In ancient Greece, Hippocrates (c. 400 BC) used cupping for internal disease and structural problems. Cupping is the term applied to a technique that uses small glass cups or bamboo jars as suction devices that are placed on the skin. There are several ways that a practitioner can create the suction in the cups. One method involves swabbing rubbing alcohol onto the bottom of the cup, then lighting it and putting the cup immediately against the skin. Suction can also be created by placing an inverted cup over a small flame, or by using an alcohol-soaked cotton pad over an insulating material (like leather) to protect the skin, then lighting the pad and placing an empty cup over the flame to extinguish it. Flames are never used near the skin and are not lit throughout the process of cupping, but rather are a means to create the heat that causes the suction within the small cups. http:-www.pacificcollege.edu-news-blog-2014-09-20-many-benefits-chinese-cupping Cupping (hijama) is the best remedy recommended and used by the Messenger (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam). The Messenger (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said, "Indeed the best of remedies you have is cupping (hijama)…" [Saheeh al-Bukhaaree (5371)]. He (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) also said that on the night of Israa (his ascension to the heavens) he (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) did not pass by an angel except that it said to him, "Oh Muhammad, order your Ummah (nation) with cupping (hijama)." [Saheeh Sunan Tirmidhee (3479)]. This shows the importance and greatness of this Sunnah. 'Hijama' in arabic is derived from 'hajm' which means 'sucking'. Cupping (hijama) is the process of applying cups to various points on the body by removing the air inside the cups to form a vacuum.

stiffness: STIFF ARCHES? The plantar fascia ligament attaches from the heel wraps around the ball of the foot, and inserts onto the toes. A taught PF can restrict the ability of the arch to soften and the foot to pronate, leading to the feeling of a stiff arch. Stretching the PF can restore pronation and reduce the feeling of stiffness. @dr.jacob.harden INTENSE EASY TRY THIS! YOU NEED PRONATION! We talk a lot about flat feet and (😲overblow) the horrors of having a foot that pronates too much. But what we don't talk about is the other side of the coin. . 🤔What if your foot can't pronate? . This can lead to issues too. Pronation is a fundamental action in gait mechanics. In order for your foot to absorb and dissipate shock, it needs to pronate. . 🏃‍♀️When you strike the ground, the foot is supinated. As you transfer your weight forward, the arch unlocks and the foot goes into pronation before resupinating. This makes your foot act like a spring. It absorbs the shock and then recoils back. And this is super important! . What will have a softer landing? A spring or a steal beam dropped on its end? The spring of course. The beam will be rigid and vibrate that shock upwards. The same can happen to a rigid foot. It will send that shock somewhere else, like perhaps the tibia (shin splints anyone?). . So what do you need to do? 👉 If you have a stiff arch, try stretching the plantar fascia. It is a main support for the arch and if it is taught, will restrict pronation. Start with the easy version and progress to the intense one. Then see how your feet feel on your next walk or run. Tag a friend with foot pain and share the wealth! MyodetoxOrlando Myodetox

Let's talk about how to fix this problem (FULL 8 MINUTE VIDEO LINKED IN BIO!) 👇🏼 . There are 3 main reasons your toes may spin out as you squat: ankle stiffness, poor foot stability & limited hip internal rotation. In today's video we discuss how to fix each of these issues to help you improve your movement quality✅ . 1️⃣Ankle Mobility: this could include banded joint mobilizations, foam rolling the calf muscles and stretches 2️⃣Foot Stability: jamming your big toe into the ground can help limit any rotation & solidify your foot position. 3️⃣Hip Mobility: limited hip internal rotation will cause your hip to spin off into the position of least resistance (external rotation) which spins your foot to the side. The W stretch can be a great stretch to improve this mobility . Check out the video linked in my bio for a full description of these other exercises not shown & how you can test to find which areas YOU need to focus on! _________________________________ Squat University is the ultimate guide to realizing the strength to which the body is capable of.

