If you’re like most athletes, you’re missing a daily structure that addresses your durability. This is your ability to withstand the regular physical stress of your athletic activities. So you can thrive.
By not taking the right action, you lower your likelihood of being an Athlete for Life.
I know how hard you train and how important your goals are to you.
I understand that you may not be certain about what to do and what not to do.
Who can blame you? You’re bombarded with information from past and present coaches, and on the internet. It can be overwhelming. Especially with all the conflicting science out there.
The result is either you don’t take the correct action, based on misinformation, or you don’t take any action at all. Both lead to injury for too many athletes.
I want to change that. I’m here to help create clarity and guidance for you in terms what you need to do to stay athletic for the long-term.
For the last several weeks, I’ve shared with you that I’m releasing a body-care program with you in mind.
It’s called Search & Rescue Mobility™ or SARM for short.
And it’s now available to you and the rest of the Athlete For Life community.
This program will support your durability as you train and compete in sports, and for life.
It’s a recipe for the foundational work that will promote better performance and lower your risk of injury.
To learn more about how and why it works, READ ON.
Self-Evaluation Screen (the first step)
Any educated and responsible fitness pro will not design a program, or train you, until you get a physical evaluation.
By this, I’m referring to a battery of tests and assessments that determine your readiness and risk of injury.
This is the most important first step to prescribe your individual starting point. Otherwise, you’ll be getting a cookie-cutter workout that has as high of a chance of causing injury, as it does of benefiting you.
It would be like a teacher starting a child off with Shakespeare before they can read a Babar book. Or a school that places your child in algebra before they know basic math. That would be setting those students up for failure.
I’m committed to setting you up for success from the start.
That’s why I put together a simple-to-follow Self-Evaluation Screen (SES). It measures your movement competency for athletic function. This is crucial to your immediate and long-term success. Both in performance and prevention.
The SES is a tool to help discover your baseline. It serves two main purposes in SARM:
A) Your results allow me to assign you with the right starting point in the program.
B) It serves as a reference for your progress in all future re-evaluations. My recommendation is every six weeks.
In the SES, I provide clear instruction in written and video demonstration so you’re getting accurate results.
Each day on the Athlete For Life App, you receive a short series of exercises that will help you to progress over a six-week period.
In that time, you will build a habit of daily body-care that you get to keep as a part of your active lifestyle. And never let up.
This program will empower you to SEARCH for sources of physical imbalance and restriction. And then RESCUE those areas so that they’re no longer a hindrance.
It includes exercises to improve the following:
- Balance and stabilization
- Mobility-specific stretching
- Self-Myofascial release using self-massage tools
Many of the exercises may already be familiar to you, while others may be new. Regardless, it’s the combination, sequence, and specific parameters of the exercises that make this program effective. So you’ll have better muscular function and joint mobility.
There will be three modules to cover the entire body. I’ll be releasing them in three stages so that you can develop your habit over time.
SARM: The Lower Leg
The first is an emphasis on The Lower Leg. It allows you to improve from the ground up. It’s also the first on the list because it’s often the most misunderstood and neglected.
What most athletes don’t realize is that knee, hip, and back injuries can be a symptom of poor function of the lower leg. Even a shoulder injury can be a domino effect that started in the foot. It’s all preventable.
Are you ready to make your body work better for you, for the long-term? If so, for a limited time, I’m offering SARM: The Lower Leg at a significant discount. It’s just $8.95. Learn more and get yours here.
As always, stay athletic.
