How to help your clients deal with this sensitive (and annoying) issue…

We are talking about constipation.

by Katie Ferraro (source: https://www.acefitness.org/blog/6128/why-your-diet-is-causing-constipation)

It’s not a topic you probably want to talk about, but if you are constipated, making healthy changes to your diet and lifestyle can help get things moving again.

IDENTIFYING THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM

Constipation is generally defined as having fewer than three bowel movements per week. While it can be caused by something serious such as a bowel obstruction or colon or rectal cancer, other conditions such as diabetes, thyroid disorders and pregnancy can also cause constipation.

Some of the primary risk factors for and causes of constipation include:

  • Age (older adults are more likely to suffer from constipation)
  • Dehydration
  • Low-fiber diet
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Certain medications such as sedatives, narcotics or certain blood pressure-lowering drugs

FIBER AND FLUID FOR THE WIN

Fiber and Fluid for the Win

Making lifestyle changes such as eating more fiber, drinking more water and moving more can help alleviate constipation. Most people should start with these three recommendations before seeking other interventions.

When it comes to fiber, aim to eat 25-35 grams per day. The typical American consumes about 12-15 grams of fiber per day, so most of us would benefit from more roughage in our diets. Go slow as you consume more fiber, adding a few more grams per day into your meal plan.

Here are some tips for eating more fiber:

  • Choose brown instead of white rice.
  • Add dried or canned beans to salads, soups and casseroles.
  • Swap juice and canned fruits and vegetables for fresh ones with the skins left on.
  • Bake with whole-wheat flour or other whole grains.
  • Look for the words 100% whole wheat, rye, oats or bran as the first or second ingredient in your bread foods.

When you increase your fiber, you also need to increase your water intake. Aim to drink at least eight cups per day, but you may need more with additional fiber intake. Fluid allows your body to process all of that fiber without gastrointestinal discomfort.

THE 3-2-1 RULE

For people complaining of constipation, the 3-2-1 rule can help. Each day aim to eat three pieces of fruit, drink 2 liters of water and include one serving of either bran or prunes. Bran and prunes are especially helpful in alleviating constipation. Bran helps increase fecal bulk and prunes contain a compound that speeds their transit through your gut.

MOBILITY FOR MOTILITY

Mobility for Motility

Sitting down for much of the day can contribute to constipation. Physical activity gets things moving and can help promote more regular bowel movements. Make a point to be active for 30-60 minutes per day.

“The FMS model is not a time-based, it is a behavior-based model.” Gray Cook

Out of the many questions asked by those using the FMS system, “How long do I perform drill X” or “How long till pattern X changes?” have got to be the most common.  Whether posed on a forum or in an email, the questions come up frequently.

So how long do you perform drill X or how long till pattern X changes?

Let’s dive in here and see if we can clarify the behavior-based vs. time-based perspectives.

As exercise professionals, we are used to thinking in time frames.  Microcycles, mesocycles, and macrocycles are familiar time-based frameworks for periodization and planning exercise progression.  Another common timeframe example in programming is when we attribute the first 4-6 weeks of improvements in a strength training program as neurological adaptations before structural adaptations become primary.  And let’s not forget to switch exercises every 4-6 weeks to prevent adaptation time frame.  So as exercise professionals, we are conditioned (pun intended) to think in time frames.

The issue with this — once we are addressing movement patterns — is that movement patterns are behavior-based.  They are pre-programmed just like any behavior.  And behavior changes much faster under the right conditions.  I know what you are thinking.  Behavior changes quickly?  Give me a break.  But read me out (you are listening to the voice in your head not me…so you can’t hear me out… but I digress).

To change that behavior, did you identify the root issue, definitively find the strategy that would change it and apply that strategy consistently?  No?  You will likely blame lack of “will power” as the point of failure, not the ability to change a habit or behavior.  But it is typically a lack of identifying the root cause and definitively finding a strategy that creates change and consistently applying that strategy that fails to change behavior.  Applying that process of identifying the root cause etc. is the FMS strategy for successfully changing movement patterns in a nut shell.

Step 1: Identify the root issue

This simply means running a great FMS screen and correctly identifying the movement pattern that needs to be addressed.

Step 2: Definitively finding a strategy that creates change

This means “filtering” the corrective exercises and strategies to find the ones that create change in the pattern right now.  It’s not focused on a change of score, but aims at an improvement in that pattern as a result of the drill you just applied to the individual.  And, move as far down the “corrective path” as you can during any given day.  

