Can you guess what the first part of the body is to adapt to exercise?
Hint: it’s actually not your muscles…
The first part of the body to respond and begin to adapt to a new movement pattern is actually your nervous system.
While it may take a few weeks for your muscles to actually get stronger, you’ll actually feel an improvement in your movement patterns much sooner.
Practicing a new movement pattern actually allows your muscles to get “better” at it… aka more precise and more efficient.
I think this is super cool. Our bodies are always looking for ways to help us and stabilize… sometimes we just have to know the right “hack” (in this case, the right movement pattern to practice).
This is so important for all the muscle groups that help stabilize the SI joints, including:
I’m so excited to share the various strategies and hacks I’ve learned for stabilizing the SI joints!
I have so much info coming up— stay tuned!
