The Importance of Total Body Strength

Strength is vitally important. Strong muscles give us our posture and help us manipulate objects, move around however we wish, and fully participate in the activities we enjoy.

Strong muscles have another important function, too — they help keep our bones strong. Muscles pull on bones; bones respond by becoming more mineral-dense. Strength training is key to slowing bone loss as we age.

In this video, Brian Donahoe, Master Motion Mechanic at Human Garage, coaches us through five exercises designed to build total body strength using bodyweight resistance and kettlebells.

We will learn:

  • Crocodile Breathing
  • Latissimus Dorsi (“Lats”) Activation in Plank
  • Hollow Hold for Low Back Control
  • Deadlift
  • Kettlebell Swing

It’s Never too Soon to Start

While strength training was once seen as an activity for gym rats, we now know that maintaining a minimum level of strength can improve our lives and extend our abilities into old age. Remember, though, the sooner you begin, the less ground you’ll have to make up. So if you have a few minutes, click play and give it a try right now.

Human Garage
Unlike traditional modalities for managing pain, we find and treat the origins of your misalignment to maximize your body’s innate capacity to heal.

At Human Garage, we are not your standard wellness center. We pursue the power of alignment to get your mind and body functioning and moving better. How? We use our intimate knowledge of the internal fascial network to locate where stress, trauma and tension is being stored in your body—the underlying origins of your misalignment. We then systematically release those areas to get you on the path to optimal alignment.

Our approach is based on a sound belief in the connection between body and mind. We offer a variety of services that work in tandem to bring both back into balance.

In addition to our Full Body Release + Realignment, we offer ongoing personalized Motion Retraining, Rehab + Performance Optimization plans to help clients who want to continue performing at an optimal level, or who are recovering from injuries, surgeries and chronic pain.

No wellness plan is complete without addressing nutrition. Our Nutritional Alignment Specialists can help identify any internal chemical imbalances due to poor hydration or dietary/lifestyle habits.
