In my profession as a nutrition coach, it's very common to focus on the big picture items like eating healthy & working out, and forgetting about smaller details like say stretching. I was guilty of it too. You know when I first started working out a few years ago, I did it with enthusiasm and lots of energy. I pushed my body with every workout and I focused on workouts that built muscle, improved my stamina & endurance and which would make the biggest impact on my overall fitness. Yup, I was a badass.
If you’ve trained at the Elite Training Facility, or ever talked to either Clint or myself, you’ve heard us preach over and over again to get your protein in.
