Earlier this year I had a week in the Lake District with my girlfriend and her family friends, we had an amazing time and I would recommend it to anyone!
A week of mountain biking, walking, hiking, relaxing & chilling with one of my favourite people was exactly what I needed.
Part of the trip included the opportunity to go mountain biking, which I agreed to, even though I haven’t rode a bike (as in an actual bike, not spin bike) in a VERY long time, and given that some the guys on the trip were well into biking, I don’t mind admitting I was a bit nervous!
The night before I was advised to borrow some padded shorts to protect the ‘delicate’ parts of the male anatomy……..
Fast forward to the next morning, and there I was, walking a bit strange and feeling like I was wearing a big nappy…
I was questioning whether this was actually necessary, as it seemed a bit overkill in my inexperienced mind….
Oh how wrong I was!!!
After getting about half way around the course, let’s just say I was VERY thankful I had my nappy on!
It’s a unique feeling that only men reading will be able to relate to, but all of sudden the padded shorts made absolute perfect sense!
If you relate this to your health & fitness goals, there is a valuable lesson to be learnt:
>Experience leaves clues…..
If you are unsure about how to tackle your goals or have little experience to draw on in the gym, then seeking advice from an experienced professional will help to you to massively enhance your performance and your results.
Don’t be afraid to ask for advice, and don’t be afraid to embrace something new even if it seems strange like wearing a nappy!
That’s all for today, until the next time
