Inception Explained: Unraveling the Dream Within the Dream – by a bunch of film geeks
If you’re like me, you’re still trying to wrap your brain around the ending of Inception. To say it was by far the best movie I’ve seen this year is an understatement. It’s like director Christopher Nolan took The Matrix and Memento and made a love child out of them.
To that end, if you haven’t seen the movie, you suck. Secondly, don’t read the link above because it has some major spoilers. For those who have seen the movie, enjoy. I think it may help explain a few things.
In light of an email I received from a friend who asked advice on how to go about looking for a trainer for her sister, I thought I’d re-post this older blog I wrote a while back. As well, I came across two fantastic articles written by Lyle McDonald and Leigh Peele that go into a lot more detail than I do and might be of some benefit to others out there in same boat as my friend.
2 Lessons on Success – Mike Robertson
I think this is one of the better blog posts I have read in a looooooooong time. Mike has been on a role lately with incredible content on his blog, and this one is no different. Hello man crush!
Epicondylitis and Cervical Radiculopathy – Mike Reinold
While the title might sound a little intimidating, Mike shares some interesting research showcasing a really strong correlation between cervical radiculopathy and lateral/medial elbow pain. In short, as Mike notes in the post:
If muscle weakness or imbalance occurs to the wrist extensors and flexors, which are innervated by C6 and C7, overuse and eventual tendonopathy are likely to occur.
This has huge implications for those suffering from chronic elbow pain, and demonstrates that many therapist may be missing the boat entirely if they’re not making a concerted effort to clear the neck while treating clients with epicondylitits.
Also, on an aside, I found an apartment! Now I have every reason in the world to walk around and say, “this is where the magic happens.” BOOM SHAKA BOM BOM.
