00:00:06Hello and welcome back to the fight gravity show. It’s me John. This week is just going to be me talking, so bear with me.

00:00:15But we’ll have more interviews to come with other interesting people and interesting conversations.

00:00:22For this week, I want to talk briefly about injuries kind of mistakes.

00:00:28Making stupid decisions when your training.

00:00:32Accidents happening. And

00:00:36Doing your best to prevent injury.


00:00:42Accidents, just happen.

00:00:44So it’s really important to train safe, whatever you’re doing.

00:00:50Do your best to learn it, do your best to learn the movements while reduce the risk of injury.

00:00:57Really work on the movement patterns. Whatever it is if you’re doing squats like take reasonable action to learn the squats or deadlifts or anything you’re doing take reasonable action, Lauren it, take your time, learn it. Well, and this is going to generally reduce injury.

00:01:15As well as properly recovering, okay? So properly recover, learn it. While, if you’re not sure what to do, you do find someone? Find someone for help. It’s not a bad thing. There’s also a million bajillion videos on YouTube and there’s a lot of awesome people talking about Good form and how to prevent this with that said we’ll go into

00:01:39Some info about injuries and how I’ve overcome them.

00:01:46So, like I said before, I do have a background in martial arts. So I’ve had my fair share of injuries.

00:01:52one of the first one was,

00:01:56Not not proper form on a nap. Will I I was how old was fourteen and I hyper-extended doing wraps, I will and my lower back was hurting like for a couple days so I recovered pretty quickly but you know they say pain is a great teacher but I hope I all the stories are even a greater teacher so you don’t have to say and make the same mistakes that I do another people do. So yeah, if you use a nap will you should be really paying attention to your hip position. Contracting your glutes and

00:02:41And doing it that it’s not too easy but not that’s not too hard. Check your ego you know go on your knees and if it’s still kind of too hard on your knees, may be like oh, you know, maybe this is too hard for me and I need to do another exercise or maybe you just need a lower the volume and intensity, right? And I’m lower than number assets that you doing with it. But like, Anyway, night, I was in martial arts class and I, we were doing, I will roll out and

00:03:13It was no one’s fault but mine, you know. I my back hyper-extended that day, I felt. Okay. The next few days it was really kind of hurting like a lot and really stiff. I know. Now like if I’m doing them correctly, I’ll get a really good workout in my core.

00:03:34And my lower back won’t hurt. So I can do them. I can use it. I will every day and I know I’ll be fine.

00:03:44You know, where Ennis of the hips and those are in the right position and picking A variation. That’s a good fit, not too easy, not too hard.

00:03:53Other injuries who shin splints. Yeah. Like running a high school especially kind of running up hills like recreationally I would I would get like shin splints. Like I’d most like pain inflammation on the front of my shins and will running sometimes running uphill backwards helped

00:04:16also again if you go too fast too soon,

00:04:22Then it’s dead body. Kind of like screams at you. So, what I probably should have done instead of like casually with one of the guys on the wrestling team.

00:04:37Anti cabs and doing like a similar route that the wrestlers did and my clothes hard. I didn’t know at the time but now I know. So if I were to run Hills again,

00:04:49It would be like, Oh, I’m not going to start off writing about a really Steep Hill, only start kind of something smaller and build up the intensity over time.

00:05:01That way I won’t get shin splints.

00:05:04Other other things like like Landing. So again, like where I picked up a base level of coordination and athleticism, wasn’t martial arts in sometimes you just get tired and you’ll, and weird, and you get knee injuries or foot injuries, or, or, or the back because you, like, land wrong.

00:05:34You know, I’m part of that. It’s like checking yourself when you’re fatigued. So usually, when these type of things happened while I landed wrong after jumps and other other exercises it was because I was like pushing things like too much.

00:05:55And that’s where I like. Oh okay, I’ll push yourself. They not push yourself. Push yourself ass until you break them. I do love that pray.

