Integrity without knowledge is weak and useless, and knowledge without integrity is dangerous and dreadful-

Today’s sign of the Apocalypse:  Receiving 3478 emails from concerned yoga/X-Fit moms after we poke fun at their choice of water in a random blog-o-sphere post.

Now here is a really thought-provoking question this morning peeps:

Would you be your own friend?

Not to pull anything from the link above although we have been kicking the idea around here for sometime if you actually read this blog instead of just clicking the like thingy on a daily basis…?

Uncle Rufus always said: “The best way to answer a question is with a plethora of new questions.”  Feel free to put on your Random Fitness cliché glasses at any time:

  • Would you enjoy working out with yourself?
  • How far would you run/bike/swim before you decided to choke’em out?
  • Are you visibly upset after looking in the rear view mirror on the way to work, the gym or the local co-op?

Hmm lots of deep, textured, thought-provoking questions today.  Sister Grace recently (as in yesterday) emailed us a question that we feel a vast majority of our readers ask themselves almost daily:  “I want to run a marathon next month and compete in a triathlon later in the year.  Problem is, I despise running and take no pleasure from it.  How do I go about reaching my goals?”

Let’s leave that alone for a bit and let it marinate in your brain…or until you read about 10 exercises to improve your super-human abilities on the blog-roll?!?

The Plan-

The Workout-

From our “Not sure what to call this” series at the palatial CultFit HQ:

Pull up your Google Machine and query away “Proper Calisthenics”…Find one program to your liking and perform it for, let’s say 25 minutes.  Followed by:

One, Two or Three Perfect Pull Ups (change grip each pull)  followed by:

20 Thread the Needle Reverse Lunges- Each Leg (may want to Google Machine that as well) followed by:

Sprint!!!  Back to bar- Rinse and Repeat about…Hmm Ten times maybe?!?

Or "yourself"...

Notes:

Sneaky little one, huh?  Time to chime in peeps:  Who flopped all over the place yesterday?  It’s cool and a process to say the least!  You would be amazed at how many people just pick a Random Workout due to the simple fact that it looks nice and spiffy.  Anyways have a splendid day and ENJOY!!!

    It is hilarious and not at the same time… “Instruction manual for anything that is difficult”. That about sums it up for many people.