If you guys remember my recent series on ITBS, you know that IT band pain is caused by compression of the band against a highly innervated (lots of nerves) piece of fat that covers the lateral femur. And I said that foam rolling DIRECTLY OVER the site of pain only brings out MORE compression & leads to ⬆️ pain ❌. . But one question came up a lot...Should we foam roll at all?!? 🤔 . When we were going through school, we had an anatomy lab where we dissected cadavers and physically cut into the IT Band. Let me tell you, it is an extremely thick piece of tissue. For this reason, deep tissue work like foam rolling isn’t likely to make a ton of a change in tension. However, the IT Band also has fascial connections to many other muscles of the lower leg (which are like a spider web of connective tissue that encapsulates and connect all of the muscles of your body). When foam rolling your lateral leg, you’re not only hitting your IT Band. You’re also rolling over tissues that connect to the IT Band such as the Vastus Lateralis (lateral quad), Biceps Femoris (lateral hamstrings), Glutes and TFL. . Restrictions in these muscles can contribute to excessive tension on the IT Band. Trigger points in these muscles can even refer pain to the lateral part of the knee, mimicking the exact symptoms of IT Band Syndrome. For this reason, foam rolling the lateral thigh to address restrictions in these connections can be extremely beneficial at decreasing lateral knee pain - just stay on those muscles and don't roll over the exact site of pain! ✅ . For lasting results, it takes a comprehensive plan of deep tissue work to remove stiffness AND strength-coordination work to address WHY the problem started (This means addressing the hips)! 🏋🏽 .

stiffness: SQUAT DO YOU STRUGGLE WITH A HIGH ELBOW RACK POSITION? Latissimus Dorsi Levator Scapulae Serratus Posterior A Superior If you struggle to get your elbows up into a good position for your front squats & cleans, it may be due to stiffness in your lat muscles (the big darker red muscles shown bottom left) 👆🏼 . One of my favorite band assisted stretches to help mobilize into a good position is the topic of today's post. Grab a band with your palm facing the sky. Twist into the position shown & drive your elbow up as the band helps pull your hand down behind you back. You can also use your opposite free hand to push into a greater stretch (felt in your upper lateral back & the underside of your arm). Hold for 10 seconds & try 5 before re-checking your rack position to see if this is the right mobility tool for your body ✅ .

If you struggle to get your elbows up into a good position for your front squats & cleans, it may be due to stiffness in your lat muscles (the big darker red muscles shown bottom left) 👆🏼 . One of my favorite band assisted stretches to help mobilize into a good position is the topic of today's post. Grab a band with your palm facing the sky. Twist into the position shown & drive your elbow up as the band helps pull your hand down behind you back. You can also use your opposite free hand to push into a greater stretch (felt in your upper lateral back & the underside of your arm). Hold for 10 seconds & try 5 before re-checking your rack position to see if this is the right mobility tool for your body ✅ .

If you have pain on the front-lateral part of your shoulder with the test (shown upper left), your pain may be due to this type of problem👊🏻 . This problem in athletes can be due to poor posture, lack of dynamic stability (coordination) or muscle imbalances (rotator cuff weakness). This causes the humerus (arm bone) to rotate off its center axis & push into different tissues, leading to eventual pain ❌ . The banded exercises shown below (called the upper extremity matrix at @boostsportskc) is a great exercise to help restore this strength & coordination. Perform 2 sets of 10 movements up, out and down as shown. Let your arm move back to the start position SLOWLY. This will lead to a good fatigue in the outside of the shoulder✅ & should NOT cause pain❌ . If this does not help decrease pain, also look at shoulder blade (scapula) positioning & thoracic spine mobility as movement problems-stiffness in both can lead to impingements as well . As always, these corrective exercises are to help with minor aches & pains that occur during barbell training. If you have a serious injury or have been dealing with pain for a long time, I always recommend going to get checked out by a medical practitioner. _________________________________ Squat University is the ultimate guide to realizing the strength to which the body is capable of.

