To keep things rolling in the spirit of fitness, I have another great video I want to share with you. But first, let me set it up for you.
A lot of you who are stuck in the house from COVID-19 have, at this point, reserved back into your basic calisthenics routines or your home gym. Now some of you might never have worked out a day in your life, and are officially about to start.
And this is who I’m speaking to in particular. I’m speaking to you, who are just beginning your fitness journey. There are a lot of things I wish I had known before I did my first calisthenic set. There were a lot of preparatory principles I wish I knew before I walked into a gym.
This is why I want to share this video with you by Mike Thurston. He touches on points such as learning proper form and to move a weight you can handle before overload.
He also touches on the importance of doing everything outside of the gym that compliments your time In the gym. So without further or due, let’s get to the video by one of the UK’s best trainers.
Check out his wisdom and let me know what you think.
Control is a word that I’ve always heard mixed feelings about. I’ve heard that:
“None of us are in control because we’re on a giant ball in space, spinning at a few thousand miles an hour, so what’s the point?”
I’ve also heard:
“You must maintain control in your life at All times if you want to make it out here.”
So I generally agree with both actually. I do believe that we have absolutely no control in the fate of the planet and its universal orbit. I also believe, however, that you have complete control over the choices you make on a daily basis.
I found this video from a Youtube channel I follow called Top Think. I watch videos from this channel all the time but this one is special, especially in these current times.
It’s on building self control in 10 simple ways. Topics like this always resinate with me because self control is something that I’ve struggled with in different aspects of my life. Number 3, for example, touches on the importance of the “Doing” mentality vs the “Trying” mentality.
It’s amazing how much a word change can open up a different kind of motivational attitude. Check it out and let me know what you think.
We are still in the midst of this Coronavirus pandemic and, unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like it’s going to be over for quite a while. I’d just like to say keep strong, remain vigilant, stay in your homes as much as you can and keep your body moving in the meantime.
I found another home fitness workout that I’d like to share with you. Seeing that we’re going to be in this for a while I don’t see why I can’t just share these as I find them.
There is never too much you can do when it comes to being creative with your home workouts….as long you’re being safe in the process. Before I got into the gym life I worked out all of the time at home, so trust me when I tell you you can be very productive with a little creativity.
My favorite exercises to do in the beginning of those times were traditional calisthenics. Pushups, pull-ups, dips, planks and crunches done in different variations. The videos I share will be just that…a variation of ideas to do calisthenics in push, pull, upper, lower methods.
Today’s video is by Jeremy Ethier, certified by NASM and FMS (functional movement screening), and a Kinesiology graduate based in Vancouver, Canada. His video tutorials are among the elite in health and fitness.
Check it out and let me know what you think of his approach.
