“It’s about making real and authentic well-being accessible to all. Wellness means different things to many people”
I’ve recently discovered a new book ‘STRETCH By Roger Frampton where flexibility and mobility are the keys to our long-term movement.
Stretch gives you unique insights into the seven principal movements which can be done either at intervals throughout the days or all at once depending on your lifestyle perfect for those who work remotely from home too. His book also includes a programme and a full breakdown of how to implement the movements including progressions and regressions based on your current level of flexibility and how to scale as your flexibility improves.
“For the first time EVER, a Book has made History about Stretching is top of the Fitness charts!”
Finally…people are starting to recognise that tightness in the body literally pulls your body into rounded posture, is the root cause of too much pain in the body and leads to all kinds of mobility issues as we age.
Following Roger’s key exercises starting from as little as 7 minutes per day we can get such tremendous benefit from incorporating our daily stretches…And the great news. We can reverse so much of the damage already done and I’m willing to give this a go and so should you.
”The book highlights some of those common problem areas that lead to pain in the body including, IT back, hip flexors, neck & shoulder blades and is written for those who are currently experiencing pain, sat hunched over a desk all day or just want to feel the plus benefits of some regular good old-fashioned stretching”
PLAN YOUR WORK OUT SCHEDULE
Depending on your schedule it has programs within Roger’s book ranging from 7 minutes per day and up to 1 hour training schedules for those wanting something more advanced.
Set Goals for Daily Regular Movement Exercise
Set yourself a goal and allocated a time each day to improve your overall movement and form a solid habit of regular movement.
The Benefits of Stretching and Yoga
On the subject of stretching the beginnings of Yoga were invented by the Indus-Sarasvati civilisation in Northern India over 5,000 years ago. In 2019 the Yoga Market size reached 88Bn and the year on Year growth is expected at 12 percent. But, what made yoga become so popular and on trend?
Studies show on top of helping with physical pains such as back pains, and improve functions such as the ability to move or walk, by increasing your balance and flexibility as Movement Coach Roger Frampton leads as great example. Did you know, Yoga could increase sleep efficiency and time quality. In studies of diabetes, daily yoga decreased blood glucose levels, heart rate, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, and oxidative stress markers. Increased energy and decreased stress were observed among diabetic groups.
