Thought some of you might appreciate this video, it may be something you want to work toward achieving in 2013.... getting yourself off the floor without the use of your hands and knees.
I've always had a bit of a problem with it, due to my scoliosis, but when I fractured my arm and badly sprained my left wrist, I was made more acutely aware of how reliant I was on my left hand/arm to help me up from the floor.
Video is in Spanish?, English subtitles below.
Here's a link to an article on the subject:
....and if you think this is easy, here's your next challenge... check out what this woman is doing at the 2 minute mark... just slide the cursor there...
Thx all of you who have commented!
Berry4 has mentioned this youtube which is even harder, in my opinion, to doing the move that the woman was doing at the two minute marker in the Amazing Abs video, cuz the woman in the video I posted, uses the side of her knee to get up... which would prolly score her a point on the rating system! LOL
Here's Berry4's link, hyperlink for those interested... this woman does use a weight, which hmmmm may act as a counterbalance?
Even so, she's awesome... they both are... I will never look like that but its not going to stop me from trying to get up and down off the floor without using my hands. Right now when I try to sit on the floor, I fall the last 10 inches and roll on my back like a bug! ha A pox on my dern Scoliosis! ha
Special thx to Berry4!
Hugs to all...
