Lies you were Fed – R Factor for Golf II

Category : Uncategorized

All the ‘promises of tomorrow’ amount to very little if action today does not establish the framework for the future. Simply, tomorrow starts today.

Procrastination is the virus of the weak and our modern world is rife with ‘promises of tomorrow’.

However this runs counter the modern world with conveniences for this and that and rather proactive leaders must accept that the greatest lie served has been the suggestion that ‘this is easy’.

Success is a twisting, uphill cobblestone lane, slippery and undulating and always a challenge to navigate. It requires patience, willingness to ‘go the extra mile’ and acceptance that each ‘stone’ is slightly different.

Chaos is your home – Renegade X

Category : Uncategorized

Chaos is your home

When I introduced chaos and imperfection training to the sport training field it was, shall we say, not received well. For the most part I believe it was considered absolute nonsense in a field that was spraying weight machines with silicone so they could lift a greater amount of weight but as time prevailed and the hardware filled my trophy case those ‘in the know’ provided me the reigns to lead athletes to championship which of-course utilised chaos training.

Unfortunately, as I would learn with time, as you spoke of such to the sport and exercise sector many would see it as an opportunity to ‘sell’ products and services. This has completely distorted its true benefit and though many an expensive training tool as been sold, athletes have very rarely enjoyed its full benefits.

Chaos training and imperfection training need not be grandiose approaches but is instead a direct relationship to athletic needs in sporting competition. Whether you are carrying logs, hoisted on your shoulders, over undulating terrain or have your arms full with groceries, it is remarkably similar, with the only difference being the level of ability.

Imperfection training, which includes non-conforming objects, has naturally has been around since the dawn of exercise and rooted in manual labour, but long since pushed aside with the mass production of weights and other mediums. This is only naturally but it forever lost the ‘real-world’ or ‘sport’ carryover as a perfect training condition merely prepares an individual for the sterile walls of a gymnasium. The carryover from gym floor to sporting arena will vary considerably but ultimately, as many studies have proven of who wins ‘testing day’ awards, is extremely low.

Simply and to the point, all active Renegade X sessions are designed with elements of chaos and imperfection work. This will vary from modest amounts at the beginning to highly volatile ‘storms’ in advanced stages but ultimately ‘chaos is our home’.

The Goals of Exercise – Renegade X

Category : Uncategorized

The Goals of Exercise

T

he responsibility of each generation should include mentoring the youth and if not summarised remarkably simply, improving our world during your lifetime. That general approach has typically been followed throughout history and though their have been a stumbling blocks, many corners of society have generally maintained a positive course of direction.

In this year of 2013, of infinite possibilities and a world remarkably connected, we as a society are far apart, self absorbed with our concerns and all too often fail to realise what is most important.

Over ten years ago I wrote ‘the one thing is the whole thing’ and as much I would see nodding heads in speaking engagements, I still don’t think the public understands that  exercise was meant to improve the quality of life and not, as the industry does so very well, assist with creating an obsessive lifestyle. The marriage to the gymnasium, including the endless fitness classes and ‘must have’ specialised equipment, only serves to derail efforts for true long-term health and purely serves to fill the coffers of the industry.

This is what ‘we’, my generation, were supposed to promote, whether it was through sporting adventures or promoting exercise at the local community centre but all of ‘this’ was to lead to a better quality of life.

It should have never lead to expensive fitness classes, costly specialised equipment or promoting complicated dietary practices that promotes obsessive compulsive disorder but it did and fault lay firmly on my generation.

We inherited a completely different world but were derelict of our duties and led a generation astray and well off the path.

It is time now to reset the course, turn back and return to the former course which is ultimately why I am releasing Renegade X

I do this for you.

The Dance

The Dance

Charitable advice can often be the most barbarous whilst the sternest the kindest.

To suggest performance, required work effort or the like other than factual lends only to failure and hence the unkindest cut of all. Overly charitable advice must be culled and in its place a roll-up-your sleeve, coffee is meant to be black attitude. On the contrary, stern, factual commentary sets the table for success as it shows the true path to goal realisation, the needed steps and thus the kindest.

When you look into the eyes of the beast and see its deception it is no longer a beast.

Fear is a deadly foe and often our greatest obstacle is conceived within. See through this beast, understand fear is what you, your ego, allow and hence your enemy is self propagating. This ‘beast’ is your ego cloaking reality and fraudulently allows itself to control you from within. Fear spreads through your body like the deadliest of viruses, it makes you stammer when speaking to potential clients and it places a ceiling upon your dreams, gradually suffocating. Fear wins when you allow it to win. See through fear and fear evaporates.

Proper preparation is the motorway to success

Category : Uncategorized

Proper preparation is the motorway to success and victory never comes by chance.

Many an athlete has seen their career falter due to a poor diet or failing to which failing to possess a disciplined lifestyle lay at the root of problem. This extends to simple positive habits of behaviour including the following approach to start your day.

• Upon rising (0500) perform fifty push-ups and sit-ups.
• Drink ½ glass of water with ¼ teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate.
• On an empty stomach, perform moderate exercise that includes mobility work RED2 GPP, the introductory movements of DMC™ and static range of motion. This type of plan is suited towards early morning exercise prior to breakfast and facilitates improved range of motion as well as assisting weight loss plans.
• Once you have completed your exercise plan have a bracing contrast shower and make yourself suitable for the day ahead.
• Consume a morning tonic of warm water, non-pasteurised honey (local sources) and a ¼ slice of lemon.
• After completing your morning exercise routine enjoy a balanced breakfast that starts with porridge, a dollop of ‘natural’ almond or peanut butter, farm fresh eggs, fruit (i.e. berries), nuts, green tea and black coffee.