00:06:10But when you’re pushing yourself, I think you have to ask a question like how I might in my, how tired am I right now? How fatigued am? I how, well am I really going to do?

00:06:21if I get one more rep, if I do do this one more time,

00:06:27is it going to be good? Is it going to be good? Practice, is it going to be productive? Is it going to help me or

00:06:35Am I going to get injured?

00:06:37Sometimes it’s going to be okay. Sometimes maybe not I think it’s a good question to ask. I think it’s good to just build your awareness on your level of like fatigue and so you can make a good decision when your training you and you’re fatigued. And it’s like

00:06:54I’ve already worked out that I’ve redone other things. Kind of tired, is it really necessary? Do I really need to do this now?

00:07:03Or maybe I should move on to something else.

00:07:07I mean again. Not putting out an all-or-nothing rule. This isn’t like go again. It says, don’t push yourself.

00:07:16I I think it’s like safe training, it really learning to know your body what you, what you can do, what you can do for teague’s, because who was David Goggins? That’s like when you think you’re all the way done. You’re just like 40% there, right? So again, I’m not disagreeing with.

00:07:42Someone who is like no less than freaking amazing. I love David Goggins if you don’t know David Goggins. Oh my God. Where have you been?

00:07:54Listen to like all his interviews, all the podcast, read his book.

00:08:00David Goggins is awesome. Read it. Apply it, it’s amazing. So, not disagreeing with, with Goggins in, for the sake of injury prevention. I think it’s really important to ask, you know, how long am I going to do right now? How how good is my practice going to be when I reach a certain level of fatigue. And how do I know if I’m going to do something continue? How do I do this safely?

00:08:28While also getting to know, your body didn’t know your limits. Breaking also breaking through your limits in your barriers, right?

00:08:35Anyway, Mike moving on.

00:08:41from here, we can just

00:08:45fast forward to college and experiments, some terrible experiments with lifting weights. I’ve got a really gnarly, like, tendonitis in in college because I was doing like too much on a preacher curl.

00:09:02I I talked in like a previous show about some of the stupid things I did in regard training. So this was the days where I was primarily like bench press and likewise and kickbacks and not a lot of back work. Not a lot of like posterior chain and stuff like that. So I did like too much on preacher curl and I had like tendonitis for like 3 months. It was a pain in the fucking ass and it’s so simple just

00:09:37Don’t lift too much. Really, really simple. Don’t live too much and you want to, right? You won’t be like, I’m going to be like, like, whatever, whatever your model is, whatever your your images of the strongest version of you. It’s like,

00:09:59Yes, do that. But you know what?

00:10:04You might have to start with 5 lb.

00:10:07Like naturally I I don’t have a lot of upper body strength while having joke with people. I have like the skinny bastard jeans. I actually don’t have like terribly big wrists and not really, my shoulders aren’t super big. It’s okay. That you don’t do the best with what you have. I love body weight because my I don’t respond well to it and it’s fun.

00:10:35Azizia be consistent, me doing like pull up and push-up variations and working on like levers and all this other stuff. I try to incorporate other things as well, and maybe that’s like something for another time. I could talk more about like what I do, why do what kind of the reason behind my madness but we’ll save that for another day.


00:10:57Check your ego. So, if you’re sitting here and you’re doing preacher curls at the gym, and if you’re afraid of like, looking like a pussy, you know what don’t be kind to yourself. I’m doing my best. I can only reach her car then. Yep. You are going to look week.

00:11:23You are going to look week. Oh my God.

00:11:27You know, I’m you might still have this like, you know, what are people thinking about you?

00:11:40Okay, you’ll get better, be kind to yourself, being the strongest version of. You also means understanding your limits, and you’re not going to get stronger if you’re constantly injuring yourself. And if you’re like tendons, ligaments and tissues are like inflamed, the rib tour.

00:11:58You know, other things going on. So, start light gradually build up to things right. Another theme just like the whole shin splints thing. Same thing here, gradually build up to things.

