POWER BODY MECHANICS: how to find athleticism in everyday life.

Daily life is hectic.  Between working 8 or more hours, running home to take kids to numerous sporting events, and trying to keep your home and yard held together, there is very little time for ensuring our bodies are strong and healthy.  The ability to incorporate good body mechanics and strengthening into our daily life is a necessity now more than ever.   Power body mechanics combines awareness of good posture and whole body strengthening exercises into a program that can be done anywhere, anytime, without the need for additional exercise equipment. 

The following videos will teach you good posture, which can then be incorporated into a whole body strengthening program, that also includes core muscle and balance training.

Note that these exercises should all be pain free.  If you experience pain with any of the following exercises, please re-listen to the video to ensure you are using proper technique.  If you continue to experience pain while using proper technique, discontinue that exercise until you can review it with a Physiotherapist.
