Exercise Ritual: 1

February 24, 2017

Although, I had slept yesterday at around 12 AM (I was unable to sleep because I slept during the day for 2-3 hours), moreover I was sharing my work to my friends over messenger and I was so excited about it. But anyway, I woked up at 5 AM with the alarm.

Even though, I didn’t felt like waking up, I woked up. I finished Auto-Suggesting at 5:15 AM.

Here goes a Quote, “Self-discipline is the ability to make yourself do what you should do, when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not.” –Elbert Hubbard.

(While exercising, I listen to Motivational video, I play it in background in my laptop.)

I started doing Diamond Push Up at 5:15 Am.

After that I did Abs Crunch at 5:32 AM. I do it 50*3 REPS i.e 150 REPS. I don’t know it’s exact name and what exactly it does to body. But it act as Buffer between my two Diamond Pushups.

Next Push Up at 5:40 AM. 50 REPS.

Heel Raise at 5:41 AM. 50*3 REPS, total of 150 REPS.

Last Push Up at 5:43 AM. 50 REPS.

Chair Dips at 5:44 AM. 50*3 REPS, total of 150 REPS.

(Seen those stacks of copies and pencils, it’s not mine. Mom is going to donate those copies, pencils, pens and volleyball to the student of Government School. 52 more bags are remaining to be bought.)

First Sit Up at 5:53 AM. 50 REPS. Well, currently I am not doing full sit ups, I am just doing partial, enough to create pressure in my stomach. You know it’s hard, really hard to do 50*3 Perfect Sit Ups, so for now I am sticking to easier sit-up form (Partial One) and will increase the intensity with time.

First Dumbell Lift at 6:02 AM. 50 REPS.

(I used this weight and Dictionary as a stand for my Iphone to take picture.)

I use this as Dumbell because I am not eating any diet, just Dal Bhat (Rice, lentil and vegetables) twice a day and 3-4 Roti (Bread) between them. Moreover I want to be slow and take my time to make this exercising habit strong and super automatic. I also don’t earn money and I don’t want to give my mother extra stress by spending on everything I love to. So, I will just wait till I make my own money before I buy my own personal set of Dumbells.

I have been making use of what has been locally available to me since my early days, about 7-8 years ago I used to use single brick. After 1-2 years, I used two bricks, I bore hole in the middle of Bricks and connected them by Rod. It took me 2-3 weeks of continuous effort to bore the hole. I used to work before and after the school with hammer and a blunt rod, I had to be slow and soft otherwise the brick will break.

Second Sit Up at 6:04 AM. 50 REPS.

Second Dumbell Lift at 6:06. 50 REPs.

Third Sit Up at 6:08. 50 REPS.

Third Dumbell Lift at 6:09 AM. 50 REPS.

Other than just exercising I also started doing few Yoga and stretch. About 2-3 months ago, I used to had lower back pain, I thought it was due to cold bath. But I wasn’t in the idea of giving up bath due to Back Pain, I thought of dying in the battle field. Later, I searched over internet for remedy, then I found these three over the Youtube. It has worked well. Since I started doing all these three in same time, so I don’t know which one has worked. I think I will stick to all these three as for now.

Flat back bent at 6:12 AM. I don’t know what is it called. 3 REPS.

(Back Exercise) Camel and Cat at 6:19 AM. 3 REPS.

Yoga at 6:23 AM. 3 REPS. I don’t exactly know it’s name.

Body bent at 6:36 AM. I touch my toe with hand without bending my knee. 3 REPS.

(Well, even though I have written “Running” in my Daily Routine I don’t do it because I don’t want to hurry, I want to make slow and stable progress. I am just 20 years old and I have enough time ahead, so I will just wait and make this current routine more strong and better before jumping into something little bit hard. I will just wait and be mentally prepared for running.)

Well, I am not becoming muscular by doing these thing, I am hardgainer, I have skinny genes. So it will be very very hard for me to gain healthy muscular weight. But I am happy about it, I am becoming healthy and strong. It’s good to exercise, there are 1000s of benefits of exercising from ageing slowly, increase in immunity, better emotional health to becoming energetic and active.

By the way it generally takes me less than 25 minutes to exercise but today it took me about 85 minutes, since I was also capturing my photos.

It’s been more than 6 months, it feel awesome and automatic. It has become a habit. I don’t think I have missed a single day. In the beginning I started from small step but over time made tremendous progress. Beginning days were hard and painful.

Well, it’s not that, I started exercising in just last 6 months, I first did my Push Up when I was in class 6 about 8-9 years ago, I first meditated about 4-5 years ago when I was in class 9. But I wasn’t regular, I used to do it for few months and leave it, and again start after couple of weeks or months, and again leave it. I wasn’t regular. But since last 6 months I have been so-so regular. So, you may not achieve the same thing as I did, in just 6 months, it might take years or more, but just keep doing and keep going. As long as you keep going, you will make it someday.

After exercising, I did Meditation from 6:38 AM to 7:03 AM. I meditate by sitting in the same chair I used for Dip because sitting in lotus position gives me tingling in my legs, it hurts and my legs sleeps. I count my breath till 500 times.

Then I Cleaned my room by watching Brian Tracy Seminar in Youtube from 7:03 AM to 7:54 AM.

Then Bathed at 7:54 AM.

If everything goes right then I will generally finish my whole routine in less than 2 hours.

I hope it inspired you. Moreover I am just recording my daily life for my future self to learn about my past, it’s just part of my journaling. This is just a Personal Blog.
