This morning I got up and put myself through a series of body-mind stretches.
The entire routine seemed like it took five minutes.
Key word is ‘seemed.’
Yet, when I finished, an entire hour had elapsed. There I was lying on my exercise mat in a pool of sweat, totally blissed out – feeling fantastic.
This is not how most people feel when they stretch. Most people feel aches, pain, stiffness and soreness.
And do you want to know why? It’s because they’ve never learned to do it the right way. They’re still doing the same old boring stretches they learned from a phys ed teacher in school.
One of the key elements in my Combat Stretching course is this: You focus on stretching more than the muscles. You loosen the joints from head to toe.
When you unlock your joints, your muscles gain a lot more slack immediately. Your tendons stretch as well – and get stronger.
Think of it, what good does a calf stretch do you if your ankle joints are tight? What good does a quad stretch do you if your lower back and hips are stiff?
Just from getting your joints to unwind and let go – you gain a great deal of psychological freedom. How so? Well, if your back is stiff, and it’s weighing on your mind all day long – think of what a load has been lifted when it is loose and free. The benefit is far more than physical – it’s mental, too.
In addition to that, when your lower back is loose, your kidneys and adrenals function much better – and last time I checked, these organs were huge in terms of giving you the fearlessness to go through your day with gusto and enthusiasm – with a belief that all will work out okay.
Being that energy flows from your feet upward – it makes sense that if there’s a clog in the lower back – there’s a serious amount of energy ready to be used, if you could only remove the blockage.
