Pulled your back? Twisted your knee? Prevent hurting yourself and see what Dr. Frank has to say.
Most older people can't imagine taking part in a 26-mile marathon or a 112-mile bike race. And even if they like to swim, they can't imagine pushing themselves to swim for 2 miles.
That's why my older patients are so fascinated when I tell them about my friend Dr. David Minkoff. David is 71 years old, and he competes in several Ironman triathlons per year! These races combine a 26-mile marathon, a 2-mile swim and a 112-mile bike race into one, non-stop competition!
And while most of my patients don't want to compete in an Ironman anytime soon, they do want to know David's secret. They want to know how he stays so strong and healthy and packed with lean muscle. And they want to know how he keeps himself injury-free.
Well, you can imagine their surprise when I tell them that David's secret has nothing to do with stretching, warming up, lifting weights, or drinking protein shakes. Instead, it comes down to a 5-second "trick" that David does every morning.
Yours for better health,
Frank Shallenberger, MD
