Teres Major…Steak. Really?

I am a carnivore. I have come to terms with this. I was a vegetarian for a number of years, but drifted back to what was more comfortable. I know what I’m eating, even though the named cut of meat little resembles it’s anatomical name. A strip steak or ribeye give one little clue as to it’s origin. Even though I know that the tenderloin is the cow’s psoas, I feel there is a degree of separation that allows me not to think too much about its origin.

This all changed this morning, with an article in my local newspaper’s living section on the “new” steaks. Among a few innocuous named cuts was the Teres Major, as well as a recipe for this cut. My degree of separation was completely demolished. Is this crafty meat marketing or a major mistake? Maybe only those with some degree of anatomical knowledge will be bothered by this new cut. Count me in that group.

For now,

Walt Fritz, PT

I wanted to share this inspiring story with everyone. I will post it in a couple different parts. I hope you enjoy it!


They are big!

"They are gray and have a trunk and tusks and can squash you! 8,000 lbs. big. That’s about all I knew about elephants, the world’s largest land animal, until I read a new book.

If you love animals and love Myofascial Release then you will thoroughly enjoy “The Elephant Whisperer.”

This fascinating book is a true story about an amazing man named Lawrence Anthony and his connection and impressive communication skills with animals."

Lawrence owned a 5,000 acre animal reserve in Zululand Africa called Thula Thula. This pristine jungle had two rivers running through it, high mountain peaks and lush valleys filled with an impressive array of Africa’s wild animals, birds and reptiles.

Because of his expertise, he was asked to take on the impossible challenge of saving the lives of a herd of “rouge” elephants that were violent and dangerous.

Poachers were shooting and imprisoning members of the herd until they revolted and started killing any human that came near them.

I will not ruin the story for you by telling too much.

Lawrence was threatened many times. All they wanted to do was kill him. His skills, his patience and courage, his love can teach us all.

This book is also about “channel 3” communication. The emotional power we generate when we “center” ourselves as therapists to help our patients/clients.

"Elephants and all animals send out powerful emotional energy over long distances. The book becomes even more intriguing. Remember, this is a true story about an amazing form of emotional power and communication we all possess and can develop deeply.

Lawrence just died.

His body was in his lodge at his jungle reserve for his family and friends to pay their farewells and lasts respects.

The people in the building heard an ever growing rumbling. They looked outside and the lodge was surrounded by huge numbers of elephants!

Different herds of elephants from separate parts of Zululand travelled long distances to share their love and gratitude for his kindness.

They surrounded his lodge for 3 days mourning."
