Paying attention:) todays lessons as usual.....simplicity:)
SIMPLICITY: Raphael and Mosquito flow like water, most times easy and flowing, sometimes strong...but always flowing....so today i train and listen...sometimes forget and my friends tell me:) haha so then i do my best to flow again....it is constant training:) then we're done and i move on to the same type of training of others and myself...working my best to flow while teaching and even training myself. I find over my many years of training others sometimes it can be very trying, being patient listening to one student while 30 others are waiting for todays lesson...but over time i realized the world will keep spinning if i take a second and listen and then respectfully move on to the training of the class. Or when one athlete is challenging, maybe not listening to instruction...can easily make one feel disrespected and get pissed off....instead i've learned to smile and talk with them about being respectful of themselves and all others as it helps the whole become stronger and develops them as young men....this is flowing like water to me in my teaching.
SIMPLICITY In my own training...i trained my athletes today with a great workout...Boomerang (which will be one of the 8 week cycle workouts) and it's really an amazing workout. Well sometimes when you train and see amazing results happen you want to do the workout as well....but i listened, i did not fall prey to my ego, instead i just said do simple and easy and leave feeling strong and happy and that is exactly what i did...simple and strong:) and it felt great!!
I know i talk on this point alot:) but it is a true point....live simple, do those things that bring balance to your life and restore energy so you feel good as much as possible, eat simple strong foods, move well:)
MBG 1 - do Eischens Yoga daily....sometimes the whole sequence, sometimes i teach class and do the class, sometimes like today i just to one portion...maybe all the prone poses.....SIMPLE:)
MBG 2 - train simple....i prefer doing bodyweight training, sometimes i mix other things like d-balls or kettlebells, but 99% of the time i just train bodyweight...why? because i love the connection to the skills i do in life...run, jump, crawl, climb...because i love the feel of connecting and challenging myself to do higher and higher levels of pure movement....that to me is beautiful and simple...AND it never ends, i can always do higher and higher levels of bodyweight skill training:). Tonight i was tired after a hard day, but still felt a desire to move just a bit...so did a super simple workout, strict push ups, then strict body rows til i did 100 each, stopping if slowing, breathing controlled...feeling great afterwards:)
MBG 3 - eat simple strong foods....from the earth, raw nuts, fruit, greens, beans, some oats, sprouted grains and for sure my sweet potatoes:) today i had
- maca cafe
- oats, nuts, fruit, pea protein, rice milk
- kale, cous cous, pine nuts, cranberries, garbanzo beans, walnuts
- mixed greens, carrots, mushrooms, sweet potatoes, garbanzo beans, vegan sausage
peace my friends,
