If you neglect rehab and prehab, you’ll see no progress.
My right shoulder constantly has an increased risk for injury, as the tissues that hold my shoulder joint are loose from the dislocations I’ve had over the past few years. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As an ex-athlete with a competitive nature, taking things slow is normally the last thing I want to hear, and the last thing I’ll ever listen to. But over the years I feel that I’ve matured a lot in that area, and it’s paid off.
After the first couple of dislocations happened, I immediately saw changes in my stability, and how it compromised my body’s ability to strengthen, adapt, and grow. I knew that I didn’t want to compromise any further progress, so I took the rehab for my shoulder very seriously, and I still do preheab work several times per week. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thankfully, that work has allowed me to build strength in big compound movements. I’ve noticed changes in movements like the bench press and the overhead press, but nothing has felt as good as putting the weights back on my waist for dips. I feel extremely stable and in control.
What area of your health are you neglecting? Have you taken the time to see what you might bet missing out on if you fail to solve those issues? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It was a fabulous spin class today for two reasons! First, my friend and loyal spinner, Travis, got me this vase from the Bisetti’s auction as a housewarming gift which was so meaningful since I was so sad about them closing the restaurant. Shout out to him also for starting at First National Bank as a Loan officer (in case anyone is searching for a lender)! Two, the members in my class today had such high, positive energy today despite the killer ride I had them endure! #spinclass#lovemyclasses#miramontbygenesis
Growing up I had a very wise crooner tell me, "if you find that you can't sleep, count your blessings instead of sheep" 🐑
I guess I didn't count my blessings enough because I grew up to be an insomniac! 😪😂 So I count them when I'm awake...and I'm counting more and more each day thanks to the people I have in my life right now ...words can't describe... #blessed#groupX#newjourney#newenergy#bingcrosby
