When do you know if you love somebody

That was the question asked to the protagonist in a movie Liam and I were just watching. The protagonist answer fullfilled every romantic notion: ‘Because without her life doesn’t make sense to me’

I looked to Liam and asked him heartfelt: ‘Why do you love me?’
He looked back and answered without hesitation: ‘Because you make no sense to me’

Needles to say, I’m still laughing

Day 81 – Do you need to love or be loved?

Met up with an old friend the other day, who put down her gloves to pursue the world of yoga. And just as her adventures with muay thai, she grabbed yoga with both hands. Moved to India for 6 months to study, live and breathe yoga – and when we met, she said this about relationships: ‘The best balance is when someone who needs to love, finds together with someone who need to be loved’.

If you think about it, it can make perfect sense. There is a giver and a taker. Nothing and no one is 100% one thing of course. The giver needs to be loved too – but maybe not as much, as the person who needs to be loved. Likewise the person who needs to be loved, will also love the giver – at least in my world. I can’t picture two people staying together for a long time without any love between them.

Would this also explain if one person feel ‘too good’ for the other person , and therefore holding back on committing?

I guess if relationship could be had with yourself, it would be more simple. Anyways.. yoga thoughts for thought!

Day 93 – Some men just want to watch the world burn

The famous quote from Batman – or rather Alfred, when trying to explain evil caused by men, that couldn’t be explained by greed, fear, rage, anger, revenge, lust or love. I remember hearing that sentence and it really stuck a chord with me.
How do you react to people’s action, when you can’t understand the background for them. When nothing gives meaning and can’t be comprehended by the normal means of understanding.

I don’t know how that feeling is, and I don’t know anyone, who just want to watch the world burn. People I know, can occasionally act, like they don’t give a care about anything or anyone. But there would always be a selfish reason behind the action. A desire to destroy out of anger, greed or another strong emotion.

All the strong desires for destruction I’ve felt in my life, have been born out of situations that have caused my emotions to escalate. My guess would be, that men with want to burn down their world, would have no such thing as emotions to disturb their path.
I don’t know, if you could call the joker emotionless, but he sure wanted chaos for chaos.

Sometimes, I think it would be nice, not to think, feel or worry about today, tomorrow or ever – and kind of just live to watch the world blossom (rather than burn) – but I’m not sure if the process is reversible? Could you be a (wo)man who just want to see the world come alive?

Bustet up, Siam style

Friday night with Muay thai training in Siam.

Really good session with Abdul, that left my triceps burned out!
Lot of pad work, finished of with bag work – that actually did kill the poor upper arms.
3 min drills bag work:
30 sec: Hard n’ heavy boxing
30 sec: Pushing bag (in front of head, switching from shoulder to shoulder)

30 sec: Left/ right kicking
30 sec: Hug bag from squat position/ stand up w bag/ down again

15 sec: Fast hands
15 sec: Hard n’ heavy

Class finished of by 100 push ups! (did 30 on knees)

On the heart attack note:
Calmness has settled in, and I’ve retired to a waiting position.
Heartache is a terrible condition, so exhausting and leaves you for dead.
I need to live again, smile – and maybe feel the warmth of love, so I wait
and see where to go from this.

Choices are always hard, once made it opens a window and closes a door.
When to make the choice, and which to choose is the hard part,
So therefore I wait, and hope for a sign
Waiting for the sun

Love this album btw

New gym tricks

Besides being a day of heartbreak, yesterday was also the day, where I got to train with Anders Fabricius Nedergaard again. He’s also one of the masterminds behind ‘Kropogkraft.dk’ and he knows a lot about functional weight training. He’s the sort of guy, who all athletes should have behind them. So no doubt, I felt very lucky to sneak in on a training session with him.

So what new, did I learn?:

Well for starters, I got my dead lift sorted out. And then Anders told me about the benefits from rotation and stabilization drills.

Did one, which could best be characterized as a straight, half TGU. DB or KB up in one arm straight – and then sit up straight. Weight above head. Will introduce it to my class next week.

Also a push through with barbel – a sort of straight FCT. Works on stabilizing core and push effect – which can be transferred into the same movement as punching.

Last new thing was a variety of one arm push up. In order to get the best from this drill, its important that my wrist gets better (that’s a obvoius) – and then to hold the body straight, instead of compensating by twisting the torso.

Also managed to throw in a small, but fast paced run. Training never fails… when everything else does.. trainings here..

Programme w Anders:

OH Squats: 2 x 10 x 20k
Deadlift: 2x 4x 30Kg
2x 4x 40Kg
4x 4x 50Kg
4x 4x 55Kg

Straight ½TGU:
8 x 4x 8Kg

Straight FCT:
4x 4x 20Kg
6x 4x 25kg
4x 4x 30Kg

One arm push up straight/ against wall:
6x 4

Usefull notes: Keep reps around 4 and sets around 6 – 8

Wrote my heart out, still waiting to be read

I still haven’t sent my letter about love…

Heartbreak

It’s really hard to wake up and be in a bad mood. The day is fresh and the night served images from wonderland, still crisp behind the eyes. But then I remember, I spend all last night on writing this letter, about my love, and I remember why. Then all of a sudden, heartbreak is close by.

love

I love the way you lie (sic)

“Love The Way You Lie”
(Eminem feat. Rihanna)


Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
But that’s alright because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
But that’s alright because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

You don’t get another chance
Life is no Nintendo game
But you lied again
Now you get to watch her leave out the window
Guess that’s why they call it window pane

This is the last time you broke my heart
