Two days down. High five. Now you have a couple physical practices you can work into your day (Floor-Sitting & Nose-Only Breathing) as well as a handful of mobilizations to go back to if/when you feel they’re needed. Arrows in the quiver. Onward!
Day #3 features a classic of ours – COUCH STRETCH. The real focus here is on your ability to extend your hips. When you think about what we’re built for, it’s getting up and down, walking around carrying stuff, and swinging or throwing objects. All of which require hip extension. Sadly, many (most, really) humans lack hip extension. Some more critically than others.
Today’s Test will challenge your hip extension and be complemented by a mobilization designed to improve upon it.
