And now…some more shoulders

Keeping the main thing the main thing:  I’ll move regularly, more often, and with better quality.  This is my (underlying) mantra, even as I sit at my desk and catch up with the myriads of paperwork!

Start in push up position...

Here’s another of my favorite moves:  Side-Walking Push-Ups.  It’s a great warm up, especially right after “inchworming” my way across the gym or down my driveway.  It wakes those wakes up those core muscles as well as the shoulder stabilizers.  Do this with a friend, if only to laugh at each other.  Kidding…tell each other how you look.  Ideally you want to be board straight.  If it helps you to (cheat a little and) put your hips and butt in the air, so be it.  Call it what it is:  cheating to lighten

...and walk sideways across the floor.

the load a bit so as to allow you to get something done is OK with me.  Cheating and not being honest with yourself, not so much. 

23/24     I will continue to work my posture, putting a little more healthy load on the shoulder joints when I can! 

Down the street, across the gym, at the playground…wherever you can fit it in.  Nobody when argue with you while they are admiring your great looking arms!
