March 29 – The Rocking
Even though I’ve never felt like I really *rocked* at this exercise (see what I did there?!), I still like it. The way it opens up the whole front of the body is fantastic. It feels good! The rocking part, though, is pretty tricky because you just want to let your head rock you via momentum. But you get so much more from this exercise by using the lift of the chest and the resistance of the legs and arms to get that rocking and lengthening.
I’m thankful for this exercise that I need to do more in my life because it gives me that counter movement I so badly need, especially with all of this screen time during the pandemic.
