Keep going, don’t stop exercising

An interesting conversation yesterday highlighted the difference in approaches between, let’s say…. me and, well, I don’t know…everyone else.

Ok, I’m being unfair.

Anyway, some therapists advocate rest. A lot. This is never going to work out in the long term. Why? The thing that hurts might stop hurting if you’ve rested but then you’ll be weaker and more injury prone.

It’s obvious when written down isn’t it?

Read the post about backs and you’ll be convinced. And if anyone prescribes rest for you – come see me.

Anyway, thanks to Max for his input.

Here’s a picture of me up a mountain.
