Physical Stability

Physical Stability

After doing some stability training exercises with John, during my first week of going to prehab, my core was sore in a way that I’d never experienced after doing my usual core exercises (like sit ups or plank). John explained that it was because we worked on stabilizer muscles. That was new to me! Now that I know more about what stability training is and how to do it, I’m excited to implement it consistently. What about you?

Experiment with Movement

Experiment with Movement

We’re conditioned to move in certain ways: Lie down, sit, stand, walk forwards... If you think that’s not true, try going up to a wall and doing a spinal wave. You’ll probably feel pretty weird! I did, when we did this in Prehab class the other day. Most people just don’t move their spine in a wavelike motion, and definitely not next to a wall.
