One of the best things you can do when you exercise is vary the pace at which you do things.
Sometimes you train as fast as you can – provided you can do so with good form. You run hill sprints; you skip rope; you crack out a set of powerful pushups.
Some times you train at a moderate speed, with walking, swimming, bear crawling or duck waddling.
At other times you train at a slow or even a super slow speed. You concentrate on the FEEL of the exercise – inside your body as well as in your muscles.
And just for the thrill of it, you even train at no speed, i.e. holding specific postures for time while focusing on your breathing and the flow of energy.
Recently I taught a group of men and women my “No Rep Workout.”
That’s right. NO REPS.
Simply get into a horse stance or the wall chair position and hold for time while breathing in a certain way.
Then get into pushup position and hold yourself in the half-way down position.
After this get into a back bridge (sometimes mistakenly referred to as a ‘neck’ bridge). As you hold this position, focus on your breathing and stay relaxed. Feel your legs, your hips and buttocks, your lower and middle back, your neck as well as your abdominals get the workout of their life.
These three exercises, as well as the others I teach in Combat Conditioning, have the power to change your physique/figure very, very fast. In fact, they can work so well that you may feel as if you turned fat into muscle – which we’ve been told is a biological impossibility.
You can get started on these exercises and much, much more – http://mattfurey.com- when you’ve got your copy of Combat Conditioning at your side.
Seminar Alert: Last night a man asked me if I was ever going to hold another Catch Wrestling seminar. I said, “Funny you asked. I was just thinking about doing one.” So I have a question: “Would you be interested in coming to a 1-Day Catch Wrestling Seminar this April?” If so, send an email to my office and let me know. What I have to show is very different from anything I’ve ever taught before, integrating both Chinese and Western techniques into one incredible weapon of mass instruction.
