I’ve been doing this exercise for years, simply because it feels so good in my hips. I had no idea how beneficial this move actually was, until I attended the Fascial Conditioning workshop where Robert Schleip taught this move as an actual exercise.
This exercise will help you release tension in the back, hips, abdomen and pelvis and, of course, move and hydrate your fascia.
It may sound like an odd concept, but keeping your fascia moving and hydrated is very important to your overall health—it’s actually called, fascial hygiene.
And while it’s something that may feel a little challenging to learn about and keep up with at first, once you internalize these concepts taking care of your fascia becomes second nature.
It also just feels great to train and improve our fascial fitness!
As I continue to deepen my knowledge of all things fascial, I look forward to keeping you posted on my, “a-ha!” moments in the world of fascial fitness.
If you want to learn more about your fascia and how to keep your fascia fit, you’ll want to read, “How Are You Like a Kangaroo?” and “Careful, or You’ll Grow That Way! The Importance of Caring for Your Fascia” if you haven’t already.
