Every ceiling, when reached, becomes a floor, upon which one walks as a matter of course and prescriptive right-
You may need to scoot on over a little bit closer today, just a bit…The talk we would like to have with you is something, let’s be straight forward shale we? Not something you want your friends to overhear or even that pretty little treadmill chica next to you. We all have dirty little bad habits that are deeply anchored in each one of us. As a matter of fact they have evolved into automatic actions during every waking moment of the day. Take Uncle Paul for example: “Normal” dude who likes to stay fit and obsess over his diet. If you ask nicely he will happily pontificate a sweet story telling you all about staying fit and eating healthy…Until the weekend comes and it’s off to the races. Just last week we bet Uncle Paul that he could not match his 5k time from the Saturday (25:40) before to a similar time on the same course on a Wednesday morning. Same course, same time, even conditions…Different day!?!
What was his second time? Let’s just say it was “OFF” by a considerable margin…Which he attributed to being “competitive” whatever that means? Train hard all week recuperating from a weekend competing, rinse and repeat all summer long. Sound familiar dear friend? What we propose is this: Break the habit and become more, well: “YOU”. Free yourself from the habit of perpetually grinding yourself down and awaken yourself to the present, the now. This is going to hurt and will definitely be a process, and you know what? Who knows you may find other areas of your life that need improving.
Pulled from our “Even a kid can do this” Series here at CultFit HQ…Hopefully you are sick of Perfect Push Ups right now:
Warm Up thoroughly as you see fit…Hardy/Flowing Lather, followed by:
Gather up the kids, the hubby or even the chica on the treadmill, head outside and…
Wheel Barrow Relays (Don’t act like you have no idea what this is? Fire up the Google Machine…). We decided to have a competitive program with the victor getting some Hobgoblin as a reward!!!
Sprint 40m out…Last one does the Wheel Barrow back to the start. But before you start on the way back: 20 Perfect Push Ups for both of you.
If you quickly realize that there is an inherent mix match of talent? Simply switch it up and keep the sprints spirited!
Get into this one today, it’s a blast!!! Oh, and 6-10 times through is going to be pretty impressive…
We have a bit of light homework for you this weekend. In between trying to kill yourself running a 5k and sometime before you head off to Whole Foods…Dying To Be Thin.
By all means have a great time if you give the program today a go. And if you do? Be safe and ENJOY!!!