stiffness: Ankle mobility plays a huge role in your overhead squat & snatch technique! Good ankle mobility Poor ankle mobility Stiff ankles are one of the most common weak links I find in athletes. This issue will cause problems for the entire movement pattern of the squat. Let's take for example the overhead squat. This lift (just like the snatch) requires a fairly upright torso position. The more upright our torso must be during a squat - the more ankle mobility we require in order to stay balanced & move efficiently. The squat on the right is demonstrating how limited ankle mobility can affect this lift. In an effort to stay balanced, the chest will have to incline forward. In order to continue squatting down, the bar must be pushed even further back behind the neck or else the weights will surely come crashing down in front. The left video is showing an example of adequate ankle mobility. Because the knee is able to move forward past the toes at the bottom of the squat, the chest can remain more upright and the bar remains balanced. ---------------- Squat University is the ultimate guide to realizing the strength to which the body is capable of.

stiffness: 3 hrs If You See These White Stripes on Chicken, There's 1 Thing You Need to Know Before Buying conservativetribune.com Chicken is often seen as a healthier alternative to red meat, but depending on the wholesomeness of the chicken, that might not be true. Certain visual cues could be a warning. Compassion in World Farming released a video on YouTube aiming to educate the public about “white stripes” they may see in raw chicken. According to the organization, pieces of chicken that have stripes of white fat running through the meat could be not only bad, but dangerous to consume. The white stripes are the result of the bird being raised in conditions that are not healthy. CWF reported that new studies show that many chickens raised in factory-like farms develop muscle tissue disorders, which occur because the chickens are genetically modified to grow faster. As a result, they grow too big too fast. Two of the most frequent disorders seen because of these conditions are “woody breast” and “white striping,” the organization said. These conditions “seriously impact” the quality of meat, which could result in more fat, less protein and a tough texture. Woody breast, like white striping, is related to abnormal muscle development and causes an abnormally stiff texture, according to Poultry Hub. “White striping” looks like you’d expect it to. Take a look at the video Compassion in World Farming released: Truly lean chicken won’t have any of the white stripes, the U.K. Independent reported. Generally, fat can be seen running along the sides of the slice of meat but not through the center. A study published last year in the Italian Journal of Animal Science concluded that “the severity of white striping has increased in recent years” and found it present in 96 per cent of the 285 birds they tested, according to the Independent. A study conducted in 2013 revealed that chicken breasts with white stripes can contain up to 224 percent more fat than normal ones. Compassion in World Farming suggested that better treatment of chickens, including healthier genetics and improved environments that encourage natural behavior, would limit these conditions. The Independent reported that a spokesman for the National Chicken Council said white striping affects a “small percentage of chicken meat” and

Step 3 Step 2 Step I Prime The Deep Squat Foam Roll The Quads Stretch Do your knees sound like popcorn in the microwave when you squat?! This 'cracking' noise is often caused by stiffness in our body. Try this simple progression & see if it helps. 1st, foam roll the quads for 2 minutes (searching out stiff spots in the muscle). You want to be a mean massage therapist to yourself so don't stray away from spots that hurt a bit! This will help improve your soft tissue pliability without any decreases in performance!! 2nd, lightly stretch the quads. The couch stretch (shown middle) is a great way to do this. Hold a stretch for 10 seconds & do 3 rounds on each side prior to your next workout. This short duration stretch will decrease stiffness in the muscles without a decrease in power production for your workout. 3rd, mobilize into a position you'll then be using in your workout. I love the goblet squat stretch. Take a kettle bell or a plate & sit into a deep squat (shoes off or flat sole shoe is preferred). Hold this for 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Then re-rest your squat and see how it feels! If your 'cracking' continues, is accompanied with pain, I recommend getting screened by a sports physical therapist as this may be an issue that requires a more individual approach to fixing! --------------- Squat University is the ultimate guide to realizing the strength to which the body is capable of.

stiffness: 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. ✌🏼💙🦇🎉
