We tend to specialize toward whatever is easy for us. For some that’s running marathons, but standing still and paying attention feels impossible.
For others, we’ve never felt physically gifted, or strong at all. You can dig into the nature vs. nurture questions. Was I encouraged to be fit? Did encounter too many early failures?
In the end, none of that matters. We’ll keep it this simple. You can do absolutely anything you want, as long as you know how to do it.
“Keep in mind that we are hardwired to survive. Surviving means doing enough not to be dead tomorrow. “
The motivation to thrive requires that we disconnect our decision making from any sense of difficulty. Strain and effort are just sensations. They don’t mean you have to stop or ease off. If being sound, healthy and strong is important to you then let that be your sole focus. Chant it to yourself when you want to quit. If you fall down don’t sweat it. Just get up and start again however many times you have to till you finish your training time.
It’s not hard. It’s just a series of choices to continue working.
In this training video we’ll show you how to cultivate remarkable strength and physical resilience. Doesn’t matter where you are at now. If you can start with the deep stance shown in the video, you go as far as you can. Progress is simple. Each week go one inch further.
Keep you knees tracking in line with your feet. Don’t let them collapse in.
Feeling burning or trembling muscles is just fine.
Remember to breath deeply. Shallow, rapid breaths = less oxygen.
Move slowly! 5-10 seconds down, the same amount of time up.
Start working the Qigong for Strength for 3-5 minutes at a time. After 2 weeks of acclimating add 1 minute per week.
Do this exercise 5 days a week until you get to 30 minutes. At that point you can switch to maintenance of 2-3 times a week.
