Ross’ Calisthenics Story
Ross is limited in his movement range in his hips. He’s had two hip arthroscopies and has reduced eyesight. Calisthenics is a program that allows him to train in spite of those limitations.
“I didn’t really know what this meant at the time.”
Aside from the experience of having reduced hip mobility because of the impingement, his eyesight also began to diminish.
“RP is a condition of the eye which slowly gives you blurs. I have lost my license as a result.”
Ross wasn’t dealt an easy hand in life. His hip and eyesight issues were limiting him to what he could actually do with his body. So while he looked for a healthy training routine that would work with his health issues, Ross went through strength training, cconvict conditioning, kettlebell training, until he finally found his way to Calisthenics Academy.
How Ross found Calisthenics Academy
Ross went in search of a training program that he could use after his first hip arthroscopy. He wanted to find something that would give him the freedom to train without a gym.
“I came across Calisthenics Academy when it was in the book form and was invited into the online version, which I took.”
It’s been a year or so since then, and Ross continues to use the Calisthenics Academy program even today. There’s a level of convenience to an at-home training program for someone with Ross’ predicament. Using Calisthenics Academy means that he doesn’t need to travel.
It also means that he doesn’t need to track his own progress, thanks to the program’s algorithm.
The 2 main benefits Ross has gained since starting Calisthenics
His hip pain has reduced
These issues all compile to create a lot of discomfort, slightly reduced range-of-motion and quite a bit of pain most of the time.
Thanks to the Calisthenics Academy program, Ross has been able to develop a more comfortable range-of-motion and reduce the amount of pain his hip causes him.
“The pain I get in my hip has reduced.”
He’s gotten stronger
Ross has experienced the benefits of this shift in mindset first-hand.
“I have noticed I feel different – not just stronger physically but also I think I am mentally stronger.”
