I wanted to make some commentary about this picture:
Does the Indian dancer look more vital than the old cowboy guy? We cannot forever be the old rickety guy (nothing against him, he’s doing the Lord’s work, so to speak) protesting the vital, half naked young buck who looks like he is having a good time drumming.
Edit — as one of the commenters pointed out, the cowboy does have very beefy forearms, and he’d probably kick the Aztec’s butt in a fight. But my overall point stands.
I have an exercise system where I put these things around a lollycolumn in my basement, securing one resistance tube by tying another around it and securing it, and then I hold the handles of the resistance tubes and let myself fall backward and catch myself with my arms out to my sides, and do the same thing on the front and the sides.
It’s very good for the joints. Unlike weight lifting, it actually feels good. I feel lighter, and more flexible. It’s the kind of strength and body of a gymnast rather than a weight lifter. Like this:
I made a video of myself doing these, but thought the better of putting it up. Too bad, but I will teach people my resistance band system one on one.
The big point I made in my video is that you want to do an exercise system that feels good, doesn’t make you sore after, and promotes more fluid mobility and overall body flexibility and strength. For example, you should work towards being able to do the limbo — some Hipsters appropriating Afro-Caribbean culture, LOL;
It’s better to be able to limbo low under a stick, than have big biceps. It’s better to be cheerful and half naked and half savage, than to be stiff and uptight and angry.
It’s about manifesting vitality and exuding confidence. The Aztec comes off as more vital than the cowboy in the picture above, even though in history we know the cowboys beat the Indians.
We start by not being People of Walmart — if you aren’t obese, you’re already ahead of the game. The next step is to manifest vitality, to exercise with the goal of being more like a caveman and/or a gymnast. Esther Gokhale is your best place to start — she even calls it primal posture.
here’s one of my old favorites for vitality. I have linked it here before.
