How we sit, stand, walk, run, squat, carry, lift, push/press, sleep, and anything else we do on a repetitive basis affects our body composition and tissue health. Tissues here include bones, muscles, fascia, nerves, blood vessels… you get the picture! Our movements and positions either honor our biomechanical systems or they don’t. That is why it is sooooo important to practice “right” movement strategies throughout the day, not just while you are working out or doing your home rehab progam.
Anyone who comes into Kinesis for rehab, prehab, athletic conditioning, and/or core work hears this over and over again. But I believe one can never hear this too much. We all need movement corrections, even myself and Coach Kimmie! The goal is to spend more time in right movement patterns so our bodies can weather the times we revert to poor movement choices. No one is perfect! Spend time practicing… building myelin for future injury resistance.
In the meantime, enjoy the following video from one of my mentors Kelly Starrett. If you know Coach Kimmie and I personally, this video will ring true and sound verrrryyyy familiar!!!
