How Well Can You Crawl?

I appreciate simple things. I also appreciate that simple and easy are not the same thing. They say you can tell a lot about someone by the shoes they wear and how they walk. I can do the same watching someone crawl. A very simple thing to try (but may prove to be more difficult for some) is to walk/crawl down to the ground and come back up to standing using mostly your upper body and whatever flexibility you currently have. Try to do several in a row if you want. (After years working as a fitness professional, I can honestly say that, as easy as this may be for regular exercisers, it’s often quite difficult for those that are sedentary.) Did it make you breathe heavy? Was it challenging to move the weight of your body around? Did you feel tight in a few areas? Perfect. This would be a great place for you to start exploring movement with your body. Yes, it also burns calories too. Just make sure nothing hurts when you do it. It is ok if it doesn’t look perfect. The point is to begin getting more comfortable being uncomfortable. I recommend practicing this daily. You don’t need to get all sweaty while doing it. Not yet anyway. For now, don’t even worry about counting any reps if you don’t want to. I would rather you put all of your energy toward simply moving better. You’ll know you’ve made progress when it feels easier to do AND begins to look more and more graceful over time. You can always upgrade to BEAST MODE later on if or when things drastically improve. But for now, master the fundamentals. They are never to be overlooked. #bssbbooks #blueskystrongbox

New Weekly Health & Fitness Tips! This week i simply wanted to show what AMeRiCAN PoSTuRE looks like and how it happens. Nothing speaks louder than pictures. Some of it is exaggerated to prove a point. W must be mindful of the things we do every day because they may be making things worse. The choice is ours. We need to sit up straight, stand up tall and get off our phones. And remember to move. And when we do move, we should avoid working only the muscles on the front side of the body. Work the backside. Avoid things like crunches, bench press, bicep curls and leg machines if you lack the knowledge of how to balance those exercises out with opposing pulling exercises. (Things like planks, deadlifts, bridges and pulling/rowing movements!)

New Weekly Tipz! Yes it’s true, there are a million exercises. I could show you any number of them. But instead, today, i am suggesting just one. One to add to your current collection. It’s simple, but it does a lot of things all at once. O f course, there’s nothing necessarily magical about any one exercise… unless you make it that way. There’s no need to do a bunch of exercises if you really focus your mind and body on just a few. Quality over quantity every time. Surely you have time for a 3 minute video today?
