Today is yoga for P90X. I am skipping it because of my neck issue. I have mentioned that quite a bit in a few posts.
Let me try to explain to you what is wrong with my neck. I have a very tight spine. The discs around the spine make it tight. What happenens when you do yoga? You get loosen up. In my case it’s good and bad. I can loosen up my legs, but if I loosen up too much that involves my spine, I could be paralyzed for the rest of my life.
Now you might be wondering how on Earth can I do karate? Well good question. I am allowed to do karate because I can learn to block punches from ever hitting me in the head. So it’s safe.
I hope that clears up my neck issue. If there was a 100% guarantee sugery that can fix my neck issue without any problems, I probably would consider doing it.
Every time in karate when we stretch our necks, I always go slow so I don’t get whip lash. Other people in my class sort of rush it.
How are you doing with your workouts? I hope you are making great progress!!
