FOUNDATION TRAINING IS A WAKE UP CALL

Mon June 8,2015

Here we are again on a Monday morning.  How many of us are waking up sore and tired from our weekend warrior activities?  How many of us are off to the gym this week to train our chest, biceps and quads?  How many of us will head off to our “desk” job and sit for most of the week?  How many ladies out there will high heeled shoes on all week?  How many of you have poor posture?  How many of you with back problems have been told to work on your core?

The point I am making from the above questions is how dominant we are in the front of our bodies.  The quads, chest, forefoot and biceps take the brunt of the workload in any given day.  Wearing a heeled shoe tips us forward loading the forefoot and quads.  We will make adjustments in most cases by arching the back…now we have extra forces on the discs.  Couple that with sitting at a desk…well this is a recepe for muscular imbalance and pain issues.

How many of you spend time…quality time on the back of the body?  This is where the most important muscles are.  The posterior muscles groups.  The body needs this group of muscles strong and flexible in order for them to do their job…which is to keep us upright, in good posture and balanced.

The term posterior chain refers to the series of muscles that include the low back, the glutes, the hamstrings, and even the calf muscles. Posterior chain exercises involve most, if not all, of these muscles in a chainlike manner.  Posterior chain exercises also contribute to a strong core. A common assumption is that the term core applies only to the abdominal muscles, but the low back, glutes, and even the top of the hamstrings are all part of the core as well. This back side of the core must also be developed and maintained.

If you are complaining that your back hurts or your shoulder hurts…chances are there is weakness in the back of the body somewhere.  That weakness is most likely coming from tightness in the front of the body.  This is what imbalance in the body is.   In most cases the front of the body is pulling the body forward couple that with forces of gravity pushing on us daily…no wonder so many people have back problems, disc degeneration, joints with worn out ligaments, and just overall compressed bad posture!

IMPROVE…AS YOU AGE

Tue Mar 3 2105

You can improve as you age. Start with the basics…improve your posture.  Turn on the posterior chain and get your back muscles working again.  Yes, fire up the glutei…you still have butt muscles…use them!  Let them do their job, which is to help support your weight.  Get that head back up over your shoulders.  The more you have it sticking out the more your neck, shoulders and back are going to hurt!  

FOUNDATION TRAINING is your solution to better health and body improvement!  I promise you learning FOUNDATION TRAINING will correct that forward head, rounded shoulders, weak back muscles, tight hamstrings and much more.  

All I can do is keep telling everyone about FOUNDATION TRAINING.  I do this because I love it, believe in it and I know it works!  

Yesterday, I posted a few pictures of people in poor posture.  These people have muscular imbalances and pain issues.  I have worked with 3 of the people personally.  Take a look at today’s pictures… They are learning about their body.  They are learning why they have these issues and what to do to fix them.

Have a great day and I’ll be waiting on your call to schedule.