00:12:13I talked previously about some of my experiments with static contraction. Training fancy name for isometrics. Let me basically we more or less overcoming isometrics. There’s actually benefits to overcoming isometrics pizzas. Going John with all the static contraction training. I think it’s a little bit like really hyped up. Maybe kind of like two hyped, but there’s I think there’s like good reasons for everybody to do some sort of isometric training at some point. And other times in my life, where I’ve been injured by, I’ve done isometrics consistently over to 3 months during the healing process and it’s allowed me to maintain my strength.


00:13:03And sometimes other people do isometrics or try to increase their neural efficiency to try to like recruit more motor units. And also work on sticking points on different list, like a bench, press squat, deadlift, whatever, whatever it is, working on sticking points. So

00:13:20You know, I’m isometrics can be like a good tool, sometimes. He’s like really fantastic about it. Like, oh my god, without lifting weights, and maybe that’s a big munch.

00:13:37Man, I’d love to believe it, kind of skeptical. I mean, some people that you can drive her to be with isometrics


00:13:48I hate, I’d love to believe it. I don’t know anyone who’s actually used isometrics Bill like size and strength but I know it’s a tool use that can help so I know I can conjunction with other modalities of Fitness it’s definitely going to help your overall Fitness.

00:14:10But hey, you know, if you had it experience, utilizing isometrics for strength and size, give a shout-out, like leave a comment or send me a message and let’s, let’s hear from you about it. Anyway,

00:14:28I had different experiments and tried. Static contraction training.

00:14:34I wasn’t always smart about it and so sometime, like the shoulder aches and back was back was fine with it. But like, elbow knees like a little sore like not like injuries per se, but

00:14:57And then I kind of like after college what little like strength training I did it kind of stopped. I didn’t have access to a gym for a number of years.

00:15:08And I wasn’t yet into my calisthenics and stuff like that. So I just kind of mostly did cardio and I was okay, most of the time.

00:15:20When I was running I started getting shin splints again I was running like 10 K like every Sunday at one point and this was in like 2009-2010 and and Summit 2011.

00:15:37Nephew, 2009-2011 Sunday’s. I actually run a 10K and my joints would hurt. You know how my knees would hurt. My feet were locations, sometimes would hurt.

00:15:52What actually helped at that point was I I stopped running on cement.

00:16:00And I started running on natural Terrain.

00:16:04Dirt grass. And that really did the trick and I guess natural trained. It has more give

00:16:12And that’s like easier on your joints.

00:16:15So that made a huge difference and personally it’s a lot more fun like running.

00:16:22Out in nature and stuff and the trees Birds and the breeze and fun. Then for me, then running around in the city and there’s a dog and there’s kids and there was honking and construction and and and and and and

00:16:45But some people like it, you know, you like it, that’s great.

00:16:49Glad you like it. It’s good for you. Not good for me.


00:16:58I mean, I would recommend writing on natural terrain, but again, if you’re not running on a natural train and you doing that, you’re feeling great, you’re making progress. Hey, if what’s working for you is working, then keep doing it.

00:17:14I started then will come to just go for it. I started lifting weights again.

00:17:20And it was okay, I actually didn’t get injured. I had a better more balanced plan.

00:17:30And then I got the job offer for China. I went to China. I started like lifting. Right. I talked a little guy doing P90X. I did like two and a half rounds of P90X.

00:17:42So, basically doing it for about a year.

00:17:47Then I got a like, a really good program. The balance program, like SWAT variation, a deadlift at like, fits me and and some Benton, some benching and pressing and you know, if you have a few different things, it was it was a pretty balanced program.

00:18:04And I actually did not injure myself.

00:18:07Listing. I enjoyed myself. Throw in a bad mood, high kick and my right. Big toe went through.

