Daily life is your primary exercise studio
One of the great things about exercise is that it doesn’t have to be during an official class/workout.
Everyday movement such as walking, housework, home improvements, gardening or taking the stairs rather than the lift are all forms of non formal exercise.
But, as with formal exercise, to be safe and effective, you need good technique and body awareness.
Get movement in life right and you release tension, increase flexibility and tone, enjoy great posture and find integrity with every step you take. Get it wrong and you perpetuate tension, increase stiffness and run the risk of future injury.
One exercise that most of us do everyday involves climbing stairs – Let’s do it well.
Walking up stairs can feel like an effortful slog and it’s all too easy to do it with poor technique. Typically, this involves:
- Only using part of the step
- Being too upright or leaning back
- Stamping of the feet
Good efficiency on the other hand involves:
- Using the whole step
- Leaning forward
- Allowing the foot push to travel right through your body
This approach brings energy and grace, supports good knee health and is a great way to tone your glutes.
Please take part with the video above and keep in touch with how it works for you.
Enjoy your body, take care.
