Movement Solutions For The Under-Motivated Areas Of The Body

If we were to think of exercise as food, a five-mile run might be a steak.  It is full of nutrients and can be very satisfying, but without side dishes, it's not a complete meal.  If you ever eat steak, you'll soon miss important vitamins and begin feeling the symptoms.  Similarly, your current workout might be rich in certain "movement nutrients" and lacking in others.

This is why biomechanist Katy Bowman has created a movement supplements in the form of two new DVD releases; "Nutritious Movement's Daily Movement Multivitamin" and Nutritious Movement for a Healthy Pelvis".  Each includes exercises, stretches, and alignment tips to help all bodies to improve the nutrition of their current movement diet.

The DVDs are available now for $19.95 at Amazon.com and www.nutritiousmovement.com/shop.  They may also be downloaded ate NutritiousMovement.com.


According to Katy Bowman, M.S.,  "We tend to focus on a few exercises in hopes to melt pounds away or chisel six-pack abs.  Despite our best intentions to exercise, whether it be running marathons, practicing yoga, or winning the CrossFit games, certain areas of the body remain under-moved.  These moves are designed to decrease typically sedentary areas within the body, and help users feel better in their bodies at any age and any fitness level."

As the name implies, the "Daily Movement Multivitamin" fills in the movement gaps left by many conventional fitness programs.  Sore feet, headaches, backaches, aching knees, digestive problems, cardiovascular disease, and so many more ailments can be symptoms of a poor movement diet.  This DVD hits the reset button to help nourish what Katy considers the "sticky spots" in the body.  It includes a standing and a floor sequence, a posture recap, a five-step alignment lesson and a printable exercise routine.  Some props are helpful including a chair, bolster or towel, a yoga block or thick book and a yoga strap (or even a long scarf).  It is appropriate for all age and fitness levels.

According to Voices for PFC, 25% of women 20 and older suffer with pelvic floor disorders. And it isn't only a problem for women.  "Nutritious Movement for a Healthy Pelvis" take a whole-body, holistic approach to improving the strength, mobility, health and function to the pelvis naturally.  You won't find any kegels spot-treating the issue here.  The DVD provides six foundational exercises, five advanced exercises, a three-minute flowing routine and a printable reference guide.  The same props are useful.  It will benefit men and women of all ages and fitness levels.

  6. I do have a couple of under moved areas of the body. I should have had the tones up by now, but I totally slacked on pushing myself this year.

  11. I like that it fills in the gaps. I have sore feet sometimes when I work a long day...if something would help with that beside a good old fashioned foot rub, I'd be interested!
