Dave’s Professional Tips for Families

I suppose with Father’s Day coming up a few tips for the Dad’s would be warranted, but I think these tips will be good for us all.  So in keeping with the maternity theme and having little people around I have chosen:

Lifting & Back care:

  1. Maintain or develop a bit of fitness. It will help a few other areas (call it a short cut!)
  2. Breathing. This can provide the muscles with some oxygen but also make you a little stronger around your trunk.
  3. Posture. Says it all.
  4. Last one. Regular clients will have heard me say:- take 2 minutes to walk 2 meters. Try it when you put the kettle on and going to the fridge to get the milk!

Good Luck!
