Do you want to build muscle, improve mobility, and bulletproof your joints with one workout routine only? Here’s a perfect plan for you.
If you talk to enough big, strong guys with admirable bodies, you’ll notice that one complaint keeps coming up: They all have joint problems. It seems that there’s an unwritten rule that training to build muscle has to wreak havoc on your joints—but in fact, you can have an amazingly looking body without wrecking it along the way.
The workout plan incorporates careful programming, mobility, and corrective exercise to help you safely build both muscle and strength. Perform each workout routine (Day I, II, and III) once a week, resting a day between each session.
Protect your joints
Lifting weights compresses the joints and may result in injury.
There are two principal ways to prevent lifting-related aches and pains: Master perfect technique so your physique can bear the stress of heavy weights as safely as possible, and vary the loads you use so that you never undergo too much stress for too long.
This workout program improves technique by means of mobility, with exercises such as the face-pull that activates and balances out the muscles around the shoulder to allow for protected, efficient lifting.
