Brett Klika and I kick off the Inspire Millions project with this super-creative 2-minute challenge that anyone can do at home.
All you’ll need is a sports cord (you probably have one laying around the house), a few books, and 120 seconds of free time!
Brett and I have a goal of impacting 1,000,000 people around the world, encouraging them to eat, think, move, and live well. Please help us out by sending this blog/video to a friend.
As much as we’d love to touch a million people overnight, we’re all about baby steps! We need your help getting 5000 views. Once we get ’em, we’ll post the next challenge. It might be tomorrow. Maybe next week. It’s really up to YOU!
Let’s Inspire Millions together!
Here’s today’s Friday Fun Day workout:
1. Reverse Lunges with Resisted Retractions – 40 seconds
2. Book Agility – 20 seconds
3. Resisted Wood Chops – 20 seconds each side
4. Surfers – 20 seconds
Get off your butt RIGHT NOW, clear out a few feet of space, and get cracking with this two-minutes of fun and fitness!
Tell us how you did! Or get it on video and post it on our Facebook pages:
Americans are no longer chubby, portly, or overweight.
We are corpulent, obese, and rotund. We don’t move like humans are supposed to move.
We don’t eat like humans are supposed to eat. We are not just merely dying from this plight, we are suffering.
What would happen to a Cheetah if we fed it Cheetos and made it sit idle? It would get sick, it would get depressed It would develop pain, and die.
Why? Because Cheetos are not what Cheetahs are supposed to eat, and sitting idle is not what cheetahs are supposed to do.
As cruel as the above treatment may seem to an animal, many Americans live, embrace, and defend their “right” to this scenario. After all, there is a robust, nearly unchallenged industrial machine to support it. Unchallenged, until now.
This is a call to action.
A much higher calling than sculpting a six-pack, toning thighs, selling gym memberships or slinging miracle supplements.
It’s a call for our society to lift each other up off the couch and move.
It is a call to educate each other to eat food instead of chemicals.
It is a call to INSPIRE MILLIONS to stop suffering and live like humans are designed to live.
You don’t have to be a personal trainer, life coach, or physician to grab a loved one’s hand and say “let’s go for a walk”. How do you know if you are walking fast and far enough? When someone no longer needs to pull you off the couch to go for a walk. You don’t have to be a dietician, nutritionist, or chef to select food that is actually “food” and not merely a chemically-induced taste. How do you know what “real food” is? The ingredients list should be the food itself. For meat, well, if you know what the animal’s name was prior to being on your plate, it’s probably safe to eat.
We don’t have to be hot, ripped, toned, shredded, sculpted, or beautiful. We need men, women, and children to get off the couch, stop eating poison, and get out of pain. Everyone can contribute. Do something today, right now to change the way you live or INSPIRE someone else to do the same. It may not happen overnight, it may take time. Person by person, household by household, city by city, state by state.
Working together, we can stand up and INSPIRE MILLIONS to be happy, healthy and pain free. After all, that’s how humans are supposed to live.
Before we get to today’s workout, I must say that last night’s radio show with Bruce Fife was an INSTANT CLASSIC.
I was amazed by how much we covered in a little over an hour. We chatted about:
* Why coconut oil has been stigmatized and synonymous with heart disease
* The soybean industry’s influence in creating the coconut oil fear
* How coconut oil may reverse Alzheimer’s
* Why cooking with “heart healthy” vegetable oils is NOT a good idea
* How vegetable oils can slow down your thyroid
* The connection between low-grade infections and heart disease
* How much coconut oil YOU should use every day
* And a whole bunch of other good stuff!
Thanks for all of your submitted questions and call-ins. Makes my job nice and easy!
TODAY, Josh Trent of Wellness Force made a return to Underground Wellness along with our new friend-in-fitness John Parker of FitLife TV.
The workout was BRUTAL! Almost tossed my cookies!
Here’s what we did.
* Skiers – 30 seconds
* JUMPing Jacks with The Band – 30 seconds
* Indo Board Push Ups – 30 seconds (Buy YOUR Indo Board HERE!)
* Split Squat Plyos with a Twist – 30 seconds
Check out Josh’s advice on how to modify the workout and rest intervals to suit your own fitness level. It’s in the middle of the video.
I had to go back through the footage to remember what we did. It was so traumatizing that my brain repressed the memory.
* Split Squat Jumps (again!) – 30 seconds (Get as HIGH as You Can!)
* Reverse Lunge with Knee Drive – 15 seconds on each side (Totally Suck)
* Rocker Push-Ups with a Plyo Push Up Finish – 20 seconds then bang out as may clappers as you can
You can do any of these movements at home or in your backyard. No gym needed! No excuses!
