If you are convincing yourself to do something, you are doing the wrong thing. This is the litmus test-

What a wonderful weekend hanging around doing not much of anything, besides going to the park and enjoying a long walk.  We were pleased as well to wake up Sunday morning with the great news that we have been awarded the Liebster Award from our friend/pal/mate: mymultipersonality.  Thank you so much and shortly (today) we will have a linky thing on the side here that will painstaking show our heart-felt appreciation!

Also, and what a splendid way to start the week: Weight4U awarded us the Versatile Blogger Award!!!  Allow us a few minutes to jump behind the pulpit…

These awards do mean a bunch due to the fact that they signal an investment of time, thought and consideration of the peeps who nominate you.  Basically they read, which in our book is a good thing.  We understand that the posts here at CultFit are not always cute and friendly, neither is life.  You can’t always sit on your “10 paleo diet trick” posts and “do this for ripped abs” fence for long…Dive into the minutia if you like?  Just don’t take an easy stance!

Thank you once again mymultipersonality and Weight4U!

The Plan-

Patterns and loading…Or if you like just go do your program today with reckless abandon?  One of the most primal pleasures in life is watching a little peep take his or her first steps.  Ten to one odds if you can find a scientific article about a peep popping out the womb running (JaJa- Writing in platitudes is exhilarating).  Second to that is watching an “adult” (used very, very loosely) doing yoga or pilates (especially X-Fit peeps) for the first time.  Let’s keep this in mind as we go trough the programs this week…

The Workout-

Not for time and 75 to 80% effort today…Entertain this for a minute:  You know how to go balls out everyday beating the road, the gym.  You are intimately aware of the feeling it provides you.  Is it too much to suggest that working within a set range and peaking at the proper time is foreign to you?!?

Best done outside…

100 Hinge Walk Out Push Ups (10 walk outs – 10 push ups – loosen and lube up the joints, listen to your body this morning) Followed by:

25 Goat Bad Belly Swings Followed by:

25 Reverse Walking Lunges (Thread the needle here, Pattern and Load!!! 5-6 times is cool) Followed by:

25 Broad Jumps (Full Active Hip Extension – Think Long Jumper…Pattern and Load!!!)

Please for the sake of all things holy!!!  Do Not rattle these out like a fool…If 75-80% means little or nothing to you?  Carry on as normal.

Notes:

Be safe today and most importantly, ENJOY!!!
