FMS-friendly Exercising

FMS-friendly Exercising
By Kelli Ellis

This slide show includes information on warming up, stretching, and the boosting of muscle, mood, and strength. Specific exercises that are given include the Isometric Chest Press, the Isometric Shoulder Extension, and calf stretches. Recommendations are made concerning the use of free weights. The arts of Yoga, Tai Chi and Qigong (pronounced chee-gong) are discussed and recommended for health of both the Mind and Body. The use of heat therapy and cold packs are also discussed.

How Much Is Enough?

Some research shows that exercising two days a week for 25 minutes daily can result in immediate improvement of fibro symptoms. If you’re just getting started choose a low- to moderate-intensity exercise such as mall walking, swimming, water aerobics (warm water is best), yoga, or tai chi. Always check with your doctor before starting any new exercise program.
