Mobility is a big issue for us all as we get older.
Mobility is my biggest Motivator when it comes to keeping active!
I can no longer jump as high as I did in the top picture but I’m proud I can still spin and kick.
The truth is for too long I gave myself a hard time for not training the way I use too when preparing for a fight. There was a time I considered another sport more fitting for my age because I was giving myself a hard time for lack of performance.
Then it dawned on me I still had a lot to give sharing my knowledge and enjoying the experience. Encouraging young people to go beyond their own mental limitations. It was then it was revealed to me I can still do a lot and the reality probably much more than a man of my age can normally muster.
No, I’m no longer what I was, but it’s the realisation I still have a lot to give and the enjoyment in doing remains. Above all it’s the mobility that is my motivation.
So I am still doing cardio, stretching and technique. I make sure my activity is enjoyable and get satisfaction from doing something well or to the best of my ability.
What are you prepared to do to keep your mobility.
