Burnout, Time Famine & PAIL’s and RAIL’s FRC Training

I was getting pretty close to burnout in the summer because of a term called “Time Famine”.

When time is slipping away and there is no time for yourself.

After listening to an episode of “The Happiness Lab” by Dr. Lairie Santos, in which she discusses this concept, my view changed.

Do not wish away the time. Do not wish for the workday to be over. Look at little pockets of your day as relaxation. Shift your mindset to one in which you can be relaxed and present while working.

I don’t know when and why people started convincing themselves that when at work you have to be stressed and serious.

I understand that not all professions have this privilege. Firefighters, police officers and paramedics for example.

Even those folks have pockets of brief downtime throughout the day.

Loosen up folks. See your work as a relaxing and present thing. Life will change there and then!

⚡PAIL’s AND RAIL’s. WHAT ARE THEY AND WHAT DO THEY DO?⚡
.
.
Progressive/Regressive Angular Isometric Loading. The goal: To find end range and get stronger there.
.
.
I use this for athletes that will find themselves at end range frequently. However, to be honest, all athletes should be using some type of FRC (Functional Range Conditioning) to improve stability.
.
.
Don’t forget that stable joints means you can reach full potential in regards to power output, force production and velocity. This is because torque (area generating energy) isn’t lost when stabilizing muscles are strong.
.
.
There are a million positions in which you can perform PAILs & RAILs.
