Let’s talk 𝐋𝐀𝐍𝐃𝐈𝐍𝐆 𝐌𝐄𝐂𝐇𝐀𝐍𝐈𝐂𝐒! 🤔 ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ There are two major aspects of injury prevention...body awareness/mechanics and strength. The alignment of the body when we jump and land can tell us a lot!⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 1️⃣ Knee Collapse: often a sign of weak hip muscles, in particular the gluteus medius (glut med ) which is responsible for stabilizing the hips and controlling the knee from caving inward. However, also a sign of poor motor control to keep the knee pointing forward during dynamic activity. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 2️⃣ Foot rolling inward (over-pronation ): indicates weakness of intrinsic foot muscles that help promote a stable arch and provide a base of support for stabilizing your whole body. When the arch muscles are weak the foot is flat and tends to roll inward, triggering a chain reaction of the knee also collapsing inward. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ These compensations during movement often result in increased stress on the knees during jumping/landing and change in direction movements. If not addressed, injuries can occur. 😳⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ✅ So how do we fix these movement faults? I’m offering FREE video movement analysis 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘸𝘦𝘦𝘬 𝘰𝘯𝘭𝘺 & I will create a customized plan to help you move safer, more efficiently, and improve your athletic performance! 👉If you want in on a free movement analysis assessment comment “𝐈’𝐦 𝐢𝐧!” below & I’ll message you the details!
🚨 Do your players have weak ankles? Do they continue to roll and sprain them all the time? 🚨 They need to do 𝐁𝐀𝐒𝐊𝐄𝐓𝐁𝐀𝐋𝐋 𝐒𝐏𝐄𝐂𝐈𝐅𝐈𝐂 ankle strengthening. 🏀 You won’t find these exercises by just googling “ankle strengthening exercises”.

It was sooooo great to be back on the field photographing football. I've missed this sport the most. Thanks to everyone working the game for everything they did to keep the fans and staff safe. It certainly has a different feel right now. ECU vs Navy last Saturday, shot for AP Images.

It’s #womencrushwednesday and it’s time to introduce another player! Abi is an absolute beast on the line and is going in to her 5th year playing with us 🏈💪🏻 Here’s what Abi had to say on #whyweplay “I had started following the nfl in my first year of uni and was drawn in by the the contact aspect of the sport. I'd played soccer for 10 years and wanted to try something different. I like the comradery, team culture and inclusively of all sizes and body types. I enjoy the protective aspect of the game and getting to hit people which is why i chose to play oline 💪” #womenstacklefootball #nflwomen #thisgirlcan #wcw #womencrushwednesday #nfl #portsmouth #active #athlete

Spiderweb Building 🕸 This is one of our favorite October activities. Just a simple festive tweak on a classic kid craft! Grab your toothpicks and mini marshmallows for a fun and easy invitation to build (and eat ) a spiderweb! . . . We got out our supplies this afternoon and made some spooky spiderwebs and then threw our spider rings on before eating them after dinner. My 4.5 yr old made these pictured webs last year completely by herself and my then 3 yr old was super engaged in his own style of spiderweb designing (which included A LOT of tasting ). I made a web too, but mostly I just got to sit back and eat one million marshmallows, so this is a winning activity in my book! Tag me if you try this one! I want to see your creations! 🕷
Spider Rescue🕷 I don’t know about you, but my kids are OBSESSED with tape. My two littlest spent a full 45 mins putting tape on my mom’s shoe the other day😂. My 2 year old is especially happy to rip tape off of just about anything so I knew this #simplesetup would be a big hit🕸 . . . I made this spiderweb with my beloved @bamtape but you could use any painters tape, washi tape or masking tape. Tape on the wall, window, mirror or even a high chair and then have your kiddos pull, tear rip and rescue the spider rings! (Or other small objects ). I made this first one way too easy- my next web you could barely see the spiders and they had to work a little harder. They don’t even need to know how awesome this is for finger/hand strength and fine motor skills 🤫
Got to respect this 💪🏽💪🏽 - Follow @bballclan for more!
~What’s your Why~ Wednesday✨ This week we asked our lovely teammate & treasurer, Keara, what her “why” is & here is her amazing response: “Ever since I was very young, I LOVED everything about dance. When I joined SDF, I immediately felt such a close bond and trust with all of my fellow teammates. They truly feel like family. These women push me to do better everyday and I am so grateful for all of them. They are the reason why dance continues to be something I enjoy doing no matter what. 🤍” #WhyWePlay #WhyWeDance @fsusportclubs
