I’ll check it out, thanks! Right now, between my bedroom and my office I will find a kettlebell, a pullup bar and a water dispenser. I admit I still don’t quite have the habits down since my 2019 has been quite irregular as far as scheduling goes, but it’s helping.
One day I hope to get into the habit of getting up really early to get things done. But my chronotype and habit of actually enjoying my evening tend to interfere with that.
My compliments on the visualization, something I strongly recommend everybody to do in the morning. Pick one of your goals and visualize it for 5 minutes or so. Like SubClub’s superchargers, it helps you to align with what you want in life.
I remember talking to a Russian woman during a wedding a while back and the topic of exercise came up. So I told her I trained with kettlebells and she looked at me and asked me what those were. So I told her “girya” and she got that look of understanding and complemented me. I loved that.
I agree kettlebells are pretty much up there. My watch disagrees of course, especially during the snatches. I think sandbags are also pretty good for some things, since the weight is unevenly distributed.
It’s too bad that as simple as most kettlebell exercise may be, the time it takes for it to become fun to do is quite long, so most people quit. I usually start them out with swings only, combined with compound bodyweight exercises (Convict Conditioning, anyone?). I’ll save the presses and the ever-awesome Get Ups for later.
Well, they do have Body Beast.
The P90 family remains awesome, even though there are probably better programs by now. Insanity is exactly that, P25 is probably better. I would love to get into Cize, but although my rhythm is excellent, I just can’t seem to get it. TurboFire is nice too.
Many of the BB programs are quite good. It’s just too bad BB is funded by Multi-Level Marketing, which is a very nice way of saying Pyramid Scheme. They try to sell you their stuff at every opportunity.
Usually I try and figure out what people are most into doing and end up getting them hooked on an appropriate YouTube channel with enough variety to keep 'm interested. For those that need social accountability I recommend a site that offers an online community and gamification with a one-time lifetime membership payment. Still better than subscriptions.
Agreed, I wonder what the world would look like if everybody was constantly taking action in their lives. Sure would be very different than it is now. May not be all good.
At least we could finally get rid of the disease that is reality TV.
Creating a module that pushes the listener is a difficult thing. If the module pushes just a little too hard, the subconscious stops paying attention. If it does it a little bit wrong, it leads to massive reconciliation. But I have no doubt Fire is constantly theorizing on how to actually create a script that can physically move people into action. It would be the holy grail of subliminal technologies.
