TAKE “FT” BREAKS DAILY

Mon April 6,2015

How many of you go to your office each day and sit in chair?  How many of you have to travel for a living…wether it be by car or plane?  How many of you stand all day on a hard surface…factory workers come to mind.  How many of you do manual labor…heavy lifting?  How many of you go home so tired all you can do is shower, eat and sit in the most comfortable chair in the house?  How many of you go home with back aches, stiff necks, swollen tire feet, bad moods because you ache and are tired?

For a large number of people this is what daily life is.  Repeating our daily routine! Doing the same thing over and over until we retire.  Doing the same movement over and over.  Wether the movement is typing or ditch digging.  Wether the movement is performing open heart surgery or standing on an assembly line.  When we do the same movements over and over we are going to create over use issues, imbalance issues and malalignment issues.  The realization is most people do not realize the problems they are creating just from going to work everyday.

Factor in that most people do not exercise and most people gain weight each and every year of their life only accentuates the imbalance problems.  Even those who do exercise…they exercise wrong.  They go to the gym and do the same exercises over and over.  Some like that chest to look big…so they do not work the back much.  Some are trying to get a 6 pack, so they are on the floor pounding out the crunches…when all they are doing is flexing their spine.  Some get on those machines with the seat set improperly, or they are lifting to much.  You see all kinds of things in the gym.

Enter FOUNDATION TRAINING!  If people would learn Foundation Training they would start gaining control over their body again.

The first thing FT is going to do for a person is create awareness.  That desk worker is going to start adjusting their posture at the keyboard.  That surgeon is going to feel the strain in his neck from looking down all the time and adjust his shoulder blades.  The factory worker is going throw in some hip hinging while working or cut his adductors on.  A school teacher may get her whole class to take a decompression breathing break.

The principals and exercises of FOUNDATION TRAINING are “body saving”!  We all have to go to work and do what we do everyday.  Apply a little FT thru the day and your body will feel better!  Take a FT break during the day.  Get into posture at your desk or the water cooler and take 5 decompression breaths!  Before lunch do a lunch stretch on each side to stretch the hip flexors…this will take 1 minute if you do 30 seconds per side.  After lunch do 10 hip hinges to stretch your hamstrings a little…again this will take all of 30-60 seconds.  

FOUNDATION TRAINING will help stretch those shortened muscles groups, help you take in more oxygen, help you learn to breathe better, create body awareness, help even out imbalances, energize you and just make your body feel better.
