The background music in this post is my daughter Ana, practicing on the piano. She’s a brilliant musician with a great ear. The song itself is from a classic movie about Philippe Petit, the man who walked between the trade center towers of New York on a high-wire – a secret mission that no one knew about until he was up there, dazzling us with his courage and commitment to life itself. Because, as Philip put it, “I just had to do it.” Likely a call from his guides who knew it would inspire those who discovered his story to follow their own dreams and callings with the same kind of relentless pursuit.
“If you want something, nothing is impossible.”
The quiet discipline of strength training can help you get there…
This is a great move for your shoulders assuming you can do it without over-tensing your neck. Keep your elbows slightly bent and your knees slightly bent too for a more active pursuit of these dumbbell later raises. –John
