Beware Dangers of Stretching

March 4th, 2015

It’s an amazing thing to watch.

You’ll see a professional athlete out on the field stretching his hamstrings before a game.

And in the same game, he pulls a hamstring and has to leave the field.

There is a danger when it comes to stretching – especially when you do it right before exercising or competing.

The danger is you may be increasing the likelihood of injury. At the very best, you most likely reduced your ability to perform.


Because too much energy went into stretching your muscles – and it weakened them.

Studies show that you’re better off stretching AFTER you train – not before.

Yet, there is one form of “loosening” that I highly recommend BEFORE you train or compete.

It’s not static or even ballistic stretching.

It’s joint loosening.

And if you do your joint loosening exercises the way I teach, adding a major dose of CHI – or vital energy – to the equation – then you’ll enhance and improve your performance.

As I was taught years ago, all these people who are stretching their muscles all the time, fail to realize that you want to increase range of motion in the joints. You want your joints to be loose and pain-free.

Joints that are pliable and flexible are more important than muscles that are loose. Why? Because joint looseing effortlessly increase flexibility in the muscles.

Another thing I learned in China about joint looseing is that it pushes stagnant energy or chi from the area. When you do this, not only does the old energy leave the joint – but positive, healthy chi flows into it.

This is why, when you do my Chi Joint Loosening exercises – you begin to feel better and have a much calmer mind.

You’re not trying to think positive – yet all of a sudden, you are – and at first it’s inexplicable. Why do you suddenly feel so good? All over?

It’s because the energies of the body are put back in harmony. They’re given balance. The energies that no longer serve you are pushed out so something better can rush to the rescue.

If you look at others who are in pain – it’s almost always in the joints. Painful knees, ankles, hips, shoulders, elbows, wrists and of course, the neck and back.

So what’s your solution to tight joints going to be? Weight lifting? Running? Stretching? Cardo machines?

None of the above deal with the joints – except in a compounding way. And by that I mean, compounding the stress, increasing the pain.

As a member of the Furey Faithful, you can follow along with me and loosen your joints on a daily basis. I’ll be right there with you guiding you through the Chi Loosening exercises.

Plus, there’s a ton more that you’ll find once you’re behind the closed doors and able to see the abundance of positive life-changing exercises and information at your fingertips.

Come join me and the others.

Exercises that Age You FAST

December 10th, 2014
You may know someone who started training at a gym doing hard-core workout routines involving heavy lifting, running and so on.

Next thing you know, they’re injured. Bulging discs, ruptured discs, torn up knees, shoulders and so on.

Maybe, just maybe, this type of training is more suitable for athletes and reasonably fit people under the age of 30.

Is it a BAD way to train? No and YES.

It’s bad for many people – but good for some.

If you’re one of the “some” – all the power to you. But if you’re not – well then, pay heed to what I’m about to ask you.

For many, many years, I trained in ways that would make most billy goats puke. I read the ancient Chinese wisdom that talked disparagingly about hard-core training methods, including running, weight training and so on.

And I DID NOT BELIEVE THEM when they said that these types of exercises “age your body faster” and “reduce the flow of chi or vital energy” in your body.

Today I KNOW that what I read so many years ago is true.

Last month I had a client come to me for some training. He said he was bigger and stronger than ever before and now he wanted to learn how to increase his CHI.

I did a couple exercises to test him.

He couldn’t do the most basic things that I asked him to do.

His body would lock up on him when he began to squat and lower himself toward the ground. His lower back and knees would tighten and his heels would come off the ground.

I told him that stiffness is one step removed from being a corpse.

On the other foot, a body that is supple and loose, it’s full of LIFE, it’s full of vitality and energy.

Last week this client sent me a video of himself doing the same bodyweight squat I taught him. Before I even watched it I could see he’d made progress.

This time he was able to go into a full squat without pain and with his heels flat. His lower back no longer locked up on him. He was much looser, much more flexible. I gave him a number of pointers to take him to the next level and he was immensely grateful.

So it’s amazing to me that people are in the gym lifting weights, making their muscles tighter and stiffer when they cannot do the simplest exercises with their own bodyweight.

The weight training is literally robbing them of vitality and energy as it makes them worse while giving the illusion that they’re better because their muscles are bigger.

The above illustrates just one of many reasons why the Furey Faithful is the best place on the Internet to learn exercises that are going to give you LIFE instead of taking it from you.

On this extraordinary Member’s Only Site – you’ll learn what my client paid big bucks for in private. You’ll also learn a TON of other INTERNAL EXERCISES that will change your life from the inside out.

These are exercises that will help virtually anyone, regardless of age or athleticism.

And as you read, watch, practice and improve – you’ll be given MORE instruction.

Many members have written to tell me that the Furey Faithful is the BEST fitness decision they’ve ever made.

This makes my day.

Come join us. You’ll be glad you did.
