For some time now i have been experiencing very bad lower body morning stiffness when i wake.
Im 30, i didnt think i was in bad shape, always need to lose a little fat (thats my major problem) i have actually stopped the weights 90% and been concentrating on bodyweight exercises because of this problem. I wantto be lean, light and fast,agile and strong, mainly for football and for health.
An example of my problem was this morning. I planned to get up early and go for a run and encorporate sprints. I did a yoga class last night which was great for stretching. I woke this morning and was soo stiff!!! I tried to loosen as quick as i could cos i wanted to get going, doing various different stretches which i do everyday. Went out and just couldnt run as good as normal, tried a sprint and pulled my right quad and my lower back started aching.
This isnt because of yoga, but i get this everyday. I need to get quick and lean for football and this seems to be getting worse.
Im waiting for a nhs physio appointment but they generally arent very good and i cant afford a private one.
I have Pavels Tsatsoulines books and have recently discovered mobilitywod.
Does anyone have any suggestions as i dont seem to be improving?
