Social media is playing a huge part in delivering accessible information regarding training . Both in terms of how things can be done and achieved and celebrating and sharing ideas.
I’ve tried to be like a sponge with information – particularly with training practice and theory. This goes for nutrition and with trial and error with equipment use.
One of the major breakthroughs & successes I’ve had has been to watch, listen and learn from others, not only before I started training but to continue this as well.
The importance of representation of disabled influencers has been so key to my training. From confidence and the belief I too could give it a go, to the nuanced elements of the lifting movements with cerebral palsy. Some of the reflexes are not so easily attained and finding what’s right for you is key in this area.
That being said there are many movements that I now use in the gym that can be only attributed to many others who I’ve watched over the years and adapted it to their own unique style and given me the chance to learn & tweak it to my own style.
I almost feel I sense of responsibility that I owe to those who showed me to share it and pass on what I find works in the gym.
