Sitting, the Death of The Alpha Male.
We sit all day. GET UP! It’s Killing You.
As you can see in the video, The body needs to work hard to stabilise the keg. I detest machines and exercises that have you sitting. We sit all fucking day! It’s time to stand on our own 2 feet!
SITTING IS THE NEW SMOKING
Dr Kelly Starrett
Why We Train On Our Feet.
Sometimes we lie on the bench, sometimes we roll on the ground…..but you will NEVER see Alpha Male Project sitting doing an exercise….EVER! We train on our feet
I even yell at the boys if I see them sit during a rest break.
“But I don’t sit all day” Bullshit!
- At breakfast
- In the car/bus/train
- At work
- At Lunch
- At work again
- On the way home
- At the Gym on machines AAaaaaaarrrrrrrgggghhhhhhh!!!!!!
- At Dinner
- Watching TV
- On the Computer/Xbox/Playstation
Shall I continue. Our training needs to be built in a way that promotes opening up our bodies instead of closing them.
A great example would be the kettlebell swing. At the top, the hips are extended. The legs are
locked. Our glutes are switched on, the abs are on the lats are on. We are fully extended.
Change the Way You Do It.
If you are currently sitting doing all your training, consider doing the opposite and train on your feet. See how much you improve. See how much better you move.
- Ground based stuff like bear Crawls and Gorillas.
- Roll lots on the ground.
- Become a child again.
- If you can throw in some jumps and throws.
- Kettlebells are an amazing tool to keep you young.
Whatever you do, just do not sit anymore.
It’s for guys aged 30-65. We get you Strong Fit & Powerful. No fluff no bullshit.
