The Uncool Trainer
My approach to training is to assess the muscles first to see which are functioning optimally before assigning exercises to you. I believe in building a rock solid foundation to make your body resilient. Let’s find out together how your muscles are responding before I tell you to what exercise to do because any exercise whether it’s a stretch or a strengthening exercise can derail your progress if it’s not what your body needs.
Don’t get me wrong. I think what I do is really cool! So much so, that I will show you pictures of your muscles in my anatomy book to help you understand. But in this day and age of high intensity, maximum calorie burn, make you sore for days type workouts, I definitely fall into the uncool category. And I’m okay with that.
