Joint stability is often defined as the state of a joint remaining or promptly returning to proper alignment through an equalization of forces. KI expands on this definition by including the following: the level of stability of a joint is defined by how it responds to perturbations. Thereby, a stable joint possesses the ability to manage
perturbations while performing a dynamic task, while an unstable joint cannot. In fact the unstable joint cannot manage perturbations effectively, resulting in movement dysfunctions and the need of external support. Sum of Sums, add perturbation training to your workout, training or rehabilitation programs!!

This sedentary lifestyle has lead to an epidemic of not only metabolic disorders but also musculoskeletal injuries. One of the most common musculoskeletal...

BeWell’s Walk and Run 2013: Julie’s Story

Be Well. Be Orange. - Fri, 10/04/2013 - 2:25pm

First Week

“My goal is to finish the run under 30 minutes.”


My name is Julie Phan and I am a senior in Exercise Sports & Science (EXSS) under the option of Fitness and Nutrition. I have been teaching dance choreography for over four years and am now teaching Body Pump at Dixon Recreation Center for this upcoming fall term. This is my first time blogging about any experience that I have done and my first 5K to participate in and I am super excited to do it! I am certainly not a runner so when I say I am going to train this it is going to be hard for me. My goal is to finish the run under 30 minutes.
What I have planned for myself for the next couple of weeks is to time my miles and compare them as I shorten the miles at least 15-30 seconds shorter from the start of my first mile. This will be a great opportunity for those who would like to explore the campus and make new friends! Come and have fun in your workout clothes, costumes are encouraged, and show your beaver pride in ORANGE AND BLACK!

Live well, learn well, BE WELL,
Julie Phan
