What is defeat? Nothing but education; nothing but the first steps to something better-

Anyone get the chance to catch the season premiere of The Biggest Loser last night?  Neither did we although we hear there are some ground breaking programs and movements being used this season.

The Plan-

Proprioception is our sense and awareness of the position of our body in space and is closely linked to balance.  It is commonly accepted within the Random Fitness community that having a  good proprioception helps to reduce the risk of injury.

So basically, trying to visualize this for all the folks at home reading with a nice mug of Horlicks this fine morning.  Sense that the air, space around you is fluid in nature.  Well it already is but we will have this discussion later in the year.  Too many times we go through a program paying no attention to how we move or all the little things that go into being able to stand upright.  So today no matter what program you may be doing in the gym, at the park or at home: Do It With Your Eyes Closed.

The workout-

Not much of a workout for all you CultFit fire-breathing lunatics out there lurking in the basement.  The program today is more along the lines of the “Divinyls” series of workouts in our archives.

Not for time:

One Hour of Self Reiki

If you are not sure of what Self Reiki is fire up the old Google machine, put down the Android and grab some arnica oil!

Notes:

As you may well know we encourage our dear followers to compete as often as possible during the year and to somehow wrap their goals around them.  We would like you to send in what you are training for and WHY?  Honestly, we are more interested in the why aspect of the question…ENJOY!?!

    I want to compete, but I’m not sure in what. I’ve considered 5Ks (which I used to do before I was in grad school) and lifting competition (which my boyfriend competes in). Any ideas?
