Crawlebration Day 10

I’ve covered a lot of various crawls, transitions and such over the past 9 sessions. Today, I want to just focus on ‘just crawling’. Not limited by straight lines or a goal – just crawl. Imagine you have very limited space to crawl (maybe you are limited). How do you make up a 30 second crawl?

Just crawl in any direction, even play with writing your name with your crawl.

Check it out.

Crawlebration Day 5

Crawlebration

Celebrating and Exploring Crawling during December.

If you have difficulty with general movement, coordination, restrictions and perhaps some nagging pains and recurring injuries, maybe uneasy undertaking some tasks, it may be down to an out of use reflexive strength aka your original strength. 

Not to worry, reflexive strength can be restored with some practice, especially with one movement! 

‘Crawling can help you restore your original strength you were meant to have and unlock strength in many areas of your life.’

Not only will your physical strength and movement improve, your acuity will improve, your mood will boost and you’ll feel more capable and resilient to other physical demands of day-to-day life. 

‘It feels good to feel good’. 

Throughout December I’d like to celebrate what crawling can give us with a festival of daily crawling. 

Each day I’ll share a short video blog or a ‘crawl vlog’ to demonstrate various crawling methods and levels to offer something for everyone, because e.v.e.r.y.o.n.e can benefit from crawling. 

If you’d be so kind, I’ll ask you to share the daily crawlvlog on social media, perhaps with the following hashtags for good measure, plus your own of course 😉

Bonus…

Adults tend to have quite stiff wrists. A lifestyle of convenience, technology and less than optimal mobility, can lead to wrists being a little overwhelmed by working with the hands on the ground. So here are a few wrist care movements that feel great on the wrist.

Like the minimalist approach? The Mobility page is packed full of various minimalist strength and mobility exercises.

Got Feedback?

Flow into 2022

Sometimes you’ve just gotta move.

It feels good to feel good and moving feels good. You get the idea.

Join me from the New Year for ‘Flow’, where we’ll have fun exploring various movements.

Ask me about Flow for details on the What, Where and When.

Healthy Happy Hips

*** COMING VERY SOON ***

A lot of us struggle with some movements or positions, like squatting down, picking things up, twisting or reaching behind us – I’m sure you can add your own moves here.

My new guided Healthy Happy Hips program addresses these issues and more with simple, clinically supported follow-along videos.

More Details to follow.
Message me for first access to the program.

Cheers,

Not Getting Results?

For many people they exercise, train, workout, whatever you want to label it; just to be physically healthy. They don’t really care about progressing or shooting for personal bests. For these people, sticking to their habit is the success – to these people, I salute you.

Other people want to see and feel noticeable, tangible outcomes. They want to see repetition numbers, KGs, KMs go up. There has to be progress.

However, sometimes this does not happen when expected, or results halt. There are some potential reasons that I want to list below. Some of these may be obvious but hear me out.

Top 10 Recovery Tips to Boost Your Training Results.

  1. Not sticking to the plan. A plan only works when it’s followed and it is very surprising how many people can’t commit to a 4, 6 or 8 week program. Program hopping rarely favours results. Understand a plans expectations and follow it through.
  2. Sleep. Aim and plan for 7 hours a night. 8 if possible. And try to make it good quality sleep. The sooner before midnight you can hit the sack, the better chance of catching better quality Zs.
  3. Check out how much fun food you’re eating aka junk food – sweets, biscuits, that sneaky bar of chocolate that fell in the shopping trolley etc. cut it back. 
  4. Protein. Make sure you’re eating enough protein every day. Whether it’s animal or plant based, aim to eat 1.5 to 1.8g per kg of your lean weight. As a guide that’s about the same size as your hand x 3.
  5. Eat like an Adult. I have mentioned junk food and protein, but vegetables and fruits really should be present in your daily nutrition. Sure you might not like a lot of what you see on the shelves, but find a selection you do like, and invent lots of ways of eating them… or just make a smoothy!
  6. H20. Yes, water. Wash up, take a cold shower “brhhhhh”, but keep drinking water frequently during the day. If you struggle, here’s a tip. Every time you take a sip of water, take a second sip. 
  7. Health check ups. Get your blood tests done annually. Better to be sure.
  8. Reduce your stress. Get outdoors, walk, job, bike ride. Choose something enjoyable that gets you out for an hour or so. If you like to potter around the garden like I do, do it. It feels good. All that Vitamin D is awesome for your immune system.
  9. Move. You don’t have to train hard every day but moving gently every day is a blessing. If you can roll out the exercise mat and stretch, rock, roll, just belly breath, you’ll boost your recovery and probably have a great session the day afterwards. Check out these Mobility Videos.
  10. Like a drink? While a wee glass with dinner is okay, finishing the bottle of Cab Sav isn’t. Reduce the alcohol to allow your body to metabolism body fat better, rest properly and enhance sleep, lower systemic stress and prevent dehydration. Pretty much all the other points above can be boosted by reducing the booze.

I did mention following plans to the end. How about weighing up these items to see how you could improve.

I’m here to help should you need to talk about it.
