How This Functional MD Incorporates Movement Into His Day
“We think we have to do all these sophisticated movements, but basic movement is probably more important than an hour at the gym anyway,” says Lipman. What he means is, strengthen the muscles you may no longer use on the daily—think squats, kettlebells, and the like. “We forget about these muscles we’re not using on a day-to-day basis,” Lipman notes, so perhaps focus on getting that strength back, rather than the complicated, intricate routines you might have loved at the gym. Said routines do, of course, have their time and place, but it’s a whole lot easier to fold in a basic squat as you WFH, no?
