book and video (B) DYNAMIC SELF-MASSAGE FOR FIT AND FAST WALKING by Jolene Steigerwalt and Elaine Ward
Do you want to walk faster, but your body keeps saying "No?" Do stiff, sometimes achy muscles get in your way? Jolene Steigerwalt and Elaine Ward have teamed up to bring you a much needed book and video called Dynamic Self-Massage for Fit and Fast Walking. You learn how to keep your muscles working fully and reliably.
The book explains the primary muscles involved in fast walking. It describes how the wear and tear of repetitive activity can gradually limit flexibility and how to prevent this loss. Many illustrations help you visualize where muscle problems occur and where to treat them.
The video shows Dynamic Self-Massage in action. It shows you how to apply self-massage to meet your personal needs. You are shown many ways of caring for your muscles starting with your arms down to your feet. Some ways are gentle; others are more aggressive. Their variety allows you to discover those that are the most effective for you.
Whether you use Dynamic Self-Massage after exercise for injury prevention or use it to get rid of an existing problem, your muscles will be grateful for the care you give them. You need healthy muscles that perform well to achieve your walking goals. Dynamic Self-Massage offers you a way of nurturing your body so you can walk fit and fast throughout your life.