00:18:15Marisa capsular. Ligament on my right toe, I ignored it for like 2 months. I trained on it when I could like walking her back and leg press and I can put the weight through my heel on the leg press and I could do the same amount of weight. I was normally doing. I was doing trap bar deadlifts at the time and it was kinda hard. But again if I pressed extra hard do my heels I could

00:18:45Again, this was not March for me to really trying to maintain than just ignoring it, not a good idea.

00:18:56so yeah, if you feel like you broke something,

00:19:00Be proactive, take appropriate action.

00:19:04Firing order for a couple months and then I was like really frustrated. And then I was just like, okay I’m just going to, you know, maybe you’d be good for me just to rest. So I rested I rested for a couple months and it wasn’t going away like this sucks.

00:19:22It’s like no progress but it was like, it wasn’t like it was maybe getting a little bit better than I mean, there was just no progress and there was a pain. Every single step

00:19:34So I was like, okay, I’m going to keep working and what I did was I just was like wasn’t working my legs and this is why I really started doing like pull-ups and focusing a lot more pull-ups and push-ups. I was afraid to lift weights because of pudding-like tension on my foot. So when I was doing push-ups I was dropping one foot around the other. So my bad foot would stay off of the ground and for pull up, so I could just eat, you know? I can work on pull-ups and I would come down on my left leg. So my right leg would be fine.

00:20:09Impulse are hard for me. So I do one or two pull-ups and I dress 30 to 60 seconds. I reached a point where I can do a hundred, pull ups in 40 minutes, it took me like 3 months,

00:20:20I tried like some other brand of essential oils.

00:20:24It it it didn’t work. I was trying to I was using it consistently twice a day for 2 months. No progress.

00:20:36I found the Acupuncture Clinic, although before I come to Acupuncture Clinic, I went to like a bone, setting specialist in Hong Kong, it’s like traditional Chinese medicine. It helped a little bit, but it was in Hong Kong and the doctor there said, hey I know someone inch engine, you can go there. And so I went there and it was electrically stimulated acupuncture. So they stick needles in my foot and there’s like electrodes attached to it and they put them in these points on my foot and it would go for 20 minutes and there was also like someone I guess who’s kind of like the school therapist. I wasn’t sure her exact title. My Chinese was terrible at the time in her English was kind of like blah. So I was like speaking what limited Chinese I could she was speaking with English. Could we kinda sorta understood each other things? She was some sort of a physical therapist, but she was doing like manipulations and massage on the phone. It took like three months.

00:21:35it took me months to heal, but it was at full capacity after that like once in awhile, if I’ve had some really terrible carbohydrates that are

00:21:46Skyrocketing my inflammation, I might feel it if I’ve done a lot of walking like I’ve been walking 6 8 hours. It might be a little like cancer sore.

00:22:00But I mean, it feels good. I can do calf raises on one leg. I work pistol, squats and shrimp squats and then bunch of other stuff, jumping working, and it’s okay.

00:22:14And I know I’ve got my I got my Doterra oils, so if it’s ever really tender, I can grab some Wintergreen and Eucalyptus, like, grab some deep blue or, or something else, and turmeric compiled by. It’s going to take care of it.

00:22:31After that, I got into weights like a why I continue to wait. So a little bit and that’s where I started and actually with convict conditioning going more towards calisthenics until part of calisthenics.

00:22:45Actually, I didn’t suffer really many injuries and where I did was kind of pushing things too much on handstand push-ups. So a couple times, I injured my shoulders.

00:22:58Doing handstand push-ups.

00:23:02And I wasn’t smart about I was doing too much too fast, and it would actually it wasn’t with like regular ones where your hands are shoulder-width apart and you’re really going down on it was with these right. I’d reached the point I was doing like two sets of like 15.

00:23:20I can’t stand like, push-ups.

00:23:23And I was like, okay, cool, SquarePants, and push-ups, and I injured myself a couple times. First time it healed.

00:23:37Second time, my second injury took like 3 months.

