We live in a digital world but sometimes you just have to go old school.
At Mercer, you won’t just learn about computer aided design (CAD), you’ll also learn how to sketch freehand and render. These skills give you a real edge in the design industry.
Because it’s much easier to come up with different ideas when you can confidently put pencil to paper.
Also, being able to do a quick sketch for a client can help communicate your ideas in a way that words sometimes can’t.
What better way to start the design conversation than with a beautiful sketch?

Congratulations to Jack Crisp ( @jackcrisp) who barring some unfortunate mishap will play his 100th consecutive AFL game.
This is a monumental achievement to sustain your body and form across 4+ seasons. Crisp’s streak is the 3rd longest active streak behind Justin Westhoff (124) and Jack Newnes (111).
Crisp played the final six games of 2014 at Brisbane before crossing over to the Pies and not missing a single game. He has managed 93 consecutive games for the Pies and 99 overall.
REHAB OPTIONS FOR HIP IMPINGEMENT
📍This weekend I highlighted a paper that showed that conservative management has the potential to improve function in people with hip labral tears +/- femoroacetabular impingement
📍This is a follow-up post which highlights some options for rehabilitation of the injuries described in the paper
📍Labral tears and/or FAI is commonly referred to as “hip impingement”. People who experience hip impingement may have symptoms with squatting, prolonged sitting and with rotation type movements of the hip.
📍Hip impingement rehab should consist of a number of strategies including finding comfortable fear-free ways of moving, modifying current aggravating activities, improving hip range of motion (ROM), improving hip strength/stability and addressing hip motor control. The latter 3 of these strategies are shown in this videos!
📍Video 1: Hip ROM exercises: These drills can be used improve hip flexibility and to de-sensitize any painful activities. The band for the first two exercises are meant to help with gaining range. They should be placed right at your hip joint and there should be some tension in the band. If you don’t have a band these exercises can still be effective without them!
📍Video 2: Hip strength/stability exercises : Building up tolerance through stability and strength exercises are a good way to progress from the ROM exercises. In the first exercise, think about keeping your lower limb stable while the weight changes your centre of gravity. In the 2nd exercise, stability is being challenged on one leg while the other is being strengthened through multiple planes of movement
📍Video 3: Motor control exercises: Sometimes with FAI or labral injuries , the head of the femur can sit a little far forward in the acetaublum (socket in the diagram in the first slide). This can lead to feelings of tightness and soreness in the front of the hip. Strengthening up some of the muscles that can keep the femoral head back can work to reduce that tightness. Maintaining a posterior pelvic tilt (tucking your tailbone in) through functional ranges is a good way of doing this

This Quick Foot Tip: Sole Mobilisations
Are you sitting around watching Netflix? It’s a good time to get in some plantar work as well.
The main aim with mobilizations is to actively search for fresh hotspots in your foot and then use twisting forces and pressure to wakeup the fascias, muscles, nerves, and other tissues that make up your foot.

Winter is coming to an end, and though I'm excited for the warmer weather, I'm also grateful for the colder weather we had. ❄️ This winter I took 2 ski trips to Horseshoe Valley, a snowmobile retreat up north, played a lot of hockey (indoor and outdoors) and enjoyed an awesome weekend in the Blue Mountains with @jasmineirven. None of which would have been possible without the cold weather. ☃️ Instead of complaining about your current situation, make the most of it. Be grateful and appreciate life's balance. There are always opportunities, you just have to be willing to seek them out. 👀
