This past weekend the following image floated around the internet. I made it for my brand ORIGINAL Nutritionals’ Facebook page to reflect a dynamic that is nearly universal in our population.
I was inspired to portray this idea after a conversation I had. In reality, I’ve had the same conversation a few hundred times. People tend to tell me how much they appreciate the things I teach followed by all the unfortunate reasons why they can’t partake. I think the effort is to get me to support their reasoning.
That rarely happens.
I understand that lifting weights is scary. It’s scary for me, too. But, there’s good news..
You can make a barbell weigh anything you want. Yup, even your kind of weight.
When it comes to exercise using load is a key tool. And, guess what? If you could squat with barbell on your back, wouldn’t you need a healthy back to do it? Or, does that only work the other way around and you’ve been cursed with a lemon for a spine?
If you want to tell me that your body type, knee pain, or aesthetic preferences makes you exempt from bearing load through large ranges of motion, I’ll listen. I just can’t agree with you.
