The Fitness Hurdles

We all know the drill – get knocked down, get back up again, keep pushing.

Well I got to that point a couple of weeks ago. I had been pushing (maybe a little too hard) and wore myself down training wise.

I sensed I needed to talk with someone in the know about sports aches and pains.

It just so happens I know a sports injury specialist, who knew more about the knots and pulls in my back than I thought I’d ever know.

An hour of treatment later, armed with better information about how to adapt with having more muscle flexibility in my right side, I’ve developed a programme (both stretching and workouts) that helps equal the balance with my muscles while progressing with my core strength.

I got back on the journey for optimum fitness (actually, the hurdle was part of it) and will continue to push it, but in smarter ways!

I’m sure we’ve all hit walls, but I feel it just makes us stronger, how have you pushed on over a hurdle?

With a bit of struggle comes the ability to find strength!

Bringing you the latest in not only my personal journal into the world of disability Bodybuilding, but a discovery into latest events, profiles, news and promoting awareness of this great sport Based in Bristol in the UK, I’ve been competing in Disability Bodybuilding for the last 3 years in a journey which has taken me all over the country to national, international & world championships and I am so so grateful for that opportunity that had changed my life. Living with Cerebal Palsy has its challenges, but everyone has their individual hurdles to negotiate. Gaining strength both physically & mentally and adapting to the surrounding is all part of this journey. This is a mission to raise awareness, to promote our great category to develop opportunities for others. Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss more!
