This is for those of us who for a variety of reasons (shape of our structure, wear and tear, injuries) just feel STIFF or CONTRACTED…like in tight ALL OVER. And thus, our movement is limited and we feel tired and sore because of it. If this speaks to you at all, then what I have for you today is a great place to start moving and feeling better! The goal of this exercise is to LOOSEN UP your torso and hips…reducing TENSION throughout your body…allowing for better movement and an overall sense of just feeling better.
This is NOT intended to be a “workout”…but an opportunity to show your body some LOVE…resetting it, so that you can work out…or do anything you want to for that matter.

Here’s what you’re gonna need: -Comfortable/clear space
As always, I want to credit my friend and mentor Zac Cupples for the inspiration behind this move.
Here’s what you’re gonna do:
✔️Set up on your knees and forearms
✔️Get an easy reach through your forearms
✔️Exhale as you gently push away from the ground. NO CRUNCHING!
INHALE: Lift OPPOSITE arm/leg
EXHALE: Land. NO SAGGING! SLOW. LONG. EASY.
✔️Repeat: 3rds x 5 strides/side
💡Keep your STRIDES short and sweet!
