Everyone wants to look and feel like a warrior. The biggest problem is that the transformation to a warriors body seems like a lot of work. What most people don’t realize is that making small adjustments to how they get around or just making a game out your daily routine can be the first step in your transformation. The best part is that it can be a lot of fun too. The key is to not be shy. If you getting healthier and happier then cares what other people think.
Lets start with a lunge walk. It is really easy, can be done anywhere.
Quadrupedal Movement or QM for short
Ever get down on all fours and play like your an animal when you were a kid. Very similar but easier on the knees and a great workout.
Broad jumping is a great exercise, can be done anywhere and in general is a lot of fun. Make it fun (I bet I can just from this parking line to that one. Then a little farther. Maybe from the sidewalk to that rock or anything to challenge yourself.) After a while everywhere you go you will see a new challenge and will find yourself doing it.
Remember when you where a kid and you would tell a friend, bet you can’t do this and then they would do it. The next step was always “Bet you can’t do it backwards”. You always have to try it cause everything is more fun backwards. May not be able to do this one anywhere but just about.
The Final Stretch
Always finish up with a good stretch. See Even Warriors Stretch it Out for more info on stretching.
The Finish Line
Of course this is work and not always easy but remember that it can be a heck of a lot of fun, especially if you do it will friends or family. And its a sure bet that as long as you keep a good attitude, your friends or family are going to join in and its a great way to start Moving Like a Warrior.
