Elevator Analogy: Bring me to the 10th floor from the LOBBY.

training outcomes Apr 26, 2020

Bring me to the 10th floor from the LOBBY.

In reference to full range of motion at a joint; It’s okay if you start in the lobby and ask for ten floors then return back to the lobby, but what happens if you start on the 5th floor?

This is an analogy for consequences.

  • There is a difference between externally rotated which implies orientation (stuck on 5th floor) vs externally rotating which implies ability to move through a range of motion (move ten floors)
  • If you don’t consider axial skeleton and pelvis position you may be pushing past the tenth floor which may come at a cost
  • Some people may benefit more from a trip to the lobby instead of continuing to push the tenth floor: this can also be used in reference to high level athletic performance/explosive extension
  • Don’t be surprised when consequences manifest
