Had tried many gym and coaches for strength training for my core due to my chronic backache (which I later realised was a disc degeneration problem)..but always end up have more problem and more pain on the back. Was on daily dosage Arcoxia for almost a year until I chanced upon meeting Shaun.
After a few discussions and email on the detail of his training method….I started this barbell training with Shaun; with a lot of reservation..but I was desperate to find a solution to my chronic back problem ( desperate enough to even try acupuncture on my tongue).At the start, I was still quite sceptical on this training as I was constantly told that I “better take care of my back and don’t carry too heavy load”.
After 1st few sessions .. I thought to myself “what a waste of time.. asking me to carry such a light load… I am sure I could carry much heavier stuff..but Shaun advice against it giving me some explanation which I don’t care nor remember…..but I AM SO GLAD I LISTENED
As time goes by, the load gets heavier and we adjusted the training and load according to my back “situations’…And yes.. there was pain…and I almost gave up…(till Shaun msg me to go back)hahahahah.
2 yrs passed… and I am glad that I am able to go back to my running and biking and swimming without the chronic pain and I no longer need the pain killers to sustain my training.
Result speaks for itself… I am a convert.
