Luck affects everything. Let your hook always be cast. In the stream where you least expect it, there will be a fish-
Many of you know that our line of thinking here at the always classy CultFit HQ goes as follows: Body weight movements trump anything else we do in a program, period!
The logic is that if you can’t efficiently move yourself properly during a program you have no purpose adding weight until you can. The same goes for a bunch of other things: Walking before learning how to run as an example. It’s funny as adults seem to forget this as the years wear on and add up. Old Uncle Sachmo here of course was running as an infant before he learned how to crawl…Hmm why do so many old peeps seem to forget this as they train for their 5 hr long marathon? Oh well, we’re older and obviously so much smarter than a little stinky infant.
Pulled from our “Time to start” series at CultFit HQ:
Bike/Walk…Preferably outside and with a fair amount of effort put into it.
5-4-3-2-1 Perfect Pull Ups (ease into them and develop power from your torso-core-trunk-whatever the experts are calling it now)
10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 Perfect Push Ups and Perfect One Arm Presses (same as above…)
10 Minutes or so of the following:
Find a pace and rhythm and knock out some Goblet Squats for ten straight minutes (key is finding the right weight to push yourself just a little bit).
have fun today and ENJOY!!!
Thanks for liking my post!
Bodyweight exercises are so underrated. When you think how athletic gymnasts and stage dancers are, it’s easier to see.
