True rebels hate their own rebellion. They know by experience that it is not a cool and glamorous lifestyle; it takes a courageous fool to say things that have not been said and to do things that have not been done-

Workout Thoughts and Notes

The “run” could be rowing, biking, swimming or even carrying a bag of cement from the garage to your Spring project awaiting you somewhere, maybe?!?

Honestly think about this next thought – How many times during the day do you bend over to pick something up? Each time you do, make a mental note to perform a nice “goblet squat” instead.

The “push up“, is your best friend in life for one simple reason: You yourself, are the best piece of training equipment you could ever have.

CultFit Ready

If you believe everything you read, better not read-

Today’s sign of the apocalypse:

THIS

Stay classy dear friends…

We have been asked numerous times in the past to provide some sort of evidence that there really is a CultFit HQ.  So to quell all the lurkers…

The Plan-

We get asked all sorts of questions around here from day-to-day.  A classic example of one:  “Like yo bro’s I have tried all the programs out there on the inter-webz and nothing seems to work?”

The answer is surprisingly simple and we have secretly been throwing it towards you since our first post some time ago: Walking and Meditation – Simplicity in form and function.

On any given day Uncle Pliny is working away on the Amiga scanning email, finally he has reported back with something tangible:  Only .98% of our readers are truly exceptional and gifted athletes (re-read that again aloud pretty please).

To put it nicely for all the fragile types reading this morning sipping on a horrid tasting VitaCoCo (dare we say the Stella Artois of coconut waters?)  You are hopelessly addicted to a failed fitness/health relationship.  We need to look deep whiten ourselves and become aware of the decisions we make in regards to fitness and health.  Only when we are completely comfortable with ourselves will we be able to put a foot forward in good faith to a better lifestyle.

The Workout-

This workout was provided by a dear friend of ours, Sister Harriet.  No she didn’t take from that Pinterest site thingy (we hope):

Warm-Up any way you see fit followed by:

In this order- Planks-Inversions-Perfect Push Ups-Goblet Squats-Reverse Lunges (we know, dear reader you are creative so…this is what we did here at CultFit HQ)

Hinge walk Out High Plank Hold for 45 Seconds (walk back to hinge)

Ease into a Hand Stand Hold for 45 Seconds (tippy toes do not like your hands – gently pull them as far apart as possible) with GRACE come back to standing (feet together remember?)

Hinge Walk Out High Plank Hold – 10 Perfect Push Ups (walk Hands Back to standing)

25 Goblet Squats (oh, you did remember to bring some weight?)

25 Reverse Lunges (weight at heart center)

Rinse and Repeat about 10 times or so…If you peeps out there have a fave program that you would like to share that is not from Pinterest please send it in!

Notes:

Be safe today and most importantly, 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!!!

Learning is not compulsory… neither is survival-

Hopefully everyone made it home in one piece after Halloween last night.  The individual below on the other hand…

The Plan-

It’s time to be completely honest with us here at CultFit HQ Random Fitness peeps.  How many of you just roll right through your given workout without giving any thought to what you are actually doing?  We thought so and it changes today.  Listen to your body the rest of the week…

The Workout-

Not for time…

20m Heavy Farmers Walk…Followed by:

20 Perfect Push Ups

3 Goblet Squat Holds

We prefer you do this first set barefoot for the following reason:  Actively spread your toes during each step and grip the floor beneath you.  If you feel you are a danger to your well-being and stand the chance of dropping the weights…Don’t.  Every movement we do is under control and planned with a purpose.  Heavy Farmers Walks give us the perfect opportunity to perform  single rep dead-lift right?

20m Heavy Farmers Walk…Followed by:

20 Perfect Push Ups

3 Goblet Squat Holds

Quick feet this time while still gripping the floor.  Big chest and chin up, paying more attention to your core stability.  Open No thumb), loose grip on the weight.

20m Heavy Farmers Walk…Followed by:

20 Perfect Push Ups

3 Goblet Squat Holds

Gently and importantly, under control lean forward and let gravity assist during this set.

20m Heavy Farmers Walk…Followed by:

20 Perfect Push Ups

3 Goblet Squat Holds

Notes:  During the last set put all the pieces together and walk it out until your grip fails you.  ENJOY!!!
