Born too late to explore the world. Born too early to explore the universe-
Today’s Sign of the Apocalypse: Uncle Mo has set the over/under at 1000. The number of bloggers who are going to lament nauseously, screaming: “Look at this horrible disgusting food I have to eat tomorrow“. Guess we’ll just wait and see won’t we?
How many of you feel your current program is summed up in this pic:
That’s kinda what we were thinking as well. No worries though deer peeps!
Pulled with fear and trepidation from our “Don’t Be a Meretricious Idiot” series of programs here at CultFit HQ.
Our Warm Up today is the following: A little TM and a nice flowing Sun Salutation Series until you find some semblance of “grace”…
Take a moment to wipe the sweat from your brow and proceed with the following:
**TOP TIP– This program is an old Bouldering/Climbing progression we use a few times a year. If you DO NOT have a Rock Overhang/Double Pull Up Bars/Monkey Bars etc. PLEASE sub in Elevated Feet Perfect Push Ups and Elevated Hand Perfect Push Ups. Or just ask us for more ideas!**
30-45 Second Hand Stand Hold (Active and Pushing away from the floor. Your pretty little toes point to the sky!)
2 Hand Release Perfect Pull Ups…Perform one Pull Up and on the second pull- Release, grabbing the Bar/Rock above you. Perform a Strict Dead Hang Pull Up on this higher bar and return to the earth beneath you.
Form, Flow, Grace…10 times through would be pretty cool?!?
If your idea of a good workout is AMRAP or Balls to the Wall/Middle Fingers to Form and Function? Skip this workout today because YOU WILL get hurt…Or maybe you like that in your program? Breaking news!!! Tomorrow is the 4th around these parts and you know what? It won’t kill you to forget about your paleo, gluten-free diet for one day and celebrate like the true ‘Merican you are…ENJOY!!!
We are doing well with fitting our 4th plans into the lifestyle changes we made earlier in the year. I’ll grill some lean burgers, but only enough to be eaten so there are no tempting leftovers. I’ve been going sans bun because I just don’t want those wasted calories, calories I could use for something sweet later in the evening. But we’ll also have the table piled high with fresh fruit and veg, so tomorrow will be a gustatory delight without being a fat-laden pig-out fest.
Great ideas! What you bring up today is something I feel is key to maintaining and keeping your goals in regards to diet: Lifestyle Changes. Cooking “Just Enough”, No buns, Fresh Fruit and Veg. These little things add up over time to have a profound impact on our lives.
Have happy and safe 4th tomorrow! Be well!!!
Thats why I LOVE my Food Program, It is Never Dull! The Body By Vi Challenge is Freakin Awesome!!
The family and I are going to a few parties tomorrow and one of our “Paleo” granola crunching friends suggested we bring some paleo friendly food over to share?!? ITS ON! Beer, mojitos, chips, hamburgers, hotdogs you name it, I’m bringing it. And some beef jerky too just for them. 😉
I hope you and your family have a great – relaxing day tomorrow!!!
LOL!! We are!! Pool Side!!
Me encantan tus posts!!! 😀 I totally share my point of view on life with you!
Vaya, gracias! You write such a lovely and inspiring blog…I always look forward to reading and sharing your stories, thank you!
I like this workout – something for me to strive for. I still can’t do handstands, but I’ll feel like an American Ninja Warrior if I can do the 2 hand release pull ups – woo hoo! Happy 4th to your family!!
I bet with a little practice with the kiddos out on your lovely yard early on a Saturday morning…You would have handstands down in about an hour- Tops!
Learning to fall is the hardest part 😉
Hope you have a wonderful 4th of July with the family!
I hope you and your family do the same this year! Be well and have a blast this 4th of July!
