So, throughout your training, how often did you train & what did your diet consist of that contributed to gaining the 20lbs in muscle, if I may ask? To be honest w/ you, if I wanted to be serious about returning to martial arts training as you suggested, I would need to build up my core strength @ the bare minimum as well as endurance/stamina, probably through cardio. I'm currently 6'2", 200lbs. The reason I wish to pursue this again is for overall well-being, confidence, self-esteem, etc...
To tell you the truth, it all varies from person to person. One thing I suggest to anyone who wants to feel better physically and mentally is to eliminate most if not all processed foods and anything containing corn syrup. After a while, those things will make you feel nauseous or upset your stomach and you probably won’t want to eat them. Also avoid microwaving things. If you don’t have the budget for that though, don’t worry about any of that too much. But definitely eat fruits and vegetables.
Hello. Thanks for following. Northern Shaolin practitioner: How is that style/practice?
No problem! ;D Your blog seems pretty awesome and I noticed your blog name multiple times. Finally checked it out and all your posts seem relevant to my interests ‘3’
I know this isn’t art related but this is my Sigung and he’s so cool.
This is why I always suggest meditation and kung fu to people who are having health issues. This stuff really does work.
I have a heart disorder and asthma as well as anxiety issues and I know it’s helped me :)
