” authors Tim Anderson and Geoff Neupert. Their passion is helping people like you regain your original strength through a simple, and unique way to “reset” your body and overcome movement compensations, dysfunctions, and injuries.
I’m so excited to have these two amazing men come to Forza! and share what they’ve learned about being resilient and regaining our original strength. During this one and a half day workshop, you will learn all of the resets they’ve discovered (rediscovered?) plus determine which resets work for you. While at the “Becoming Bulletproof” workshop I attended last fall, the resets I learned that work for me helped me go from having a difficult time staying in a squat position without falling over to being able to drop into a squat with ease. I found out it had nothing to do with my ankles being tight (which is what if felt like to me), and everyting to do with reflexive core stability, which is what these resets will help you get back.
Please attend and see how these resets can work for you! Even if you’ve learned some of them already, there is still value in spending the time on yourself to learn all of the resets that work best for you. I know there will be new resets that have been added since I attended and I’m really looking forward to learning these and working with Geoff and Tim again. Hope you can join us!
