dips

In praise of working out in public and at the park and beyond:

Why?

The biggest reason:

As we are talking … gyms aren’t even open.

Thus the thought:

Perhaps we should think of the streets, park, public places like our ultimate gym … playground, jungle urban gym!

Be creative, be ghetto, and have audacity

The biggest thing:

Have the chutzpah to workout in public.

MCGYVER it.

You just gotta find bars, poles … whatever you can do chinups, pull-ups, dips, etc on.

Also, realize you can do a LOT with bodyweight exercises. For example, certain feats of strength which are fun to work towards:

  1. Muscle up
  2. Planche
  3. 1 handed pushup and 1 handed dive bomber
  4. Elevated 1 handed pushup and 1 handed dive bomber
  5. Dips off the ground, with elevated feet while keeping your palms on the floor
  6. Wall pushups
  7. Ring chinups, ring muscle up [I am working toward this], ring dips
  8. One legged pistol squats.

My Muscle Philosophy:

Treat your body as sculpture.

This is not my body

The first thing:

I don’t see my body as belonging to me. I look at my body like it belongs to someone else.

When I look at the Lamborghini of someone else, I admire it. When I see the muscles and physiques of anyone else, I admire it. Then I had the epiphany:

Why not transform my own body into a Lambo, and admire my own body instead?

The logic

The great logic:

  1. It is far cheaper to get buff than to buy a Lambo.
  2. The human body is the apex beauty. This means your personal goal in life should be to beautify your own personal body to the maximum (without plastic surgery, steroids, etc).
  3. Ultimate democratic approach: Genetics doesn’t matter. Sex doesn’t matter. Racial ethnicity doesn’t matter. Anyone can both add muscle mass and subtract fat.
  4. It doesn’t cost much to get ripped. Just intermittent fast [no breakfast, no lunch], one big ass meal a day, and mostly a ‘ketogenic’ diet.
  5. Your body is always with you. Why not beautify your body to inspire yourself?

The joy of sculpting your own body

To sculpt your own body is insanely fun. Why? You can see the change over time!

Once again, the goal is simple:

Never stop adding muscle mass, and never stop reducing body fat, or keeping it low (around 10%).

Muscle and your body is highly practical.

The more muscle you have, the more energy you got. The more power you got to make art-work, and live with gratitude, joy, and hyper-vigor.

Strengthen on, and flex on!
