Looking for a way to spend your snow day? We're open! We're keeping an eye on the weather and we'll update you about any afternoon closures and the Torpedo Talk tonight at 7 pm.
Apologies folks 🙏🏽. I haven’t posted on this page in awhile 😐. I recently mentioned that I have a hiked hip on my left side 🤦🏻♂️. How can you tell which side needs more Glute medius work? Test with a partial single leg squat- the side that collapses in (meaning your knee), is the side that needs more Glute medius work 🍑👍🏽🔥. Please understand, this is a general statement. Other issues may be at play. But in general, strengthen the Glute medius on that same side, along with the Glute max 😎. Here is a simple drill performed by my Client Morgan (@mehfoley) 👏🏽. After releasing the QL and adductors on the left side, along with the Rectus femoris and hip flexors (just think quad) with lacrosse balls and rollers, we stretch the hip flexor on that same side (she’s MUCH tighter on her left than right), we perform this ☝🏽. She uses the wall as the “floor.” What I mean is this- she lays flat against the wall as she is laying flat on the ground. Back of the head down to her top heel is FLAT. Core is engaged and pelvis tucked to flat back. She’s making sure the working side knee stays neutral- pointed right at the camera and even slightly internally rotated to ensure that she does not externally rotate the femur on the way up 🤙🏽. As she points the toes slightly to the floor, she is also driving the heel against the wall before even coming up. Now we have Glute max activation 🍑🔛. Once that is properly achieved, still driving the heel into the wall, she raises the entire leg as high as possible, feeling strong contraction in both her Glute medius and Glute Maximus 👍🏽. It’s extremely important to not allow any other additional movement from anywhere else- no hip rotation, no bending to the side, this activating the obliques. We want to ISOLATE at the hip joint. The knee will want to rotate up, along with the toes. The top hip will want to open up to the ceiling. You’ll want to side crunch up in order to assist. DON’T allow any of these things to happen 🙏🏽🚫. Stay static and ONLY move the top leg, brace with the top hand either on the floor (as shown) or top hand pushing against the bent bottom knee. I know, it’s ALOT! But details matter ✅. They ALWAYS do 👍

We're you, too, caught by surprise with the amount of precipitation we got?
This was the scene along Rt. 50 in Falls Church this morning. Hardly a Fall-like scene.
That said, the weekend looks fabulous, and we couldn't be more excited to host our guests at #Turkeypalooza this weekend.
Try to enjoy the weather and @fairfaxcountypublicschools' first snow day of the year. Sunshine and warmer weather is in the forecast.
Why, yes. Yes, it is. .
I swiped this beautiful view from one of my favorite tiny house makers’ stories. Tiny house + tool organization = 😍 I’m in LOVE. It doesn’t get much better in my book. .
Also, you should check out their pics. Their houses are so beautiful! Sleek, clean, spacious (I mean, relative to other tiny houses). 🤤 📷 @minimaliste.tinyhouses
