Primal Move is an integrated movement system, where the goal is to create better movement, based on the primal and primitive movements we all once mastered as children.
Do you remember when you had no pain as you played, ran, played football, threw a rock or climbed a tree?
Do you remember when movement was joyful, fun and you felt the ‘flow’?
All my classes and clients warm up with the Primal Flow Evaluation, and the PM exercises and concepts are used throughout the training. In November 2012, I traveled to Victoria and was certified as a Primal Move Level 1 Instructor. The video below gives you a glimpse inside this amazingly effective system.
I would like to take a moment to introduce you to an amazing stretch. This stretch helped me go from a 2/3 to a 3/3 on the Functional Movement Screen.
What does this mean?
It means that in only one-month, I increased my upper-spine (thoracic) mobility to a level it has not been at since I was a very young child. The major added bonus is that my low-back no longer has to take the extra strain when I lift weight overhead. As a huge proponent of the Overhead Press, this is pure gold!
For anyone who spends any time sitting (driving, computer, TV), this stretch can be a real life-saver. Ignoring poor T-Spine mobility is a recipe for disaster down the road, with low-back pain, upper-back pain, shoulder pain and immobility and the dreaded “dowagers hump”.
Here’s a video of the man the stretch is named after, Bret Jones – Master RKC, teaching you how to do it.
