Lifting, loading, unloading, carrying into house, carrying up the stairs – all take some degree of strength to accomplish. We need some form of structured strength training to ensure we remain free from lower back pain, knee pain, shoulder pain and many of the other maladies caused by our societal shift towards a more sedentary lifestyle.
Having the desire to skip, jump on a trampoline, ride a scooter, or practice a sport with your children can be enjoyed if we have the strength to support the movement. It is almost impossible to do if we are burdened with lower back pain, knee pain or shoulder pain?
Pack, unpack, the road trip, the flight, putt putt, water parks, theme parks, walking, standing in lines, hotel beds – all can be exhausting. Being strong contributes positively to those activities and helps prevent injury. It is hard to enjoy the trip if you are suffering from lower back pain, knee pain, or shoulder pain.
Being strong supports and inspires our ability to be confident.
Strong muscles inspire creative thinking, creative movement, and creative activities.
Balanced strength supports not only necessary, but spontaneous movement. Many careers lead to low back pain, knee pain, or should pain.
