Each month at Move Move we set ourselves a Move of the Month Challenge. Throughout the month we focus on mastering that move. Sometimes our Move of the Month is just one move, other times it maybe a series of moves. But our aim is to progress in some way.
Our Move of the Month for November is Superman (or woman!). We picked this exercise to help all of you that spend more hours than you’d like stuck behind a desk. This move will challenge you to work your entire back chain, an area that gets weakened and lengthened (not in a good way) from spending hours on end sitting.
It’s worth taking a moment to remember that you’ve got tons of muscles in your back and these need to work. All too often when we see clients with back aches and pains the first thing they do is use it less. So the back gets weaker and weaker, and the aches and pains just persist.
Working those muscles in your back is vital. It’s about learning to work them in the right way and to ensure that everything else works with them.
Our move of the month will help with this as it gets everything on the back of your body working, from legs to butt to back to shoulders. Plus it fires up your deep abdominals (the ‘core’).
