It is neat though because as our physical fitness improves, if we allow it our mental and spiritual can as well. We can develop a mind set through the work we put in and see the results manifested in front of us.
Really being fit is more than only physical. It is mental and spiritual as well.
Here are some workouts that I've made, and some lessons I've learned on the way.
5 reasons why exercise is necessary in our recovery is about how different types of exercise effect our brain differently. From helping us hold impulses and addictions at bay (High Intensity Intervals) to boosting our memory (Aerobic exercise), we can surly benefit from adding activity into our lives. I have many links to different free sites to help with your journey here.
Lessons learned from Murph was written after I did the workout Murph for Memorial Day 2018. I trained for this WOD mainly with running, push ups and pull ups. I thought my legs would be okay. The work out includes 2 miles of running, 100 pull ups, 200 push ups and 300 squats, all while wearing a 20# vest. After I was finished a quote came to mind. "In competition we don't rise to the occasion, we sink to the level of our training." I picked it apart a little more and learned that "Our study in times of security will keep us secure in times of stress."
THE MEDDLESOME "My heart started to race. Blood swelled my muscles and with it came a red tint to my skin. I flew into the situation. Wide eyed I got in the oppressors face. Poking at him I yelled "You pussy pick on someone your own size! Hit me!" This is a workout I designed to remind us to stick our nose where it doesn't belong if it's the right thing to do.
Superhero Training 101 is a short work out designed for someone who wants to step up their training. It's a bit advanced and more on the skill side of training rather than strength or conditioning.
Do sucky things so life doesn't suck. Why run with a 50# sandbag 2 miles? When we do things that challenge you mentally and physically we get used to it and our life changes.
The Resilient is a workout I created to do on a treadmill. In this blog I explain how daily gratitude exercises and endurance training will help build our resilience in time. If you aren't much for running or gyms, try rucking. "It's hard to be fired up for our future when we are pissed off at the past. It's time to get off our a$$ and build a body that lasts.
Forget the fatigue and focus on your form is a lesson my friend and I became aware to after I was coaching him through a workout which finished sprinting on a treadmill.
The Disappointment is a workout where I learned a valuable lesson in letting ourselves become disappointed in ourselves. Our growth will become apparent when we become a parent to ourselves.
Recovery, Indifference & Nutrition. 3 Strategies to win will guide you through the importance of caring. Seriously it's so easy to say "eh, whatever." Whether it is about what we listen to, what we eat, or even little things we do everyday. What we put in our body matters and effects what comes out. If we want to change our results change the way we think of the importance of how we nourish our whole self.
3 reasons why milestones are needed in training is about a lesson I learned after a work out I since have named "The Milestone" I hate missing a mark when I know I can beat it. I keep coming up short. I realized later that if I set mile stones so I know where I am at it'd be a lot better for me to strategize. There are two other reasons though other than being able to use reflection to strategize. Check it out!
