Hunching all day at a keyboard, tilting our heads forward over our phones, commuting long hours, slouching on the couch—our sedentary lifestyle has led to an epidemic of chronic pain. The consequences are poor postures that throw our bodies out of balance, causing the unnecessary stress and strain that compromise our joints, restrict organ function, and weaken our muscles. How we live in our bodies is fundamental to our overall wellness. The good news is that we all hold the key to a healthier body.
Dr. Eric Goodman has spent years studying human physiology and movement, and has helped people of all ages and occupations heal and correct lifelong debilitating pain. Called Foundation Training, his practical program trains the posterior chain muscles—shoulders, back, butt, and legs—shifting the burden of support to where it belongs: the large muscle groups.
The secret to Foundation Training lies in its simplicity: no gyms, no specialized equipment, no complicated stretches. By incorporating a series of powerful movements into your daily routine, you can move better, breathe better, and get back to using your body the way nature intended.
True to Form shows readers how to integrate Foundation Training successfully into everyday life—from playing with the kids to washing dishes to long hours in the office—transforming ordinary physical actions into active and mindful movements that help to eliminate pain, boost your energy, and strengthen your body. By harnessing the body’s natural movement patterns, you can be fit, healthy, and pain-free for good.
