Wish I had taken a picture a year ago when I needed to modify with 2 fists stacked on the ground. squatshipmobilitysquatroutineprogressmovementbjjjiujitsuwarmupnogihttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/21295023_1897387500588043_6681725272867209216_n.jpg2017-09-01

Not sure if anyone had asked you that today as of yet, but, here we are.
Looks like something about prioritizing stability over a greater range of motion in order to feel where and how our body will try and make shit easier for us, by doing stuff like leaning or twisting.
There's probably something in there about connecting the ankles/feet to the rest of the body too, if I know this guy half as well as I think I do.
Anyway, there will be a YouTubes instructional up about this later today on the Jim Romig channel. So, be a doll and give it a peep, yeah?
Most certainly feel that any MMA, striking, Jits, and grappling folk who want more open and controlled hips will get a hoot out of this one 😉
http://instatbt.com/Place/balance-point-fitness---athletics/285968311Balance Point Fitness & AthleticsWhile working down one side of the body then the other, all from down dog, how well can you replace your points of contact with the earth (hands and feet) right back where they were?
As time goes along, has your base shifted a bit?
It's a fun thing worth taking note of.
Speaking of your base, what parts of your hands and feet are holding the load? Are they just "resting on the ground" or are they driving that shit away?
Also worth noting.
Anyway, here's the complex-
-Left side sit
-Left piss dog
-Right side sit
-Right piss dog
That's one rep, and it took just about a minute.
Use 1-5 reps as a warm up/reset, or go up to 10+ reps for a full on routine. As always, start slow and feel free to speed up as much as your body will safely allow.
Speaking of speed, when going slow, wherever your body naturally speeds up, it's probably hiding something. Take some time to feel out what may he hiding before moving too much further 😉

For all the BJJ practitioners out there that have ever sustained a joint injury during training, then I highly recommend adding controlled articular rotations (CAR's) into your training/rehab immediately after the injury occurs.
CAR's- take any joint through it's articulation building on the ROM and intensity as the injury begins to reduce inflammation. Movement in general is an amazing anti inflammatory tool. CAR's are just that. Movement in a proper manner to decrease inflammation, increase blood flow for nutrient transportation and also, can start laying down new healthy tissue in a properly directed manner.
I recently injured the medial portion of my right elbow through hyper extension, which left me some loss in ROM with elbow extension. I immediately started CAR's on it and I do as many reps throughout the day to constantly communicate to the cells to lay down new healthy tissue in the direction of the proper articulation. I have almost got my full ROM back within a couple days of the injury and I will start with some PAIL's level one tomorrow. I hope this helps some of you out there have have those pesky joint issues, and hopefully this can get you back to training a little sooner.

Here's another variation of the free-flow that I was doing before bjj the other day. Tons of fun.
