Since I'm coaching 13 to 15 year old boys baseball this year, I thought I would share this "Reverse Throw" move I use a lot to help EVERYONE (not just throwers) get better balance, hip flexibility, and a nice open posture through the chest.
All these things add up to less strain and less pain in your back, shoulders, and neck.
And hey I admit…it's challenging! You can keep a chair or wall close by until you achieve better balance.
If you're a pitcher, thrower, or into racquet sports…you MUST master this move or you will end up with shoulder and back problems down the line.
Enjoy and share!
P.S. We will be doing a TOUR OF LIVE TRAINING EVENTS at different locations in the U.S. this summer 2014!
So if you resonate with what I'm teaching and would like to share it with your patients, yoga students, massage clients, personal training clients, or you just have an active group, club, or organization, send me an email and let me know if you're interested.
No definite details yet, just gathering interest. I will post more info when we get locations and dates hammered out. Email me now and let's help the world feel younger, lighter, and happier TOGETHER!
I literally skidded down our wooden stairs on my heel (expecting the worst) to find our 2 female cats (both fixed), suddenly at each other's throats after a front porch visit from a Tom. (Finally got them back together without ripping and tearing).

2 Big Things To Talk About In Today's Episode Of Core Wellness TV!
FIRST: An Exciting Announcement:
As you'll see, I'm standing along the beautiful Current River in Missouri during this episode. And as you'll discover when you watch the announcement, I'm finally overcoming my resistance to doing live events on the road.
So if you like the way I explain movement, posture, and wellness and would like to host a live event in your part of the country (yes, we will keep in the U.S. the first time around!) then shoot me an email at email@example.com.
This is just to gather interest. We will talk more about details when we connect.
If you are a chiropractor, physical therapist, MD, DO, nurse practitioner, naturopath, yoga instructor, Pilates instructor, personal trainer, massage therapist, rolfer, or other type of bodyworker, and you would like to share what I teach with your patients or clients, that would be the perfect fit.
OR…if you have an active group or association that would like have a live exeperience using the Core Wellness Institute methods for pain free, strain free living, that would work, too!
Again…just send me and email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get the discussion rolling!
SECOND: An Important shoulder and core exercise that you may be tempted to pass over because it looks too simple. But it's ALL about the DETAILS on this one. (Especially when I talk about the "Hand Pillars" and "The Magic Moment")
Although I present this shoulder and core "Push Away Lean" exercise as an important "remedial" move for people who have lost the strength and stability to get up and down off the floor easily, EVERYONE needs to try it.
This really hit home during baseball practice last night (I'm coaching a 13, 14, and 15 year old team this year) that over half of these young teen athletes needed this simple "peel back" instruction to understand how to stabilize their shoulders and core!
