Brain and movement

December 5, 2017

The Brain 🧠 and intentional movement. Every time you need to coordinate your Brain 🧠 comes to direct the wonderful orchestrated moment- first voluntary movement then different sections of the brain involved with coordination like the cerebellum or basal ganglia shoots back to motors cortex and Cortex goes back to the spinal cord and waits for the proprioceptive information from all our muscles and soft tissues- not that easy huh? Check the video I made for you #superbodysuperbrain

If you want to read more here you go one of my most read articles at my blog

The Cerebellum and Movement

I remember reading this fascinating study a while back and my jaw dropped: The article it is titled: “The Treasure at the Bottom of the Brain by Henrietta C. Leiner and Alan L. Leiner“. According to the Authors: “One of the most incredible parts of the human brain, it is named the cerebellum and science has been underestimating it for centuries. Located at the lower back of the brain. Formerly this structure was thought to have only a motor function, which it performed by helping other motor regions of the brain to do their work effectively. But during the past decade a broader view of its function has emerged as a result of new research, and now the cerebellum is regarded as a structure that can help not only motor but also nonmotor regions to do their work effectively. In fact, the cerebellum has been compared to a powerful computer, capable of making contributions both to the motor dexterity and to the mental dexterity of humans, both of which are required for the emergence of fluent human language” for more click here

The Cerebellum it is to be considered to be an absolute machine in the back of the brain. The Cerebellum is one of the most impressive parts of the human brain and it has been underestimated by scientists till now. In my book Super Body, Super Brain I explain how this part of the brain can be key to unlock on the most important human quests that is how the brain interacts with the body. Evidence is mounting showing how this structure it is absolute key for our health, aging even our intelligence!

Did you know that our brain has 100 billion neurons and 50% of them are packed in just 10% of the brain mass? Do you know where are they packed? In the bottom of the brain in a part of the brain called the cerebellum. If you are really good at math you will realize how 50% of your neurons are located in just 10% of your brain mass.

However neurons in the Cerebellum are really different from the neurons in the rest of the brain. My absolute mentor Dr John H. Martin Ph.D and Author of Neuroanatomy: Text and Atlas has explained me how this interesting motor circuits work and how the cerebellum plays a fundamental role.

Why are the neurons called Purkinje in the Cerebellum so different? Are they better or worse? According to Dr John H. Martin Ph.D who has studied the Development of the motor systems of the brain and spinal cord and currently he is a Professor at City College in New York “I think they are different in several ways. Let me tell you about two. First, they take in an enormous amount of information. Think of a big tree with lots of branches and leaves. This is like a Purkinje cell; the branches and leaves are receiving information from other parts of the nervous system. They have more “branches and leaves” than other nerve cells. Second, they are different in another way; they inhibit the firing of other neurons. Most neurons that receive so much information excite other neurons; Purkinje cells inhibit. We don’t know why this is the case ”

Thank you New York Sports Club

December 3, 2017

Thank you to New York Sports Clubs for following me in Instagram- I still remember the day I stumbled to the club at 73rd and Central Park West where I met another trainer like Victoria Gallagher. Year 2002 day May 20th 2002. I just moved to NYC and after few meetings with banks I decided to do a side job as a spinning instructor like I was doing Holiday Gym Alcántara while I was working Santander Bank US. I wanted to go to Reebok and see if there were any openings for a spinning instructor while I was applying for banking positions money was running out and I needed money to at least buy food 😂 I skipped my stop and ended up at 72nd and Central Park West I arrived to New York Sports Clubs and I wanted to speak to the manager and see if there any openings. The Manager Noah Gordon was a fan of Mike Wallace 60 Minutes so when he saw my name he thought I was related to him. He invited me to come in to speak to him at his office and explained me that I could be hired as a Personal Trainer. I came next Tuesday and gave me a black T-shirt then he brought Windex and a

Table cloth and I said I thought I had to train people and he said well “you need to wipe the sweat 💧 from clients treadmills and try to get them as clients” at that point on my knees I hit my newest bottom and thought to myself if I am able to do this I can do anything. Three months after I passed my National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) test and got 6 private clients so had to quit the gym I will always cherrish these memories #memories #hittingabottom
