"Our bodies aren't designed to be static but dynamic and fluid systems, and Movement 20XX helped me to figure that out.", Sebastian (USA) shares his experience with Movement 20XX Method.
Sebastian has been playing field sports all his life and like most athletes, he was also well familiar with the conventional methods especially when it comes to standard calisthenics and weight training.
Here is Sebastian in his own words and why he decided to join Movement 20XX:
My name is Sebastian, 32 years old, from the United States of America. I've been training for about 15 years, playing field sports my entire life, and exercising mostly in the conventional way.
Conventional exercise is the reason that I picked up Movement 20XX because I was looking for a different way to express movement and become comfortable doing different things, building strength, building mobility, and building limberness in my body.
When we are young, our standards are low and we tend to focus on the most superficial things. It's hard to realize that health, mobility, limberness and strength are something that will disappear unless they are worked on and maintained.
Movement 20XX is vital for young people to get as strong, mobile and limber as possible but it's even more vital for people over 30 (or 25 even) who start to feel their bodies stiffening up for the first time in their lives.
For people in their 40 to 70, movement training and mobility work can be a newly found fountain of youth that will help you feel the joy of having a limber body.
I ended up getting tremendous results, I had the opportunity to work my way through the lizard crawl regressions and try all the different flows.
I found that the focus on the mind muscle connection allowed me to utilize lower volume, but still develop strength and comfort through the movements.
And a lot of that was based on just understanding tempo speeds, mechanical tension and just focusing on execution and feeling things happen in the right parts of my body.
This is a great point from Sebastian. When you do something right, you don't need to do it as much to get the same results.
In other words, the better you train, the less you need to train. This is an analogy that applies to everything in life. Not all sets are created equal and 5 sets of an exercise that are well done can be more effective than 10-15 sets that were poorly done.
By utilizing the proper methodology (that we cover the most in depth in Athlete 20XX Method), you can make every repetition count and produce the best results.
My body feels great, I feel better now at 32 than I did hit 25 or 22, even. And that's largely because I have been able to continue to build strength and continue to build coordination and build mobility and build time in these positions.
I'd have to say that probably the most rewarding aspect of becoming a member of the Movement 20XX group was the creativity in motion and feeling as if I weren't confined and then constantly finding myself wanting to limber up.
The human body is incredible and can move in almost miraculous ways. When we are kids, we express ourselves without restrictions not just in movement but also in life.
The modern way of thinking wants to put everything into strict boxes with very simple dimensions. When it comes to movement and life, maybe it shouldn't be done.
Any attempt to strictly define the body's movements only puts it into a confined cage. Training and life are like art - there are no limitations and your creativity is almost limitless.
So, that anyone that's questioning whether they should go through with it, 100% It's really a jump off point for anybody, no matter where you are, even the flows, as well as like the calisthenic activities.
You will progress through the six months of training. If you need to stop and do month one, three times in a row for three months, that's totally fine. You will make progress; you will feel better for doing it. And you're going to have fun.
I hope you enjoyed the testimonial. The program Sebastian is talking about is Movement 20XX Method which you can learn more about here.
We also have lots of free training resources available here. When it comes to actual training, the programs have the schedules, programming, tutorials and lessons to get everything done.
