A sedentary lifestyle has robbed us of our natural range of motion, leaving us with stiff bodies, bad posture and chronic back pain. In this revolutionary new approach to fitness, model and TEDx sensation Roger Frampton becomes your personal trainer at home.
You can achieve every exercise in this book at home and without the need for equipment. Use mats, carpets, rugs, blocks, books and chairs in some exercises to make them a little easier, and there’s nothing to stop you starting right now! It’s all about your body.
Beginning with a basic squat (which we as children do naturally but then as adults struggle to perform), The Flexible Body: Move better anywhere, anytime in 10 minutes a day guides you through a series of positions, stretches, rolls and balances that re-train your body to move like it once could. Half the exercise in the book are static and half are slow and controlled movements that help you to develop strength and flexibility in the right places. Working at this pace gives you time to focus on being fully conscious, as well as allowing you to find flaws and weaknesses in your movement.
With a thorough explanation of the philosophy and science behind the method, plus hacks for incorporating it into your day-to-day life, this book will inspire you to put down the weights, forget HIIT, reclaim your body and achieve a level of fitness you've only ever dreamed of.
Roger Frampton has been an international model for over a decade appearing in ad campaigns for Ralph Lauren, Orlebar Brown, River Island, Aquascutum & Jack Wills. With over 15 seasons of catwalks in Milan, New York, Paris & London Roger realised the importance of conscious movement and created 'The Frampton Method'. His method features a combination of bodyweight exercises mixing aspects of gymnastics and yoga, with his training technique being featured in The Sunday Times, Grazia, Esquire, Elle, Men's Health and GQ.
Roger stood on the TED stage for his talk ‘Why sitting down destroys you' where he discusses how attitudes towards exercise in the fitness industry are flawed. The talk has now accumulated an impressive 1.8 million views to date.
