Get that upper body rotating... (thigh slides video)
This exercise is called Thigh Slides and is an excellent way to explore the alternating forward motion as our torso counter rotates above our legs when walking or running. This elastic movement generates energy that is released into the forward propulsion and so takes some of the effort away from muscles such as the calves. It is an example of parts of the body moving independently of each other whilst maintaining a connection and collaborating to achieve efficient movement. It is also an excellent way to relax the back and help restore ease after long hours spent sitting. Please note that due to Covid-19 lockdown the video was made in my home rather than the Clinic.