If you create a change in Mobility, then move on to Static MC.  If the Static MC improves, and the Mobility holds, or even improves more, then move on to Dynamic MC and be sure that the pattern continues to improve.  You will know you have gone too far when progress stops or regresses.  Simply step back to the sequence that created positive change and that will be the strategy for that individual.  So it is not a time-based strategy of 1 or 2 weeks of mobility, then 1 or 2 weeks of stability etc… It is moving down the corrective path as far as you can while having positive short-term responses in every session.

Step 3: Consistently apply the strategy

The strategy that you found to create positive change needs to be consistently applied in order to create adaptation.  “Positive short term response leads to long term adaptation.”

This is the key to quickly changing movement and why the FMS strategy is behavior-based, not time-based.

Think of quitting smoking.  One cigarette after a week of not smoking can unravel all those days of not smoking and knock you back to square one.  If you always have a cigarette after eating, and you sit there after your meal, then your brain will create the intense desire for a cigarette. But, if you change that setting so you get a positive short-term response (for example, you go for a walk and do not have a cigarette), and you keep encouraging that response, then you get long-term adaptation.

So if the attempt is based around a successful strategy that is consistently applied, then one cigarette has less of a chance of derailing all progress because you can simply immediately reboot the successful strategy and apply it again and again.  An efficiently performed strategy of 2-4 drills that creates positive response in a movement pattern — that progress accordingly and achieve positive short-term response — can change movement patterns quickly and achieve long-term adaptation.

This means encouraging the positive short-term response as often as we can without failure or fatigue becoming an issue.  It could be once a day or twice a day or more; it all depends on the individual and their response.  This can change movement behavior in a very short time frame.  It could only be a matter of sessions, or take a few weeks, but continual progression and application of a successful strategy can create quick adaptation.

Let’s take a look at a response vs. adaptation case study example:  

Grandma Betty is seeing a trainer or therapist for balance issues.  She walks on the balance beam (4” wide x 1” high) for 2 min in “warm-up” and we are looking at the number of step-offs in those 2 minutes.  After that, we apply a mobility drill paired with a stability drill, and notice 50% improvement in competency (50% fewer step offs in the two min) on the balance beam.

In this case, we achieved a response, not an adaptation.  We will only know if the response is creating an adaptation by checking the balance beam exercise again in the next session (without first doing the drills that led to the improvement). She could be 25% better next session, meaning some carryover happened, but we need to continue to encourage the positive response and Grandma Betty may need to do her “homework” more often.  “Homework” is not the balance beam, but the drill is the key strategy for her.

How do you know when you can move on from a movement pattern?  

When the individual comes into a session with no prep or correctives and the pattern is improved, as defined by an improvement in score.  Now you can rescreen the other patterns to see if there is anything else to address.  If yes, go through the three steps again and find that successful strategy and consistently apply it.  If no, go on to great programming that achieves the goals and encourages great movement quality.  But keep an eye on the baseline!

Breaking the time frame mindset takes a little time (funny!), but is worth the effort.  Efficiently and effectively changing movement allows us to get to the fun stuff of training and developing the qualities needed to accomplish our client’s goals.

Meet one of our latest ACE certified Personal Trainer: Daniel Soh

 

Daniel was part of the July 2016 Intake of our 48 hour ACE Certified Personal Trainer course.

He was also one of the few brave students who decided to sit the infamous 150 questions ACE exam less than one month after completing the course. His decision was the right one as he passed it with flying colours!

Everyone at the FIT Academy Singapore is really proud of this great achievement and wish him a successful and enriching career in the Industry he loves.

We hope to be a part of his upcoming success with our varied selection of short courses/continuous education.

 

A little bit about Daniel…

daniel-soh“I have been interested in fitness and constantly involved in it for over 20 years now. I tried changing my passion briefly 8 years ago, but realised that my love for fitness was too strong to just call it quits.
To me, training is a way of life which builds mental discipline that flows into other aspects of my life. I would be happy to share my philosophy and approach to all who are open to learn and listen to new ideas. On the same note, I am always hungry for groundbreaking knowledge and experience in relation to training. That hunger has led me to pursue the ACE course even though it was irrelevant to my professional career. The money was well spent in the sense that I got to speak with industry professionals who specialise in subjects like anatomy, nutrition, posturlogy and I walked away each week with refreshing new ideas for my own workouts!
On a personal note, I am more interested in subjects like anatomy, posture and structural balance of the human body.”

 

If you would like to get in contact with Daniel, please contact us at info@fitsingapore.sg

 

If like Daniel you have a passion for training, health and fitness that you would like to take further, we have great news for you: we will be holding our next intake of the ACE Certified Personal Trainer Course starting mid-January 2017. The course will be held every Saturday from 9am to 5pm for eight (8) consecutive weeks (excluding public holidays).

