Compassion is for Chumps …

The most I can do for my friend is simply be his friend-

Those cheeky Buddhist!   Surprisingly, 2500-year-old Buddhist traditions contain some very basic and fundamental truths about our  own  human nature that we are slowly warming up to.   One of these traditions (the one we like to chat about the most) is that humans are inherently social beings!  Our brains are wired for building relationships, love, compassion and working together.  The individualistic,  look at me and my precious life and competition of our modern lives has led to an imbalance not only within ourselves but rather in everything we see around us.  As the Summer Olympics roll along we get a first hand look at the results of this:  Anxiety, Loneliness, Pain.

What’s the point of this post today?   Being compassionate to ourselves is pretty darn cool and not something you should avoid.  When you do finally accept compassion into your life?  We all become more accepting of others, period!!!

The Plan-

15 year old Gold Medalist … Ruta Meilutyte

The Workout-

Our Warm Up today is our Workout, Maybe?!?

Start with a nice Walk and listen to your body.  If you like running (Insert anything here peeps)?  Run after a little bit … Get after it today to the tune of 90-95 max effort%

Notes:

Now this may seem gauche and out-of-place today however seeing that many of our readers are firmly entrenched in the Elite/Warrior/Extreme/Insane/Kranked fitness craze of late?  Allow compassion to move you forward.  Uncle Mo (A true Man’s-Man) is not asking you this today … Rather screaming at the top of his lungs this message of compassion.  Compassion is the key to your fitness and healthy goals!  Try it and ENJOY!!!

Breaking News:  The Summer Olympics started two days ago on Wednesday the 25th, Just saying peeps …

The Plan-

The Workout-

From our “Not Seen at the Box” series of programs …

A nice flowing Warm Up: Trail Run/Swim/Bike Ride and choose five of the following movements:

Mule Kicks, Swimmers, Star Squats, High Knee Skips,  Lateral Leap Frog, Crab Walk, Squat Thrusts, Bear Crawl, Mountain Climbers, Jumping Jacks.

Perform one movement for one minute and then rest for 30 seconds.  Rotate through and  stop when you feel you have done enough.

Finish up with, let’s say?  100-200-300-400-500 … Your choice of Hard Style Kettle Bell Swings.

Notes:

Best part of The Workout today?  Minus the upfront cost of the KB-Bike-You … You don’t have to pay $$$ a month to do this?!?  What’s even better than that?  Chances are in elementary school (minus the KB)?  You did all of these movements and went home after school to watch Arthur.  Have a great weekend and ENJOY!!!
