There are too many people getting hurt. The fault is usually unintentional. That is why I am a holistic athlete!
What this means is, that in spite of all the hype about pushing your limits, I am injury-free because I know my limits.
This does not mean my flexibility should not be improved. This does not mean I do not need to strength-train.
However, my range of motion is something that needs to be tended, day in and day out, as long as I live.
Connective tissue does not replace itself as quickly as muscle.
Joints need ligaments that are supple, not stiff or tight.
Loosen up people!
A holistic athlete is first and foremost health-conscious.
You’re going to be a lot happier if you take your time, take it easy, take it slow,
if you plan on getting to the athletic goals that you are dreaming to go!
