The drill is simple. The lesson is too. The reward is awareness and long time health.
Let us take the pull up as an example. Take a time frame such as a minute or two and try to do two things:
- Keep in movement during the entire time frame.
- Move as slowly as you can.
This drill is trying to most when choosing the pull up but you can build up to it over a duration. Keep in your mind that it is the hunter that returns home which feeds his family. Not the fastest runner.
1. We are used to little or no sleep while performing lifesaving delicate tasks and keeping that status for years and years.
2. We are used to immerse ourselves in constantly changing and evolving cultures and learning new languages and symbolism every day.
3. We are responsible for both short term and long term planning and being accountable for what we do by our success rate.
4. We are always on call like the ancient minute men and always work until the job is done.
5. We are bringing people up and helping them find their independence and place in society.
6. We are technicians, medics, logistics, planning, security and surprise party comity all in one.
7. We are good patient listeners and always see a way to keep on going.
8. We are constantly dealing with red tape and forms and coding and navigating the world for the entire ship.
9. We will go on to bring you up, to protect you and to guide you to independence even if broken and beaten.
10. We will die to protect you without batting an eyelash.
Playing with what is in front of you creates new movement and thoughts. Don’t worry about looking good. Feel good.
Here are simple and effective movement drills with no weights or gadgets or a T shirt to buy. Just listen to yourself and keep healthy and moving.
If you have ever worked on a sailboat, you know to be weary of a rope on the loose. In these two videos we show how to both unleash and recoil this rope within ourselves.
Keep safe and see each other as people instead of targets.
