Doing Memorial Day/Travel Workouts the "Right Way"

Do yourselves a favor and read Tim's Blog Post. Tim is the founder or Original Strength and a mentor of ours. He keeps it simple, concise and to the point: Don't let a holiday weekend or summer travel keep you from moving. Also, don't let it stress you about how hard it needs to be. You can rack up some serious "time under movement" and not feel like you got hit by a truck afterwards and sore for days.

Follow his sequence laid out in the blog post:

Basically this is an ascending to descending ladder. This video link will detail all three movements. Please note the video uses a rocking push up. Most people will have a hard time doing 100 proper push ups, so as a regression I replaces the push up with the rocking pushup. Use caution obviously. If you are coming off a period where you haven't been moving a lot or are new to these patterns. Start at 50%. Your body will thank you.

If it Feeds Your Soul, it's Self-Care.

Self-care is “the verb of self-love.  It’s really just saying, ‘How do I put into action loving myself, and reminding myself that I value my time and deserve nice things'? If it makes you feel good, it’s self-care. If it feeds your soul, it’s self-care.”

Where is your Focus?

It’s a simple question. One of my favorite questions to ask as a gauge towards my alignment with truth, love, and abundance. Bringing awareness to your current focus can tell you much about where you are headed and what you are attracting as a result.

See Yourself There; That's the First Step.

I'd love to share the advice that I wish I had known earlier: please make sure to catch yourself if you are someone who puts yourself down or buys into the saying that "we shouldn't get our hopes up" or that a goal has to be "reasonable."

Your Toast is Ready!

I am often asked:  do you get adjusted too Doc?  How often?  Through the science of simply listening to my body, I have arrived at the number ten.
