A group of exercises that focus on effective human hip hinging. Sounds simple doesn’t it? In some ways it is…yet, for so many people the ability to hinge the hip has been lost. Hip hinging is a basic movement template we all are born with. Watch any baby learning to go from crawling to walking and you are going to see lots of hip hinging. Somewhere along the way many of us loose this ability to move from the hip. When this happens we are using others parts of the body (usually the back and knees) to start movement and or support our body thru a movement. This is how the viscous cycle of imbalances, injury and pain start.
The whole theory for FOUNDATION TRAINING is: The spine must be more stable than flexible for the body to be at it’s best! Dr. Eric Goodman, a young Chiropractor student set out and was determined to manage his own back pain as well as to help others.
There are three principals in Foundation Training: Decompression Breathing, Anchoring and Integration. These three principals once understood then combined with muscular tensions, lengthening and movement create stronger more stable spines, improved movement patterns and overall body awareness.
Foundation Training is for everyone! Dr Goodman and his excellent team have taught hundreds of practioners, therapists, trainers and lay people around the world how to use these principals to help themselves as well as their patients and clients. I can honestly say, I was skeptical at first…but my chronic pain is gone and has stayed gone ever since I learned FT 4 years ago.
The poses look simple but so much is going on in the body when you apply the principals! FOUNDATION TRAINING WORKS! Find a trainer near you at foundationtraining.com. Once you learn FT you will have a life long tool to help with any pain issue you are having. FT will not go out of style.
