Training Recovery

Topics discussed include: syringes, balls in butts, broken old bodies and more.

E. 69 Derrick Price: Tissue Hydration and Optimal Movement


Welcome to Episode 69 of the Obstacle Order,

Derrick Price

In this episode Philip sits down with Derrick Price. Derrick is the programming officer for The Institute of Motion, a world based organization that helps people move well and move more often in order to increase quality of life and longevity.

In this episode we discuss tissue hydration and mobility strategies to assist in warming up before a workout or a race. If you’re at all into what your body is doing when it performs for you then tune into this episode of The Obstacle Order.

Philip and Derrick delve into daily strategies you can incorporate to stay more mobile and why that is important. Is sitting the new smoking? According to Derrick that is a lark. Being sedentary is whether you are standing or not. Because we sit or stand still so much all day, it is important to not only have a specific movement strategy, but to also know how to pepper mobility into your life. This will allow for a more healthy lifestyle and increase longevity.
