Flexibility is one of the ten general physical skills. Is it your weakness? Do you have trouble achieving a full depth squat? Do you ever watch trainers or other athletes demonstrate a movement and think “My body just doesn’t move like that.” It can, and we want to show you how. Achieving full, natural range of motion among all your body’s components is also a critical part of performance. Building strength and stamina can get you far, but not very far if your body is unconsciously applying the brakes every time you move through limited joints and connective tissue.
On Saturday, June 19th, from 8 AM to 12 PM, Jay Schug will conduct a clinic at CrossFit Impulse on restoring mobility through a postural restoration approach. Jay will begin by educating you on the concept of postural restoration and returning the body to a neutral position. He will cover basic anatomy, common problems, and solutions. Additionally, each student will get some 1-on-1 time with Jay. He will evaluate your ranges of motion, deduce problems, and prescribe specific corrective exercises. If you’re interested in applying force over a larger range of motion and remedying chronic soreness and trouble-spots, then this clinic is for you. Check out the video below to get an idea of how Jay can diagnose and correct postural problems.
Jay has been a licensed physical therapist assistant for 12 years, working for the past 8 years at the Spine and Neuro Center for physical therapy. For the past 2 years he has been continuing his education through the Postural Restoration Institute, which he describes as “the missing link in his clinical experiences and practice as a physical therapist assistant.” Jay is also a level 1 certified CrossFit trainer. These qualifications give him a unique perspective to understand the demands we place upon our bodies, predict common problems, and apply corrective techniques.This information from the Postural Restoration Institute can help you understand the postural restoration approach.
The human body is not symmetrical. The neurological, respiratory, circulatory, muscular and vision systems are not the same on the left side of the body as they are on the right, and vice versa. They have different responsibilities, function, position and demands on them. When these normal imbalances are not regulated by reciprocal function during walking, breathing or turning, a strong pattern emerges creating structural weaknesses, instabilities, and musculo-skeletal pain syndromes. Balancing muscle activity around the sacrum (pelvis), the sternum (thorax) and the sphenoid (middle of the head) through a PRI approach best positions multiple systems of the human body for appropriate integrated asymmetrical function.
The cost of the clinic is $50 per student. Clinic is open to anyone and everyone, not just CrossFit Impulse athletes. Age and physical condition are irrelevant. Anyone can benefit from increased mobility. Attendance is limited to the first 15 students to register. Register by clicking the below button and paying via PayPal. If and when the clinic sells out we will remove the “Buy Now” button below, so if the button is still below, then you can still register! We look forward to seeing you there.

I really hope everyone can make it out for this one. You are going to be amazed at how much your body is out of wack!! Best part is, Jay will show you how to fix it.
Looking forward to this. Afraid what I will find out about my mobility.
Will there be a class on Saturday morning at all?
I know the usual time for class is 9am.
This will replace the Saturday morning class.
I would love to attend but we have company coming in for the weekend. Any chance the highlights can be videotaped?
Just a thought…
The nature of a paid clinic makes it difficult to wrestle with the idea of videotaping. I don’t know how to make that fair for all those who are paying to attend. The length would also be prohibitive, and editing video takes a lot of time. I’d say the summary video above is very indicative of the material that will be presented. The good news is that this won’t be the last clinic Jay offers. He’ll be doing more clinics on this and more topics. Hope you can understand my position.
Hope everyone is excited about this clinic. I saw some more of the things Jay is going to be doing and its pretty amazing. After you correct some of the things that he points out, you can look forward to your strength numbers and your metcon times potentially drastically increasing. He showed me how I wasn’t driving up evenly with both legs on my squats and deadlift. I was favoring my right leg due to my body being totally out of “neutral”, which has caused my left hamstring to be under developed compared to the right one. I’m looking forward to some new PR’s thanks to the stuff Jay will be sharing at this clinic. Everyone that is interested in maximizing their potential needs to register. You will be blown away with what you learn about your body.
