Impacts Circuit intro

An extract from some instructional material produced on learning how to deal with impacts. The instructional set is aimed at learning the basic coordination needed for the action of jumping and landing. The other elements are some classic problems almost ever-present in any outdoor environment.

A. Impacts without impacts instructional set:

A1. Jumping without jumping x 50 reps
A2. Landing without landing x 50 reps
A3. Double arms swing x 5-10 mins
A4. Collapse and stabilize x 25 reps

Horizontal surfaces dominant:

B1. Landing focusing on time to immobilisation: three positions. High – Medium – Low.
B2. Precision jumps: low to high - same level - high to low. Land accurately on the forefoot. No noise and again, focus on time to immobilisation.
B3. Plyo challenge: pick a jump you can’t perform standing, that is possible with a jump in between.

B1-B3. Qualitative training: spend 15-30 mins on each element, according to fatigue. Quit when quality is decreasing too much. However, don't make a bit of fatigue a reason to quit.

Vertical surfaces dominant:

C1. Vertical landing: Progress aiming to bring the body towards a horizontal position.
C2. Tic tac precision: tap the wall go over an obstacle to start with. Increase the height of the obstacle to clear and then the length of the movement.
C3. Tic tac toc:  Increase the distance between

C1-C3. Qualitative training: spend 15-30 mins on each element, according to fatigue. Quit when quality is decreasing too much. However, don't make a bit of fatigue a reason to quit.

D. Impacts without impacts instructional set x 1 set.

A note and a reminder: As the surrealist painter Magritte was saying: “Ceci n'est pas une pipe” - “this is not a pipe” on the description of the painting of a pipe. He was underlying the difference between a real object and its representation.
Similarly, when looking through space, the focus should be placed upon looking at shapes and forms rather than function and perception.

For more: Stay tuned, my new website is coming next week...

Until next time,

The one arm handstand Journey: A valuable tool or a worthless toy?

Anything that we do in our practices can have completely different meanings and impacts on our lives. We can choose to use different tools to produce countless outcomes.

For example, training a handstand can be oriented towards aesthetics, general body development or just because it’s cool.

I think this approach is limited because it doesn’t add up to create any bigger picture.

The reasons why I find a one arm handstand a valuable tool is that it’s hard to reach.

-       It develops a phenomenal work ethics
-       It makes the practitioner see a transformation in the body by sticking to a goal for YEARS.
-       It will give a meaning to the phrase: trusting a process.
-       It will allow to develop correct feedback loops to progress
-       It teaches to control frustration.
-       From a physical stand point it teaches you balance on your hands (non-transferrable to other activities) and works on your arms’ support capacity.

Those who are playing with it, here and there, will gain absolutely nothing from it, besides some enjoyable hours of life which could be better spent off walking on the mountains, swimming in the open sea, drinking a good tea while chatting with friends.

A project has a beginning but most importantly has AN END. Then, everything will start to make sense…

On a last note: Can I switch it for something else? Of COURSE, you can or rather, you should. Always move on, change it up, but don’t lose the core.

Until next time,
