Use it or lose it
But please don’t abuse it
Your body can do what you want
When you choose it.
Get up and be ACTIVE
Not reactive, PRO-active!
(And much more attractive!)
Just 5 minutes of practice
On every other day.
Not such a big hardship
Or huge price to pay
So make movement a habit
From cradle to grave
The payoff is priceless
A lifestyle maintained.
Most people could benefit from improving their joint range of motion and their core strength. Years of sitting tighten and weaken bodies. Movement and stability are fundamental to leading a functional and fully participatory life. Whether you surf, run, ride or swim, mobility for hips and shoulders is a must. Want to keep up with the kids? Be able to play with the grandkids?
In this step-by-step video, the focus is on mobility for hips and shoulders. Follow this simple demonstration of a 5 minute sequence to increase your range of motion in these areas.
Sequences such as these gain in necessity as we age.
To stay supple, lithe and functional, make movement a priority.
