Jeremy Fein   Why Butterback? You need to move your back in so many ways, whether in athletic movement like throwing and kicking or daily activities like tying your shoes. But it’s easy to feel stiff throughout the torso.  And many [totally great!] traditional strength exercises have us moving the arms and legs alot, but […]

Us Players Lebron James (r) And Dwyane W

Jeremy Fein   Last Friday, I hurt my knee. I’ll get into the details down below, but let’s start with the actionable stuff. P.E.A.C.E. AND L.O.V.E. Have you heard of “RICE” after getting hurt? As it turns out, not all of it is based in the research we have. A more modern, although still less […]

Clarity in Goal Setting

Goal1

Jeremy Fein Four questions that outline your problem and potential solution: 1) What is your goal? In the clearest possible terms. 2) Why is it important to you? 3) What obstacles might get in your way? 4) What can you do now to set yourself up for success?   Defining Your Terms: A lot of people set New Years Resolutions like “be […]

Assessing Breathing

Jer

Jeremy Fein     The third test is Patrick McKeown’s BOLT score (Body Oxygen Level Test), adapted from Buteyko’s ‘Control Pause’ carbon dioxide measure. According to McKeown, it “should be” in the 40s. Most people, even elite athletes tend to be around 20s. Below 20s, he says people will have some sort of breathing-related symptoms.  […]

Finding Your Fundamentals

Jeremy2

Jeremy Fein   “Don’t worry about the fundamentals–skip right ahead to the fancy stuff to save time.”   Probably a quote you’ve never heard from an athlete or a coach. We all seem to agree that the fundamentals are important, but why isn’t there more talk about what they are? At various times, I’ve been […]

Assess Hard, Treat Soft

He needs enough force to initially see how the body responds, but ultimately it’s the soft touch that drives his predictably positive outcomes.   For me–the […]

Jeremy Fein   I’m not going to hide the lesson later in the article to make you read the whole thing. Here you go:   Listen carefully and educate sincerely. Geek out subtly.   In my coaching, I’m not qualified to diagnose people. But the critical thinking that goes into the puzzles of helping people […]

An Apple A Day?

Good Wiil

Jeremy Fein   If you listen to the loudest voices and the wittiest memes in the fitness world, you’ll very quickly find out that there are things you’re supposed to be doing every day. Sit in a squat, walk a certain distance, move every joint through its range, hang from something…#EveryDamnDay. Ultimately, if you listened […]

Learning the Impossible

Jeremy Feature

Jeremy Fein   If you were to walk into a juggling festival in the 90s…okay, wait. There is such thing as a juggling festival. And if you stumbled into one in 1995, you’d likely spot a crowd of people gathering around a juggler defying gravity to keep 5 clubs in the air. Fast forward to […]

A Weekend with Z Health, by Jeremy Fein I got glasses when I was 3, and started wearing them when I was 4. With two parents and two older sisters all wearing glasses, growing up to be called “four eyes” was a foregone conclusion. I have gotten so used to wearing them that when I […]
