Beware the information you take in on Social Media and the interweb(slightly ironic)…
I saw a post from a “trainer” I know wasn’t certified and had recently started in the profession proclaiming that you don’t need to stretch.😳
Science says yes for multiple reasons:
✅ “Hills Muscle Model”
✅ Bio-tensegrity (how the body is balanced
✅ The health of your soft tissue, especially the fascia
✅ The range of motion(ROM) of your soft tissue and joint
This person didn’t intentionally do something devious; they didn’t know. It doesn’t make them bad people, but for those who listen to this info, they will suffer.
I get the struggle. You want to be of service, and in this day and age, you have to put yourself out there with relevant, helpful information.
But for your information to be relevant, you must deeply understand what you are discussing. So much so that you realize how much you don’t know.
But for some reason, people don’t view it this way within this industry. Information is passed down as fact from hearsay, random things people read, or ideas that pop up in their heads.
And workouts are devised from a couple of partial facts and put together as a “total body workout.” Just because you are using your body doesn’t mean it’s totally what it needs.
The desire to “be seen as…,” trumps presenting a full and accurate picture as to what people really need if they are looking for a full holistic program.
Instead of trying to piece together information from random posts, videos, and hearsay, study it.
You can start by grabbing a copy of my ebook, where I curate some of the most helpful information that you need. This is from almost 30 years of experience and degrees in training and therapy.
