This is super helpful. Thank you, Richard! I was trying to walk while moving the arms and couldn't get the rhythm going at all. (A variation of my problems when I try to walk and chew gum at the same time.) I think the high-stepping in place is a much better way to start.

No problem at all Adam, glad it helps.

I found that walking in place really helped to get a rhythm going. Like in the video you can then add some rotations on the spot to load the ankles, knees and hips differently - as well a core rotational component.

I demo'd the base position - arms moving in a front raise action .... overhead - hardest as arms start above the heart .... and curl - almost an active rest, but allows for increased marching speed.

You can also do lateral raise, upright row, shoulder height punch and a kind of front raise with palms up, crossing mid line.

I mentioned using a 5-3-2 set up each day (Monday 5 minutes, Tuesday 3 minutes etc)....the 'pick one movement and do 100 reps' is also a really good idea....as is the marching a number of steps to match your age.

Any questions, please ask.