What is FMS?

fms_logo
Functional Movement Systems is a company with a mission to help people move better and then move often. The philosophy was introduced in 1995, at a time when there was no systematic tool to identify movement asymmetries or major limitations in functional movement patterns.

FMS (Functional Movement Screen) is the screening tool used to identify limitations or asymmetries in seven fundamental movement patterns that are key to functional movement quality in individuals with no current pain complaint or known musculoskeletal injury.

 

These movement patterns are designed to provide observable performance of basic loco motor, manipulative and stabilizing movements by placing an individual in extreme positions where weaknesses and imbalances become noticeable if appropriate mobility and motor control is not utilised.

 

FIT Singapore will be offering FMS Level 1 and Level 2

 

What you will learn…

 

Level 1
  • Describe key principles to support the importance of movement screens.
  • Explain the role of mobility, motor control, and functional patterns in fundamental movement.
  • Use the Functional Movement Screen instructions and procedures.
  • Distinguish between correct screening techniques and common mistakes.
  • Apply the scoring criteria for consistent and reliable screen results.
  • Develop exercise selection and programs using the FMS.
  • Explain the purpose and application of corrective exercise.

 

Level 2

  • Troubleshoot common mistakes made when administering the screen
  • Determine whether someone has a mobility or motor control restraint
  • Understand how different tests of the screen can be related
  • Learn corrective and essential exercises
  • Comprehend how to assign proper exercises based on an individual’s screen
  • Implement corrective exercises into program design
  • Use the FMS score to determine which patterns should be trained

Why Functional Training is here to stay

 

(And exciting announcement below…)

p1070796

Functional Training is training that has a purpose. It is context specific and will differ for professional athletes and special need populations. However, to the masses ‘Functional Training’ consists of exercises that help people function optimally. These include mobilisations, releases and activations to ‘undo’ our modern postures and exercises based on primal patterns including squatting, lunging, pulling, pushing, carrying and twisting to help people get lean, strong and balanced. A majority of Functional Training exercises are done standing, include multiple joints, big muscle groups and include movements that cover all 3 planes of motion.

Here are some good reasons to get into functional training:

  • Strength and Coordination: With compound movements, exercises involve integration of multiple muscle groups. In technical terms this is intramuscular coordination which means that multiple muscle groups are firing in a coordinated manner at the one time to produce a greater force.
  • Posture and Mobility: To be functional, then functional training must require moving the body in all planes of motion that it was designed for. This includes bending, squatting, pushing, pulling, running, twisting and so on. So when exercising (with good form) in these movement patterns, it will result in strengthening the muscles that hold us in a great posture. Furthermore it will improve stability and range of motion at the joints. Not having good posture and mobility could lead to things like tension, headaches, osteoarthritis, musculoskeletal injury, sleep loss, weight gain, and the list could go on.

There are endless articles on the topic of Functional Training and I have read some that suggest that we are in a trend or craze. I would completely disagree and say that functional training is not something new, it has been around forever and will go on forever more.

In an industry that is going gangbusters; what we are seeing however is an ever increasing number of tools at our disposal that are designed for functional training. It’s these tools that I believe are often a current trend or craze. I’m not here to bag out any tools that fit in this category, instead point out the ones in my mind will never ever phase out.

  1. Kettlebells: Dating back to Russia some 300 years ago and after being introduced into the western world circa to the year 2000, and are now growing exponentially, for good reason too. Kettlebells are a powerful training tool with incredible versatility. Ballistic multi-joint movements require full body integration and core stabilization. A simple tool that has been absolutely proven to increase strength, stamina and coordination by challenging our muscular, cardiovascular and neuromuscular systems.
  2. Barbells: Used for Olympic lifting for a start, so that says something. Barbells are a staple in most gyms and a great tool that enables us to achieve and build on strength and power.
  3. Medicine Balls: A ball of weight that can be used for so many purposes including lifting, throwing and slamming.
  4. Sandbags: Another simple tool that has incredible versatility and the ability to take on the role of all of the above tools. It can be used to swing, perform Olympic style lifts, throws, carries and so on.
  5. Battling Ropes: Battling Ropes are amazing for developing power, anaerobic endurance, strength endurance as well as grip and core strength. They require coordinated movements between the upper and lower body and are challenging for all fitness levels.

There are of course other tools I could add to this list, but these are my favourites. The common denominator for mind is that these are training tools that have been around for the longest. The fact that the fitness industry and our scientific knowledge of exercise has evolved so much and yet the popularity and growth of these tools are ever rising, show that functional training and these tools are here to stay.
