New leaves and old roots are what makes a tree magnificent. New knowledge and old principles meld to become dharma. If wisdom of the sages can blend with the new sciences, It would be for the benefit to humanity-
Today’s sign of the Apocalypse: NYC’s most extreme workout
Each and every one of you taking the precious time to read this morning have a unique talent of some sort or another. If you feel the need to decree to the blog-o-sphere what that talent may be? Please leave a comment at the end today. YogaMom/Extreme Fitness Peep? Is this your talent:
Give us a moment to center ourselves here and…Hmm, Hmm Ok…How about entertaining this thought for a second: Dedicate yourself to right now, this very moment! Painfully forget about whether or not you have “found your talent”…How about finding our lives!?!
Sadly in today’s culture, it is so very easy to think that being talented, popular, the mayor of your pilates studio on Four Square or 400 friends on Facebook is the ultimate end goal. From the moment we awake in the morning we are conditioned to believe that our achievements are what makes us interesting, influential, and special.
You know what is important in your life? What truly matters on a deep, heart-felt personal level…is up to each of us!!!
Cleverly pulled from our “Spring Medley” series…
There are Warm Ups and then there are Warm the Joints Up…Two entirely different sexy beasts!
Today we will perform both…Warm Up into a nice lather doing something you enjoy and then Warm Up the Joints:
5-4-3-2-1 Hammer Curls to a One Arm Perfect Press (Feet together, toes actively grabbing the earth beneath you, eyes look through the press!!!) followed by:
10 Perfect Push Ups
Quick question peeps? When you walk are you not performing a plank? And when you perform a One Arm Press? Hmm…Why is it then when you do a plank it looks like hell? Do you walk funny…So on that note how about a nice Plank Medley?
Focus more on form than time today and everyday for that matter…All Planks begin with a Hinge Walk Out!!!
High Plank, Low Plank (chin barely touching floor), Side Planks w/press (look through the weight), Fore Arm Plank…Stand up and with the heavy kettle bells (or any other heavy object – KIDS!!!) you neatly placed nearby earlier: Rack Hold Farmers Walk 40m Out and Back.
How many times through is up to you! 10+ would be something to brag about via a tweet…
Patience, Form, Flow and Grace today dear reader. Have fun and ENJOY!!!
