POSTURE is an under-appreciated aspect of health you can do something about. Now’s the perfect time for a posture reality check. Begin working to improve and start standing and sitting taller to look better and feel younger.”
FOUNDATION TRAINING can greatly improve posture. The society we live in today is anteriorly dominant. The front of our bodies are stronger or more dominant than the back of our bodies.
Humans have always fought the battle with gravity. Gravity pushes against all of us everyday…that will never change. What has changed is that humans do not move as much. We stay sitting at a desk all day. We are on a computer device all day long. Kids carry 25 pound backpacks on their developing frame all day long. It is nice in our country to have all the luxury, technology and convenience that we have…but it is making us lazy. We do not use our brain like we used to or our bodies.
When I was a youth I knew all my friends phone numbers…I have an I phone now…I don’t have to remember anything. As a kid so many of us walked to school…some quite a distance carrying a few school books. Now, those back packs look like kids are gonna climb a mountain and be gone a week. We have technology everywhere…we sit and work on computers all day every day… This folded position is wrecking havoc on our spine, our muscles, our necks and shoulders. These continuous postural habits are going to catch up with everyone.
Couple our technological lifestyle with the forces of gravity…so many of us are destined to be bent over, develop adult scoliosis, have forward head syndrome, muscles weakness and joint pain. So many of us will run to the doctor for relief. You will get a shot, or a pain pill/muscle relaxer, or even a few weeks of therapy. Wow…do people really think all these choices are going to fix years of poor habits? Doctors help people with sickness…not poor posture and muscular weakness…and the pill he gives you won’t either.
Learn FOUNDATION TRAINING!
Take a few sessions from a certified instructor. Employers, offer FOUNDATION TRAINING at your business. A FT workshop will be so beneficial for employees. Coaches, have a FT instructor come in and teach the athletes proper stretch/strength techniques. This will reduce injury and improve performance. Seniors, the seniors can improve balance, strength and mobility with FOUNDATION TRAINING.
Advil, cortisone shots, will not “fix” pain problems period. Start taking care of your body…make some postural adjustments, lengthen and strengthen with FT…and in most cases you can manage your own pain issues.
Have a great day!
