Your day-to-day habits – whether they consist of frantic movement, heavy lifting, or static standing and prolonged sitting – all have adverse effects on your posture. Poor posture developed through our modern lifestyles leads to imbalances of flexibility and strength between various parts of your body. Left uncorrected, your postural imbalances are brought to the gym every time you come for a workout. To avoid injury and increase the effectiveness of your training, it is essential to address these imbalances with self-massage to ensure you are making sustainable progress towards your health and fitness goals.
You may be conscious of tightness in various muscles around your body, but chances are that there are other tight areas of which you are not aware. These tight spots in muscles are known as “latent trigger points”. These areas of tightness develop as a direct result of your daily postural habits and can contribute to injury if left untreated.
This 1-hour active workshop will teach you how to use self-massage techniques to identify and self-treat these latent trigger points, to increase your flexibility, reduce injury risk, and achieve long-term health and fitness success.
