Get up, get down. Here is another method to get off the floor. It requires good hip and ankle mobility, spinal flexion and leg strength. Can you do it?
Regular use of these techniques is like washing the joints. It clears out restrictions and nourishes the joint:
The cartilage of a joint has very minimal blood supply. Being living tissue, it needs to draw in nutrients and it does this through compression and distraction of the joint surface, almost sucking fluid and nutrients in. With poor mobility, we stop accessing parts of our cartilage which then start to degenerate.
As you can see in the video, this exercise takes my hip through a very large range of movement which helps maintain a healthy joint.
