LSM: 🤸‍♂‍Loosey-Goosey vs 🏋️Super-Tight CORE!

Lately, more and more people of all ages, shapes, and sizes have been asking me to spend extra time exploring getting up from the floor and getting back down again.


I’ve talked about this before, “How to Strengthen Your Core” (https://youtu.be/uDArQ_BFKMY), but it’s been my experience that this “practice” is remarkably predictive of physical strength, mobility, stability, and coordination. Basically, it absolutely improves our movement options.


As always, my goal for you is to give you the MOST BANG for your efforts in EVERYTHING we do. Based on your body (https://youtu.be/-v4wCkSqiL0), what I’d like to share with you today are TWO DIFFERENT STARTING POSITIONS…getting up from and back down to the ground. Each position has two variations.


Here’s what you’re gonna need:

-Comfortable/Clear space

- Maybe something for the back of your head/neck?

That’s it!


Here’s my recommendation: ALWAYS START HERE because being able to breathe correctly and according to your body is the FOUNDATION to better health, getting stronger, and feeling good again. What’s your body like? Then EXHALE/REACH like this: 🤸‍♂️Loosey-Goosey: LONG Sighing exhale (fogging a glass)/Reach arms straight up 🏋️Super-Tight: Pursed Lip exhale (blowing out birthday candles)/Reach arms overhead Daily Practice for YOU ➡️ https://youtu.be/QD8ZwYjfCI4


💥For the sake of time, I’m demonstrating getting up/back down with same hand/knee from my back…and opposite hand/knee from my side:)


Here’s what you’re gonna do:

🤸‍♂️Loosey-Goosey SMART MOVES:

✔️Start on your BACKbreathing anyway you want!

Rd #1: Get up with your RIGHT hand on your RIGHT knee/REPEAT LEFT hand on LEFT knee x 2rds/side

Rd #2: Get up with your RIGHT hand on your LEFT knee/REPEAT LEFT hand on RIGHT knee x 2rds/side


OR


🏋️Super-Tight SMART MOVES:

✔️Start on your SIDEbreathing anyway you want!

Rd #1: Get up with your RIGHT hand on your RIGHT knee/REPEAT LEFT hand on LEFT knee x 2rds/side

Rd #2: Get up with your RIGHT hand on your LEFT knee/REPEAT LEFT hand on RIGHT knee x 2rds/side


Here’s my suggestion. Practice either as part of your current exercise routine warm-up or cool-down or just simply make it part of your daily restoration routine.


I want you to pay attention and notice how over time, you’ll come up with your own strategies to simplify getting up and back down. I just find it fascinating.

Let me know how it goes. I’d love to know. Dedicated to your health and longevity, Mike
