A few months ago, I watched a documentary on one of my childhood heroes, Vasily Alekseyev, from the 1972 and 1976 Olympics.
This mountain of a man was an Olympic weightlifter from the former Soviet Union who became the first person in history to clean-and-jerk 500 pounds (227 kilograms). His quest for Olympic Gold wasn’t even close. He destroyed his competition.
Imagine my surprise when I saw footage of this same man in his 50’s. He was no longer lifting 500 pounds over his head, or anything close. His body was racked with pain. In one particular scene, after he had been sitting on the grass talking with a reporter, he needed three people to help him get up from the ground.
Tragic, but true.
In the process of breaking one world record after another, this man appeared to turn into the very thing he was lifting: iron.
His body, instead of being supple, flexible and mobile, was now rigidified. Sadly, Alekseyev’s life ended far too early.
Was the pain Alekseyev suffered later in life for his heroic accomplishments worth it? The answer from him might have been, “YES!”
But what if there was a way to rejuvenate and regenerate his body that he wasn’t aware of. Could he have switched gears after his competitive days ended, and exercised in a way that would have restored him, helping him live pain free?
These are questions I have pondered and played with for many years.
Because I’ve been through the ringer in terms of injuries and joint pain, yet today, after changing from “hard style” and “pushing myself outside my comfort zone” to a softer and smarter approach, my body is more mobile and more agile than ever before.
And I’m teaching you all about this approach in my new course, Power Postures-Tiger Tendons.
