One Flight DownPosted: October 15, 2012
The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude-
So why are you limping around today? Rough weekend chasing down the ever so elusive 15 minute 5k? “It was a freak accident dude … This man-hole cover appeared out of nowhere, right in the middle of the road! Who the hell puts a man-hole cover in the middle of the road in the first place?!?”
Here’s the deal peeps, Oh and Good Morning (Let’s get the niceties out-of-the-way before you grab your pitch fork) many of the injuries we suffer cannot be labeled “Freak” accidents. If you get run over by a man riding a buffalo?!? That’s a freak accident! A vast majority of our injuries can be avoided with less reckless activities on our part. There are many examples however here are a few we like the most: Taking a weekend off from running, listening to an old injury, developing the skill of stepping back to reflect. There should be no reason to regret a “Freak” accident although if we listen to and nurture our bodies? There will be an awful lot to appreciate and celebrate later down the road.
Probably the top question we receive here at CultFit is: “How do you perform a Perfect Push Up?”
Warm Up as you see fit and prepare for a little hockey since the NHL blows right now!!!
You can do this either with a wall or another person (Ja Ja Perv). Face the wall or your partner in a High Push Up Plank position (Hinge-Walk Out) about 5 feet apart. Using a dog toy, tennis ball, bean bag or lacrosse ball, try to slide or roll the ball between your partners two hands to score a goal (or bounce the ball off the wall back to you). Your partner may stop the ball with one hand only (same goes for you)!
Keep score if that is your thing and no cheating if you do this alone! This peeps, is how you start to learn the Perfect Push Up!?!
A little random and all over the place today … ENJOY!!!
