Training improves what you are doing
Training improves what you are doing. If what you are doing is functional you are training your body for long lasting health. If what you are doing is against function, then exercising can actually hurt you.
This weeks video is an excerpt from our new digital Pelvic Power course. As you can see in this video, the key area to understand function is the movement of the pelvic half. The human pelvis is mobile, as it needs to be, or you could not walk, run or sit down.
When you flex your hip joint, the pelvic halves (also called the innominates) rotate slightly inward. With your hands you can feel the ASIS moving inward while the sit bone moves laterally. As you stretch your legs, feel the ASIS move outward and the sit bones move inward. Not allowing this movement to occur by gripping the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles reduces your hip flexibility and is not how the moving human body creates stability. If you let your pelvic bones move functionally, you will be strengthening your muscles for dynamic stability and movement.
