Move From Your Back

Your shoulders have a lot of little muscles that do a lot of work, but your back has larger muscles that help move the shoulder blades and the arms. When you move your arms think about the motion coming from the back muscles instead of putting all the pressure on the shoulders.

Try it.

Lie down on your stomach with your arms out to the side like you are making a “T.” Exhale and lift your arms slightly off the ground. Feel the motion come from the upper back between the shoulder blades. Keep the motion controlled. Don’t just flop your arms up and down; glide them up and down.

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.
