Human Movement

Act on the following (don’t just read it, implement it NOW): 

Exercise i believe means something like increasing the amount of stress, weight, responsibility, information, you can HANDLE. Exercise is typically referred to through literal weight, like 2 kilograms, 5 kilograms, 10 kilograms, 100 kilograms (just physical forms of resistance), and so fourth. But when playing games, like Dota 2, which has an element team playing (with 4 other players), if these players aren’t good at the game, you will realise that you have to carry their weight. So exercise does not have to mean literal weight, like only weight. But exercise should consist of weight, and movement of the body at a more global, systemic level rather than if you were playing a game of dota where the movement is coming from a very limited – sitting down, looking only at a very limited field of view, and communicating with this limited view (screen) with the use of a mouse situated at one hand and a keyboard at other (virtual reality?). Your ability to exercise is dependent on the tools you have. 

As you increase the amount of stress, weight, responsbility, repetition, sets, making habits out of it, you become better, and that stress, weight, responsibility becomes less of a stress, weight, responsibility… what was hard becomes easier/easy… you become strong… you can lift heavier weights…. lets say dumbbell pressing, throw balls, throw axes, handle more stress… you become fit… you improve your endurance… you improve you health… become more agile… mroe fit… be able to handle all sorts of combat… posturally fit… rehabilitation… size (hypertrophy, bodbuilding), your ability to handle all sorts of different stress… you get a better looking body… more aesthetic… can do some movements which are normally hard…  become better at your sports, become a superhero (at least look like a super hero? and fight the evil villan which you could encounter at any moment! Win more often at life! and so you increase it further…. carryover to other tasks is highly dependent on that which you train… 

Through this increase, things can be obtained like the following:

Right vs wrong.

Right over wrong x ?… You might start with easy mode, something which is easy…. and then you might increase to medium, and you do that enough that medium becomes easy (e.g. heavy becomes light… like carrying an external weight… or even your own body weight…, a general stress becomes less stressful), and then you increase the difficulty, the weight, the stess further, and then that becomes easy… and then at some point you are so far beyond the beginner that the person cannot in 1 day become like the expert…. The difficulty can be increased through so many different ways… endless… exercise is often associated with physical forms of resistances… like resistance coming through various and often increasing weights too overcome… applying those weights with different body postures… of different body weights, different vests, of different winds…. like cones, hurdles, rocks, grass, exposure to light, darkness, wind, water, time to complete a movement, exercise, movement pattern, repetitions of that movement pattern… people, types of people… punching, kicking, and so fourth… being in a fasted state… eating horrible food… the list is endless… playing an instrument…. How many goals do you have? Do you want to be best violin player… the best olympic weight lifter?… the at doing muscle ups, learn to throw an axe the best… the best archer… the best sniper… the best writer… the best animator… the best at doing pull-ups, muscle ups… the best martial artist…. the best at ji-jitsu… have the best body… lean.. strong.. fit… healthy… attractive.. intelligent… sucessful… confidence…, and win at everything? so your goal to be the best at your sports… ranging to preparing for the most evil villian which you could encounter at any moment!   Where do you draw the limit? to winning? (lose),

The “?” increase can only be 1% per day for example, but over a year that 1% increase could be an increase of 350%!… and it doesnt have to be 1% it can be anything! Do you dare to choose 100% increase over a day? What is the limit? How do we change this limit? (Enhancing the yin, recovery energy… high quality air… high quality food… coldness?… etc…. 

The more yang, the more you want to achieve, perhaps the more you need the yin, the recovery, the stillness, the optimal nutrition, the optimal air to breathe… the optimal rest, sleep… the more you need exposure to cold… the more help you need…. but also perhaps at the same time not be tied by that dogma….

Other random reasons as to why you should exercise, and exercise optimally:

– being prepared for the zombie apocalypse, etc.  Menno Henselman (I think that’s how you spell his name)

– This new meta-analysis concludes strength training is an effective anti-depressant, even if you’re not actually gaining strength” Menno Henselman (I think that’s how you spell his name)

Homeostasis, balance, equilibrium is the goal. If you are too still, then movement becomes more important to reduce stagnation  and allow for a pumping effect, improve circulation of the fluids like the blood and lymph to support our bodies detoxification pathways. If you move too much, it might be important to be still. 

