Sometimes the most supposedly simple movements are unattainable
Sometimes the most supposedly simple movements are unattainable by those people who consider themselves to be fit. There is a raft of studies, including evidence from ‘Blue zones,’ areas around the world where people commonly live to over 100 in remarkable health, to suggest that being able to get up off the floor, and doing it on a regular basis, is very good for our health and longevity.
Many people will use one or two methods to get up off the floor. This is very limiting. How fragile is your ability to stand up?
What happens if you can’t use your hands? Can only use 1 leg, can’t bend your knees? Can you still get up off the floor? At what point do you become trapped and dependent on external assistance?
This particular technique is dependent on a range of different abilities..hip and ankle mobility, spinal flexion, muscular, and ligament strength, skill, balance etc…
I’ve found about 30 different ways to get up off the floor. I’ll be posting some of these…see how many ways you can find. Explore your own body and expose your weeknesses…then work on them!
