A old friend of mine shared a picture of our varsity football team, from my junior year of High School, on social media a few days ago.
Man, that brought back some memories.
And it made me think about both how much has happened in the last 20 years, as well as how fast the time has flown by!
It also made me think about how, in those days, I would roll into the weight room, and start lifting … with no warm up whatsoever.
We did do some stretches as part of our training – like before practice and stuff – but they were far from targeted and specific. It was more like time to shoot the shit, than anything.
Thing was, it didn’t seem to really matter all that much.
At age 16, you body bounces back so fast from workouts, you are good to go.
But NOW … well, it’s is a totally different story.
For example, if I did the deadlift workout I did this earlier this morning without warming up, I would NOT be doing good right now.
And just as important, is proper flexibility and mobility work, after your workouts, and on your off days.
No one seems to have time to do it … but it’s KEY if you are looking to speed up recovery time, improve performance, and reduce chronic pain.
So that’s why I came up with this:
REGENERATE is a simple recovery program, designed specifically for lifters and athletes.
It is a combination of yoga poses, static stretches, core exercises and more combined into simple sequences that take 3 to 6 minutes to do, that require no special equipment.
Not to mention, they will also help you reduce chronic pain, improve mobility / flexibility, and feel amazing!
For example, there are sequences to help you recover from:
– A workout where you did a lot of KB swings
– A hardcore sprinting session
– A big overhead pressing day
And many more.
Check it out using the link below, and get it at special “pre-release” pricing while it’s up:
And remember that if you want to reduce and manage pain, that if you want to reach your goals faster, that if you want to improve everything you do – focus on recovery! It’s key!
