Flexing, Memes, and Crossfit: Knee Pain? Check The Start Of Your Descent Correct Hips Engage Then Squat Down Patella (Kneecap) Area of Pain Patellar Tendon Incorrect Knee Push Forward Too Early Every squat, including a front squat, should start with the hips. In both videos - the squat ends in the same position. It's how the movement begins that makes these two squats different. When the knee moves forward first (right video) the joint instantly takes on forces that can lead to pain over time (for the science nerds out there there this is shear force). It also can push your bodyweight towards your toes - leading you to become off balance. The video on the left shoes a small hip hinge during the start of the squat. The chest then comes forward reflexively to stay balanced. This movement engages the posterior chain (the powerhouse to your body). It also limits pre-mature forward movement of the knee joint. The knee HAS to go forward eventually to reach the bottom position of the movement and keep the chest upright. It however is about WHEN and not IF it moves forward. The knees still flex at the same time the hips move if you do it correctly - they just won't jam forward at the start. In the bottom of the squat the forward knee movement is not harmful to the joint because the shear force is counteracted by a high amount of compression (basically there is a protective effect on the joint when you get there the right way). I have worked with HUNDREDS of patients as a doctor of physical therapy who have complaints of knee pain when squatting - the one common theme for many is loading the knee joint too early. Can some elite athletes get away with this movement sequence with pain?! Sure - but 99% of people CAN NOT. Squatting is all about moving at the hips & staying balanced - the rest takes care of itself. Try a squat at home with both ways of moving. Feel for how the tension in your body is placed when you jam your knee forward first AND when you move at the hips first. You may be surprised at what you find. ___________________________________ Squat University is the ultimate guide to realizing the strength to which the body is capable of. __________________________________ Squat SquatUniversity Powerlifting weightlifting crossfit gym fit fitfam fitness

Africa, Beautiful, and Google: Google Black Women are Black Women are queens Black Women are beautiful Black Women are nurturing Black Women are intelligent Black Women are loyal Black Women are creators Black Women have amazing hair Do not let anyone tell you otherwise Google Search Fooling Lucky Pre-capitalist, matriarchal civilisations in Africa included the Nigerian Zazzau, Sudanese Kandake, Angolan Nzinga, and Ashanti of Ghana, to name but a few. The quintessential African matriarchal system was most evident and most enduring in black Ancient Egypt. Women in Ancient Egypt owned and had complete control over both movable and immovable property, such as real estate in 3000 BC. As late as the 1960s, this right could not be claimed by women in some parts of the United States. A close look at Ancient Egyptian papyrus' reveals that society was strictly matrilinial and inheritance and descent was through the female line. The Egyptian woman enjoyed the same legal and economic rights as the Egyptian man, and the proof of this is reflected in Egyptian art and historical inscriptions. Egypt was an unequal society, but the inequality was based much more upon differences in the social classes, rather than differences in gender. From ancient legal documents, we know that women were able to manage and dispose of private property, including land, portable goods, servants, livestock, and financial instruments such as endowments and annuities. A woman could administer all her property independently and according to her free will and in several excavated cemeteries the richest tombs were those of women. The independence and leadership roles of Ancient Egyptian women are part of an African cultural pattern that began millennia ago and continued into recent times, until Europeans brought colonial Christianity to Africa. In the 1860s, the colonial explorer and Christian missionary, Dr David Livingstone, wrote of meeting female chiefs in the Congo, and in most of the monarchical systems of traditional Africa, there were either one or two women of the highest rank who occupied a position at par with that of the king or complementary to it. Professor of Ancient African History, Barbara Lesko, illustrates how anthropologists who have studied African history and records of early travellers and missionaries tell us, "everywhere in Africa that one scrapes the surface one finds ethno-historical data on the authority once shared by women". chakabars

