Hey Team..

Well.. the edits to my new book,  Habits of a Champion, are now complete!

Wow... what a process...

Kicked my butt mentally & physically...

The past few days I have been dealing with forearm and hand discomfort...

Why?

Excessive stress from typing, the mouse, and overusing my cell-phone texting, scrolling, and emailing...

Crazy, right?

But, most would panic...

What is going on? Should I run to the doctor? What should I do?

I want you to understand the mechanism and origins of pain...

1. Overuse- stress- repetitive movements, postures, and positions...

2. The nerve is being squeezed by over-active muscles as a result of #1

Simple.

That is pain.

Pressure and squeezing on a nervedue to tight tissue that is adapting and remodeling around a stressed area...

Remember that.

So, how do we release tissue? Heat, massage, trigger point therapy are great options and show to work the best...

Notice how I did not include stretching first?

You must inhibit and get the tissue to relax so you can maximize a stretch...

You can not stretch a tight/ locked muscle group...

So next time you are dealing with "something".. think posture, positioning, stress, and overuse.... then think about tissue, pressure, and nerve entrapment / squeezing...

I shot a video speaking about my current issue and how I am fixing it.. Click here to view!
