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…
