    5 Essential Self Care Tips for Better Muscle and Joint Health

    5 Essential Self Care Tips for Better Muscle and Joint Health

    Think about how you are sitting or standing right now - and the posture you are in. Is this a posture you are frequently in? What muscles are activating in this posture? Over time the muscles that work more than others can exert pulling forces across our joints, causing imbalances we're not aware of - and that show up when we're training as well if we're not aware of them.
    Learn more about caring for your muscles and joints in today's episode, and how common movements create patterns so you can bring your awareness to your own daily postures and stay safe and strong while you're training.
    In this episode I'm exploring...
    ⭐️ Why stretching and mobility works benefits you around your workout sessions - especially in menopause
    ⭐️ The difference between mobility and flexibility and why they're both so important
    ⭐️ How our estrogen levels impact or muscle health
    ⭐️ Review of our daily posture and alignment, and how that impacts our movement patterns
    ⭐️ Bringing our postural awareness to our exercise routine
    ⭐️ Specific tips for supporting the rotator cuff, a commonly imbalanced joint

Love how real and authentic you are!

Truly more women need to hear what Bree is saying! Her message of health & wellness is NOT traditional and is going to help you uncover answers to questions and issues you've likely been struggling with for a long time. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia at a young age and have been through it all, it feels like. The mainstream medical system is not set up for us, but people like Bree are out there doing the work to help you discover true answers, and hope!

Excellent Content

I’ve known Bree (Coach Betty Rocker) since grade school. It’s interesting to me to listen to her share about her insecurities and struggles as she was growing up, because I always thought she was a COOL kid and often wanted to emulate her. I had no idea she was struggling. (You’ve always been FLAWSOME, Bree!) Beyond that though, this podcast has brought me so much. I am a woman, in my mid-forties, who has birthed two children and also undergone an abdominal hysterectomy. I’ve struggled with weight gain since, among other issues. This podcast has helped me to a) not feel alone in some of my feelings and struggles and b) provided valuable insights and resources to help me help myself with my health going forward. It’s worth the time and the listen, no matter what stage of life you are in!! I only wish I would have had some of this knowledge 5+ years ago!! 5⭐️

Yay! Finally a podcast 🤩

I love The Betty Rocker (Bree). I’m so grateful she created this awesome podcast. I’ve used her free workouts, paid programs and meal plans as well as used her protein powder and I love it all. She offers herself and her brand so genuinely and lovingly.

The episode with Amber Sears was not my favorite. Amber is so full of herself and talked a lot about how people who see photos of her and are triggered need to work on themselves. Gross.
