Fitness For Freedom Tips

Fitness For Freedom Tips is a new type of fitness and health show. We deliver fitness tips that you can apply to your life right away in 10 minutes or less. Lets face it you’re busy and life pulls you in all directions. You want to be healthier, but living a healthier lifestyle is hard. It requires you to change and there is a lot of misinformation out there. We work hard to syphon through it to give you the most sound advice possible and set you up for the greatest chance of success. Jonathan Chant has been working with people to live healthier lives for 10 years now and he’s seen it all. That’s why he founded Fitness For Freedom, your complete online fitness training and lifestyle design community. He pulls out all the stops to help you make the changes yourself. No transformation challenges, no extreme changes just solid strategies to help you make changes that will stick for the rest of your life. Change is constant and you’re going to have lots of questions as you go along that’s why we keep our episodes short so they don’t ‘eat in’ to your already ‘stretched’ lives (puns intended). We try to have some fun with it too! Exercise doesn’t have to be boring? So what are you waiting for? If you’re still reading this you’re definitely interested in the show, so give it a listen.

It’s Q & A Wednesday’s and our question is in from Greg who has this question or issue we’ll call it - I dislocated my shoulder playing squash about 8 weeks ago when I fell into the wall. It hurts when I do some exercises like push-ups and bicep curls and I'm afraid I'll make it worse; how do I know what exercises I should and shouldn’t do?

Thanks for this question Greg, we all deal with injuries at one point or another and I’m not 100% sure I can help you here, but I’ll give it my best shot so don’t go anywhere.
