When I first posted the video ‘Move like a Ninja’ on Friday I started by saying this was ‘your girlfriend’s new favorite warm-up.’ But why?
- Most significant others enjoy their partner being able to ‘move’ well
- I’ve never heard of someone complaining their partner ‘moves to well’
- People who don’t like Ninja’s can not be trusted
- Chicks dig Ninjas –> don’t believe me…
The video description was very formal and scientific (I will elaborate a little bit and dig deeper in the the science and stuff here and pictures of course)…
1) Start standing tall — like you are about to receive a high five from me
2) Keeping your knees straight and hinge and your hips and place both hands gently on the ground.
3) Go on and walk those freshly manicured hands of your out in front of you into a perfect push-up position
4) Nail a push-up that would make Chuck Norris proud — come up in a straight line, no one likes a sagging ass.
5) Swiftly take your foot and place it right on outside of your hand — don’t half ass it and put it by your hip OR swing your leg like you are kicking down a door. I said swiftly!
6) On the leg of the foot that is by your hand pull your knee towards your elbow — don’t let your knee drift away from the body or you will be ‘Rock Bottomed”
7) Let your hips sink towards the ground, lock out your trailing leg as straight as an arrow — yea you feel that now don’t you.
8) Breathe you silly goose.
9) Take your hand that is right next to your foot and reach it up to the ceiling as high as possible while following your hand with your eyes the whole time (you are not reaching back) — at the same time push through the hand the is still on the floor. **Think of spreading your wings out super long and flying like Jack and Rose**
10) Didn’t I say to stop holding your breath
11) Slowly bring the hand back down towards the foot, return the foot to push-up position and repeat on the other side.
12) Walk your hands back in towards your feet while bending your knees at the same time — basically like you are doing a squat just with your hands on the ground.
13) In this bottom squat position use your elbows to push your knees apart, and get nice and tall by showing that awesome logo on your shirt to the person/wall in front of you.
14) Keeping the same back and head position you are in slowly reach both hands overhead like you are doing the ‘Y’ in ‘YMCA’
15) Put your hands down
16) Wink at all the people jealous of you being a ninja
17) Repeat for 6-8 reps
18) Use my Ninja line as your opener for internet dating — make sure I get a +1 to the wedding
Let’s get something straight
Squats aren’t bad for your knees –> your shitty squats are bad for your knees
Pushups aren’t bad for your shoulders –> your shitty pushups are bad for your shoulders
Deadlifts aren’t bad for your back –> your shitty deadlifts are bad for your back
The importance of learning how to move and what positions are safest for your body is so important.
Lucky for you I have been obsessed with this sort of thing since I was a kid. I always had to know why and how?
I can’t even begin to tell you the amount of time I have spent watching videos in slow motion of my favorite athletes analyzing every little last detail I could find.
Which is exactly why I decided to write an article on it.
To be honest I am more excited about this article than any other article I have written about before — like really ridiculously excited.
