but you're a distinguished member of the RHET inner circle so your sin is absolved
Sun is shinning and it's above 60* for the first time in days, want to go outside and get my tan on but legs are too sore to walk / skateboard / bike
Nothing ridiculous about getting aesthetic and acquiring sloots.
the whole internet famous thing
Reporting for duty
Depressing. I'm worried this has happened to me. I spend 8 hours a day sitting in front of the computer. Even though I work from home, I'm working a survival call-centre type job which has me chained to the computer and phone. I literally can't even stand up most the day and I have a feeling it's screwing up my lower back. I find lifting can make it worse. What should I do to fix this shit? I thought getting active would be enough but it isn't at all. I played a lot of sport in high school and felt great, but ever since entering the world of work things have gone downhill.
Need a job where I can stand up and walk around sometimes.
Should I be reading MobilityWOD?
Is it normal that my knees keep cracking? Even when i extend my calves out without weights they crack....
yep, welcome to being an old man
MobilityWOD is a great resource, and you should use it as much as you can. Kelly has a number of good tips for how to minimize the damage of sitting at a desk all day.
As far as the poor mobility being unreverseable, how old are you?
I'm 24. Was active up until about 16 or 17.
Yeah I highly doubt you fall into the irreversible category I was talking about before. I'm talking about guys in their 40s who've spent their entire lives inactive and immobile. I'm pretty sure you have the potential to get mobile enough to squat properly. It just takes diligence and patience. MWoD is a great resource. Find some mobilizations that work for you, do them as often as you can, learn to minimize the damage being done while sitting at your desk, and focus on squatting well versus squatting heavy. It took me 3 years or so to get to where I could squat really deep without lumbar flexion. Even now I get the occasional butt wink when I go above 80-85 percent of my 1RM.
Mobility takes time. No quick fixes.
we should aspire to be even half as hard as fuck as this guy.
