Last week I attended a full day workshop on “Posture and Movement Analysis” in NYC. About 25 fitness professionals showed up, all of whom exercise regularly. After we conducted a posture assessment for each other, we were shocked to learn that EVERYONE had moderate to severe posture problems.
Home workout [Note to self: add 1 min plank to rotation and instead of burpees do mountain climbers and/or spiderman crawls). Ive done this workout a few times on days where life gets hectic and its hard to schedule in the gym. No excuses. Even if the day is hectic at least do this exercise at home
I just did this for the first time and man am I going to be sore in the morning. It says it's a leg workout, but it definitely works your arms and core as well. I can't do burpees because of my ankle and knee injuries so I did a one minute wall sit. Here's to hoping that in six months I have my sexy legs back.
The focus on building back and shoulder muscles is often lost in the hyper focus on leg speed and strength, but after years of hard contact & speed skating stance, you'll need them to be strong to keep neck, shoulder, and back injuries at bay. Back pain during endurance drills is because the muscles are *over stretched* due to good derby form. Make them strong, and the pain will stop. :D // Derby
