Bear some stress, bear some sorrows, Biding for time, quash some of your foes. In this drama called life, always act mindfully; And revel within yourself-
Before we get too far ahead of ourselves on this fine morning a few questions are in order. Are you addicted to over training and injuring yourself? We know you don’t do it on purpose and repeatedly injuring yourself is unintentional, or is it? What we are trying to discuss with you this morning is that the outcome of your self-injury often leaves a permanent mark on your life. Whether or not your intentions were pure in the first place.
Do we dare tread the murky waters of the addiction stream today? No, although the addiction you have to injuring yourself is eerily similar to the release of your emotions. Unlike talking to a friend, a running partner or your spouse about aggression, fear and self hate. The tools you employ in injuring yourself while running, lifting and engaging in Extreme Fitness routines give the reliable and predictable response you desire. Your actions cannot fail you in the same ways the people in your life can.
Just as some prefer not to workout, to stay at home and cut themselves…To party too hard on the weekend, waking up in regret because of their actions the night before. Are your actions not the same? Which one is worse?
These women all 127.6lbs of them are truly Gifted and Exceptional athletes. Their lives have been dedicated to lifting/sport and achieving at the highest possible levels within their respected discipline. Did they watch a Reebok CrossFit commercial recently and just as quick as you can snap your fingers…Started to move around some serious weight? Nope, not even close! Is this video inspiring, yes! Motivational, you bet! An invitation to destroy yourself in the pursuit of who knows what, absolutely not!
Whew…Talk about building some tension in the room? If you made it this far into the post, Congrats! Time to roll up our sleeves to do some honest work…
Warm Up as you see fit into a thick, hardy lather and proceed with the following:
3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3 Perfect Pull Ups (Lengthen and Stretch, Nice even pulls, Change grip on each set) Alternating with…
45 Seconds of a High Push Up Plank and a Low Push Up Plank (Actively Push Away From the Floor, DO NOT Settle into these, PUSH!) Pull Up/Plank…You get it?!?
Once you go through the above…
Whatever you choose to do as your Warm Up today, Redo it with passion and conviction! Really get into it, safely!
An end to another long week is upon us and deservedly so in our book, we all deserve a little “me” time and rest. Be safe this weekend and ENJOY!!!
