As I was taking the shrink wrap off a can of WD-40, I accidentally pressed down on the trigger. I heard the sound of the spray then I saw the cloud coming at my face. To avoid danger, in a split second, I tilted my head to the left and the edge of the spray just caught the outside of my glasses. It was aimed straight for my eyes and I was grateful that my reflexes saved me.
As I wiped the tiny spot of solvent from the edge of my frame, it made me think about my reflexes at 48 years old. Then I started thinking about the up-and-coming world champions and how sharp their reflexes must be.
One such world champion is Marcus Burchett “Buchecha” Almeida. At age 24, Buchecha is ranked number one in the world in his division in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I had the honor of having him lead a seminar at my training center and we developed a work out together that you will love.
There are many components to sharpening your reflexes. While you are doing this workout, every time your feet hit the ground explode up as quick as you can back to a handstand. This will help to improve your fast muscle response.
