Back in June I was talking to some family friends that mentioned they get cramps in their lower legs. This is an issue that I know plagues a lot of people and it wakes them up in the night. Nobody needs an interruption in their beauty sleep, so I am here to give you all the info you need to know about why you can get a cramp and how to stop it with diet and movement.
I had a conversation with one of my clients about his squatting and correct form last week. I have seen a lot of variations but many of them are bringing people closer to injury. I find that many people will sacrifice their form in order to "get lower" or do what the other people at the gym are doing.
Last year I ran the Brooklyn half marathon with my husband and felt so accomplished that I took a break from running regularly for about a year. I believe that life has ebbs and flows and you can't do everything all the time. I spent more time sitting, studying, and writing and less time moving around on my feet.
I was talking to my mother the other day and she was telling me all about how she walks on her lunch hour at work and then again at night with my father before dinner. She mentioned that when she walks at work, she goes up the stairs, down the hallway and then up to the next floor until 30 minutes have passed.
Have you ever worked very diligently on something and seen the results in more places than the main goal? Take for instance changing the way you eat in order to lose weight. You have a goal to wear a smaller size. Along the way to that goal, you notice that not only are you looking better, but you are also feeling better too! I had a similar experience to the work I have been doing and it's simply amazing!
While riding the subway the other day on yet another delayed train, my attention was drawn to the feet of the woman standing in front of me. Her toes were white from gripping the floor. At first, I thought it was because she was in heels, but when I looked at the toes of her friend in flats and saw that they were also white, I knew that it wasn't from the shoes.
