ATHLETE SURVEY

 

For anyone that has come from an athletic background, or at least half a brain knows or can figure out what R.I.C.E stands for. Well, recently on the MOBILITYWOD.COM Kelly Starret put up a very interesting and very controversial video debating whether or not we have been doing it all wrong. This is pretty revolutionary stuff and to be honest, above my brain capacity to have a very strong opinion for or against this. I do know pretty well how the body works (played a lot of OPERATION as a kid….so what I didn’t have a lot of friends). I also know that Starret is the GURU when it comes to how the body moves so all I’m saying there is a reason why he has this 30min. video up on his blog. EVERYBODY NEEDS TO WATCH THIS. Take the time and do yourself a favor.  I am not taking sides whether this is right or wrong it just offers some insight to one side of the story. comment to the blog about this video. I would like to know your thoughts/reactions/objections/support for this blog. Enjoy
