Going Through the Motions of CrossFit

With the coronavirus, it’s become dull, dreary days of the same thing.

For me, it’s this:

  • Get up
  • Work out
  • Work

Today, I got up and did a heavy workout I particularly did not want to do, but I did it. Indifferently.

I am waiting until I can feel again.

I Feel Alive Working Out

In these days of the coronavirus where you are stuck inside all day long with nothing to do and nowhere to go, it’s hard to feel alive. You are physically breathing, but are you living? Not when you can’t go and do the things you want to do.

The only thing making me feel alive is when I work out. When my heart starts pumping and I do the things others won’t do. When my body moves like it was designed to do. When it’s hard. Only then do I feel alive.

You Can Stay Fit With Just Dumbbells

With the coronavirus causing the world to pause, many people have embarked upon at-home workouts with just minimal equipment. This usually involves just a dumbbell.

I’ve been doing many of these workouts in addition to my lifting regimen, and I can say that I am thoroughly getting my ass kicked.

Dumbbells are a challenge in and of themselves. You have to manipulate them differently, and they will most definitely catch up to you.

When I first started a couple of years ago, every time I’d be extremely sore. Now, I just get beat by them. I am coming to enjoy dumbbells. They are a great break from the barbell that’s for sure.

So with the coronavirus raging, get a set of dumbbells and stay fit. You will come to like them and be good at them. Just another tool in your wheelhouse you’ll have when you need it.

Being Unstoppable When The World Says Otherwise

In a world that tells you to stop living, to give up your dreams, to not go anywhere, to not do anything, to fear for your life, to give up on others, to lay your plans aside, and to not trust that God has got it, in such a world, you need to be unstoppable.

You need to push back, to not believe the lies, the hearsay, the hysteria, and the antics, and to keep moving towards your dreams.

You cannot stop while you have breath in your body, while your legs can move, and your arms can reach for the stars because one day, you will be stopped.

None of us know when that day will come, which is why you cannot stop.

Don’t stop living because the world tells you not to. The world is not in charge; you are.

God will call you when He wants you. Until then, keep moving, keep living, keep dreaming, keep fighting, keep hoping, and keep praying.

Be the unstoppable force you were gifted with from the moment you were born.

what founding fathers say about coronavirus

First Man-Made Depression

For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Newton’s Third Law of Motion

People are in hysteria. So is the economy. The government is playing dictator under the guise that they know what’s best for us. But do they?

When is the fact that our freedoms are severely being impinged upon going to matter?

Millions of people died from the bubonic plague. Millions. The death rate was about 50% of those who got it. Yet, there was no force shut down of businesses. People self-quarantined, and those who had it were quarantined. And this was the Black Plague. Economic depression resulted, not because of a shut down of businesses, but because half of Europe’s population was wiped out.

If this mess goes on longer than 30 days, most of us will lose our jobs. By the time the government deems it safe, it will take years for our economy to recover. People’s lives will have been set back years, and maybe even ruined — all because the government is overreacting to a tiny virus that is going to die out on its own this summer.

I’m wondering what our Founding Fathers would say to this. I’m wondering how we let our government with one breath, tell us to shut down everything we’ve worked for our entire lives.

Politicians don’t care. They will pay themselves using fake money that we will all pay for when inflation goes through the roof.

What began as a precaution has now hit hysteria. Our economy is drowning. Americans are struggling, believing in a government they should not be believing in.

The government is playing God.

This could be America’s first man-made depression. Hopefully, our leaders will realize this before it’s too late. Or, hopefully Americans will take to the streets, demanding the government take action.