Memes, Weave, and Chinese: No one is born racist "But how come you are always promoting African beauty, never European beauty, *you are racist man!" Let's address this properly. Who owns the mainstream media, mainly Europeans, so who are they portraying as the standard of beauty? Europeans... I am living in London for now, every time I go into any shop, Europeans are displayed as the standard of beauty. Even in the Church there is a european looking Jesus every where. Hollywood even pays to make ancient African Egypt look European. Africans don't do this. They aren't so insecure or hungry for control over popular imagination, that they try and depict ancient France as African. Europeans have representation everywhere. But when I was in China, do you think the standard of beauty was African... No it was Chinese of course. I don't complain when I see Chinese people loving Chinese beauty or Europeans loving European beauty. If you don't love yourself you can't love anybody else. But when culture is stolen, appropriated & misrepresented by one group, in order to dominate another 😡 It's psychopathic Europeans women trying their hardest to have big lips and hips, darker skin and big backsides. It's crazy that men want more materialism to make up for insecurity within their identity and sexuality. It's crazy (but created Europeans) that African women wear weave, "relax" their hair and bleach their skin, to try and fit in with Europeans. It crazy that some African men exclusively date European women, trying align themselves with power because they feel that have none of their own. This page is ran by me a man of African Caribbean, European and Chinese descent. So I will post whatever I like, Europeans if you don't feel I represent you, go pick up any magazine, turn on the news, watch a movie or just go to the mall. Don't try and change me, because you feel insecure for 30 seconds a day on my page. Try being an African living in Europe... *"You are racist man!" In the 1920s in Jazz bars in North America, Europeans used to call African men boy. The African Jazz bands, who weren't even allowed through the front door, started calling each other man, to empower themselves... chakabars

Advice, Community, and Marriage: In Guinea Bissau, the Bijagos are a matriarchal tribe where women possess all the power. And it's the job of the men to be attractive in order to attract a wife 1 7thsou lja4 On the island of Orango Grande, in the Bijagos Archipelago, off the coast of Guinea Bissau, there is a matriarchal society where women possess all the power, where they organise themselves into associations which manage the economy, social welfare and the law. It is they who impose sanctions, direct, advice and distribute goods, and they are respected as the absolute owners of both the house and the land. Here it is the man who has the obligation to dress very well to attract the attention of a woman. Women hold the supreme power of divorce in marriage. Men are turned to only for the tilling of the fields, hunting monkeys and fishing.Bijago have traditionally resented all centralized authority, whether Portuguese,*French*, English, German or contemporary government officials. In 1447,when the Portuguese explorer, Nuna Tristao, tried to conquer the Bijagos, they killed him instantly because they do not want any form of rule except their matriarchal traditional system that create chiefs to rule them. The Bijagos rose up in rebellion against the Portuguese in 1900, 1913-1915, 1917, 1918, 1924 and 1936. Portugal did not consider the Bijago as pacified until 1936.The political power is in the hands of the village chief, which is being justified by his connection with the ancestors through matrilineal descent. He is a leader of every community, he makes the decisions and controls the distribution of the land. In this important task he is assisted by the council of elders. The women are especially important in the political and cultural system of Bijago, as they determine the chiefs’ line of inheritance. The matriarchal order was so strong that the women selected their men and could force divorce on their husbands, the man keeping the children.Within the clan the inheritance is of the matrilineal type, but after the matrimony the whole family lives in the husband’s house. All of them belong to the clan of the mother. It is important in terms of the allocation of the land and responsibilities typical for Bijagos. 17thsoulja BlackIG17th blackwomenmatter

Oh yea, because it's a hero story so he can't be black. blacklivesmatter The early Greek-Roman gods & goddesses such as Achilles, Apollo, Zeus, Hercules, Athena, Venus, were all Black, being renditions of the Black Egyptian gods. The historian Herodotus himself wrote “the names of nearly all the gods came to Greece from Egypt.” The Aeneid, like the Iliad, Odyssey and all the other great epics of the world, is a poetic story dealing with Black people! Aeneas, the Trojan hero of Virgil’s Aeneid, was in direct descent from Dardanus, the African founder of Troy. Africans gave us Math, Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry! -Including the Arabic Numbers! Africans also originated the world’s first known universities. Greeks created a fictitious God deriving from truthful depictions of historical “Egyptian gods”, to worship and later identify with. Zeus, is Greek in origin, however the Greek gods were simply recreated forms of Egyptian gods, who were the ancient black gods of Egypt (formerly known as Kemet, meaning black land) before it was conquered.
