So here’s the deal…working on your mobility can be quite boring and often yield little to no results. When people do typically work on their mobility they don’t really focus on the things that make the most difference, and so they don’t get the results their hoping for and tend to give up on it very quickly.
But as a Doctor of Physical Therapy and Coach I can tell you that improving your mobility is actually pretty easy if you focus on the right things and do it the right way. If you focus on the BIG things that make the most difference then everything else just sort of falls into place.
This is the concept we used when creating our book The Sitting Solution, which is the ultimate guide to resolving your pain, restoring your posture and fixing your sitting problem. We have written this e-book to raise awareness about the sitting problem; empower and inspire people to take action and give them the practical tools to do so. We want to help keep you from ending up like the above figure on the RIGHT and get you back to looking like the figure on the LEFT.
Now lets get to the fun stuff!
Lets say you don’t have much time, you’ve been traveling or sitting for a long time and you want to do something to:
1) ease your pain
2) improve your posture
3) prevent stagnation and adaption (the 2 major issues that occur from chronic sitting)
Ok…well I have something for you today that I think you’ll enjoy. I’m calling it “The 1 Minute Mobility Hack” and all you need is your body and some space on the floor. You can check it out here in the video below:
