How do we look after them? Well it's quite simple really. To begin with you just have to strip things right back to basics. To begin with you just start balancing on one leg. Once you get good at that you can start to move your upper body in the 3 planes of motion (forward/back, side to side, rotation) whilst standing on one leg. Then you can start to do that with some weight, next start hopping on one leg. Then start hoping in 3 planes of motion then do that with some weight. Next you can start to do some of the normal exercises you've done for years, but this time do them on one leg. This pathway will help increase ankle, hip, knee and back strength, flexibility and control.
To work on shoulders and neck you just need to think about those 3 planes of motion again. Just moving a joint up and down (as most conventional shoulder exercises do) isn't enough. You need to adapt those conventional exercises into ones that utilise all three planes of motion. Doing so will greatly increase strength, flexibility and joint control.
This is such an important aspect we'd urge you all to get in touch to work on your joint strength, even for just one session to show you the moves!
