PUSH Fitness & Rehabiliation
Welcome !! PUSH-as-Rx ®™ is leading the field with laser focus supporting our youth sport programs. The PUSH-as-Rx ®™ System is a sport specific athletic program designed by a strength-agility coach and physiology doctor with a combined 40 years of experience working with extreme athletes. At its core, the program is the multidisciplinary study of reactive agility, body mechanics and extreme motion dynamics. Through continuous and detailed assessments of the athletes in motion and while under direct supervised stress loads, a clear quantitative picture of body dynamics emerges. Exposure to the biomechanical vulnerabilities are presented to our team. Immediately, we adjust our methods for our athletes in order to optimize performance. This highly adaptive system with continual dynamic adjustments has helped many of our athletes come back faster, stronger, and ready post injury while safely minimizing recovery times. Results demonstrate clear improved agility, speed, decreased reaction time with greatly improved postural-torque mechanics. PUSH-as-Rx ®™ offers specialized extreme performance enhancements to our athletes no matter the age.

Pilates For A Healthy Spine

Pilates for Pain

Exercise can help with back pain—you’ve probably heard that before. And Pilates tops the list of “helpful for your back” exercises.

This shows 4 Pilates moves to prevent pain. Of course, talk to your doctor before beginning an exercise plan.

WARM-UP YOUR SPINE WITH THIS EXERCISE

CAT/COW

The cat/cow stretch lengthens and strengthens the muscles along your spine.

Start on hands (shoulder-distance apart) and knees (hip-distance apart).
Inhale and look up as you slightly arch your spine. Then exhale, engage your abdominal muscles, and draw your belly button toward your spine as you gaze at your navel. Repeat 5 to 10 times every day.

CHEST LIFT

NOT YOUR AVERAGE SIT-UP

The chest lift is similar to a basic crunch. The difference? This move deeply targets your abs.

Lie on your back with knees bent and feet flat (hip-distance apart). Bring hands behind head with fingertips touching. Elbows are wide open.
Inhale, and then as you exhale, pull belly button toward the spine and lift the shoulders off the ground (leading with chest). Really use your abs to lift—not your neck. Inhale again as you release toward the ground. Repeat 6 to 8 times daily.

PELVIC CURL

A POSE TO HELP EASE LOW BACK PAIN

Doing this exercise regularly teaches you how to engage your abs to help support and lengthen the low back.

Start by lying on your back with knees bent and feet flat (hip-distance apart).
Arms are straight along the sides of your body and palms are touching the ground. Inhale deeply and engage your abs as you lift your hips off the floor—vertebra by vertebra.
Exhale and roll back down very slowly, engaging core muscles. Link breath with movement. Repeat 3 to 5 times daily.

CHILD’S POSE

AN EASY, RESTORATIVE STRETCH

This move really stretches tight, sore low back muscles.

From hands and knees, bring hips toward heels, and stretch arms in front of you so palms are touching the ground.
Press forehead gently to the floor and do some deep belly breathing. Bring hands toward the legs to slowly sit up. Repeat 3 times daily.
