I wanted to take a moment to give some WELL DESERVED praise and acknowledgement to this woman here. This is Mo. About 3 and ½ months ago she made the decision to begin working with me after undergoing lower back surgery to help alleviate pain and radiating leg symptoms coming from an injury to one of her lumbar discs. On her first day, she was extremely cautious and nervous about even bending forward at the waist, let alone beginning to participate in any resistance training. Prior to surgery, bending forward or lifting a heavy object often would flare up her back pain causing her to avoid certain activities or movements.
Today, now 5 months after surgery, here she is not ONLY bending forward with more confidence but DEADLIFTING 35lbs. Now, things are not perfect. We are still working to perfect her technique and developing confidence with this movement but she is 🔥KILLING IT🔥! She has made so much progress in the last few months in developing strength, bodily awareness, and confidence with movement that a shout out for her was needed.
If Mo’s story resonates with you or you have been thinking… ▪️I don’t know what to do in the gym
▪️I am unhappy with the progress I have been making
▪️I am afraid of injuring/reinjuring myself
▪️I am nervous people will judge me in the gym
