This morning my pregnant friend texted me: "Do a blog on reducing crotch bone pressure."
We've know each other awhile, so she can send me texts using the word "crotch".
"Sitting in my therapy chairs are killing me."
And, just to be clear. She's not getting hours of therapy a day, but giving it -- to little kids. Which means she spends her day in those little kid chairs, probably with her tailbone tucked under.
I texted back "Sure. I'll film you a video you can do in between patients."
FYI, I have a 2000 word article due today on the biomechanics of the psoas muscle. You know, for pay. And when I have such deadlines, my day looks like the exact opposite as you would assume it should.
What I've done so far:
1. Sleep in.
2. Make a spinach lasagna for my sister's family. And a separate one for her in-laws.
3. Volunteer to make a vlog post.
4. Walk to teach class.
5. Teach class.
6. Film a video.
7. Beg Wonder-Husband to edit video (while I teach class).
8. Walk home from class.
9. Say "I'm starving" 24 times while not making anything to eat.
10. Type this blog.
You can see that I'm a bit of a procrastinator.
So, without further ado -- because I need to finish the psoas article and eat something -- an exercise vlog.
This is one of my favorite moves to do throughout the day. If you sit or even stand a lot at work, you need to open those hip joints! This movement combines pelvis relaxation with transverse plane rotation -- something we don't get a lot of in our modern lifestyle. You just need a chair and a few minutes to really hit a lot of neglected tissue. Great for pregos or anyone with low back, hip, sacral, or pelvic pain.
Oh, and P.S. Keep your feet straight and thighs externally rotated for even deeper work!
After watching this video it is clear that what I didn't do today was
2. Brush my hair
3. Do laundry
And can I just say that the grey stretch pants and black shirt I am wearing are both 14 years old?
