Man has been walking since thousand’s of years, but only in the last 100 years or so man has started walking on flat roads. The primitive man walked a lot, but he walked mountains, deserts and valleys.
Today I got sick of walking on a flat surface, so I jumped walls, walked over tree embankments. It felt like I was doing much milder version of Parkour. I immediately built up some sweat, which impossible just walking in this december evening weather.
Do try not to walk on straight roads, find a road which is steep. Try to find something you can climb or jump on during your walk. It is way too fun.
I have decided against joining any kind of Gym or Fitness classes. The things I want to do for fitness is not offered by anybody in Bandra.
I love long baording, it is one of the best fitness exercise for balance and core strength. I also bought a balance board where I can practise at home.
I am big fan of Ido Portal and his ideas. I love to crawl and don’t miss a chance to crawl in any park.He says if you crawl like a ape you will become very strong. Also he suggest that we hang with our hands. Our shoulders don’t get this exercise. So I try to hang, whenever I am in a park.
If I am not able to manage anything. I at least try to do some brisk walking for 15 mins. I also manage a few yoga sessions a week at home. I have a skipping rope, but I haven’t used it much.
I am very unfit, I have no marathon to run. So this is what my time allows for now.
