Age is a self-fufilling prophecy

🌿
If you believe you will inevitably grow stiff and frail, that‘s what‘ll happen.

If you‘re convinced that moving smartly & caring for yourself will keep you fit till you drop, you‘ll behave in ways that encourage the latter.

At any rate, it‘s not age that causes pain.

🌿
If the way you train leaves you in pain -- pause – to study, think and test further.

Joint or back pain often results from dysbalances, awry posture and lacking distribution of forces.
In this case, it doesn‘t help to train harder. Train smarter you must to rebuild tensegrity.

If you‘d like to learn more on this concept, look into Functional Patterns

🌿
Also, chronic pain is frequently produced by your own brain. To distract and protect you from dealing with unconscious rage, fear or shame which your ego categorizes as threats to your self-image.

To make this ruse work, your brain picks an area you consider weak or susceptible and, via your nervous system tensing the tissue, prevents proper oxygenation, resulting in discomfort up to fierce pain.

If you‘d like to learn more on this concept, look into the studies of John Sarno on TMS

At any rate – let nobody talk you into believing you‘re too old or broken. Not even yourself. :)

Learn as you go.
We'll never be all-wise.
So do the best you can while staying open to new insights.
If you don't get the wished for results, look & test further.

❓Which approaches you thought would help led to adverse results? In which ways? For what did you exchange them?

Examples:

📌 Nutrition: As a youth our trainers dinned into us to avoid fat & dig in carbs. Following this, as a twen I sported a pretty fat bottom. Changed to: nutrient dense, no sugar, rich in natural fats.

📌 HIIT: At a point I regarded it a great idea to get through with training within the shortest possible time. Aka sit all day then burst into depletive intervalls in the evenings. Result: Initially adapting fast, growing handsome physique. Then exaggerating, ended up deeply exhausted and constantly sore. Changed to: Walk & move more during the day. Occasional sprints.

📌 Goals: Trying to improve my jumping distance I resorted to heavy lifting & weighted jumps. Results: gained some inches. Packing load on injuries, dysbalances & instability tho also resulted in nagging pain & complications. Changed: put health first, eventually found sensible approach in Functional Patterns

➡️ Check your beliefs, needs, fears and triggers. :)
