A LITTLE BROKEN


Injury A little broken

The injury or pain you feel now is NOT a final sentence - it's a temporary state.

 

Whether you are just starting out, or have been active your entire life, pain and injuries happen. The long and short of it is that you are likely experiencing pain or injury because something is too stiff and strong, or something is too weak and loose.

If you're a little bit broken follow these steps until you're not anymore...

 

 SEEK OUT A PRO THERAPIST

Sometimes problems can be solved in one session with specific drills to practice on your own to help the process. 

 

KEEP MOVING!

The last thing you want to do is become more sedentary. Rest the painful motion, but introduce as much non-painful movement as you possibly can in the rest of your body, and in that area. Don't do anything that creates a sharp pain.

 

MAKE MOVEMENT A HABIT

With regard to step #2, you need to be consistent. Make a #5minuteflow part of your daily routine and you will see exponential improvements.

 

BUILD A SOLID FOUNDATION

Make sure the affected area has a proper foundation in the surrounding structures. This can be as simple as getting your core and hips stronger to take the pressure off of your low back or improving your neck and spine flexibility to let your shoulder heal.

 

 MAINTAIN A POSITIVE ATTITUDE

Focus on what you CAN do vs what you can't do. The biggest difference maker is adapting to your environment. If you have a messed up knee, do everything you can to fix the problem WHILE getting amazing at pushups, pull-ups, handstands, and front levers. If your shoulder is aching work on the Simple Shoulder Solution drills AND get your legs stronger and more powerful than ever before.

Movement is an important part of life, do NOT admit defeat and adopt a sedentary lifestyle. Move well and live well.

Better every day,
-Max
