Hey guys, firstly I'd like to say what a respectable community this is. I'm so happy to be part of it. My concern begins with muscle tightness. I've been going to gym for the past two years, and went through a fat loss process, and a muscle building stage. Gym has now begin a life style, rather than a task. Although, my instructor has told me to quit the gym as it causes muscle tightness from lifting heavy weights constantly. I've been doing TKD for around 9 months, and my flexibility has increased, I can kick above my head, although can not hold it. I feel as if this may be holding me back to achieve great flexibility, although I really don't want to give up gym. Does anyone have a plan or any advice to mix the two? (Gym and TKD) So a plan which allows me to build muscle but helps with TKD? Rare, but worth a try. I have been told by my instructor respectively, that I have progressed well since starting and I am up to a blue belt standard. Even though I'm a yellow belt. Hope this helps. Thank you!
