I have come back to this many times. It is a wonderful overview. I have done many projects and this has inspired new ideas as well. It is very helpful from understanding basic animations to more complex ideas. I loved motion5 before finding ripple-training but this has helped me fall in love with it all the more.
When I installed motion a couple of weeks ago, I had no clue what the application was meant to do other than that is was a useful add-on to Final Cut Pro X. So this training took me from zero to a point where I can experiment and play around on my own in just a few lessons. Mark obviously knows what he is talking about, and he is also able to explain it in a way that is clear and easy to follow. I really enjoyed this course!
For the first time, Torrentcreek would meet Finchsong at the border as a deputy, Torrentcreek would not reveal his deputy status. He didn't want the Thunderclan tom to know too much about him- or to see his life as potentially worthy of taking. However, their skirmish was rudely interrupted. Finchsong had Torrentcreek pinned to the forest floor, whereas Torrentcreek had shot his head up, clamping his iron-jaw down on the Thunderclan cat's neck and refusing to be shaken free- that was, until a strange cat tacked Finchsong and the pair tumbled down a near-by hill: Torrentcreek having been whipped away by the sudden motion. The deputy sat quietly at the top of the hill, keenly observing the unraveling argument below. He had hoped Finchsong to simply kill the she-cat when they had revealed their name to be Vesta, a kittypet, as killing them would cease their possible future interuptions- but when Finchsong responded to Vesta, introducing himself as Finchstar, Torrentcreek's jaw gaped. As the argument heated and the knowledge settled into Torrentcreek's mind, he found himself scrambling down the hill to defend Finchstar, claiming that he and his mentor had just been training and insisting the she-cat leave. After many words from Vesta and Finchstar, the stuck-up kittypet left. It was at this moment that Torrentcreek noticed outsiders were the worst breed of cat- for sure.
These gymnasts were born this way. This is usually why they were noticed as a good candidate for competitive gymnastics, as they naturally had full splits and bridges. Like in the shoulder, natural mobility of the hip allows them to move through a greater motion. As mentioned we have to be cautious not to overtax their already hypermobile hip capsules and ligaments during flexibility training.
I think that by using correct stretching consistently over time (not into excessive pain or passive tissue damage) combined with strength in full range of motion. eccentrics, or skill training, is mainly what causes changes in the muscle tissue itself.
Through their chapters, the researchers outline that flexibility training must be viewed in a broader context outside of only aiming to increase joint range of motion. They explain that the short-term effects often seen from stretching must be supported by other qualities of athleticism. They accurately outline that areas like muscular strength and joint control must be trained in parallel with stretching.
However, more recent research has supported the idea that foam rolling and properly designed dynamic warm-ups prior to training appear to have no significant negative effects on performance, may enhance it, and also positively impact the range of motion in various muscle groups (49-50). From looking at self- myofascial release and manual therapy literature reviews, this is thought to be through changes in perceived soreness, neurological relaxation, and possibly blood flow / water content shifting within the muscle.
Many of the gymnasts I coach or treat for injuries report that light, soft tissue work makes them feel more warmed up and helps to reduce perceived muscle soreness. They also claim it helps following hard workouts or on light training days to recover. Many also claim that it helps them move in a larger range of motion with less discomfort before starting their practice. A few very inflexible gymnasts that I have worked with also displayed improvements in hip or shoulder range of motion over time when they used soft tissue work combined with proper stretching/strength programs.
In my mind, the warm-up should not really be the main time we are looking to make massive changes in flexibility. Warm-ups are typically best looked at as a time when you can prepare the available joint range of motion that a gymnast has. There are usually large groups of people warming up, a limited amount of space, and a limited amount of time. Also, you must remember that immediately following the warm-up genetically go to an event has very high forces. We do not want to excessively relax the muscular tissue and increase lots of joint motion before we then subject them to extremely high forces. For that reason, I typically approach the warm-up is getting the body ready for the training session.
The traditional model of gymnastics typically involves twenty to thirty-minute time periods where static stretches are held, active flexibility drills are done, or specific exercises are repeatedly done in high volume to gain range of motion. I did this for a decade as a gymnast, and for the first five years I was coaching. Knowing what I do now from all of the above research, I have mostly moved away from this approach of only using stretching to improve flexibility. This is true both in training and in our medical clinic. 2b1af7f3a8
