J-Lo, Shakira and KABOOMER cores

Most Ground Hog’s Day viewers of TV noticed two energetic Gen Xers named Jennifer Lopez and Shakira in the halftime of Super Bowl LIV.

So what’s my relevant point or points about their high energy motion and even pole-dancing?


Amidst the smoke but NO mirrors was a glance at what our KABOOMER cores can do with practice.

Our lumbo-pelvic-hip-complexes (LPHCs) are pivotal to many, many motions in our lives. Up, down, sideways and twisting motions. Sure, you can leave the pole work and play to others.  Yet you should not leave your core unattended. No way, no how.

A NY Times writer, Tara Parker-Pope, offered after that Miami halftime,

“it’s good to remember what healthy living and healthy aging is really about…” (and this is NOT about what others can do). In her words and mine, living long and living well is about one’s being “aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. Wellness is more than being free from illness; it is a dynamic process of change and growth.”

Now, back to our KABOOMER LPHCs as darned important enablers for living long and living well. Enablers for change and growth.

° Psoas, IO and TVAs !!

Strange names indeed for our  deep core muscles which serve to corset our midsection, flex our hips and stabilize our spines…

  • Sore lower back? Do an Oyster move or a happy Baby routine on the floor.

Strengthening your deep core often makes you a spry person in gym years.

  • Loins ache? Flex those hips with hip raises and standing hip cradles.
  • Dormant butt? Bird dog and dirty dog (fire hydrant) moves will help activate your Glutes.

For general twist and shout core work, invest in your World’s Greatest Stretches.  Jo Lo and Shakira probably do.

Be well, in this month for American Heart Health and in every month.

And be good to your core.

What a Ground Hogs Day it was!

Wasn’t it a fun February 2nd?

Super Bowl ads were the best that I can recall, including a Bill Murray laugher with a furry friend.

The LIV championship game was fun.  Good on the Chiefs Kingdom for crowning this 💯th NFL season with a 4th quarter rally I’ll long remember.

Coach Reid with his 222nd win on 2/2/20 was a coincidental alignment.

To cap yesterday’s specials, we had the Palindromic date of a century.

Right, 02-20-2020 is the lone palindrome date in this, our 21st century!

*Front to Back and Back to Front alignment of our KaBoomer bodies is special indeed.  Don’t let imbalances and/or misalignments in strength or range of motion hinder our qualities of KaBoomer life.

Be balanced and aligned on each and every day that is a special gift to share.

Be well,

Koach Dave
