Cat Camel Spine Warm-up

This exercise can better be classified as a self mobilization, meaning that you are actively loosening your tight muscles and joints. This is especially helpful this time of year due to the weather. We are very susceptible to muscle strains and tears when we're not warmed up. If you're going to be heading out to shovel snow, it's a must that you prepare your body. Otherwise, you're at higher risk of injury. If you forget to warm up, or simply don't follow my advice, you know where to find me so we can put you back together :)

New Exercise Video Posting: Shoulder and Core

Hello all! The new year often brings renewed energy about exercise or an interest in changing up your current exercise routine. Here's a great exercise for your shoulder, mid back, core, and back.

The tripod reverse fly is a great time saver since it incorporates so many different muscles (which my fellow parents will appreciate!). Note how I begin on my knees and progress out to being on the feet and 1 arm, the latter of which is very challenging and would be considered an advanced exercise.

Click the link to our website http://www.reliefatacr.com and go to the exercise video icon on the left side of the page.

Enjoy and stay active!

Row Progression

This week we've posted an exercise on a "row" progression. Rows are a great way to strengthen and tone the muscles of the mid back, the forearms, and biceps. Be sure you don't feel these on your upper shoulders (the place you'd rub someone's shoulders). Also, the staggered and figure 8 variations can add variety to your current routine and can be accomplished with the rope attachment if you're using a machine versus bands.

If there is anything we can do to help you or someone you know achieve your Resolution, please let us know! Any new patients that mention this email or our blogsite are eligible for our $50 initial exam referral credit.
