As my go forward with my journey, this particular quote from Bruce Lee came to mind:
"Before I learned the art, a punch was just a punch, and a kick, just a kick.
After I learned the art, a punch was no longer a punch, a kick, no longer a kick.
Now that I understand the art, a punch is just a punch and a kick is just a kick."
Not to say that I have learnt everything that needs to be learnt. Far from it. But I have come to realize that we often tend to overcomplicate things. Life should be so much simpler. If I were to summarize what matters to me (fitness-wise) in a nutshell, they are:
- Incorporate some kind of squat, deadlift, pressing and mobility work in your programme and you're golden
- Eat (or drink) your greens. Raw is better.
- Cook your own meals.
- Spend less on unnecessary materialistic stuff and spend more on good quality food
- Read a lot
- Try not to take any sort of modern medicine. Natural is best. Refer to #2
