Well, well, WELL. If you’re wondering about the recent “lack of radio communication” from 0 Excuses HQ, I understand fully.
It’s been a tumultous last couple of days – – and the events that took place are as follows – – me leaving China (something I’ve written about and referenced in the last few posts) – – a place I’ve been for a LONG time, and leaving (of course) my beloved workout park behind as well, “reuniting” after a longish break of sorts with family, and much more.
Key thing to note though that when it happened, it ALL happened in the blink of an eye – so quickly that I couldn’t even say hallejulah. Everything lined up perfectly from the traffic to the final “grab” off the luggage carousel – almost as if it was pre-ordained that May 15, 2018 was the date my trip would occur.
And JUST like it happened in a dream that I experienced around November (end of Nov) if I recall correctly – I was literally GRABBED by a current of FAST moving energy – and before I knew it, I was at my destination – that being India.
Anyway, esoterism aside, it’ll be my home for now – and I should be here for the foreseeable future.
And fitness wise, you’d think that the change of diet, and travel etc would have left me in bad condition upon getting here – and by that I don’t mean physically- I mean mentally as well.
Not a chance, my friend. Although conditions here are very different from what I’m used to in China – my current conditioning levels allow me to adapt seamlessly – with far less “jet lag” or “travel sickness” or anything of that nature that a lot of folks experience.
Anyway, one of the first things I did this morning after dropping my daughter off to school was to scout out potential workout spots – and I spotted a park I’ve been to in the past right along the way.
Perfect place to workout – and do some sprints – – or even crank out some 0 Excuses Fitness stuff right there in the fresh morning air, hehe.
Stay tuned on that one – I’ll be updating you regularly as I did back when I was in China – and there should be plenty of interesting stuff to report from the “land of the spiritual” as it were!
Oh and if you think it’s been a relaxing time thus far (the last couple of days) – well – YES – and NO.
If you’re talking fitness – try keeping up with a sprightly young 4 year old hell bent on wreaking havoc all over the house, hehe.
Most adults – and I’m talking those in GOOD conditioning – could use a lesson or two in terms of stamina and conditioning from young kids – and if you don’t believe me – well – just do what I said above and try keeping up with any kid below the age of 5 or so that hasn’t been raised on a diet of Micky D’s and dumbphones. You’ll see what I mean!
Part of the key to this is the way young kids breathe – which is NATURALLY. From the abdomen as opposed to the chest. Deep inhales and deep exhales – all done WITHOUT thinking about it – and exactly as I’ve described in the System.
And of course, natural movements that kids do naturally for fun without even thinking of it as exercise.
The bear crawl (a favorite of my daughter). The duck waddle. Alligator crawls. And plenty of other good stuff that the average pot bellied adult would do good to even HOLD position in, let alone crank out reps etc for any length of time.
I’ve described plenty of such blubber roasting movements in Advanced Hill Training – and YES – you CAN – and SHOULD incorporate these into your daily routine regardless of whether you’ve got a hill in close proximity or not. I sure will, although I don’t currently have a hill near to me as I did in China!
Alright, my friend – that’s it for now. I’m off to shake my hands out and recover from the pounding they’ve been through while opening the top of the filter in the water dispenser back home. Golly now THAT was a tough ‘un to unscrew!!!
P.S. – Stay tuned for more updates, and my “India specific” workouts as it were!
