The Problem With Most Workouts

A Deceptively Simple Thing Most People Do That Slowly Destroys Their Health

 

I don’t care whether it’s with a personal trainer or a well-meaning fitness boot camp. Most people are exercising out of a form where it makes the optimal benefits of the workout impossible.

And worse, reinforces negative movement patterns, adds increased stress on joints, and strengthens dysfunctions.

If they would just take a little bit of time to get their body straight before they start to strengthen and condition, the benefits they’ll receive will be more than what they had ever imagined.

They’ll get more out of the immediate workouts, and the long-term health benefits will be the real surprise. And really, it’s the long-term health benefits they should be after in the first place.

So what are these long-term health benefits?

First and foremost, it’s the ability to move well into your later years.

What good is it to work out if it ends up damaging your body?

Worse than continually pounding on asphalt and concrete as their primary running surfaces, I see people running with a grimace on their face…And they’re barely running. You can probably walk faster. And their form is awful.

Something is wrong with their bodies, and they’re not listening.

Guess what? In the vast majority of cases, it’s going to get worse.

But they love to tell people, “I just ran 5 miles.”

If that’s you in any way, please stop.

If you wake up consistently with a stiff body, and have to lubricate yourself to get moving every day in only your 50s and 60s, is that really optimal health?

I don’t imagine this is why you’ve been working out.

The best of intentions does not mean the best results.

You can be sincere in your efforts to exercise and eat well, and be sincerely wrong.

So how do you make sure you don’t fall into this trap?

It’s very simple…

Living Longer Without Living Older…

Painful Questions You Better Answer…

Woman Jogging On Beach

According to new research findings from the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research, the average life span should reach above 80 for most developing countries.

Nothing new though really.

We know this. We know about the medical advances that help prolong life. The threat of wild animals killing man is essentially non-existent in modern societies (man killing man in some cities is another story).

I can tell you without question, at Pure Health Performance I see younger and younger people with postural alignment issues already leading to compensations (the wrong muscles doing a job). So you can imagine what the VAST majority of people over 40 look like. Far away from the Optimal Design they were born with.

Years and years of compensating muscles taking a beating while the big muscles lie dormant. Not only does living this way make life more difficult just getting around, you look worse too.

Will you live a life of manipulation and control?

For many, the answer will be “Yes.” They will be hooked on so called anti-depressants (with side effects of suicide?), pain killers, and surgeries. It’s my guess that many people will live the last 30-40 years of their lives hardly functional.

You’ll see people shuffling around at a snails pace, or more likely zipping by on scooters. We’re going to look like an overpopulated nation of scooters. The scooter insurance business will boom.

This reliance on more modern conveniences will lead to even more limited lives those last 30-40 years.

Oh, not limited visually, but limited in real hands on experiences. There’s a difference between watching a sport, and playing a sport. There’s a difference between sitting on the sand at the beach, and jumping in the ocean and then sitting on the sand.

Let’s not even get into the cost and emotional charged debates over health insurance our continued path will surely take us.

There are tens of millions more cars (people) out their not taking care of their bodies. And there are tens of thousands of mechanics (doctors) who will be part of the system to repair them the medical system way. But repairing only does so much. And repairing and replacing perfectly designed parts (in most cases) will never produce the same result.

The body is a magnificent system that works as a whole, not as individual parts.

It’s my hope more people will get it that the best way is also the simplest way and the most cost effective way.

Here’s the catch though…

Do Your Shoulders Look Anything Like This?

The above shoulders are all too common today.

So what’s wrong with them? I mean this guy looks jacked ripped right?

That’s great, but…

He can’t fight the fundamental laws of anatomy and the body’s Optimal Design.

And if you can see the backs of your hands while standing normally, there’s an injury waiting to happen. At the VERY least, you’ve just amped up the odds of sustaining an injury. Period. Not open for debate.

This football player, unless he’s stretching, has shoulders so locked forward it’s impossible for him to have full rotational capacity.

If he’s not able to use his shoulders optimally, then all the added bulk won’t stand a chance when he’s put in a compromised position.

That might be when he has to reach back to make a tackle – placing his shoulder in a more vulnerable position if hit. I would say fortunately he’s a defensive back. If he were a linebacker or lineman, he’d likely be exposed to more opportunities of force at a reach behind position.

And if he were a quarterback, baseball player, or tennis player – he’d be in worse shape. Any type of throwing motion with shoulders locked forward in this position is especially problematic.

Now, you may look at yourself as an athlete (or non-athlete), and say, “Well, I don’t look that extreme.”

And that’s great. Just be honest with yourself.

The great news for the athlete above, or anyone, is this forward position of the shoulder can be corrected. And really pretty quickly.

How would he do that?

Do This And Never Need A Hip Or Knee Replacement

How is it that in just the last decade, we’ve grown to think nothing of hearing that someone is getting a hip or knee replacement?

Well, some accounts say hip replacements have increased roughly 25% over the last decade – while knee replacements has doubled. So it’s clearly more commonplace. When something becomes more common, we psychologically think it’s normal.

“It’s just something that you do when you get older.”

People now talk about these surgeries as if they aren’t a big deal. Really?

Cutting your body open, taking your hip out, and replacing it with metal and plastic is not a big deal?

Well, not until it happens to you.

But what’s the question that we don’t hear being asked?

“What’s causing someone’s hip or knee to need replacing in the first place?”

“If a doctor says, ‘You need a knee replacement on your right knee, but your left knee is fine,’ why? Is the left knee special?”

This is a mistake.

Inflammation or swelling of a joint (arthritis) is merely a response. It’s a protective mechanism for the body. In the case of the hip, if there’s abnormal friction where the femur inserts in the hip socket, extra fluid is released.

Without the fluid, the join would damage itself. But without much room in the joint, the swelling is also obviously uncomfortable.

But make no mistake about it, this friction in the joint is caused by a musculoskeletal dysfunction.

The shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles are not aligned properly.
