Balance is Crucial
If you push, then pull. If you pull, then push, in equal amounts. If you run, lift weights. If you lift weights, stretch too. If you stretch and do yoga frequently, lift weights. If you work hard, take time to rest and have fun.
Balance yourself left and right, front and back, up and down, and inside and out. The principle of balance is crucial when it comes to:
* Preventing Injuries
* Ensuring Proper Posture
* Improving Athletic Performance
* Preventing "Energy Leaks" from inefficient movement patterns
* Digestion, Immunity, and Pain Relief
Everything you do should encompass a sense of balance, particularly when it comes to training. For example, most of us sit, work on computers, watch tv, drive, and use our devices in a hunched forward position. In order to balance out the inordinate amount of time spent in this poor posture position, we should frequently stretch the other way (spinal extension) and exercise the back of the body- the back of the shoulders, the lower back, and the neck.
Balance is a crucial part of success.
