Unless you’ve been in a cave for your entire existence, you’ve most likely heard the phrase, “You’re only as strong as your weakest link.”
Yet, have you ever taken the time to consider what YOUR weakest link truly is?
Most people never do because they’re so broken down and beat up, so tired, weak and frazzled, that they can only think of the reality of their whole body being in ruins.
Not that long ago a friend sent me an email containing real photos of people shopping at a huge chain store. I bet you can guess the name of it. This company employs millions of people worldwide – and the number from China alone probably supasses most countries on earth.
Anyway, to say these people could use a change in diet as well as exercise habits would be to state the obvious. These peoples’ bodies appear to be filled with NOTHING but weak links – yet, even within their corpulent carcasses, their is an inner strength to be found.
Once this INNER STRENGTH is found, a person can almost always reverse the negative current in his or her life.
Right now I’m working with a man who weighed 350 pounds when I saw him in late May. He’s already down to 320. He’s got a good chunk to go – but the key is he’s improving a little bit each day.
First and foremost, he can breathe again. Not that long ago he was out of breath walking across the room.
Second, he’s able to move without pain. At first his knees, lower back and shoulders ached. Now they don’t.
Third, he’s doing Combat Conditioning exercises in ways I’ve not yet taught to anyone other than private clients or to members of the Matt Furey Inner Circle.
This client doesn’t need EXTREME exercise to get fit. Neither does the majority of the whirld.
The basics are still the grand champions of exercise and they always will be. Even so, the basics are not basic. There is a depth and breadth to the basics that the average person will never know.
You can look at the ocean and think, “Is that all there is? It’s just water. A giant ship with it’s heavy anchor looks much more impressive.”
Okay, the ship may look impressive. It’s harder than water. It floats. It moves. It can do all sorts of amazing things including housing people, airplanes, life rafts and helicopters.
But at the end of the day, there are plenty of ships at the bottom of that ocean, swallowed whole and sunken. Once filled with enormous pride, these ships are now nothing of importance.
This is part of the reason that programs like tai chi, yoga and the bodweight calisthenics found in Combat Conditioning work so well. They’re basic. They’re natural. And they’re fluid as well as DEEP.
You can never get too good at them. There’s always more.
You’ll find what I’m talking about here in the Matt Furey Inner Circle – and a whole lot more.
Come join us – and be amazed.
Lots to tell you about it in the day’s ahead – but for now, I’d jump in and start swimming – while keeping in mind that the water you’re treading in is still just the surface.
