These exercises are as safe and simple as they come. They can be done by almost anyone of any level of physical capability and in our opinion they should be done by almost everyone. They are the base on which everything else in our program is built upon. Like the foundation of a building, they are all done while lying on the ground. If you do nothing else from the Basic 21, do the Foundation Five. Through these activities alone we have seen people make significant improvement in their kinetic hygiene, alleviate pain and improve the quality of their lives.
