So as you’re sitting at your desk reading this you do so with the knowledge that today is going to be leg day. However, your legs and hips feel tighter than a race car engine. How do you fix this? How do you pry those hips and stretch that which is so tight and so uncomfortable that you can even think about getting underneath a barbell after work? Well today I’ve got you covered.
So I haven’t had a chance to get this up until this week, but the past couple weeks have been very interesting. I’ve had my hands full with a couple new projects and I was able to witness something pretty incredible from a good friend of mine back on Saturday, September 16th 2017. For today’s post I’m going to elaborate on that day’s event.
When Achilles was a little baby his mother dipped him into a river of magic in order to protect him from the world. It worked because Achilles could not be harmed except on the one heel that his mother neglected to submerge in the water because of where she held him when she dipped him into the water.
If you’ve been following my social media for any length of time you’ve probably noticed that I frequently point out certain distractions that the general public engages in way too much in this day and age. These distractions are specific behaviors that have without a doubt dumbed down the general population and may very well be killing everyone’s gains!
Lack of time, space, and equipment are frequently the excuses many will lean on to “skip out” on a day’s work, or to be accepted as a “discouraging factor” in regards to trying to achieve performance.
Yes, the more resources that are available to one the better, however those resources don’t always have to be defined as just having a fully stocked weight room. No, knowledge of training and the grit to leverage what resources you do have at your disposal are what will really yield you the biggest results! In short, a creative approach and the ability to tap into what you have will always trump just having access to a bunch of bells and whistles.
