– Healthy Body Healthy Mind –

I’m trying to get back into shape. It’s a shame that my “best shape” was around 6 years ago and has been a steady decline into fattyness.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not obese, but I’m also far from fit!

A few days ago I bought some home gym equipment. I’m looking to develop my triceps, deltoids, pectorals and abs (core) – what I see to be vital muscle groups for popping.

I remember Slick Dogg once discussing the preparation needed before entering a battle. He said you need to limber up; you need to warm up your muscles and stretch those fibres. So when it comes time to dance, your body is well prepared and ready to perform at its best. In essence, you need to treat your body like an athlete would, because dancers are athletes in their own respect.

And I agree. In order to get the most out of your body, you need to know what exactly your body can do. I think sport and exercise is an excellent way of understanding your body’s capabilities. I also agree with what the ancient Romans and Greeks believed: a healthy body is a healthy mind – and I hope that by keeping fit, it will help improve my determination, creativity and co-ordination.
