On demand courses can be downloaded to watch offline or viewed via the Vimeo platform.
In month two, you'll begin to notice a marked improvement in your spinal and abdominal stability. This is because true strength in the body takes six-weeks to build. You will also feel the back of your body more engaged in every day life. You will begin to use less quads to propel you and way more glutes. Your head will naturally begin to retract as your trapezius muscles strengthen and properly support your neck. Overall, you'll feel a new lightness and freedom, moving towards a body where your head alignes above your shoulders, above your pelvis, above your knees, above your ankles, and above your heels.
We will continue to progress our practical strength building by incorporating the following:
- Maintaining neutral spine alignment while performing varied strength challenges
- Solidify the functional four exercises in your movement program, which serve as a benchmark and touchstone for lifelong strength training
- Move into single-leg and heel-lift strengthening which is necessary for proper balance and injury-free walking/running/hiking
