Simple Workouts Are Often the Best

I wholeheartedly believe that weight bearing exercise is vitally important for everyone baring a real medical condition. I don’t know how it has come to it that many women feel that they shouldn’t pick up heavy (for them) objects. Weight bearing is probably the single best thing you can do for bone health. Why would your body keep dense strong bones around if you never ever send it environmental signals by bearing heavy (for you) weight that tells your body it needs to do so?

Why Do You Train?

I run trails because I want to, swim laps or catch waves because I enjoy it, spar and roll because it is pure competition, rock climb because it’s fun and challenging on many different levels, go out into the bush and cut down a tree and burn it all night to keep myself warm and the dingos away just because I’m alive and exist, do handstands, jump off stuff and do bear crawls, ape step and ground kong simply for the joy of moving.
