Our minds are as different as our faces: we are all traveling to one destination; –happiness; but few are going by the same road-

*sniff-sniff* Shhhh, come over quietly: like on your tipsy toes or something.  You gotta check this out…JaJa we had you going there for a minute!  It’s only Uncle Bruce coming in from the turnip field to put his feet up to rest on this glorious Thursday morning.  Another week here is quickly coming to an abrupt end, it’s all good though.  We’re all comfy nestled up close to a cup of green tea, perfect temp and perfect blend(China Green Quince).  Almost forgot about the blueberry bagel in the toaster…while we get that sorted…Feel like a quick game of “Come up with a creative caption?”  So do we,  so with no further delay:

The Plan-

You know the type: “Man my knee sure is sore after the run today.  What time are we going to kill “it” again tomorrow?”  Or what about the peep who laments about all sorts of knee issues  while sporting a knee brace?  Well, we have a game for you: Virtual Knee Surgery(<–No joke give it a GO!!!)

Obviously “Those People” have a deep disrespect for their body/soul and  think life is one big old game where YOU are the most important piece.  Pics of high scores get some goodies!!!

The Workout-

Rest Day…Spring is in the air and your body likes to be out in the elements (so we were told).  If going outside is a foreign idea to you?  Well today would be the perfect day to go for a walk!


We tip our hat to you Mr/Mrs Space Bat…R.I.P!!!  Now only if some of you picking the wedgie out of your crack this morn’ would attack life with the same conviction?!?  Have an awesome day, ENJOY!!!

Remember, you’re as good as the best thing you’ve ever done-

**we are painting with a broad brush stroke today so you may want to put on your Random Fitness spectacles to read today’s post**

Today’s sign of the Apocalypse:

Sad thing is dear reader:  We received over 650+ emails yesterday defending the “Girlfriend” picture…Chew on that for a moment.

How many times do you encounter the following streams of mind cluttering rubbish during the day?  Do this not that, try this it worked for me, that’s too much, you are doing way too little in your life.  Don’t worry: 98.7% of our posts are not like the ones you read every so often…We do need to have a chat about happiness today though.  We spoke about vanity some time ago, so if you are “vain” click away now.  Not long after that we wrote about: Beating yourself up to run a 4 hr marathon, if that’s you click away.  We tend to stay away from diet due to the fact its uniquely personal, if you feel your diet is superior?  Click away now…Love and happiness today.  “Should we not also talk about Santosha?”  Hmm, good point!  Hell lets toss it in here as well…a nice frothy mix of love, happiness and contentment!

Wise man once said “There are two kinds of unhappiness”

1. Not getting what you want.
2. Getting what you want.

(Big High-Five to the peep who can name that “Man”)

Whew, where were we?  There are many, many different directions to take this conversation today although let’s agree now on one guiding principle: You alone are complete.  How many times during the day do you click the “Like” button adding a bit more confusion to your daily intake?  That’s what we feared…Do any of these sound familiar as you look in the steamy mirror this morning?  Restless dissatisfaction, Pressure to be exceptional, Unrealistic achievement (Yup that’s you Mr. 4+hr marathon dude!), Feelings of superiority or inferiority, or both, Excessive fears of being humiliated, Obsessive self-focus.

Without going on or another 1000+ words…Please take away after reading this kind morning: That caring, being happy in your body and a sense of humility go a long way.

Please, honestly take a moment to read this sometime today:  Are We as Bad as the Worst Thing We’ve Done?

We’re not the experts here, remember?

The Plan-

The Real March Madness kicks off this weekend not the water downed invite everyone to the show crap you have been watching for the past week!  Rule out the teams from Michigan to win solely on principle.  Let’s take our eyes out east for a moment to Union College and Cornell: True institutes of higher education!  What a majestic State New York is!  Honestly, any other team could win as long as it’s not Michigan, Western Michigan, Michigan State or any state that borders Michigan!!!

That completes our D1 Hockey coverage for the year, thanks for reading.

The Workout-

Warm Up until you have developed a nice lather…followed by an old favorite of ours here:

Hollow Rocks…30 minutes or so worth!  Yeah that really is The Workout today…Either you will feel horribly uncomfortable later in the day or you will feel quite fine and dandy?  One thing is for certain:  You just don’t flop on the floor and do these peeps!  It’s a gentle process of small muscle recruitment and activation…4 Peeps reading know why this is important?  Are you one of them?


We are going to be updating the links stuff here soon.  If you have any solid-proven-goal oriented program links you would like to add by all means pipe up and send them in!  The program today is a killer, no joking about it!  Be safe and ENJOY!!!

Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired-

Chances are according to our Webz Stats Department: 99.856% of you are going to fill out a tourney bracket sometime today and stress out over it for three weeks or so.  To the peeps reading over seas in lands far away:  You are better off for not knowing what it is, truly you are!


Let’s make sure we have your year in Random Fitness straight this morning:  New Years resolution Failed.  Get Fit for Valentines Day- Failed.  Give up Something Horrid for Lent- Failed…Get Fit during March Madness…Hmmm?!?

How many of you find yourself in this position early in the year?

Over the past weekend we had the unique opportunity to sit down and relax for once.  A chance to talk amongst friends at the pool and the park is always time well spent.  One topic the we have been kicking around for a bit and tossing at you is that of Changing the Definition of Fitness.  Time to put on your “Think outside the box caps”…more to come tomorrow!

Time to turn the cage…page we meant page!

The Plan-

Today’s Sign of the Apocalypse: 

Did you enjoy the Cage video as much as the Kony 2012 video that went viral last week?  This is not a political fodder post nor is this blog for that matter although if we step back and look at the KONY viral video phenomenon we learn a bit about ourselves.  We need some facts first!  Where did we put that darn Google Machine last…

The Workout-

Pulled from our “…On the minute” Signature Series here at CultFit HQ:

Trail Run or Swim for an hour followed by:

“On the minute”…

5 Perfect Pull Ups, 5 Perfect Push Ups, 5 Goblet Squats

Allow the clock to serve as a guide rather than a motivational tool working against you.  Take a few minutes early on to develop a solid flow and rhythm…Then gently ease into pushing progressively harder.


The goal of the Workout today is not to kill it for 30 seconds and rest until the top of the next minute.  Five reps works for us to start and ease into each movement…make changes if you see fit. Develop a flow where you are constantly doing “Something” other than looking like a train wreck…Have a great healthy day and ENJOY!!!
