Blue Dunn's 3 Power Moves
Even if the following three power moves are the only flexibility work you do, they will change your life and increase your body awareness and flexibility dramatically.
This simple exercise, done in a minute, throughout your day, like a cat stretching after getting up from a nap, will keep your knees and spine flexible and functional for as long as you live. You can use your kitchen sink or any other stable railing or pole, so there are no excuses.
2) Ape Walk
A full body integrative, simple exercise done in just a minute, using the floor, the wall, a chair, or the arm of your couch, it effectively and easily loosens up most every joint in your skeleton.
3) Full Body Spinal Roll Downs
This exercise may be the single most important self-maintenance / flexibility movement in existence. All you need is a wall. Start, or end, your day with this miracle move and reclaim your flexibility.
Blue's 4 favorite Self-Maintenance Tools
When integrated into your routine, they will diminish your pain, and change your body and your life.
1) Structural Release Rollers
Learning how to use these 3 Rollers will take your self-maintenance work to the next level. There is no better way to speed up the process of loosening and reorganizing your musculature, while creating more space throughout the joints and hinges of your skeleton, allowing for a more functional, aligned, and postural correct body.
2) Massage Buddy
Once you learn to use this amazing tool it will become one of your best friends. Fix your spine, SI joints, and hip joints and keep yourself off the operating table. A great way to avoid back or hip surgery, and also to assist in recovery if you’ve had surgery.
3) Fix Your Feet Balls
There is no simpler, easier, cheaper way to fix your feet than this method, and the results are immediate and apparent. Change your feet and you’ll effect change throughout your body.
4) Abdominal Release Ball
Forget all the hype about “strengthening” your core. Trust me, until you release all the tension in your core with this tool, any “core strengthening” will only add insult to injury and create more problems for you.
***I have had countless clients and students of mine, who had gone to chiropractors 2or 3 times a week for their whole adult life, fix their own body with these Movements and Tools and never have to go back. Properly used they can allow you to access and dissolve the chronic holding patterns and pain that have been causing your musculature and joint aches and pains. Whether you are an athlete, a weekend warrior, or a sedentary couch potato, these Movements and Tools are a crucial missing link in your quest for Health and Fitness.
