DON’T WAIT until you have to!

I’m often asked what we can do every day to increase our overall motion and improve our comfort. “What can I 'train' every day, Mike?”  And my response remains the same after all these years…

 

💥We’ve gotta do the NON-SEXY WORK.

 

And by this, I mean the HARD work that most people don’t like…or just gloss over (or totally avoid) until they HAVE TO DO.

 

And I know…most folks don’t want to hear it, but I PROMISE you, this work is the DIFFERENCE MAKER for us…especially as we age.

 

💡Remember this: Limited mobility and discomfort prevent us (more or less) from doing what we want and love to do every day. So, DON’T WAIT until you have to!

 

So, learning how to “dampen down” our overall muscle activity (which is the root cause of most of our tightness, tension, and discomfort) will absolutely go a long way in helping us move and feel better. And bonus… we’re gonna feel more relaxed, too.

 

Please understand we’re NOT STRETCHING anything out here. 

 

Sensations resulting from this type of work are SUBTLE at best…and that’s if you’re getting it right!

 

So, what I have for you today, will increase our overall motion and improve our comfort, especially through the front side of our bodies. This is especially good if you slouch in your shoulders and chest…even the tension we hold in our bellies (especially if we're constantly training our 6-pack abs). 😉

 

Here’s what you’re gonna need:

-Clear/Comfortable/Quiet space

 

Check out my video below. 🔉 Sound ON!



Here’s what you’re gonna do:

-Think about being “heavy” into the ground

-Lie on your belly 

-SAME SIDE leg/arm flexed up (SUBTLY SHIFT your weight to this side)

-Elbow crease should be eye height 

-Flexed up knee is just out to the side (NOT hip height!)

-Turn your head towards flexed upside

-Opposite arm straight down along side of your body

 

Hold this position as demonstrated and breathe:- Silent NASAL INHALE- SOFT OPEN MOUTH EXHALE 

-Practice: 10-15 breaths x 2-3rds/SIDE

 

Notice how you move and feel afterward. Your posture any different?


Practice DAILY as part of your everyday movement routine and enjoy feeling better afterward!


Dedicated to your health and longevity,


Mike
