Amazon Quest is a computer game my kids played when they were younger. It was a great game: interesting story line, interesting characters, and varied interactions and choices to figure out. I also realized that there were definite consequences to making choices and those consequences rested on a moral compass just as much as steering down the Amazon required a steady hand and good directional skills.

If you think #Mobility and #Flexibility are the same, could be one of the reason you are stuck in the same range of motion with no results and possibility of an injury. Doing only #stretching for flexibility pre/post #workout will temporarily improve the length of a muscle, as the muscle will return to its original state and results will be temporary. Utilizing Mobility exercises and in particularly prior to exercising will be more effective because it is based on movement and control.

Your ability to actively move a joint through a range of motion is not only dictated by the mobility at the joint but by your central nervous system. The high intensity, low impact exercises that I integrate are an excellent method of improving muscle endurance across any age group. Incorporating #Barre, #Yoga, #Pilates, and #Bodyflow is one of the best ways to train and increase your #mobility and increase range of motion by actively contracting and stretching your muscles through various poses.

This post is a non-philosophical one.  I have simply given you my take on how to do the six movements of the spine, with reminders on integrating the breath, internal and external focus, and ways to adapt it when you, or your student, might have an injury or condition that makes one of the styles of practice difficult or uncomfortable.  Please feel free to share, quote, or get back to me with questions.

In any type of exercise or athletic training, optimal performance is reached when our primary source of fuel is fat instead of sugar. Fat stores are sustainable forms of energy, while sugars (i.e., glucose) are unsustainable forms of energy.

The other day I was looking something up for a class, and happened to go through several of my old ACE manuals. For those who do not work in fitness, ACE is one of the largest certifying agencies for fitness professionals. I still have my first manual... published in 1987. I also later did a personal training certificaion, and then, after taking time off when my kids were little, did the group fitness one again. So I have a lot of manuals.

One day when my youngest brother was about 12 or 13 (and I was about 15) he decided he wanted some cake. Not having money or transportation, or a store anyplace near us he decided to bake one. Actually he decided to bake an angel food cake. My mother had always done a lot of baking, but had gone back to work full time the year before and we were all learning to figure out how to use her heretofore closely guarded kitchen. When I got in from wherever I was he told me about it, and showed me what he had baked.
