More single arm work with the 25lb.
*******
Upgraded to sets of 10. Still a little shaky at times, particularly on my left side. The degree of sensitivity required to read the timing, balance the motion, and negotiate power seems to increase exponentially with higher weight single arm movements.

My contract is up here at Theatre West Virginia today. It’s been an intense but rewarding few weeks here. I’m grateful for the experience I gained here, the performance opportunities, and above all I was very lucky to share a stage with some of the finest people out there. Not only because they were extremely professional, hard working, and talented, but top shelf folks that I got to share life with for a bit. *******
Thanks for everything. On, Zeb. On.

For anyone serious about learning more about Vyayam and wrestling conditioning, you need to head over to @janmarkusadams profile and follow him. He has an excellent website too. Google translate does a good job of translating his German blog posts into English - they are very well researched and written. I certainly hope to be able to make it over to Mainz one day to train with him. While I am there, I will also have to call in on my brother @wuan_malaka in Frankfurt.

Let heat permeate all work. Heat is the sign of sacrifice and of transformation. It is also the method. The byproduct of work is heat, infrared, full of information, meaning, the program.
Joining the horizontal and the vertical we have the Linga, the Upright.

First awkward swings of the sumtola. It is a big unwieldy lump - I love it already. I will dedicate the next few days to making my motion smoother and more natural.
Immortality awaits those who are willing to submit to the flames of transformation and fan the fire with the force of their will. Turning the light inward, our true self is revealed. Salute!

We went to the rodeo again last night, in Gordonsville, a rural Virginia Town. We watched brave men enact ancient rites  of facing powerful, awe inspiring, archetypal 2000 lb beasts that can pirouette 360° in the air in a second.

In the presence of a bull one immediately understands it's ancient association with the raw pulsing power of Life Force and of a certain aspect and component of masculinity.

Symbolism is not merely a vague psychological construct or reminder of some mundane aspect of reality. Our ancestors were not children, but men endowed with powers of observation and understanding that exceeds ours.

In a sacred universe created by and therefore imbued with Magical Force on every level, that which exists carries that Force.
Each thing or act depicts and contains frequencies or character of the modifications of that Force which created it and bears the signature in shape, color, texture etc. One may experience and cultivate that Force by proximity and ritual interaction.

It also describes lesser known levels of reality and its processes. For instance to wash before a ritual does not only have a psychological value of settling the mind because one Associates washing with cleanliness and renewal, but also water has particular effects on the shape and character of the field around one's body. An example that may broaden our view of symbolism is the fact that over a period of time the planet Venus draws a geometrical shape with its movement. Geometry then as symbolism again is not merely an abstract but exists. The last example which will bring us back to our subject is the Ankh. The ankh is said to symbolize eternal life. Its shape is derived from a part of the thoracic spine of the bull. In the ancient Egyptian language the word Ka means both bull and life force. This portion of the spine was considered a concentrated source of the marrow which was further refined by the bull into semen.  Zoroastrian literature is the compliment to the Vedic, and provides a key to the understanding of the Indo-European revelation, and thereby bull cultures in general and their psychosomatic technologies.  In this literature there is a myth about a bull who wa

One of the earliest pieces of coaching I got when I entered the exercise world was “never sacrifice form for weight or reps.” I still do my best to abide by that, for safety and for effectiveness of the work I’m putting in. Thanks, Coach Cisar*boom*click*

Evening swings - in the day, I prefer a shorter heavier gada, but long handled, lighter ones, like this 20lber, are perfect for opening up at the end of the day.

@kellsbells88 visited the Akhara today for some Vyayam, Zurkhaneh and plotting.
#vyayam #akhara #gada #garnal #mungli #sumtola #grappling #bulldogspirit #bullculture #knowbody #waryoga

First swings of 35lb Gada - swings with the mungli and some gar nal squats 60lb . After the week I’ve had, I needed a fun workout/geek out with my friend @tombillinge...That Gada is a BEAST 😲
#
Post workout out meeting as he’s assisting me with several projects including the @wolkowinski September workshop...AND a new special event project in works, slated for next Spring

Another awesome Camp is over. Again I had a blast and especially those amazing rolls that take me to the limit of my physical and technical abilities are well worth it. I had those with @ulbreezy and quite a few with that man in the picture.
Thomas isn't just a way too humble savage but in my opinion the best Nogi welterweight grappler in Germany - especially Sub-only. Also we are equally retarded🙅‍♂️ #bjjglotters #summercamp #summercampbelgium #jiujitsu #nogi #noginoproblem #weaponizedretards #waryoga #bothmorehandsomethanmehdi #combatclubcologne #matrixjiujitsu #teamchoco #womensbjj #girlsingis #enterthecistem #dicksoutsummertime #ablelism

Skeletal set up. Pairing of Lingam and yoni. Subject to first AgniHotra heat by celibate (for at least 3 days)
Waiting for mix and pour of charged material.

Shoulder rehab work with 2lb antique Ditson clubs.

Decided to add a little more flex to my #flexfriday with the Fowty.
*******
This practice felt a little odd, but I let my body do what it wanted to do today: squeeze.
*******
Opted for a more traditional style of practice(as opposed to my more competition style bias) giving a solid squeeze at the end of each rep. Particularly with my grip, core, and lats. .

Man Among the Ruins.
--------- 5+ mile walk with my 24lb mace this morning, stopped off at an abandoned factory to do some swinging for awhile. Trying out some new flows and movement pattern ideas. #operationwerewolf #nordaustur #waryoga #gada #kaliyugablues

Sumtola is starting to take shape - I need to open up the sides of the handle voids more, as they catch on the wrists in the back swing.
