TankGym Kettlebell Rehab Handouts- Toe Touch Progression & Breathing

Yesterday we posted handouts for the Dead Lift. For clients having a difficult time  reaching their toes with proper technique we may have to start at a lower fundamental level. The Toe Touch Progression is one technique that can help facilitate learning that movement pattern.

For those clients that are still having a difficult time we may need to pay closer attention to how the movement is initiated and what compensatory strategies they are relying on. Often normal breathing patterns are altered when the neuro-muscular system is under stress. Diaphragmatic Breathing can be an important exercise to help individuals understand and feel what changes occur as they transition from one posture to another.
