Just had a great workout! A circuit of kettlebells, resistance stretching, jump rope and Tai Chi ball drills … now approaching 7 decades, training is more fun than ever. Years of contact sports can exact a toll, but it also becomes the impetus for learning how to heal. The aging process tends to soften the rigidity in mind and body, when you get the hang of it.
Higher motor neurons activate as finger flexors grip the bar … lower back muscles instinctually tense. Intention directs ground force through Kidney 1, as body and gravity bend to your will.
The deadlift is a simple resistance exercise requiring the coordinated effort of complex muscle groups. Present core training fitness trends largely overlook this king of lifts in favor of pilates and balance balls. Okay … I’m old school, but I challenge anyone to correctly execute 4-5 sets of intense kettlebell or barbell deadlifts, and see if your core isn’t talking to you in the AM!
