Hi all... I am posting this thread to track my progress with Warrior Wellness in regards to improving joint strength and health. Let me convey the story (I apologize in advance as this will be long):
I have been struggling with aching joints especially in my neck and back. I have 2 10lbs. clubbells and the CST manual and video. I began using them, exploring the movements with them and even got some advice from Coach Sonnon (thanks Coach) on how to begin with them for slow, general strength. When I began, I couldn't keep focused; I felt that somehow even with these remarkable tools I was creating more of an imbalance in my body. I stopped using them. I stopped doing all "exercise" except rolling and rocking on my spine to aleviate the pain there. The worst place is in the upper part of the middle third of my back (hope that makes sense). The area is tight and it feels as though there is a long, knotted cord of muscle about 4 inches long. This runs parallel to my spine about an inch to the left.
Anyway, I felt as though I needed to start more discretely and the base level of motor functioning. I needed retraining and proper joint strength before I try to move any further. I need refinement before strength. Building a house on sand is not a good idea.
I received WW a couple days ago and reviewed all the tapes. Biting back the urge to jump ahead I will focus on the beginning foundation. My goal is to free up my range of motion in all my joints but most especially in my back. I have a feeling that someone will probably suggest I need Be Breathed as well. I have a little one coming within the next week or so and my wife and I are trying to budget as best we can... It will have to wait for a while...
For the next 8 weeks, I will do nothing but WW everyday and track my progress faithfully. For some reason I feel like I may want to do it twice a day as tolerated, not in the beginning, but perhaps after the first four to six weeks.
I want and appreciate all feedback. I am grateful to have a place to post my progress and thoughts relating to my health. So here we go...
