Never used an inappropriate eye catcher before…so…let’s see if it works 😂
At least it’s still relevant and fits the specificity of this topic!
I was having a laugh the other week with a fellow blogger about my profile pic…and…why I use it.
The image serves an important purpose for me.
A couple actually!
Firstly…it’s pretty far away from the true representation of who I really am…what I’m about…and…what this blog stands for.
Any marketing professional will be reading right now in bewilderment…alas…this route…completely fits my need and purpose.
I’m disturbing the paradigm and assaulting all preconceived perceptions of first time visitors to my space.
I think it’s one of the reasons the blog is rapidly becoming a lot more popular.
What people get…is…probably the polar opposite of what they expected once they start scrolling.
What’s provided is unique…different…and…I’m sure the majority of my followers will completely back me up on that.
This is a space of consciousness…a place of “Meandering thoughts” that come together with purpose and intent.
An insight…into the inside of my mind!
Lastly…I also realise that to truly make a difference mentally/physically in people…we have to infiltrate the most prevalent areas of popular persuasion/culture.
That profile pic…is my only affiliation to “Pop culture”…the….”Changing room selfie.” (That and my new found emoji addiction 😂✌️)
The best bit is…many won’t have clocked that I’m actually taking the piss with it.
I’m taking the piss…because I’ve more than earned my stripes…more…than earned the right to do so.
The pic shows the type of physique 99% of men and women are dangerously brainwashed into obsessing about.
The type of physique 99% will never attain…and will feel like shit for never attaining.
I think it’s quite poetic when the guy who actually did achieve it…mocks it…because the industry is poisonous….doesn’t care about us.
Only ever done one other post before where I show my physique…or address it…as…it holds zero importance to me.
I used the collage you see below…in the post linked above…not to show off…but…to warn people away from that type of lifestyle. (They show pics from 2003-2017/18)
Been away from that life for 7/8 years now.
My attitude regarding it as a clinician…is…yeah…ok…whatever.
Nice body…but…what can you do with it…which…leads me nicely into the main part of this post.
I surprised a few people in the last installment…with my random crazy Vienna video.
For some strange reason…comments were disabled!?
Had a few subscribers text and email about the pull ups on the scaffolding!
More interestingly…they all commented on the dismount!
After explaining my rationale to them…I offer a little bonus.
I love to do a cheeky robot/body pop…while doing a pull up 😂😂
Don’t ask me why…just realised it was a pretty cool thing to do…and a great party trick!
With new year on the horizon…hopefully this will inspire somebody to see that it doesn’t matter how you look…at all!
Image equals irrelevance.
How we move…how we function…how we perform…and the ability to be in control of our body and mind…will always trump any aesthetic outcome.
Many think the “Pioneer Of Movement” title was given to me because of what I do in my clinic.
It is very fitting…which is why I still use it…but…I was given that because of things like below.
These are only 10 second videos…from 3 years ago…but they’ll show you where I’ve come from…and how I can dismount the way I did in Vienna so nonchalantly.
Have the best day ever my friends ✌️❤️
(This is I suppose the equivalent of doing a robot on a bar)
(Total body control)
(No matter how many weights I’ve smashed over the years…I’ve always realised you’re nothing training wise…without proprioceptive control)
(I simply reiterate the same statement above the last video)
What A Day To Be Alive
