Stretch Break: Side Bend and Simple Chest Stretch
Today’s stretch break will get you out of your seat for a side bend and simple chest stretch. When I do this in live programs I often hear “Oh, that feels good.” Always remember to breathe! And remember, stretching is feel-good living.
Note: The Stretch Break series is designed for the average healthy adult. Please always consult a physician before starting any exercise/movement program. If you have back or shoulder pain/injury these stretches may not be right for you. If you are unsure, please check with your doctor before participating in these exercises
More Feel-Good Living: Continuing to speak up about heart disease
Fellow bloggers Joanna at Fitness and Spice and Sahar from Fat Fighter TV have put out a call for support. I received the following email today from Sahar. Can you help speak up for heart disease?
On February 12, 2010 the American Heart Association and fitlosophy, inc. are asking bloggers around the globe to participate in Blog Your Heart Out Day! They’re asking us to SPEAK UP about the No. 1 killer of women — heart disease. You can help by:
- Encouraging your readers to join the Go Red For Women movement at the www.goredforwomen.org
- Challenging your audience to find a community of support, make healthy changes to their diet and exercise, get a heart check up, and speak up to their doctors about having a lipo-protein blood screening.
- Blogging how your life or someone you know has been impacted by heart disease
