For our August First Friday’s Wellness Cafe with Lauren and Maria there was a posture clinic to start then an informative overview of one of the three macros: protein.
Maria begin the Wellness Cafe demonstration 3 ways to use an everyday object, in this case a broom, to help improve posture and mobility in three activities: holding a standard plank, during a hip hinge movement, and using the broom handle to help open up and increas mobility in the shoulders.
Next, Lauren led an overview on protein and provided the group with an explanation of what this important macro does for your body, what foods you can find it in, and recommendations for how much protein you should incorporate into your diet.
Here are slides of Lauren’s presentation, for our September 9th Wellness Cafe session, Lauren will build off this with another macro. Maria will lead another demonstration, this time helping educate on strength training from home with tips on what kinds of weights to use, grips, and recovery time.
