Breaking down big exercises is an easy way to take your movement practice to the next level and get more joint mobility along the way.
Exercises like the Roll-Up, Teaser, and Rolling Like a Ball are simply compilations of smaller movements.
Just like a word is made of letters, and a sentence is made of words, big exercises are made of smaller exercises.
And these small moves are like the vowels in our words.
Without vowels, a word is just a jumble of consonants impossible to pronounce.
Without the small movements, bigger ones become a jumble of clumped-up body parts, leaving behind pockets of stiffness in the wake of your exercise efforts.
In today’s video, you’ll learn a different approach to a smaller exercise called pelvic tilting.
This small, fundamental move is fantastic for the lower back and hips and will help ensure you get more out of the bigger exercises you practice.
After you try it, I’d love to know how it goes; make sure and let me know in the comments below.
Forever breaking it down,
