Positive Focus

Having a positive focus is essential in training. Firstly in getting started and aiming towards your targets and then to keep going. To help you stay positive on your journey, here are my top 3 tips;

1. Focus on what you can do and build upon it; doing this will give you confidence and allow for building up more on this positivity.

2. Recognise your personal milestones and then set new ones at a pace that works and feels right for you.

3. Keep it fun yet challenging, the right balance will ensure you maintain your joy and motivation.

Most of all stay positive and enjoy the journey.

Happy Training 🙏🙂💫

Technique or Spirituality..?

“Jeet kune do ultimately is not a matter of petty technique but of highly developed personal spirituality and physique.”

~ Bruce Lee

Jeet kune do developed by Bruce Lee takes us on a journey, Bruce Lee also stated that Jeet Kune Do (JKD) is a process not a product, one that for many becomes a personal journey of discovery.

What he meant by the quote in the picture is open to interpretation as many things, personally I have seen it as one of opening to all possibilities where we then realise how different each moment is and the beauty and bliss that it brings.

The opportunity to develop in mind and body and find all the ways that suit us personally, discovering what works and what doesn’t and finding our way within it.

For JKD to be only about technique or to be a product would have made it confining which was not his purpose at all. Personal liberation being one of his main goals, Bruce Lee’s own journey took this path of continual discovery and refinement.

This way of being then becomes a part of all aspects of life allowing one to develop deeply within their own self in mind, body and spirituality.

Realising that all exists in this present moment of beauty and bliss takes one beyond technique being in all that is. 🙏💛

Building Up

Building up in our training is very much an individual thing, however there are a few helpful rules you can apply to assist the process.

  1. Gradual progression; take your training step by step and listen to your body, as you gradually add more weight and variation to your exercises.
  2. Pace your training; remember to get adequate rest days, at least 1 per week for recovery and to alternate your training so you’re not overtraining the same muscle groups. Recovery is as important as the work itself.
  3. Stay focused; staying focused on your path of progression is important and to do this you have to keep it interesting. Vary your workouts, keep your favourite music on and keep track of your progress.

Stay focused , stay motivated, build up step by step 💪💫

Honour your progress

It’s important always to honour your progress and all you’ve put it in to your training.

There are several ways you can do this;

  1. Keep a record of your progressions.
  2. Reward yourself when you achieve milestones.
  3. Adapt as progress, enjoying the process.

The journey is where the joy is as well as keeping track of your milestones along the way, this is important, so you can really see how far you’ve come.

3 Ways to Overcome Plateaus

Hitting plateaus in training is inevitable and a regular occurrence when training consistently and regularly. Even where we are gradually progressing with techniques and rep range these can still occur. However there is always a way to overcome.

Here are 3 steps to help you overcome them.

  1. The first thing is to recognise them and address them as quickly as possible, before becoming stagnant or bored. Then believe in your mind you can and will overcome this plateau, not allowing it to defeat you.
  2. Then break the mould of your training and diversify a little, this is as important for your mind as well as your body as its important to feel free and joyful in your training.
  3. Then listen to your body, feel what’s working and what isn’t and add or takeaway what you need. This also will apply to your diet as that can contribute significantly.

I hope you find these tips helpful and are able to apply where you need. Remember there is always a way. 💫

Most of all enjoy your training, stay happy and free 🙏🙂

There are no limits only plateaus and you must not stay there you must go beyond them

~ Bruce Lee

Discovery

Each new day provides new beauty and insight,

As soon as we open our eyes, when we set our mind to see all the new and beautiful things,

Then each day can be filled with discovery and be a beautiful way of living,

A way filled with openness where every moment you will feel the newness,

Life is always changing

Nothing stays the same

In this is great beauty;

Let your every day be one of discovery 🙏💗

Staying Inspired

We can all hit low points in training and in life, so it’s important that we stay inspired and have things that can help re-inspire us when in need.

There are several key things that can help;

  1. Having a positive peer group, surrounding yourself with positive people who lift you up and encourage you when in need is essential when needing that necessary inspiration. Even if that means joining classes or groups, find a way to meet like minded people.
  2. Setting goals, small ones are as important, as well as larger ones. The bigger goals give us something to aim for, whilst the smaller ones allow us to see our progress along the way.
  3. Change with change, when things become stagnant and uninspiring it can be time to create a change or find a new way. There are many opportunities in life, we just have to step out to find them. If we stay in same lane too long, we may just miss them. Don’t be afraid to diversify, you never know if something new will work for you unless you try.

I hope you find these few tips helpful if you have been struggling with staying inspired in your training or with life in general.

Remember there is always a way, look for it and you will find it. 🙏💛

Moment by Moment

Taking each day moment by moment not only helps you to be more present, it also helps you achieve your goals.

Every thing we achieve is done step by step.

Whether it be weight loss, body building or any other goal, and most of all the journey is where the joy is.

Going moment by moment, we also see many opportunies and find ways we may not otherwise see, by going with what is.

Moment by moment,

Enjoying life as it is

Embrace opportunities 💕