 

Biblical perspective on exercise: “Exercise is important, but spiritual exercise is more important than physical exercise because spiritual exercise is eternal why the body is temporary, but the body also houses the spirit so it is still important, just less important the spirit, the soul” – George Filippopoulos

Timothy 4:8 “Physical exercise has some value, but spiritual exercise is valuable in every way, because it promises life both for the present and for the future.”

For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.” 1 Timothy 4:8

1 Corinthians 9:24-27 “Surely you know that many runners take part in a race, but only one of them wins the prize. Run, then, in such a way as to win the prize. Every athlete in training submits to strict discipline, in order to be crowned with a wreath that will not last; but we do it for one that will last forever. That is why I run straight for the finish line; that is why I am like a boxer who does not waste his punches. I harden my body with blows and bring it under complete control, to keep myself from being disqualified after having called others to the contest.”

“Don’t you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and who was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourselves but to God” 1 Corinthians 6:19

Why you should move more and sit less:

Harvard Heart
Letter

Why you should move — even just a
little — throughout the day

Sitting for
long, uninterrupted periods of time may leave you more prone to cardiovascular
problems.

Published:
November, 2020

How much time do you spend sitting each day? If you’re like most
people, more than half of your waking hours are spent parked on a chair or
sofa. Even if you dedicate at least 30 minutes a day to structured exercise
(such as brisk walking, cycling, or swimming), it’s still important to get up
and move for at least a few minutes, many times throughout the day.

“The more you sit, the more your large muscles are not
using glucose, the body’s main energy source. Uninterrupted sitting can cause
blood sugar levels to rise, triggering the release of insulin, the hormone that
regulates blood sugar,” says Dr. Hicham Skali, a cardiologist with
Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Over time, sedentary habits
cause the body to become less sensitive to insulin. The resulting insulin
resistance promotes inflammation, a key player in the buildup of fatty plaque
inside arteries, he explains.

Preliminary evidence from studies in rats suggests that
sedentary behavior may change the activity of dozens of genes, including the
gene responsible for making lipoprotein lipase (LPL). This enzyme helps break
down fat so it can be used for energy or stored in the body. When rats were
prevented from moving, LPL levels decreased, a change that may also contribute
to raising heart disease risk, Dr. Skali explains.

Don’t just sit there

The evidence about the harms of uninterrupted sitting (and the
benefits of breaking it up) has been piling up for years, aided by tools such
as fitness trackers that reveal people’s typical activity patterns. Findings
from recent studies include the following:

  • More than 2,600 people
    ages 60 and older reported their typical sitting habits (including a
    weekday and weekend) and were followed for nine years. Those who sat for
    an average of about three hours a day were 33% less likely to die of
    cardiovascular disease during the follow-up period than people who sat for
    an average of about seven hours a day.
  • Among 8,000 people
    followed for 10 years, those who did light activity instead of sitting for
    30 minutes each day had a 17% lower risk of dying in that period, even if
    they split up that half-hour of activity into periods as brief as a minute
    each.
  • In more than 5,600 women
    followed for five years, reducing sedentary time by one hour per day was
    linked to a 26% lower risk of heart disease. Again, the hour of
    non-sedentary time didn’t have to occur all at once. Short,
    light-intensity interruptions to sitting were just as effective.

Making the moves

There are many ways you can add short bursts of movement to your
daily routine. Whenever you notice you’ve been sitting for a while, do a short
set of exercises — say five to 10 squats or leg lifts, Dr. Skali suggests. You
can also keep a stretchy exercise band near your favorite chair to get some arm
exercises in as well. Here are some other ideas:

Set a reminder. Many fitness trackers feature alerts that remind
you to get up at least once an hour. But you can also use a smartphone or a
regular kitchen timer; use it during periods when you tend to sit for long
stretches.

Take care of your chores less
efficiently.
 Put your groceries or
other purchases in small bags and make multiple trips from your car to your
home. Stand up while folding laundry, and put just a few items of clothing away
at a time to get more steps in.

Pace or tidy up during phone calls. Whenever you’re on the phone, stand up. Try to walk
back and forth or in circles while you talk. Or use a hands-free headset and do
some light housework while you chat.

Move a little while you watch TV. The average American watches close to five hours of
television a day, and that amount increases as people age. At least once an
hour, stand up and march in place, swing your arms, or do some easy stretches.

Take the long way. Whenever you drive somewhere, park in a spot
farther from the door to get in some extra steps. Take the stairs instead of
the escalator or elevator, even if you climb only one or two of the total
flights.