00:23:41And again both of these times, I didn’t like doing isometrics, I was doing like a little bit, isometrics like 5-10 minutes a day and it was enough to maintain my strength. When I got back to my program, NY was fully recovered.

00:23:56I was okay. I was doing about the same amount as I was.

00:24:04How to hamstring issues, too. At some point. I overstretched it right working on my splits.

00:24:12I was doing a little bit more.

00:24:15More martial arts training in 2014. Yeah. And really kind of working on my splits and

00:24:22I pulled.

00:24:24I have pulled my hamstring.

00:24:27And that took like I think like 2 months to recover so laying off legs and stuff like that again, I pushed it too far getting fixated on a goal. But again part 2 is like stress.

00:24:42So stress has a significant impact on your ability to like perform and enough energy and nervous system at. And the enemy has all these things. Hormone-signaling, like sleep is really important as well as with like injuries, right? And if you’re if you’re stressed, that’s not going to be really good for your recovery stress hormones.

00:25:05Another thing.

00:25:08Just for like recovering from injuries is like your mindset and not identifying with the pain. That’s a really important detail. I feel

00:25:22You can kind of it eventually sort of learned this the hard way. I don’t recommend that. So if you’re sure kind of going through some injuries,

00:25:33don’t let that like that’s it’s not your identity Eckhart Tolle.

00:25:39I might be pronouncing it wrong maybe estoy. I thought it was like a car toll but between the power now and like a new Awakening, he also has like he has a bunch of videos on YouTube as well.

00:25:51Talks about not identifying with the pain.

00:25:55so, you have an injury in a recovering from that and

00:25:59It’s like not letting that. Get your mood down and not letting that. Like not letting the pain in the injury like Be Your Existence and that’s really important.

00:26:10And when you can do that, I strongly feel you’re going to be able to recover better because you’re going to maintain a more positive mindset.

00:26:22So, what’s E fast forward to 2017?

00:26:29I was doing dips.

00:26:32I was actually visiting a friend in Arizona, I slipped on the bar and my ribs wink. It took two months.

00:26:43About two months to recover. It was really. I’m at her I slipped on the bar when when I went down the bar again, I was doing the horizontal dips probably

00:26:57My rib cage. It was right. It was like right here it. Probably, it felt like it depressed like kind of this much.

00:27:052 months to heal and I was able to not be like crazy or fidgety.

00:27:15I wasn’t, I feel like I was not identifying with pain at this point in my life. I didn’t know about Eckhart Tolle and I hadn’t read any of his books yet, but I was able to just go through my life and work and I was doing other things. I was working, I was working my legs. I was doing jump, rope, walking riding a bike. I was still staying active and doing my best to eat. Well,

00:27:42it’s the one I started again.

00:27:44I’ll still like moving on a regular basis. Again, I was healed after a couple months and I was okay.

00:27:52So that like mindset when you’re recovering from injuries, it’s really important and it’s their it sucks, you’re going to heal. You will get to 100% in constantly stressing over. It does not help.

00:28:09Like another example, I did something to my wrist. I slept like working on one hand push-ups, you know, and my wrist was like

00:28:22I didn’t stop working out.

00:28:24Kind of not about exercise. I’m like, I don’t want to stop moving.

00:28:31but when I was able to do,

00:28:35I found if I kept my wrist in the neutral position,

00:28:40it didn’t hurt during the workout and it didn’t hurt after it took this injury, it took about a month to heal.

00:28:50And I was, I was doing pull-ups and I was doing push-ups. And when I did pull ups,

00:28:56I do not want to, I felt a little bit stress going out here. So I did like neutral grip, pull ups right here and I did on your hands as well.

00:29:07And again the roast dinner during it didn’t hurt after. Also on push-ups, I wouldn’t either do push-ups on my Knuckles or push-ups struts.

00:29:18Push-up handles and I was okay.

