Frances • I run Pain & Injury clinic sessions for Movementum. I’m an Anatomy in Motion practitioner and use this assessment method to get to the root cause of your pain (which doesn’t have to be anywhere near the actual site of pain).
•
The goal is to reintroduce missing movement back into the walking cycle through corrective exercises. This acts on both a physical and neurological level, allowing the body to access areas it had forgotten it could use (this is known as ‘neuroplasticity’ or ‘plastic reorganisation’).
•
If you have pain no one else has been able to help with DM me or visit our website for more info (link in bio).

LAUNCH OFFER | To celebrate the launch of Movementum, any Pain & Injury or Natural Movement sessions booked on or before Oct 26th are 20% off. Quote the code LAUNCH20 when booking in and visit movementum.co.uk to redeem.

Although I often talk about the benefits of natural movement, I have recently found myself doing handstands on increasingly high and awkward places, and however much I love handstands, they aren’t exactly natural movements, even if I am barefoot.

But just because it isn’t natural doesn’t mean it isn’t good for you. For starters, I really enjoy doing handstands, and as long as they aren’t harming me, I see no reason to stop doing them.

Secondly, I use them to challenge myself, and to help me learn to control my fear, with the potential danger of falling off a high wobbly tree head first, but knowing I was capable of it I didn’t let fear get the better of me and achieved my goal. In the end, do what you enjoy, natural or unnatural, just try to have a balance between the two.

Not a cartwheel, cartwheel, not a cartwheel.🤷‍♂️🤸‍♂️🤷‍♂️ Relaxed day in the park making up new silly moves (yes I’m sure someone’s probably done it before, and it already has a name, but it’s new to me).

Sometimes things don’t go to plan (don’t ask what the plan was supposed to be), but work out making a great, if weird picture.

After the casting yesterday I was feeling pretty tired so I decided to take it easy, but that doesn’t mean doing nothing.
So I decided to try and challenge myself without any high impact or high strength moves, and this is what I came up with 😁what do you think? .

Haven’t posted for a while, having a bit of a weird month. I went to a casting for a commercial today, so I felt as though I should post something 😅 so here’s a gate vault in a strange, sad, neglected park in Liverpool. Expect more content soon.

It’s you last chance to catch The Boulderers this year, if you’ve got time come down to Peace Gardens in Sheffield at 5:30 to see us perform.

I was very happy with this handstand press from the floor, and back down to croc, but that’s not what this post is about.
Watch to the end and you’ll see me roll my ankle pretty badly, and yet I’m not injured at all.
This is because I train in what is called the ‘dark zone’ a term coined by @garyward_aim.
We’ve all heard the term ‘knee over toe’ and most people I know use high ankle hiking boots to stabilise their ankles and feet while hiking.
But these ideas can actually cause more harm than good, because in the real world these ideals cannot be maintained, and your knees, feet and ankles can end up in all kinds of crazy positions.
So instead of only allowing them to move in one direction, try putting them outside their comfort zone let them experience what it’s like to be in different positions so that when it happens unexpectedly, your body is ready.
If you are interested in seeing some of the ways I let my knees, ankles, feet, and the rest of my body experience movements outside their comfort zone in a safe way then I will make a post about it in the next few days 👍👍👍

After a long and tiring rehearsal today, preparing for our performance of The Boulderers at the Barnsley Mayors parade this Saturday, I decided I needed to go for a walk.
And what better place to walk than in the Peak District, walking through a river after a tiring day is definitely a great way to feel refreshed 👍

I love swinging, but for me lachés have always been scary.
But slowly and steadily I’ve been forcing myself to face my fears, progressively building up to bigger and bigger gaps.
Today I completed this laché challenge that I had been eyeing up for a while, and while it’s not the biggest in the world, I was happy with it, and finally feel comfortable to call myself ‘competent’ at lachés 😜

I wasn’t planning on doing a flag on this tree, in fact I didn’t even think I could, but while trying to do something else entirely I found myself in this position and could hold it pretty easily.
Lesson to be learned, don’t discount something as impossible until you’ve tried it.

This crazy drill is the start of learning straight back full twist, it looks terrifying but it isn’t actually that bad.
You can see on the second clip that just as I’m about to hit the mat I tuck in my left shoulder and rotate 180°.
Last day tomorrow so time to get some things cleaned up and ready to use outside of the gym 😄

In natural movement I wouldn’t ever recommend jumping or landing with straight legs, but in tumbling it’s what you do. My brain hasn’t got the memo yet.

Back on the @acrobaticschool tumbling course, and day one went great, but all I filmed were 4 really terrible back flicks in a row. But 4 flicks is still 4 flicks, even if they weren’t great, I’ll clean them up as the week goes and learn some other new tricks on the way 😁
