Some ways in which working out at the park is actually better and superior to working out at the gym:

1. More naturalistic.

To be outdoors in open spaces; far more natural than being stuck indoors. More similar to the ancient gymnasiums (open air spaces) of Ancient Greece. Gymnasium actually refers to ‘gumnos‘ (Ancient Greek for “naked”) because the Ancient Greek athletes actually worked out and competed naked. ‘Gumnasion‘ in Ancient Greek means bodily exercise.

I know for myself, I enjoy working out with other guys in the outdoors, shirt off, and being able to both chat, socialize and workout.

2. Open air spaces and the fresh air is better for hygiene and health?

The philosophy of fresh air, and open air places.

3. More fun and challenging?

To me, working out at the park is like a cool breakdancing move. You wanna do feats of strength like a muscle up, then muscle up on rings, etc.

I find it challenging and insanely fun!

4. Sharing tips, and learning new tips from others

I like the park is like a community. We all learn from one another, and workout together.


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!
