I have found that as I get older the need to spend a lot more time taking care of my body increases.
Does that make sense to you?
If someone told me this would happen to me 10 years ago I would have laughed in their face!
I was indestructible in my 30’s, even in my earlier 40’s.
Once I hit the magical age of 45, things changed a bit.
Back in the CrossFit and martial arts days (in my early 30’s and 40’s) I was able to charge hard throughout most of the week while recovering pretty quickly and working two full time jobs (The gym and my position as high school Athletic Trainer)
There was always the occasional elbow tendinitis from heavy pull ups, kettlebell lifting in combination with lots of grip work in BJJ and Judo.
Those days are gone!
In my late 40’s I can still charge pretty hard but have realized that I need to spend more time on recovery work.
For example, before picking up 420 lbs off the ground, I must spend at least 30 minutes prepping.
By recovery work I mean self myofascial release, soft tissue work via massage, mobility and muscle activation.
The combination of all the above has been a game changer in the way I feel, move, and train!
I thank my friend Jim Smith (Smitty) pictured above for enlightening me on the subject.
This is why I’ve decided to hold a free seminar on this subject.
If you know anything about Jim and I, you know that we truly care about our members, and will do ANYTHING to help them get better.
This is what makes US better then all other training facilities in our area and why we have been in business for over 15 years!
With all of that said…
Here’s a sneak preview of some of the material that will be covered on April 30.
