How To Workout, Keep The Training Wheels Off.

There is no such thing as a bad exercise, just a bad way of performing it. — Mel Siff.

Couldn’t agree with this more. People must be appropriately challeged in the gym, their brains rewired by being fed rocking, rolling, crawling patterns, along with primal patterns of push, pull bend, squat twist, lunge, built to be bullet proof with strength in these movement patterns along with strength in the frontal and transverse planes where most injuries occur.

I do not put training wheels on people when working with them, the nervous system and stability is not challenged in supported exercises. If one does not have the strength or neurological control in a exercise, descend it, while they still get that motor learning, then load them appropriately as they become proficient in it.

Putting them in a supported environment to.build strength and leaving them there is like learning how to ride a bike well achieving supreme confidence with training wheels on but never taking them off. They don’t don’t have the ability to ride.

I was taught if you can’t you must. Descend only to be able to ascend the exercise movement. Motor learning, strength, stability, is achieved.

We were once bullet proof in primal and pioneer days. There were NO weak links in the body grown from sedentary habits.

We are teaching people to be primal again, feeding their brains through movements the brain once was hard wired well with.

I do not say a movement is bad for a person, particularly when it’s a natural primal pattern. Because that’s our job as a trainer to strengthen their weakness within that movement to build them into that movement.

Putting training wheels on people building strength in such exercises does not accomplish this with those red flags in those uncontrolled ranges with weakness with them still present.

The Best Gift You Can Give Yourself.

The best gift you can give to yourself is an ideal healthy lifestyle followed by working out. Reading the right books as well I may add.

Everything in life is that much better with a strong body and mind. Everything in life comes together that much better.

The ultimate definition of madness is to sacrifice health for wealth. I see people fixing up their houses adding on etc, buying nice vehicles, yet neglect their own health in the process eating like complete shit while looking and feeling like it.

So that is the way to live? To walk around in a body like that and to think distorted thoughts with a mind encased in that??

The real key to life is the QUALITY of life. Not just prolonging it with pharmaceutical drugs while living in a clueless daze.

Take care of yourself. You are all you got. And when you are at your best you have that much more to give others as life itself has that much to offer you in return.

For Increased Quality & Vtality Of Life Learn to Put Back In.

Being an entrepreneur is 24/7 work. With the mind always working and with that stress flowing. People forget that. Our minds are never shut completely off from our businesses and ventures.

Mind cleanse and breaks from constant thinking of the past & future are needed, in other words meditation.

After a day of hard hustling I always love to close it by going for a walk in nature, by a lot of tree…s, breathing deep and walking. It brings you present (Now) and brings you serenity, clarity, to your screaming monkeys mind ( that term from the excellent book Way Of The Peaceful Warrior)

Breathing and walking while shutting off your mind are two of the most powerful things you can do for yourself, to put Chi back in yourself. Since the beginning of time and until the end this will be true.

Every wonder why people age real slow like not at all? Activities like this, cleansing and putting back in and not always stressing and constantly depleting is why.

Everything Flows From This……..

Nothing beats a good deep night of sleep, for me it sets the tone for the day and its the rudder of the day. When I sleep bad I’m a different dude, everything is that much harder for me, i don’t think with the same mindset, or have that drive, but when I sleep good, it’s on, firing from all cylinders, looking through problems at solutions instead of being consumed by them.

Sleep is the life barometer for us all.

Through tens of thousands of years of evolution we are designed this way From the hours of 10pm to 2am is when physical recovery takes place, recovery hormones released, growth hormones etc..

From 2am-6am is when psychogenic/mental recovery takes place.

During early evening hours Artificial light, cell phones, computers etc raise cortisol levels (a catabolic destructive hormone) to prevent you from falling into a deep restful sleep because you are stimulated by the above.

Sleeping outside those hours robs you of precious recovery.

Lack of quality sleep can kill you. It’s the first thing to manage with lifestyle as performance flows off of that, recovery does, aches & pains keep coming, body comp declines, as does mindset, there is nothing without quality sleep.

It dictates everything.
