Corrective Exercise: Anterior-posterior counter stretch w/ stability ball.

At first glance, this exercise may look like the traditional ‘lat stretch on stability ball’ exercise. But make no mistake, this ‘Level B’ exercise is vastly differently than the aforementioned lat stretch – and profoundly effective in influencing frontal & transverse plane spinal alignment.

From Consultation to Program Design: The Function First Approach Overview

So what exactly is involved in a client’s first appointment?

- How long is your first appointment with a new client?
- Does the client consult & their movement assessments happen in the same session?
- When do you create your clients’ corrective program? Right after their assessments or after the session is over?
- When do you do re-assess their movement?

These are some of the most common questions we get asked. Kevin boils it down into his best 2 min & 52 second synopsis…

Wouldn't it be awesome if there was a specific recipe we could follow when programming clients?

Self Myofascial Release on the Lower Back

For as long as foam rolling has been around, it still seems that people are doing 90% of the same areas of the body and with the same moves. Having had the good fortune to speak on many of the facets around the myofascial component, I’ve both seen and explored many interventions directed toward myofascial mobility. Since most people have or have access to a foam roller, I’d like to share this very effective application for the lower back that you may have never tried.

When I have participants experience this self-myofascial release application at a presentation, the “oohs” and “ahhs” fill the room. That’s because they are exploring a stimulus to this tissue that is brand new to them.

This particular application does have some nuances and precautions, so be sure to watch the entire video.

Corrective Exercise - Static Wall + Rotations

Corrective Exercise - Static Wall + Rotations

- "I'd like to disassociate from you."

- "We're great together, but we have to have some independence."


This might be a conversation you'd hear between the pelvis and femur. And that is why we are sharing with you one of our corrective exercises directly from the Function First Academy site that helps with just this outcome.

What at first glance looks mostly like a hamstring stretch, it actually does so much more. This exercise takes advantage of gravity acting on the pelvis and upper body, allowing relaxation of the posterior muscles from the lower back and up. This frees up the hip musculature to produce some needed motion in the transverse plane.

In this video, you'll see the key points as the exercise is broken down in its:

In this quick hitter, Anthony highlights the multiple factors involved when clients experience pain, and how they all need to considered before designing a corrective exercise strategy.
