This morning, I picked up my Chi Ishi, and tried using it three times... and my back locked up.
Okay, time to address exercise!
First exercise. - toe grab.
Get out of your chair.
Take off your shoes
grab your big toes.
Hold. Make sure your toes are on the floor, and not lifted.
If you've been sitting too long, you'll probably feel every vertebrae pop one after another. Whew!
Next. Tummy Frownies
Make SURE your lungs are half empty when you do this. It creates downward pressure that can lead to hemorrhoids if your lungs are full!!
While sitting, Tighten your abdomen muscles.
Hold your breath
BEND FORWARD slightly.
HOLD THE PRESSURE!
I got the name from a calvin & Hobbes comic.
Believe it or not, you can get a 12 pack doing this enough.
Enough repetitions and you'll need to learn to speak with an Austrian Accent.
Lie on your back.
sit up rapidly,
Swat your hand across your legs to the outside.
do 30 per day, 15 per hand.
you need three chairs.
Feet on one chair
each hand on a different chair.
Do ten pushups.
This will do for now.
