101 / How to Regain Health and Confidence Through Strength Training w/ Aleena Kanner
Key Takeaways Peak performance training just isn’t sustainable. Sooner or later, something is going to give. Instead of just pushing their physical limits to the breaking point, strength training in an optimal way will help establish actual healthy results and heal a career of injury. Many of us work, play, and train at full throttle. But when we overdo it, we create problems whose solutions go beyond massage, adjustments, and ultrasounds. Today’s guest helps her clients rehabilitate through a conscious and comprehensive strength training approach. About Aleena Kanner Aleena Kanner is a Certified Athletic Trainer and NASM Certified Personal Trainer. She obtained a Master’s degree from the University of Arkansas in 2016. Soon after, Aleena opened her own business in New York City to bridge the gap between rehabilitation, movement, and resistance training with her clients. Aleena’s approach to strength training centers on optimizing individual performance and longevity by teaching individuals to become the masters of their own habits. She believes that rehab and strength training are on a continuum and that in order to feel our best we must move efficiently, load effectively, and train repetitively. Athleticism is not Health Many people confuse athletics with health. Looking at Olympians and other high-level performers, it’s easy to conclude that they represent the pinnacle of health. Aleena knows that that is often not the case. Often, they’re injured and overtraining with hormonal imbalances. Moving Better for Better Health Being able to load and move the body in an efficient way is the foundation of better strength training. This means moving away from symmetrical stances and emphasizing functional movement. In particular, getting the ribs in the right position so that they aren’t flaring, is at the foundation of Aleena’s approach. How can strength training play a role in your rehabilitation?