00:29:23Killed after a month cuz I had to change my routine. Right? So whenever that happens whenever I’ve had an injury and I’ve wanted to keep moving

00:29:35But still kind of support like recovery. This doesn’t mean changing your routine. So sometimes what happens to people as they get injury and they can’t do the same routine then just like I’m not doing anything.

00:29:55I I don’t think that’s a good idea.

00:29:58It’s not necessarily doing anyting.

00:30:01It depends on the injury you know follow that follow the advice of the medical professionals that you see. Okay, again take reasonable action.

00:30:17All right, and there’s some people online with a lot of Education and Research and they could, they could throw like a million billion articles at you, about the, how to get idea to try to stay moving within reason while you’re recovering from an injury without exacerbating the injury, right? So, if the wrist is healed then you know, back off on upper body movements, but you can still at least walk in a lot of cases. When you’re battling an injury, you can walk

00:30:53leg injuries notwithstanding if you have like a, some sort of like, leg injury and not going to be able to walk, but if you going to be able to swim,

00:31:02Maybe knocking be able to swim. If you’re going to be able to walk in the pool and maybe you’re going to be able to ride a bike.

00:31:08Maybe you’re going to be able to do some pull-ups or push-ups, maybe you’ll be able to sit and do some like seated rows be able to do and be able to do like a machine press.

00:31:20Don’t go crazy, you’re not going to set any personal records.

00:31:25Yeah, so the wrist thing kept a neutral healed.

00:31:32another gnarly injuries, the only other injury that was really

00:31:39Really intense. Is I fell on my knee.

00:31:43Someone was holding me for human flag and I dropped, like, I was like four feet in the air, and I dropped. Boom. Right on my knee, my knee client, and then fold it up. And I couldn’t move it for like 5 minutes. And then after 5 minutes, I could slowly move it.

00:32:03And then I can kind of walk. I couldn’t squat down and I would get like a jolt.

00:32:13And my leg would like, count Shake.

00:32:17Actually, I was able to heal him three days from this. So I was able to maintain like a positive mindset. I wasn’t attaching to the pain and it’s like us there. I need to support recovery and do things differently and that’s what I did.

00:32:33Also, I used, I used to like deep blue rub.

00:32:39Najib oil, frankincense.

00:32:42I was using that 6 times a day,

00:32:45And I felt I fell Almost 100% after 3 days.

00:32:52I still like they took it like really light, like, for the next, like, 2 months.

00:33:00Even though I have two or three days doing this protocol, I can squat again.

00:33:06Like, using these.

00:33:09List all fruit for 2 months. I just I kept things like the white and slowly over time. I just increased intensity. I was still a little bit like trepidatious.

00:33:22I was really, really conservative with my training, the rest of that year, the supposed like 2019 like for my leg training. So I didn’t really set in your personal records, our mess or anything. With my leg training back in like, 2019 for the most part. I maintained some things I would rest a little bit but that’s okay. You like neck injury. I did something like I went to the chiropractor like three times this was in 2019, March I did something to my likes E71.

00:33:57I got a head like three adjustment that month.

00:34:01It, it was fully healed after a month.

00:34:04It was it was a challenge. It was hard for me to try to maintain like a just a normal mindset was going about my life work, you know, friends bulb evolved evolved and I was able

00:34:20Most the time me and I was feeling, okay.

00:34:24I would like I said in the evenings that kind of helped give me some pain relief like before bed. Having my pillow in the right position. I was using like red light.

00:34:38Like so supposedly though, the red light therapy. It’s supposed to help stimulate your like collagen production.

00:34:44Ingo online, read about that red light therapy Ben Greenfield. He has like some in-depth articles about that. Dave, asprey do, you know, remind her to do they, they have some info on their site. You could check their site. You know, so take it at face value. See when, you know what, they’re kind of siding, go straight to the source.

00:35:08There’s that there’s more and more people and athletes and and amateurs, and people competitive using like red light therapy is. So it wasn’t. The only thing I was doing this was one thing I was doing again. I was also use my oils, you know, so I was using like when I was using a lot of Wintergreen eucalyptus I was using like deep blue. Sometimes I use peppermint cuz the Menthol sometimes I use like basil and lemongrass basil has to royal properties and lemongrass can help nourish the tissues in the nerves.

