Deep Breathing and Dynamic Power
A few months ago I spent time with a health care
professional who really knows his stuff when it comes
Truth is, he probably knows too much. I say this
because he doesn't have a lick of fat on his body -
yet, he doesn't have anything for muscle, either.
Being lean is a goal for many people. But in and of
itself, being lean is undesireable.
Here's why: A lot of very lean people think they're
healthier than others because they don't have much
body fat; yet these same weenies have very little
LIFE FORCE. They have almost zero power.
Much of this can be gauged from a simple handshake.
When a weenie shakes your hand pay attention to
what you feel. No, I am not checking to see if he can
or cannot crush your hand. That only tells you how strong
he is. What I'm checking for is the level of vibrancy or
electricity in the person's hand.
Case in point is the health care guy I mentioned. When I
shook his hand he gave a fairly firm handshake. But there
was no electricity. In fact, his hands sent out sort of a
numb and chilly energy. That's saying a lot when it's 100
degrees out, don't you think.
At another time the guy put his hand on my shoulder to
make a point about nutrition. Once again, the hand was
darn near lifeless. Might as well have put a skeleton's hand
on me. It didn't feel much different.
So you might wonder, why is this. How can someone who
eats nothing but the perfect diet and does a ton of cardio,
running, cycling, etc. - be so devoid of vibrant power.
There are many reasons but the soundest one of all is as
follows: The guy doesn't do deep breathing exercises. When
you breathe deeply and fully and do so from various stances
and positions, you quickly change the vibration level of your
mind and body.
Yesterday I had a group of men in for some coaching. I taught
them some deep breathing exercises and we did them together
for a few minutes. Afterward they felt energy running up and down
their spines, tingling sensations in their hands and heat coming from
the bottoms of their feet.
Two hours after we did the exercise they were still feeling the effects.
These men learned the meaning of the Farmer Burns saying, "Deep
breathing alone has made many a sick man well and many a weak man
He was right.
You cannot ONLY eat your way to vibrant health. That's like putting
a tank and never starting the engine. Exercise is king - but it's got
the right kind of exercise - not just anything. And especially not
I have nothing against long-distance running. If that is a person's
goal I am all
for him. But I will point out the truth, unless you're balancing your
powerful bodyweight exercises, like those taught in Combat Conditioning
as well as the Dynamic
Stretching and Deep Breathing as taught in Combat Stretching all I can say is
running down the wrong road.
It's a good idea to get on the right road with the right program.
By the way, I'll be making an announcement very, very soon about my
Secrets" Universal Health, Strength and Power Seminar, to be held in
2006. You won't want to miss this announcement because I'm going to
that I have never taught before - and yes, that includes deep breathing
and the cultivation
of vital power and energy. Stay tuned.
