I got up this morning and cranked out a set of Persian pushups and Buddha squats. Then I did some bridging over a ball, followed by a bunch of isometrics.
After that, I took a trip down social media lane.
Oh… the fitness and martial arts stuff you can observe there …
Some of it makes you want to work out harder and longer than ever before. It’s truly inspiring.
Some of it makes you want to learn something new, something you’ve never done before. It taps into your creative spirit.
Some of it is so extreme, it may make you think you’ll never be able to do it yourself. And you’ll never know unless you give it a whirl.
And some of what you see on social media is downright disgusting.
Frankly, I’m not interested in those who parade around with their big guts and butts, telling me how much they “love” themselves.
Nor am I interested in steroid bodybuilders telling me about the “power of the mind.”
What I am interested in is functional fitness and all that it can do for me, and what I can do with it.
Every day I am grateful for what bodyweight exercises have done for me. It’s been berry, berry good.
At 57 years young, I’m still learning something new in regard to bodyweight exercises and natural movement every single day.
The information appears infinite. What works for you, though, is finite.
As invigorating as it is to always be learning new exercises and entertaining new ideas, the reality is that we don’t need to do hundreds of exercises to get incredibly fit.
Part of the genius of Combat Conditioning is the simplicity.
Three foundational exercises. Do them everyday. Or every other day. For the rest of your life.
Do these exercises each day and get shockingly fit.
Kick ass – take names,
P.S. Yes, I do encourage you to move on to more advanced exercises and routines, if you so desire, such as those we teach in Gama Fitness and Primate Power, but the foundation cannot be ignored. Everything is built upon the foundation.
