It’s not what you know, it’s how you use it.. Qigong works

October 1, 2018

The value of Qigong in a life situation:

In many of the Qigong forms (movements) there are squats. You can do deep squats or very shallow, depending on your condition and abilities.

Over the last few years I have been improving my ability to do deeper squats, working on thigh, knee and basically lower body strength, flexibility and controlled movement.

This past weekend we (my wife and I) poured a concrete pad, using thirteen 60 pound bags of Sakrete. We purchased 18 and moved them 5 times each, between purchase, transportation and working it.

With each bag, I used a squat, lifting with my legs. Today, my low back is fine, my legs are fine and overall feeling pretty good.

I credit the practice of Qigong to being able, at age 64, to power through a job of pick and shovel excavating rocky soil, shoveling gravel, tamping it by hand with a heavy metal plate, mixing and pouring / shoveling concrete and doing the finish work on the slab.

Most of this in bent over or squatting position.

Qigong works to help me do the things I do.

It may very well work for you.
