Easy Way To Get Strong Abs

Strong abdominal muscles help you stay tall and have good posture.  That’s a really good thing because poor, collapsed posture causes heaps and heaps of problems.

When your back muscles and abdominal muscles (your ‘core’) are not strong enough to hold you up, you end up with forward head posture–collapsed posture.  That creates the posture of  ‘old age.’

You see, a lot of the problems of old age are caused by losing the fight to gravity.  Gravity wins.  Boo!

Bodies like to have long, strong muscles.  Not short, tight–long, strong is what they like.

Here are a couple of easy Continue reading “Easy Way To Get Strong Abs”

Do Rocker Shoes Make Your Legs Strong

People have asked me about shoes with rocker bottoms.  They are supposed to make your leg muscles stronger and more shapely but wait–how can that be?

By letting the shoe do the motion rather than the joints in your feet, you are not using your foot and leg muscles fully.

Here’s an article about this very thing from my friend, Dr. Brian Rothbart.

You DO want strong legs.  They will help with balance and they will help keep you young.

Easy Way To Strengthen Your Stomach Muscles

Here’s an easy way to strengthen your abdominal muscles.

I learned this from a physical therapist.  The easiest way to strengthen your abdominals is not to do crunches or sit ups.

I don’t like crunches or sit ups for a few different reasons and sometimes they can actually cause back pain.

The easiest way is to simply pull in your stomach!

And did you know that you can pull in the lower abdominals or the upper abdominals?  Or all of your stomach muscles?

And if you pay attention, you can even Continue reading “Easy Way To Strengthen Your Stomach Muscles”

Movements to Relieve Shoulder Pain and Arm Pain

You can get pain in your shoulders, arms and hands when the muscles around your shoulders are “out of balance.”  That means some areas of muscle are “tighter” than they should be and some areas are weaker. That is what causes pain.

This video will show you two simple movements that you can do to help re-balance your shoulder muscles.

Do these movements thoughtfully.  Take your time.  Try to make your circles perfectly.  Feel what is happening as you do these moves.

And pay attention to your arm, too.  These movements are like having a massage for your arms and shoulder muscles.

You Can Get Muscle Pain Relief With Simple Strengthening!

Pain relief from strengthening your muscles?  You bet!

A body that is strong and balanced has much less pain and functions better.

I get letters and emails from people all over the world who took action when they started to understand how their bodies work.  They started to understand that maybe they could become pain-free naturally.  The key is:  They took action.

They took steps to feel better rather than relying on their doctor to do “the push-ups” for them.  (You can’t hire someone to do your push-ups.)

Here’s a letter from Garry Allen.  Garry “got it” when he read some of my articles.  He understood.  He wrote previously to tell me he had found a massage therapist who helped a tremendous amount and had relieved a lot of his symptoms of muscle pain.

Avoid Back Pain By Skipping Sit-Ups And Crunches

If you have back pain, you’ve probably heard that you should do sit-ups.  While strong abdominal (stomach) muscles are good, sit-ups can be not so good.  Here’s why:

  • Your abdomen is basically the “front of your back.”  Some of the muscles that attach to your spine are actually accessible through your soft abdomen by a trained massage or muscle therapist.  Sometimes the muscles in the “front of your back” are the ones that cause your lower back pain.
  • When you do sit-ups, the movement removes the natural curve from your lower back; it makes it flatter.  The curve is good–it’s there for a reason.
  • When you do sit-ups, it’s easy to strain your neck muscles.
  • Sit-ups shorten your abdominal muscles.  Short muscles in front help flatten your lower back and take away your natural curve.  Short muscles in the front of your body make it harder to keep good posture.  Good posture helps prevent back pain.

What are some safer Continue reading “Avoid Back Pain By Skipping Sit-Ups And Crunches”

Are You Fueling Your Body With The Right Stuff? Is Pain Caused By Nutritional Deficiencies?

Wanna know why you feel like your systems are failing and you have pain?

Suppose your body is a rocket ship.  If your body doesn’t have all of the nutrients–the rocket fuel–that it needs, it can’t “blast off.”  It gets stuck.  All the systems are NOT “go.”

Sometimes your wonderful rocket ship of a body just kind of falls over and drops off the platform. 🙁

CLUNK.

Here’s the deal:  Your body needs certain things in order to function its’ best.  Those things include:

  • stretching
  • movement
  • a strong back side
  • plenty of clean water
  • fresh air
  • sunshine and
  • all of the nutrients it was designed to use.

You just can’t fly if you don’t have the correct fuel.

We are so fortunate that we have so many choices of what to eat.  On the other hand, too many of our choices are not really food and not really good for us, either.  And, if we don’t give our bodies what they need to function well, we shortchange ourselves.

You can be overweight and still starving.  You can think you’re fit and strong yet still be malnourished.  But, if you’re reading this article, there’s a good chance that you don’t feel fit and strong.  Maybe you feel weak.  Puny.  Probably your back hurts.  Maybe you have a lot of aches and pains.

The good news is:  You are in the right place!

You CAN learn how to have a strong back side, simply and easily with equipment you already own:  your own bed.  You can learn that here at Simple Strengthening.  How cool is that?

You CAN learn how to give your body a healthy menu that includes lots of colorful foods (Sorry–Froot Loops don’t count.)  You CAN supply Continue reading “Are You Fueling Your Body With The Right Stuff? Is Pain Caused By Nutritional Deficiencies?”
