Welcome, Tribe! Today, we're diving into a special topic that will revolutionize how you think about your fitness journey.
We’re exploring lesson four from the latest Flexibility Blueprint, as discussed in episode 354 of "The Sound of Movement" podcast.
The goal? To help you pinpoint exactly where you are on your fitness journey and what you need to focus on to level up.
The Confusing Puzzle of Flexibility
Imagine sitting down to solve a 1000-piece puzzle, but your puzzle pieces are mixed with those from a dozen other puzzles. Confusing, right? That's the world of online fitness—overloaded with mixed messages, videos, and training regimes, it's easy to get lost.
The puzzle you’re trying to solve is your current training program.
The mixed pieces?
They’re all the other videos and guides competing for your attention.
The Fitness Haystack
Searching for a coach who truly understands you is tough. Staying updated on the latest methods? Even harder. But don’t despair; solving this puzzle is doable. The secret is focus—discard 80% of the noise, and hone in on the 20% that truly works for you. But to do this, you must first know where you stand on your journey.
Find Your Stage: What’s Your Next Step?
We’ve outlined the journey into three distinct stages. No matter if you’re a complete newbie or a seasoned yogi, there's a path for you.
Stage 1: The Newcomers
If you’re just starting your fitness journey, the key is simplicity. You want a routine that delivers quick results to fuel your motivation. If you’re not feeling more flexible or invigorated after your first session, it’s time to switch gears. For those new to the world of stretching, our 20-Minute Mobility Routine is your go-to option.
Stage 2: The Intermediate Roadblock
So, you’ve been stretching regularly but suddenly feel stuck? This is where you push your boundaries. Target new muscle groups, learn the splits, or master a back bridge. Remember, being comfortable in your routine can lead to stagnation. If you’re at this stage, the Flexibility Masterclass is designed just for you.
Stage 3: The Balanced Approach
Are you incredibly flexible but not as strong as you’d like to be—or vice versa? Stagnation at this stage can risk serious injury. The solution is integrating both strength and flexibility for a well-rounded approach. The UMS Tribe Membership provides this balanced training, perfect for those looking to optimize their fitness during their prime years.
Why These Stages Matter
Knowing your stage empowers you to filter out irrelevant advice. For instance, if you're at stage one, focusing on advanced techniques from stage three will only overwhelm you.
In contrast, if you're already at stage two, then a beginner's routine won't help you progress. Once you identify your stage, you can find the exact tools, techniques, and routines designed for your unique needs.
Conclusion: Your Roadmap to Success
Your fitness journey may seem like a 1000-piece puzzle, but remember, every puzzle has a solution. By identifying your stage and focusing on the right resources, you can solve this puzzle more efficiently.
So, if you want to find out more about your current stage and how to advance, tune in to our latest podcast episode for all the details.
