If I knew what I know now when I was younger I would have looked after my body a lot better than I did.
As a sparky young and healthy male, I thought I was invincible. Little did I know that the risks I took as a young buck would one day bite me on the backside.
I would say to all young blokes who think they are bullet proof, take care of your body; your back, and your joints.
You’ll need them one day more than you’ll ever understand. When I look back and think of all the times I lifted and shifted heavy objects and didn’t blink an eyelid to the strain I was putting on my joints it horrifies me. Look after yourself when you’re young and you’ll appreciate it when you get older.
