Luck affects everything. Let your hook always be cast. In the stream where you least expect it, there will be a fish-

Take that sun…

The Plan-

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.

The Workout-

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).

Notes:

have fun today and ENJOY!!!

Less than fifteen percent of the people do any original thinking on any subject… The greatest torture in the world for most people is to think-

With New Years resolution  season in full swing now, the vast and overwhelming amount of tips and motivational “pats on the back” can be daunting to anyone trying to get back into the swing of leading a healthy life.

For the blog-o-sphere types, Random Fitness apes and yoga moms telling YOU what to do, CultFit HQ inter-webz  media relation guru Uncle Hayden has this reminder: Most people are visitors to the magical land of fitness, nutrition and healthy living; not full-time residents.

During this full on information blitz in particular, you are often exposed to a lot of information.  Far too often we easily lose sight of what tasty tidbits of information/advice are most important and helpful to us.

This all gets back to you, the visitor here to CultFit HQ.  This is much more of a tool than you may initially think.  Check out some of the links to the side here–>

There here for a reason.  Read the articles we present you with an open mind.  Be mindful that you, you yourself are the best training tool and motivator you could ever need.

The Plan-

Ask yourself these questions today:

What are my goals for the coming days, week, month, year?
What changes do I want to see in my life?
What am I willing to change about myself to achieve my goals?
What will I add to my life? What will I let go of?

The Workout-

Similar to yesterday…

One Hour Swim or Bike followed by:

100-150 Perfect Swings

Notes:

We honestly hope you get our message today, ENJOY!!!

By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he’s wrong

Quick question?  When is 7th best the best?  Answer

Today’s sign of the Apocalypse:

Soon on sale at a "box" near you!

The Plan-

Quick reading for the day to pique your curiosity as you try to fit in with the crowd:  Yoga is killing you silly American!

The Workout-

It should be safe to go back to the gym this week if you dare.  A majority of the Resolution types finally got lost this morning and decided to throw in the towel for the year.

Not for time…

Bike for about an hour (adjust the seat height often up and down to lube up the joints)

100 Perfect Push Ups

Notes:

The bike ride is intended to loosen up the old body today: Nothing more nothing less.  If you abuse yourself by running a lot?  The old knees are happy with you today, ENJOY!!!
