The first summer Olympics I remember watching is when Nadia Comăneci became the first gymnast to be awarded a perfect score of 10 in an Olympic gymnastics event. My sisters and I couldn’t do any of the gymnastic movements we saw but we could do a pretty good imitation of the final “Ta-daa!” with our arms overhead and our chest thrown forward.
Most of us lack mobility in our hips. And because our hips are tight and we grip our tailbones, we bend forward from our backs and not from the hips. Unfortunately, rounding the back at the ribs and the low back causes long term negative effects on our backs.
