This exercise of qi gong focuses on exercising the lower body, particularly the legs. The bouncing motion used will greatly strengthen the thighs and calves as the body weight is lifted up and down. The up and down motion also requires the hips, abdomen and lower back to exert effort. Over time, performing this exercise will greatly strengthen and tone the calf muscles, giving them excellent definition.
Plus, the Achilles tendon is stretched out, helping to improve flexibility and mobility in the feet and ankle, which are also put to work in performing this exercise. If you feel that you need additional resistance, you can add ankle weights to the legs. The exercise will also stretch and lengthen the spine, helping to tone and relax the back muscles. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, this exercise is believed to activate the body’s natural immune system defenses so that many diseases are removed from the body.
From the starting position, called ‘wu ji,’ lift and move the right foot forward so that it rests about one foot ahead of the left foot. Do not put the right foot flat upon the floor – instead, put the toes on the floor, the heel lifted up off of the floor. However, don’t put all of your body weight on the right foot, but keep it on the left foot. Make sure that your left knee remains bent. At this point, the arms should be placed next to the hips and the hands should be flexed at the wrist so that the palms are facing down.
Gently bend both of your knees, moving your body down. Don’t bend at the waist, but simply bend the knees so that the entire body is shifted downwards. Press the palms down as if you are trying to push them to the floor. The key to the exercise is that as the body moves down, centered over the left leg, the heel of the right foot lifts up off of the ground. Then, as you slowly straighten back up, the heel of the right foot moves back to the ground. The left foot should be kept flat on the floor during this motion.
You will feel a great deal of stretching in your front calf muscle and thigh muscle, and your back leg will be working in its entirety in order to hold your balance during the exercise. Control your breathing so that you are inhaling as you move the body up and exhaling as you move the body down.
This position can be rather strenuous, so if you can’t do the up and down movement at first, start by simply keep your weight on your back leg and flex the forward heel upwards and downwards. You will still feel a significant stretch in your calf. As you grow stronger, you may then try to add the up and down movement.
The movement will deepen as you improve, but be sure that you don’t bend your back leg too far. Your left knee should not be bent so that it extends past your toes. After eight repetitions of the stretch, return to the starting position. Then start on the left side by extending your left foot forwards and repeating the series of stretches.

Stem cells have the remarkable potential to develop into many different cell types in your body.
The product is a natural stem cell enhancer. It is derived from a plant. It stimulates stem cells in your bone marrow to travel throughout your body to support optimal organ and tissue function.
It means, the herbal based natural product urges stem cells to go where they are needed most in your body and repair any damage.
I had heard about the controversy over embryonic stem cells, but this product has nothing to do with that. This is all about stimulating the natural release of *your own* adult stem cells.
This was getting interesting.
Dr Joe Vitale tried this product - not for a day or a week, but for a month. It worked.
The company suggests you take two capsules in the morning. But
Dr Vitale wanted speedier results, so he took two in the AM and two in the PM.
Nothing happened the first two weeks, but he took it as an experiment, to see what would happen, if anything, and of course hope for the best.
He got better than the best.
At the two week mark he woke up one day and virtually all his health concerns were gone.
His asthma, allergies, anxiety attacks and aches from weight lifting had gone. Even his food sensitivies began to disappear.
He was still skeptical, but he wanted to investigate the product even deeper. So he got in touch with the scientist who had co-discovered the product. He’s a brilliant man from France, and was very generous with his time. He pointed out most of what he wanted to know was on the company’s website,
He went and looked. He saw the information, digested it, did a little more research on stem cell enhancers, and decided this was the health product for him to endorse. It’s called the SQOLA and its freeee.
So if you’re skeptical, but still hoping something will help you with your health, use the SQOLA to document your progress over four to twelve weeks. It’s explained at -
Finally, after researching the company and all the quack alert sites that blow the whistle on dubious claims, Dr. Vitale joined the company as a distributor. (For only $25.)
He thinks the marketing approach of having people who believe in the product actually profit from telling others about it is wise. It’s a win-win. You can join, too, under him, by going to –
Dr Vitale is not a medical doctor or scientist. He does not believe this is a magic pill that will cure everything, including emotional problems. But he has shared his story with you because he knows how important your health is. Without it, you can’t enjoy life or accomplish much.
