With mindful, conscious movement, you can gain phenomenal core and full-body strength, increased flexibility and even lose weight, all without leaving the house. In just 10 minutes a day and with no specialist equipment, you can build a fun and achievable home exercise routine tailored to your fitness and flexibility level. Inspired by yoga practitioners and Olympic gymnasts, and in consultation with leading figures from both fields, Roger has developed a simple but highly effective set of exercises known as the Frampton Method, designed to de-restrict your body and help you reach optimum strength and flexibility with no need for any kind of equipment, weights or gym membership. There is also a thorough explanation of the philosophy and science behind the Frampton Method, plus hacks for incorporating it into your day-to-day life, this book will inspire you to put down the weights, reclaim your body and achieve a level of fitness you've only ever dreamed of.
Ever wake up in the morning with aches and pains? Does your job keep you hunched over a desk for hours a day? Perhaps you are a runner with a good level of fitness but can barely touch your toes? If the answer is yes - it's time to STRETCH! There has been a lot of emphasis from both public health campaigns and the wellness industry on getting people moving 'more'. We all now know that we are supposed to do 10,000 steps per day and many of us possess some sort of wearable tech to track how much distance we cover; however, how we move is still somewhat ignored. Due to the sedentary nature of modern life, the destiny for many is muscles and joints that slowly tighten over the years. All of a sudden you realise that you can't sit comfortably in a squat, touch your toes or get up from sitting on the floor without using your hands. In life, if we don't use the movement, we lose the movement. In STRETCH, professional movement coach Roger Frampton is here to tell you that flexibility and mobility should really be likened to brushing your teeth daily, on waking up and before you sleep. His TED Talk Why Sitting Down Destroys You has been viewed over 3 million times and his revolutionary approach to functional fitness emphasises the importance of conscious movement. Combining light bodyweight exercises, gentle twists and elongating stretches, STRETCH is a daily programme of seven essential movements (with three variations of each) to help combat the key areas of the body that have lost functionality, improve overall wellbeing and fight the negative effects of a sedentary lifestyle. All without a gym membership. This book has definitely made me rethink my priorities when it comes to a workout - it's the perfect way to start your mobility journey! - Tom Daley, Olympic swimmer
