A little over a week ago, while training a group of people right here in Tampa, I talked about all the injuries you see in sports (and everywhere else) today.
In professional sports, for example, despite the gargantuan muscles, the monstrous bench presses, the deadlifts and curls – and the blazing speed, the fact is that the best-of-the-best are weak and vulnerable when and where it really counts.
Take a look at the sports pages and whenever you hear of someone being out for the season (or for a few months), take note of what the injury is. If you start charting the facts, you’ll be amazed at how many of the severe injuries are tendon injuries.
When I returned from China a month ago I met with a fellow suffering from tendinitis of the
elbow. How’d he get this injury?
Doing “cheat” pull-ups.
Although his muscles handled the exercise without a problem, his tendon did not – and as a result he was unable to train with his arm at all.
He was told to “work around it.” This usually means, avoid sing the limb until it heals.
Well, it had already been six weeks, and he was no better off. This proves the saying, “Better to break a bone that hurt a tendon.”
I prescribed some exercises for the lad – tendon exercises right out of my course, How to Eliminate Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Pain Within 30 Days.
Yes, the product helps MORE than carpal tunnel.
Anyway, a week later the man was out of pain and able to resume training.
He didn’t work around the injury. He learned to train it directly… and HEAL it.
I realize there are a lot of people running around with wrist, hand and elbow pain. If you want it fixed, don’t pound the iron – use your own body weight the way I teach in How to Eliminate Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Pain Within 30 Days.
