You’ve seen those sun-burned armpit bodybuilders and powerlifters walking around as though we are still living in the Cro-Magnon era.
Arms are pushed away from their armpits as they walk; arms stay in place as one foot goes in front of the other. It’s a totally unnatural, dysfunctional movement pattern that the ‘roid boys think is cool.
Yet, here’s the interesting truth. A lot of people who don’t work out at all, are damn near totally dysfunctional, too. Although their arms don’t flare out to their sides the way the tanning bed boys do, their arms don’t move when they walk either. This means their torso is full of unnecessary tension, a type of preliminary rigor mortis.
2,500 years ago, in chapter 63 of the Tao Te Ching, Lao Tzu wrote:
“Do easy things before they become too hard.
Difficult problems are best solved while they are easy.”
When we were infants, we didn’t need any guidance on how to relax our muscles. We carried no excessive tension; only using what was necessary to accomplish a task.
Unlike the muscle bound person, the baby will only use its fingers to shake your pinky finger. The baby will not flex its forearms, biceps, triceps, shoulders and lats.
As the baby grows into adolescence, everything that came naturally is now in the realm of lost or “secret” information. Everything from belly breathing to relaxing the limbs to only using the proper amount of force was not only unconsciously abandoned, it’s unconsciously forgotten, too.
The above showcases why I tell people that relaxing your muscles requires far more skill than flexing them.
Ultimately you want to be able to do both, interchangeably, but in order to accomplish this, getting the body and breath to expand and relax is paramount.
Most people already have too much tension, too much steam within. Now it’s time to learn to blow off that tension and steam in a healthy way.
That’s where a number of the products I have for you come into play:
In Healing Isometrics, you learn to get stronger and more flexible by relaxing into your body’s soft tissues. Instead of flexing all the time, you discover the power of emptiness.
In Primate Power, you learn to strengthen your entire body, but especially your hands, forearms, shoulders and torso, by doing what primates have done for eons. Even a monkey, with tiny hands, has a grip that goes from totally relaxed to full-blown power in an instant. Amazing.
And in my Combat Conditioning program, you learn how to move through space and time, developing functional muscles that will help you in sports, martial arts or the so-called “real life.”
None of the above will give you the sunburned armpits look.
All of the above will help turn you into the superhuman fitness phenom that is beckoning you from within.
All of the above will help you to relax and unwind your mind and your muscles, which is something the musclebound people cannot do.
If you already have all of the above and you want more of what el Furecat has to offer, then be sure to become a member of my Innermost Circle.
All for now.
Except to say…
