Taking the Right Steps with Dr. Erson Religioso

“If you did a lot of gardening, and then you did a huge kettlebell workout where you’re doing a bunch of swings, or a lot of dead lifts - you’re essentially doing a lot of forward bending, a lot of spinal unloading...Then you went and you binged on the latest Netflix  show and you watched like 3 hours of that. You essentially just never did enough upright, you never did enough of the opposite. That’s when the cup overflows.”
