OK! Pain & suffering it is! 😉 For my Mama at any rate.
A tumble went from unfortunate to nasty when a torn meniscus was involved. Exercise was discouraged by some, but I had a mind to check things out w/ her on our own…
If you’d like to see one SIMPLE, & 2 ESSENTIAL things to do ALL THE TIME whether you have a knee injury or not ;), watch away & create some freedom & comfort in places where there may not have been before.
Ok! Since we OFTEN talk about strength as the route away from pain – this will not be out of line.
“If” you’ve ever struggled w/ wanting to do this simple, but challenging, exercise & have run into discomfort in your shoulders or your wrists – this may be the video for you.
Push ups are an incredible exercise that are ridiculously efficient & convenient. And if you use the 2 concepts of linkage and shoulder packing – you should be more easily moving your own body w/ comfort & grace.
Do you LOVE it? Do you love it despite it taking a bit of a toll on your body? And has that strain showed up in your hips/top of thighs ever?!?
Well, if so – this segment might be worth checking out.
Watch and learn about your psoas muscle which is heavily involved w/ your well loved sport (but who also tends to carry more of the burden than it’s designed for…), and how to offset usage of this little guy – WHILE STILL RUNNING!! Yay!!
To figuring out how to not let anything slow you down ;).
Ok! There IS a deal w lower back discomfort ESP if you happen to be sitting a great deal of the day.

Video Addendum re: tip #2
*plus there’s mention of the 3 pillars of health (exercise, supplementation – pharm grade, & low glycemic eating or fat burning). If you have a desire for greater understanding on any or all – please be in touch.
To giving you a fighting chance when the odds are against you ;).
Have you had the experience of wanting to stretch the bejesus out of an aspect of yourself, only to not create the comfort you desired??
If it feels tight, then why doesn’t loosening it give long lasting relief?
WELL (do I sound like a cracked record?), that “tightness” is really taughtness (think of a rope being pulled to a point so that there’s tension). So what actually needs to result in that area is laxness or allowing that muscle to be shorter, not longer.
If we stop pulling on it (by loosing OTHER muscles around it) we will create relief.
AND if you either A) don’t know where to stretch, or B) do, but are SO v wound that loosening the local vicinity still isn’t cutting it – watch on. (As well as getting an up close & personal experience of gate B6 in the PHL airport 😉).
And have you seen Ashley yet?? She’s leaving for vacation in Costa Rica for her birthday (lucky 🐥) @ the end of THIS WEEK!! Oh goodness! So if her special offer of a superb massage for $60 over $80 through the end of August is desired, I’d heartily encourage you to jump on the opportunity before time. runs. out…
