In this quick video my amazing physical therapist and friend Dr. Justin Jellin of G Sports Physical Therapy in San Francisco shows us his three most effective stretches for tight wrists, hands and forearms. If your hands and wrists are tight and tired from typing, texting, lifting, etc, try each of these three stretches for 30s two times each side (unless they cause pain and in that case rest and give him a call).
From the minute I met Chris C. I was impressed. This former college athlete turned white collar finance professional has some very admirable goals and a commitment to them that is inspiring. He wanted help developing a program that would make his body more mobile, more endurant and strong for the long haul. There’s nothing wrong with aesthetic goals. I have them myself. But it’s uncommon these days for a man in his 20s to tell me he wants to move better, longer and stronger. That he doesn’t want his desk job to destroy his body and that he just wants to be the best version of himself possible. I am so lucky to work with clients like Chris (including his roommate and gym buddy Chase) and I’m honored he took time from his busy life to share his thoughts and reflect on his progress with me for this Q&A.
The East Coaster in me rolled my eyes when my friend Kat told me about “bagels” made from only fat free Greek yogurt and self rising flour. I was like, “gross”. But as usual, Kat was right. These little suckers from Weight Watchers were not only easy to make (and you know I don’t bake) but they are actually really tasty. This recipe makes four little bagels and they keep well in the fridge. Depending on how you top them you can serve and eat them plain or you can add some low calorie shmear, smoked salmon, etc. Enjoy!
