Re: Aikido, Weight Lifting & Flexibility
I was lifting 6 days a week for 4 years, I gained about 35-40lbs of muscle mass, I had a very hard time with flexibility and carrying the extra weight on my knees. I could barely scratch my back, Now I lift 3 days a week, run 6 days a week in addition to my Aikido training. I also stretch and hang from a bar daily to keep the muscle loose. I lost about 15 of the 35-40 lbs I gained but my body feels much better.
