We are all too familiar with the idea of "rehab". The idea makes sense: 1) Get injured, 2) Rehabilitate your body. What if you could flip that ideas? What if you had the potential to avoid the injury all together? --> Prehab!
As in any area of healthcare, prevention is the best cure. When it comes to the musculoskeletal system a major component is ensuring proper muscular balance. Human movement and function requires a balance of muscle length and strength between opposing muscles surrounding a joint. A good prehab program involves specific stretching and strengthening. Everybody is different and the prehab that is right for you isn't necessarily the one that is right for the next person. However, there are a set of common movement patterns and postural distortions. My workouts and blog posts over the next couple of weeks will focus on this idea and help give you a better idea of what might be best for your body. This weeks workout is designed with the movement patterns and common postural distortions of runners in mind. However, its a good workout for pretty much everyone (believe it or not postural distortions of runners are very similar to people who sit at a desk all day!).
The BEST way to design a program right for you is to work with a fitness professional (I can help, *wink *wink). We are trained to design specific programs to meet the needs of YOUR body and YOUR goals.
