Posture Focus: Stroller Walks
How do you feel after you push your stroller? Relaxed and loose or more tense than when you started? If you’re more tense, check out these tweaks.
(If you’re running with your stroller this is even more crucial!)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Pic 1: What to look out for:
Pic 2: ✅ The tweaks:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👉🏼 Walk closer to your stroller. Your stride might have to be shorter, but it will also help you naturally: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👉🏼 Stack your head, shoulders and hips in one line and pull your chin back. Imagine someone pulling a high ponytail on your head. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👉🏼 💰 Money tweak right here 💰 💰 Switch to an underhand grip. It will keep the tension out of your shoulders and let you push the stroller from your mid-back (where the work belongs!) Plus, you won’t feel the need to grip the hell out of the handle either. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👉🏼 Let your core engagement ebb and flow as you’re walking, engaging more when you are pushing more weight or need more tension in your core to support your spine. (I.e. don’t death-grip your abs while you’re walking!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Any other tricks you mamas have to share? Leave them in the comments below!
