Keeping the main thing the main thing: if you bobble on the tightrope of life, get your legs back under you and start again.
I’ve been a bit preoccupied lately, but I’m back! And here’s on of my favorite warm-up exercises. It is an active move that helps to elongate the hamstrings while activating the shoulder and torso stabilizers.
Begin by leaning forward, hands to floor. Keep your legs straight (but knees not locked). Start crawling forward with your hands untilyou’re in push-up position. If you
are able, keep walking your hands even farther out in front…without dropping your body to the floor and smashing your face (just sayin’. Isn’t a helmet related activity.). Hold this elongated position for a second or two. Then start moving the feet. You move them by picking up your toes/dorsiflexing the ankle (not bobbling your butt back and forth). Back to starting position.
22/40 Have a simple “move” that signals your body to “start”…start the day, start a workout, start the week, start again. Whatever it is, you’ll know you’re ready for bigger and better things!
