I've seen the chiropractor yesterday and he says my pelvis is in line, etc. but I MUST work on my flexibility before anything.
I'm stretching out my hip flexors, quads, hamstrings, calves 2-3 times a day, and now I can bend over and pick things up off the floor (light stuff like pens, shoes, etc.) which might not sound that impressive, but when I had a wonky spine and was stiff as a board, I couldn't even put my socks on! It was twice as bad when I actually had torn ligaments!
I feel more flexible each day, and I'm in no pain anymore so can do some HIIT style swimming, which I intend to do 1 length of holding a float and just kicking like a madman, then put the float between my legs and crawl with just my arms, then rest until i feel good to go, etc.
so I'm going to increase to doing cardio each day which'll be either swimming, cycling, or long distance walking for the next 3 weeks when I see the chiropractor again to re-evaluate how I've been getting on, and where I'm at. Hopefully I'll be good to train!
How does that sound mate?
Do you have any plans to compete in boxing Knighty?
I used to compete a little bit when I was about 10, just 3x1.5 minute rounds with some of the lads in the gym, but I'm really looking forward to getting into the strength training circle.
