Movement Digest – Feb 6, 2022

In my last newsletter, I mentioned that I had joined the team at Nutritious Movement. And two weeks later, I am still loving it! 

I am loving it for many reasons but among those reasons is that they often do their in-person (and virtual) meetings on the go. This is a photo I took during our yearly planning meeting. 

The truth is that you don’t have to work for a company with the word “movement” in its name to adopt this type of behavior – anyone can do it! And you don’t have to worry about sacrificing productivity or focus either. In fact, studies have shown that our meat-sacks brains are actually more productive, creative, and focussed when we are walking than when we are sitting…under fluorescent lights… in a dull board room. 

Jus’ sayin’.

Mostly Legs Core Workout

Most people think core workouts are all about crunches and sit-ups but we can work the core very effectively with movements (mostly) made by the legs. 

In this video, I demonstrate:

  • Double Legs Raise
  • Donkey Kicks
  • Flutter Kick
  • Plank Toe Taps
  • Feet Circles
  • Mountain Climber

If you do these together, it makes a heck of a core workout. And, as you can see, you can do it anywhere you have room – and you don’t have to even change your clothes!
