With Summer Vacation comes activity and excitement. We go on vacations, to the park, the pool, and lots of other memory-building sites. This busyness lulls us into the belief that we are being active, but when I look back at my actual amount of exercise, I am disappointed. I know I need to get back to a routine now that school is back in session.  

Over the past year, thanks to a friend, I have been exploring new exercises. Within most of the new classes I’ve taken I have encountered burpees. I don’t like them. I have caused myself two significant injuries because of these blasted things. The first injury was almost a year ago, but it left a bitter taste in my mouth and I have felt that I was not able to do this particular move without paying for it. I had convinced myself that I was somehow unable to do them because of my body. (You know how there are those who can’t run or swim or something because they are injured or will become that way quickly if they do said activity). However, I am also not one to accept that easily so frustration set in as I would attempt this exercise anyway and end up straining my back muscles or worse. Until recently, I learned there is a secret to ALL exercise you do. It doesn’t matter what the exercise is. All exercise has two focuses. After I tell you, most of you will probably say, “Duh, I knew that, Ashley.” But I am saying that I have been physically active all my life and I never really knew this!


Every exercise that is being performed should also entail focusing on activating your core. This takes practice and repetition before it becomes a habit, but as I have started focusing on my core in EVERY exercise, I am not seeing injury. I will say that moves that I used to do before at a fast pace have slowed down a bit as I am still actively concentrating on my core as well. With this all said, I know that I am working my core with each exercise, but I want to take time each day and focus on core-building workouts. Here is a link to some of my favorites.

I love Dr. Aaron as a Doctor and a friend.
He is very professional, and does a good job with adjustments, etc.
He is also very caring, easy to talk to if you have a problem.
