Som Balsam för själen

Som Balsam för själen

Tillbaka till bergen, till det vackra landskapet och naturen i norra Italien. En plats att återfå balansen. Jag ringde upp en god vän och förklarade att jag behövde komma bort, ta en paus, på riktigt. Min själ behövde ny energi, jag behövde pussla ihop bitarna av...

Kryddor

Sedan en tid har jag varit fascinerad av kryddor och deras hälsoeffekter, och därför satt ihop en lista på välkända effekter av vissa härliga kryddor. Anledningen till detta är dels för att inspirera fler att ta utnyttja dessa effekter. Jag har förmånen att köpa dessa...

Finding the reason

As a physiotherapist our work is to help people with their pain most often, but also to improve the function of the part of the body affected. In our field of work (musculo-skeletal pain) it usually is quite easy to narrow down and find the area that is responsible...

The shoulder part VIII – The ”X”

This exercise is another one of my favourites for building better and stronger posture. While pulling the arms back it's extra important to keep the stately posture and add the active pull of the ribs down as not to overwork the upper back and push your ribcage...

Shoulder part VII – push up with pilates ball

I usually don't train pecs specifically at all as they're included in so many other exercises, and because I know I don't kneed to increase the imbalance of ventral and dorsal upper body more... Pecs are synergists in for example pull-ups, which is enough heavy...

Shoulder part VI – plank

Yes, there's a plank we can use for shoulder stability, it's all about what you focus on in the movement. This exercise is another that helps me keep the head of the upper arm centralised in the joint. In this specific plank, I want you to focus and start the movement...
