The Perfect Push up

Hello My Darlings!

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.

What to Stretch When ANYTHING Hurts

Hello Dear Ones,

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 😉).
