Movement of the Month: Many of you asked for simple, easy to implement movements and stretches that could be tossed in throughout the day. We will be highlighting these movements now under this section. These will be varied across all skill levels. The Back Body Line This movement is one of the top core exercises routinely performed by gymnasts. The hollow position, which this movement replicates, engages the exact muscles that need to be strengthened to relieve lower cross syndrome pain. While laying flat on your back, focus on pressing your low back firmly into the ground. This simple cue engages the deep abdominal muscles. It should be more difficult to keep the low back pressed to the ground as the feet are lowered. Like in all movement practice, maintaining proper form is the most critical element. A recommended goal to aim for with this exercise is 3 sets at 60 seconds each with a 2 minute break between sets. Low back pain during this movement is a signal that there is not enough of a posterior pelvis tilt (in other words, PRESS your low back into the ground!)

Their decisions must have been based on sound science. This is a great read that gives you direct insight into the latest and greatest governmental nutrition recommendations. "The federal government on Tuesday issued new dietary guidelines that keep current allowances for sugar and alcohol consumption unchanged, rejecting recommendations by its scientific advisory committee to make significant cuts."

Rick’s main goal in life is striving towards being the best version of himself both mentally and physically. Back in high school, he had a passion for science, fitness, martial arts, singing and theater. He worked his way through the ranks in Tae Kwon Do to black belt and state champion in kickboxing for two years. During his undergraduate studies he majored in chemistry and philosophy, but also minored in dance. After graduating, he joined the United States Navy and was commissioned as a SWO Nuke for 4 years. He left the military to further his studies in chemistry, and successfully defended for his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry and Biochemistry from Syracuse University in 2019. He is currently working as a Materials Research Scientist for Indium Corporation developing sintering, jetting, metal casting, and nanofoil projects. All of this was not enough for him, and his desire/passion to work with and help others guided him to Co-Movement. He has been training and researching exercise science since he was 16, and has trained many of his friends and colleagues throughout the years. He also recently completed the Co-Movement 12 week trainers training program.
