Click, crack, pop! Can you relate? Yes, you can…
Click. Click. Double click. No, it’s not my computer mouse. It’s my feet! What’s your superpower?
No, it doesn’t feel as bad as it sounds. Actually, it doesn’t feel like much at all, usually. But, yeah, it sounds pretty bad, doesn’t it?
Not to be confused with crunching knees. A more dramatic sound effect, certain to terrify innocent bystanders.
Rest assured, no joints are dislocated in the process…
Yes, there’s a pattern here. Any joint that can pop, probably will pop.
100% chance of perspiration precipitation…Slip, slide, squeak.
Don’t let the term fool you. Few things are more therapeutic. In fact, it’s a daily necessity, like food, water, and YouTube dance video binges.
Almost as essential as cracking your back. If it doesn’t happen during class, you will make it happen on your own, whatever it takes…