00:35:42So yeah, after a month, I was okay.

00:35:47And I continued on, you know, push-up variations pull-ups and human flag and then working on front and back lovers and handstands, and a bunch of other stuff. And and it’s okay.

00:36:01So yeah, there is a short collection of the injuries. I have experienced some not super serious, some kind of sort of serious. I didn’t talk about it, supposedly winged scapula. I had this, doctor said I had a really bad winged scapula, but then when I was looking at cases, a really bad winged scapula is, sometimes it’s required surgery and severe intervention. And he’s like, no, you’re going to be fine. Just some physical therapy and you never have to see me again.

00:36:31I ended up getting three different opinions and the third opinion was a chiropractor and he’s like, as a little bit, not that bad to get a few adjustments. Do this? You know, I was okay in like, like, what one, or two months, I don’t remember exactly. But I was able to make consistent progress on pull-ups and push-ups and other exercises that require shoulder stabilization. So

00:37:00Always get a second opinion.

00:37:04you know, so I guess I will start to wrap this up, so when you’re injured,

00:37:10take reasonable action.

00:37:13Hey, don’t just ignore it. Take take reason why. And what do you need to do? Maybe you are just going to need a rest a week. Maybe you’re going to need to seek a medical professional right away.

00:37:25You’re an adult and you have choices and you have to, you have to make that choice for yourself. You need to decide what’s going to be appropriate, action, take action, take appropriate action to seek medical attention when necessary, don’t push things, follow the advice.

00:37:45All the advice that you given if they’re telling you not to exercise on it, don’t if you, if you’re going to think about exercising, while you have some sort of outstanding injury, I’ll make sure whatever you’re doing is not going to re-enter it and that’s not going to involve that body part sporchi healing process sleep. Well, don’t identify. Don’t identify with the pain. It’s just there. It’s not you. It’s not your identity. It’s just there and it will go away and you will heal.

00:38:17And it will be okay. And there’s other things that can support the body.

00:38:23Eating good food, getting plenty of protein collagen healthy fats,

00:38:29I’m not having trans-fats right? Nothing transfer at 7. There is a it depends on the injury. It’s really hard to give just kind of general advice.

00:38:42But yeah, so you’re sure I need to an injury. It’s Not Over.

00:38:48You’re going to get better. And, you know, this is just kind of like recreational Fitness, right? Various injuries in a life just happens. I mean there’s a military veteran and they get like, seriously freaking injured and there’s guys that overcome a lot. I mean, there’s there’s one more stories like amputees, like, getting in like, amazing freaking shape.

00:39:12You know, and it’s like and other things even, just like the mental stress, you know, physically. They’re okay. But like PTSD again there’s a military veterans. They get like gnarly PTSD and they overcome that.

00:39:29You know, this isn’t about like Mental Health.

00:39:32You know, but I mean just in terms of injuries and overcoming stuff that’s hard. I’m like, David Goggins

00:39:40He’s overcome.

00:39:42read his books right now that sucks about the second time in this show, and I mention David Goggins,

00:39:53Oh man, I ain’t either read his book again. I got his book can’t hurt me on like Audible.

00:40:03and like what he’s endured and what he’s been able to do that and and the fact that we’re all capable of it,

00:40:13You know, so if you’re injured, it’s not the end of the world, you’re going to get better. You’re going to get healthier.

00:40:22Take reasonable action, follow the advice and medical of your medical people.

00:40:28You know, I’ll be reasonable support the healing process.

00:40:33How do you support the healing process? You know you could consult different professionals, I could refer you to some people, okay? If you’re curious and and you’re not sure again. Like, you know, if you if you seen the previous two episodes, I could put you in contact with Esther, she has a lot of experience and could help you.
