More wisdom is latent in things as they are than in all the words men use-

We all have a story to tell.  Like all stories we hear during the day some are rather glamorous and full of picturesque examples of our daily lives.  While others may be dark and rather bleak shared quite often enough by the pugnacious people we choose to surround ourselves with.  Maybe one of them is the trainer at your gym who swears by the FMS system yet overlooks and misunderstands basic human movements.  Or what about the chica who just finished a tough round of tabata’s yet has no idea what a VO2 max is?  Is it a new energy drink or something?!?

Over the weekend a group of friends gathered for a light program here at CultFit HQ, nothing special or out of the ordinary.  The flowing current of the conversation hinged on nothing more than honest open dialog aided by a warm cup of tea.  That is of course until Uncle Mo decides to spout off: “Why is it that people today get offended when you care about them?’  Interesting question?  “…Its my goddamn life jerk!  If I want to injure myself running?  Why should you care!”

We are adopting a scorched earth policy this morning and will be throwing every one of you under the proverbial bus.  Ready?!?  The “people” Uncle Mo referred to usually try to wedge into a conversation…”I’m a vegan who ran a marathon and got my dogs from a shelter.  Also I only feed my shelter dogs Whole Foods vegan dog food because it gives them the energy to run with me when I train for marathons.  Oh, and why does everyone here at Oxford feel the need to stop and ask me about my MacBook?” <—This dear reader, is the template of every blog you will read today!

If you feel the need to opine?  Your argument better be as strong as this:

Tommy Godwin’s ‘unbreakable’ cycling record

True Humility is a virtue here at CultFit.

The Plan-

Humilis…We’ll be poking you in the ribs about humility all week or you could just imagine that our thoughts are leaves floating by in a stream.  Do not respond to them; just let them pass by.

The Workout-

Today’s program is brought to you by our dear old Uncle Pliny.

Not for time…

Pranayama, Sodarshan Chakra Kriya and Breath of Fire Kundalini Pranayama followed by:

Nerve Glides and Leg Drains (It was a stressful weekend here!)

From what we hear the Google Machine is a wonderful invention?!?

Notes:

For the next fortnight we would like YOU to write in and share YOUR favorite program with all of us here!  The only thing we ask is that you provide us with a brief description why this program is important to YOU (In ten words or less…hmm?).  Please accept our gift of a flower as forgiveness for being cantankerous on a lovely Monday morning?  Be well today and ENJOY!!!

    Reblogged this on InspiredWeightloss!.

  2. my fave workout programming has to be CrossFit… after programming therapy routines and treating athletes all day long, I just want a trusted professional to run me through the ringer. Plus, I get bored quickly. Variety is my friend.

  4. Haha! Humbled. Thank you 🙂

  5. Thanks for liking my Hawaii post and have a great day! 🙂

  6. Outdoor bootcamp classes are my personal fav – it’s like recess for adults who like to work hard.

      Honestly I have never been to one. I hear they are so much fun to try? Living life like recess would be great if work would not get in the way 🙂
