“You’re Getting Old and Stiff”, this from my 23 year old son a few weeks ago in a conversation. It ticked me off, and I couldn’t stop thinking about it so I had one thing to do, a little research and put together an action plan to do something about it.
He was right but that’s besides the point. I had to accept that at nearly 50 years old, my body is just not responding or recovering like it once did, say in my 20’s or even my 30’s. I’m also sitting on 3 injuries which aggravate when I work out so that doesn’t help either. It made me think, what is the solution? I’ve done a ton of research recently so here it is:
- 21 Day Body Cleanse
- Follow a supplement and vitamin regimen
- 90% Raw/Vegan/Vegetable Diet for 90 Days, (90% Veg Diet After)
- 5 Miles a Day. What does that look like? Walk/jog 2.5M in the AM and 2.5M walk/jog in the PM until I can do it all in one session. Two week entervals adding 1/2 Miles in the morning session and reducing in the afternoon/pm session.
- 3 Days of Yoga Alternate with 3 Days of Stretching in addition to the morning warm up for 30 Minutes before the Miles.
When I am done for the 90 Days I will have lost roughly 30-40 lbs and will start a Speed and Agility program. Check out https://eagle-athletic.myshopify.com/collections/speed-and-agility
I have to say that I’m looking forward to the Transformation but more importantly I’m looking forward to the strength and agility so I can move around easier again. Follow along with me and see how I improve and what my gains are. Join me on facebook and share your results!
