Sunshine and Wildness

League of Wildness,

It's good to get back on the mic. We just wrapped up the Wild Day Challenge - a 21 day challenge where we committed to working out OUTSIDE. The energy and enthusiasm was epic and we're psyched to do more. Even if you were not able to participate in the challenge, I'd still encourage you to join the group.

League of Wildness,

I recorded this episode immediately after an awesome workout I did out here in the wild that I wanted to share with you all. The idea was to accumulate 75 Pullups while hiking about 4.5 miles up a mountain. I did this by stopping at different trees along the way and busting out Pullups off of a branch. Afterward, I did an arm finisher where I did 3 sets of 8 Curls with a rock (tempo 31x1) immediately followed by 5 heavy single-arm curls (each arm) with my backpack. It was legit!

As mentioned in the episode, you don't need to hike up a mountain to do this workout. Load up a backpack and head out into your neighborhood or local park with pocket monkii, MB2, OG monkii bars, or whatever else you have. It's easy to quickly set up, bust out a set of Rows and Curls, then continue on your way. You'd be amazed at how much volume you can do without breaking yourself down following this Microworkout protocol. 

Try it out and let me know how it goes!

It does not have to be complicated to WORK. I do this type of workout ALL the time as a way to build a foundation of fitness. It doesn't break you down and leaves you feeling energized.

1. Walk/hike 1-4 miles.

2. 2-4 sets of 8-15 reps: Rows, Pushups, Tucks, Curls (can be a bonus)

Try it out and let us know what you think!

There was some recent chatter on the monkii wild Facebook group in regards to cold showers. Chris asked the group how he can basically harden the f$%# up and start getting into the cold shower program. We heard from the arctic, the north, and the south - all wild places with different perspectives on how to approach environmental conditioning through the medium of cold showers. Let's keep the conversation going.

Thanks for listening!

I was out running hill sprints and started thinking about how I structure my training in regards to the frequency of these 6 key pillars:

  1. Nutrition
  2. Movement
  3. Range of Motion
  4. Strength
  5. Power
  6. Intensity

Basically, I was deconstructing the frequency I "train" each pillar or how often it is incorporated into my life. This isn't necessarily a pyramid where the lower layer must be complete before adding the next, but it certainly would not be a bad goal to aim for. You can use this template to think about where you could improve in your own practice - I hope it's useful.

How does what you're doing mesh with the pyramid? Let me know!

Thanks for listening!

First-Thing Mindset

League of Wildness,

I was dragging ass around the house after a poor night of sleep and had this epiphany I wanted to share. As soon as I did the 'first thing' - which in this case was getting dressed to go for a run - my mindset completely changed. I've heard this concept discussed before, but what has not been fully appreciated is how much your mindset changes as soon as you start to take action. It's a binary. A 0 to 1 phenomenon. 

I went about the rest of my day thinking of all the other 'first things' I could do.

What are your thoughts? What are the 'first things' you can do?

Thanks for listening!

League of Wildness,

I just finished listening to Nims Purja on Joe Rogan. Nims' film "14 Peaks" is a must-watch for any dedicated LoW member and I'd highly recommend the Rogan podcast as well. Nims completed what everyone else thought was absolutely impossible - climbing the 14 highest peaks in the world in a span of six months. He beat the previous record by several years. He's a wildman.

Listening to Nims share his journey made me reflect. Yes - he did something incredible that was thought to be impossible. But haven't we all done things we thought were impossible? To me - the difference is in the magnitude versus the absolute difficulty. If we took the time to really think about times we had to push beyond what we thought was possible, no matter how small or trivial it might seem, we are capable of much much more.

It's more about how hard something was for you as the individual instead of trying to quantify difficulty on an absolute level.

Thanks for listening!

League of WIldness,

This is an experimental episode recorded on the trail and in the wild. I keep hearing different authorities preach about the importance of getting outside. This is fantastic, however, I find that without any specific directive - the idea stays an idea and fails to become manifested through action. So, I created my own. See below:

  • Get outside every single day for 10 minutes at the absolute minimum.
  • 30 minutes is ideal.
  • More outside time is always better.

How did you like the All-Wild episode concept?

The sound can definitely be improved and if anyone has a headset microphone they recommend please let me know.

Thanks for listening!
