Primary Back Stretch, PBS, three simple words and 3 easy alphabets, but so very important.
It is our warm up, parts and bits of it can be a cool off for any moves. Mastering PBS, you have learned half of T-Tapp's standing moves.
If you have back pain, go for it morning, mid-day and before bed. If you are sick, do one and it will drain you sinus and lymph nodes. If you don't feel like doing a workout, doing a PBS makes you all righteous that you have done something for the day.
It is easy on time, just 3-5 mins (depends on the version).
It is difficult (yes, Total Superslow), yup, I did half of a PBS on Instructional 1 and called it quits in July 2010, but I got back to it the next day. After 18 months, I am still learning and trying to perfect my PBS form.
In fact, there are so many versions of it and I am going to do one per day and see if I find anything new after 18 months.
So, how about a PBS today? Better yet, have you learn something new about your PBS for the day?
For the next week, I am going to concentrate on PBS:
Monday, I am going to start with the mother of all PBS, PBS from Total Superslow.
Tuesday, I will do the PBS from the book.
Wednesday, I will do the PBS from More Instructional and Instructional 1.
Thursday, I will do the PBS from Tempo BWO+
Friday, I will do the PBS from Ladybug Standing
Saturday, I will do the PBS from Barefoot BWO+
Sunday, I will do the PBS from Maxi Max Extreme
Do you want to compare notes, compare aha's? Do you have questions about the tweaks in the Tempo and Ladybug, come on ahead (if I don't know, we will find a trainer), we can have a full week of PBS fun.
One thing, do try to get a mirror at hips level (or video yourself), you will be amazed and surprised, at least I was last week when I video myself at PBS.
