Mindful Exercise

As a martial artist I learned to pay attention to small details in my body. Mindful exercise is the art of noticing. As you lift the weights in slow motion, notice sensations in your body – tension, pain, shaking, vibration, relaxation, pleasure, your body alignment. The next step is discerning which sensations require action and which can simply be observed. This is the beginning of creating a powerful positive relationship with your body.

The tip this week for your workout is:

Make your start as slow as possible. This “orderly recruitment” of the slow, medium and fast twitch muscles will ultimately affect the quality of your muscular fatigue and failure. The slower the start, the higher the quality muscular stimulation and exhaustion. Also, it is safer to begin very slowly. The first rep is your warm up.
