1. Protect Your Joints — Transcript
Hi, welcome to the Guide to Healthy Joints.
In this guide, I cover really important tips that keep your joints safe. Despite strength training, and a lot of people know that strength training is important for keeping their joints protected, there’s a lot of people that strength train without regard to their joints, especially long term.
So when I watch my son train, and when I go to the gym and I see people under the age of 50 train, they’re usually able to get away with things that they won’t get away with later on.
So in this guide, I have a special feature from Marjorie, whose specialty is shoulders, and she’s done several blogs on shoulder health, specific exercises when keeping in mind the health of your shoulder. We look at positioning of feet, of knees, a whole special series on…a whole special chapter devoted to the health of wrists, and hands, and forearms.
And so, I highly recommend that you go through this guide. See if there’s things that you might be doing that might put your joints at jeopardy. Think about things that you currently aren’t doing that you might want to supplement your programs with, but remembering that in order to keep a healthy body, your joints are really critical in that whole picture in keeping you feeling well and moving through the years.
So thanks for tuning in.
