FIRST…Snow Shoveling safety.
We’re getting snow dumped upon us here in Southern Indiana and a lot of people who never do any shoveling of any kind get out and clear their driveways and sidewalks…and hurt themselves in the process.
So we revisit the “hip hinge” process to save your spine when you shovel snow (or anything else!)
SECOND…An important 2-step process to help you keep your shoulder blades in good posture.
A couple of days ago at the gym I observed a well meaning personal trainer attempting to show her client how to properly work on pulling her shoulder blade down and back with a simple band exercise.
But the poor girl just could NOT do the movement!
No matter how many times the trainer coached the move, she kept shrugging her shoulders when she attempted to pull the band.
Once again, it re-enforced my commitment to teaching fundamental body awareness and helping you groove good posture and movement patterns so you don’t get hurt when you exercise!
In today’s episode I give a 2-step shoulder blade positioning process to help you get back in touch with the ideal positioning, or “set-up” so you can use your scapula properly with any pulling movement.
It can be a movement as simple as opening a door, starting a lawn mower, or using a garden rake.
Bottom line…good movement MATTERS!
Enjoy and let me know if this helps.
