HYDRATING FOR LIFE AND PERFORMANCE
Hydrating for Life and Performance
Written by: Brittany Peterson, ATC
The human body consists of more than 50% of water. Same goes for the Earth. That in itself shows us how important water is to our bodies and the environment. Yet a lot of the time we as humans are not properly hydrated. Fluid balance is the relationship between fluid going in to our body and fluid going out of our body. We take in fluids from food and drinks. We get rid of fluids through sweating, breathing, urinating, and pooping. But most importantly we need to know how to keep this balanced.

Do you know how to breathe? Did you know it could improve your performance? Learning how to activate your diaphragm and creating intra-abdominal pressure will lead to increased activation of the deep core stabilizing system. This is key for protecting the spine and leading to improved movement patterns and therefore increased power and performance overall.
For over a year now, I have been part of the Movement Rx Team. Because of that I have somewhat neglected my Olympus Movement website and blog. But I am happy to say that I am back. Wanted to write a quick post to share some things that WE and I are working on, and update you on a few things that have happened over the past year.
WHAT IS MOBILITY?

You may think this gymnast has maximal or even excessive mobility. In some movements that may be true, however in other fundamental movement patterns she may be lacking proper mobility.
