Full Body Routine Anytime
Do you know why you dont frequent your gym anymore? is this because you dont feel like it and or dont make time?? Well, you dont have to make a trip anywhere to have a complete full body routine workout! You know what it is? Walking on all fours 😀 Sounds fun but did you know its not nearly so easy as you think. Apart from getting over the thought of acting cute, your legs may not take more than a few steps of this “exercise” done correctly. Actually thats some exercise! Offer your loved one to try it if they disagree…
how to: Walking on all fours
For a while I followed suit of those isolated people walking ape like on hands and legs straight. It felt quite toning for a while till I started feeling low back pain. You see, ours and apes’ arm to leg ratios are switched. due to their long arms apes have this strong upper torso from walking on all fours. However, you my dear should alter your full body routine a tad. Akin to a deer, bear weight onto where toes meet metatarsals. That will happen naturally as soon as you lift you heel off the ground. Keep reaching up into the sky with your heels. Bring your knee down to almost touch the ground. Yes it feels like that when you attain horizontal line. Your shins need be parallel with the terrain you choose to prod with your toes deer like. You know how the deer has that backwards knee, well thats what your heel is. Got it? doing i right keeps your low back comfortable, but takes quite a bit of core, leg and full arm engagement. Keep you neck almost parallel too.
Start with Toddler Crawl
The way I got this movement happened the moment I dropped to my knees; at least my toddler crawl would offer me some less intense full body routine. still I felt both limited and ripe for more action. Bringing my knees only so slightly off the ground, I suddenly could propel myself so much faster by thrusting off the metatarsal ledge. Have someone observe you or record yourself. Staying low takes focus and practice… Have fun !
