Live Lean Nation, on today’s episode I’m sharing my new mobility program.
During my Live Lean journey, I’ve done a lot of things right.
However, if I had to go back and change one thing, it would be this:
I focused too much of my workout time on lifting weights and hiit training.
Now don’t get me wrong. Lifting and HIIT workouts are super important to Living Lean.
But here’s the thought process where many people (including myself) got it wrong.
They think…“I only need to lift weights, do cardio, and eat healthy to look and feel good.”
Here’s the PROBLEM:
What’s the point of having lean muscle and sculpted abs if you wake up every morning with stiff and achy joints that make even the simplest things in life, like picking up your grandkids, extremely painful.
Here’s a quick story:
Back in 2014, I experienced my first and only significant injury caused by training.
Over time, I developed a bad case of golfer’s elbow, a sharp pain where the tendons of the forearms attach to the bony bump on the inside of your elbow. Anytime I flexed my elbow (think bicep curls and pulling exercises) a sharp pain shot up my arm.
Super annoying and extremely painful.
So I spent thousands of dollars getting treated by chiropractors, physiotherapists, MAT practitioners, and massage therapists.
They all said I needed to take at least 6 weeks off from lifting to let it recover (it actually took a lot longer than this).
The thought of not being able to workout in the gym terrified me.
But, this nagging injury was a blessing in disguise because it highlighted a major weakness in my training.
I was strong…
I was muscular…
I had abs…
But I wasn’t flexible and mobile and this was hindering my recovery and leading to chronic injuries.
Good luck staying healthy and fit into your 50’s and 60’s with jacked up, creaky, and painful joints.
So during that 6 week break from lifting, I dug deep into training for mobility and learned how to prepare my body for peak performance, improved movement patterns, and ultimately provide better, long-term, healthy results.
Over the last 3 years, I documented a lot of my mobility journey on my vlogs and Instagram, which led to many of you asking what I was doing.
That’s when I had my epiphany.
I was lean and ripped, but I was beginning to get injured more frequently and wasn’t recovering as fast as I used to.
My goal was to MOVE BETTER, FEEL BETTER, and PERFORM BETTER than ever before.
After that I began allocating just 10 minutes a day to improving my mobility and flexibility.
The result…I now feel looser and more agile than ever.
As a Live Leaner, you’re in this fitness game for the LONG-TERM.
And that’s why I created the:
It’s simple. As a Live Leaner, you’re on this healthy journey for the long-term.
Even though I consider myself an optimist, I have to give it to you straight.
Many of you will not be able to continue doing the workouts you enjoy into your 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s because you’re neglecting a major aspect of overall fitness and health: your mobility.
Unfortunately in today’s world of 9-5 office desk jockey jobs, 24/7 mobile device usage, and sitting on the couch for Netflix marathons, has led to many alignment and posture issues.
On top of that, many people like you, who workout regularly, are also unnecessarily creating excessive tightness in your body and are not properly recovering from your workouts.
If you’re tired of always waking up feeling super stiff and tight, and struggling with aches and pains that continuously stop you from getting amazing results with your workouts… you are not alone.
If you’re truly in this fitness and health game for the long-term, don’t become another gym injury statistic.
It’s why I’ve been focused on improving my mobility over the last 4 years and why I created these 10 minute follow along workouts to quickly improve flexibility, fire up your muscles, and injury-proof your body for life.
It’s a video program that I used to transform from a tight, rigid, and injury prone body, to a flexible, mobile, and injury-free machine.
7 mobility workout videos that are designed to free your body of tightness, aches, and pains, and allow you to not only look good, but feel even better.
