MoveMentality Weekly Challenges: Week 5/1-5/7

Got Your Back Family! This week we are rolling out (see what I did there) weekly MoveMentality challenges that can be done anytime, anywhere and will seriously help you improve your movement abilities. The best part: they won't interfere with any current exercise, training etc you are doing and are a great jump off point if you are easing into a movement routine.  

This week: "Lego" Rocks. Lego rocks work wonders for mobilizing and the feet and ankles. Everything from the big toe through the Achilles is moved. Lego rocking also taps into a range of motion the hips don't often see dut definitely need!

A combination of plantarflexion and dorsiflexion at the ankles as well as internal and external rotation of the hips will keep your joints happy. This type of total joint integration is one of the hallmarks of the MoveMentality System and Original Strength.

Try 25 reps on each leg everyday this week. Take videos or pics share! Click here to see the Lego Rock in action!

See Yourself There; That's the First Step.

I'd love to share the advice that I wish I had known earlier: please make sure to catch yourself if you are someone who puts yourself down or buys into the saying that "we shouldn't get our hopes up" or that a goal has to be "reasonable."

Your Toast is Ready!

I am often asked:  do you get adjusted too Doc?  How often?  Through the science of simply listening to my body, I have arrived at the number ten. 

If I Ruled the World. . .

What would the world be like ruled by YOU? Would there be mandatory nap times each day and breakfast for every meal? Unlimited hugs? Check out Beth Lindley's (Health Educator & Raw Foods Coach) story in this month's blog!

You Are What You, Poop!

Actually, that’s not true; it should more accurately read "you are what you digest!" So, you can see how that old expression "you are what you eat," is only half of the truth. Which leads to the point of this month’s blog.
