HELLO AND HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
The most important thing about moving your body is being in the correct alignment. So often there is relatively no attention to this detail that adds 10 times more to the benefit of your workout. What do I mean? Well, if you are performing a squat without the proper alignment of your bones, your muscles will be working incorrectly and you will not benefit as much, if it all from the exercise. Your whole workout will be for no good reason. Now no one wants that. When you execute a properly aligned lunge, you want to be aware of EACH AND EVERY body part. That means when you step back into the lunge, your hip bones are facing forward with the lunge leg aligned from hip to toes. Your back toes should be parallel and the heel should be lifted unless you are doing a yoga posed warrior position. Your supporting front leg should be aligned from your hip all the way down to your ankle. Your knee should bend over your ankle, and align with your middle toes. You should NOT bend the knee out front past the ankle. I could go on and on. EVERY EXERCISE HAS A CORRECT ALIGNMENT PATTERN. Learning this is key to a better workout, maintaining healthy bones, and strengthening and lengthening your muscles. Guess what else? Learning this helps you to inhabit your body. A good idea, for sure. IF YOU WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THESE CONCEPTS AND GET A VISUAL, GO TO THE LINK BELOW AND BUY MY BOOK ON AMAZON...
