Stretching Routine Cheat Sheet 2020

August 7, 2020

My last post was a video of me demonstrating a short flexibility routine that I do every morning. The whole thing takes less than 5 minutes. I normally do 10 reps for each movement. I should mention that I prefer (and recommend) counting deep breaths instead of just reps. This routine may look like Yoga to some. Think of it however you like. All I’m doing is trying to increase overall range of motion while also relaxing the body and mind. Depending on what my body needs (or perhaps, doesn’t want) I may add a few extras to my “morning flow” and if time is an issue, I may cut out something for that particular day. This post is a simple photo “cheat sheet” for anyone interested. Make sure to watch the last video. I tried to briefly explain each different movement. Inevitably, I’m certain I left a few things out. I always do. The point is to stretch your boundaries, explore new territory and have fun in the process. It does require work to take care of the body but it is always worth it. #bssbbooks #morningstretchroutine #morningflow #austinpersonaltrainer #austinpersonaltraining #austinpersonaltrainers #blueskystrongbox

STRETCH DAILY TO IMPROVE FLEXIBILITY

August 7, 2020

For most us, our bodies will get stiffer with time. It’s our responsibility to do something about it. Anyone can improve flexibility but it requires daily practice. It doesn’t have to take up too much time. Today I demonstrate a short 3-5 minute stretching routine that I do EVERY SINGLE MORNING upon waking. I literally drink a full pint glass of water then immediately get down on the ground and perform a few stretches. I’ve done this for years. It’s short and sweet. I might not be the most flexible person in existence but I’m much better off now had I ignored stretching altogether like so many do. Watch the entire video. I have a few useful tips scattered in it. Please ask me any questions. I want to inspire you to take better care of your health. If you’re not very flexible, you may be missing out on more than you’d ever realize. It may also increase the chances of sustaining a serious injury. You can do something about it. Start today. #morningflow #morningrituals #dailystretching #fiveminuteflow #yogaflow #austinpersonaltrainer #austinpersonaltraining #austinpersonaltrainers #blueskystrongbox

Working Around Injuries

August 7, 2020

Sometimes things hurt. Sometimes after going to the doctor to get checked out, things still hurt, often when we’re told nothing is wrong. Sometimes something is actually wrong, we get sent to someone else to fix it and it still hurts after completing treatment. Now what. From my own experiences and the countless stories of others, the next step may require some careful experimentation with only pain and comfort gauges as our guides. This we must do cautiously and intelligently. Learning to listen to the body is essential for optimizing progress. Sometimes things we think won’t hurt, do. Sometimes things we think will, don’t. The key is find any and all movement that can be done without doing any unnecessary harm and/or causing pain. Pain killer medication should only when used if/when absolutely necessary and should be prescribed by a responsible medical professional. #exercisingwhileinjured #austinpersonaltrainer #austinpersonaltraining #austinpersonaltrainers #blueskystrongbox
