Which exercise is the best one?

Isn’t the world of exercise, stretching and ‘self care’ sometimes overwhelming?

How do you know what to try, who to listen to and what to use?

Well, the answer is, it depends, and here’s why. 

There are so many exercises, stretches, props and tools out there. And not only that, there are so many different ways one single exercise can be done. 

What it boils down to is finding what works best for you. 

What does your body respond well to?

What have you tried already, and how did you feel during, immediately after and in the following days? Did you feel better? Great! Did you feel like crap? Maybe you need to tone down the intensity, speed, frequency, duration or resistance for a bit, or try something else altogether. 

If you’re getting conflicting advice from health care practitioners or gym leaders… great! You have options and guidance from different people with different skill sets! 

Now you get to decide what actually serves you. 

I know this is a frustratingly roundabout answer.. But the thing is, everyone’s body is different, AND your body is different day to day, month to month and year to year. 

An exercise that felt great last month may not work for you this month. That’s ok!

It comes own to your ability to feel your body, know what it’s telling you, and respecting it’s limits in that given moment.
