Its understandable to me’ how lower body energy balance/strength could be a concern! Its as if' an even greater strenth pervails although beyond our comprehention?..If you can't beatum join um!
I would say’ integrate a Yin qi` practice more as a life change, at least 5 times a day for 5 min. each time, practice (Sheng Zhen Qi gong)..-> means the expression/expereince of ”Unconditional love
Gym workouts are ok but do they follow the protocols of staying with (TCM)’s findings and perspective of maintaining harmony with in the body and within theTao?. i.e. are our actions non-disruptive in our internal and external nature and performed with good/unselfish intentions. Sheng Zhen Qi-gong focuses on creating an emotional-alchemy with the powers that be by outRight practising (being happy & staying pure, smiling warmly with acceptance towards one's self and feeling impathy and a gennerus concern for others. Pacticing Qi gong is like choosing happyness/choosing to be happy! Qi-gong sees the main chakrah-vortex and energy (storage centers) as, the Hearts-of palms, forward-center of souls of feet, head, Heart & eyes, the three burners, the Eight extraordinary energy vessels, the twelve Organ channels/meridians, the Crown and intuitive Centers, and emotional-alchemy. What I’m saying is take your Qi practice with you, rehearse & share it more'.
The Yin Qi practice mimics the movements and energies of nature and of the universe.
Rising falling, spiraling, worming cooling, shaking-radically, building energies aggressively, Grounding and washing re-charging the body’s personal space clean of invasion! A Yin Qi practice is in harmony with the perspectives within the Taoist philosophy. Sheng Zhen Qi-gong’s #1 focuses is on creating an emotional-alchemy between the energy of the self and the divine unlimited universe of Chi.(vital life energy).
Qi-gong sees the eight main chakrah centers as the Hearts of palms, forword & center on the souls of the feet, the heart, head/crown, the eyes & the three burners,the(Tantiens) the 8- two main & other six, extraordinary energy vessels, the twelve Organ channels/meridians, the Crown and intuitive Centers, as an alchemists oppertunity for a greater more authintic expereince of life's energies physically and emotionaly . What I’m saying' is take your Qi practice with you, rehearse it more' & share it offten.
The Yin Sheng Zhen Qi practice' mimics the movements the directions of the energies in nature of the flowing and turning of the galexy and universe. Rising falling, spiraling, worming cooling, contracting & expanding, shaking-radically, building energies aggressively, grounding and washing, re-charging the body’s personal space and cleaning it of weaknesses and all outside invasions.
Creating an opportunity for an uninterrupted dialogue of energetic exchange between self and the unlimited (Source) of Vital life forces, the universe which can be’ as strong as one needs it to become. And by the way' resting the hands and wrests on the low back is great news for the (Kd) & while your at it begin gently bouncing up and down and spiraling at the trunk, laugh if you like’- just think of something funny smile-laugh out loud move and relax.
The un compartmentalizing of your person and activities' is your quest!
Follow your own drum the one in your own chest, slow down enjoy the scenery a little more, stop, say’ & be wholly grateful when good things come your way.
It does seem odd however, that the strongest part of our body should be the part most venerable to poor circulation ?I.e The lower body.
Try yoga before working out to inherence your results. Yoga is like Self_Help Mio-Fascia release : )
1st. develop a daily practice. Wake up its make it or brake it time. (SS&S)
ZaZen meditation 3-10 min. i.e. third Party/detached observation, of inner and outer states of your environment- move into breathing practice(s) 2-5 min, then into peaceful cleansing sitting Sheng zhen qi-gong w/-( energy washing, chest expansion & contraction movements) 3-10 minutes, - into standing Sheng Zhen Qi gong 3-10 minutes =20 min. + 18 two- minute brakes one every waking hour = 36 minutes + 2 min.-before bead time and 1 min.-3-6 times daily before eating drinking or snacking , mindfully compose your self/mind and energies 30 sec. to 1 min. before and after bathing, or evacuating, avoid contaminating the eyes or the body.
These optimum performance protocols are a list of remembrances' called regulating principles. All together equals little more than a total of a hour of your time out of a twenty four hour day! It has been proven that when it comes to health, safety and efficiency of performance that two to five minutes per hour will pay great dividends all around.
A Yin-Qi gong practice proves outRight that we can’ choose happiness and the divine gestures of unconditional love in Sheng Zhen are a fine place to start. *See YouTube. We are ment to be whole not fragmented beings Yin Qi gong's energies serve to return our experience of life to one of wholeness’ energetically at least. I also recommend Reki, for its forward affirmations and worming touch & near-touch movements/and prayers that set the seen/mood nicely for the 2 mind(s)*the stomach & brain to become calm and relaxed 1st., which opens the heart and provokes the Chi, experience. Your Organs respond well to chi. “Chi is life giving' energies, "Chi commands the blood, love commands the Chi no love no Chi, no Chi no life” (TCM)
And with this knowledge/skill-set, and an abundance of this type of strength (Chi) you can teach heal & give life energies and emotional support back to the (Source) and to others, within a short time of practice.
I feel that energy transformation/balancing and transference is the cat’s MeeoW.
And I know that there are others like me who are attempting to analyze all facets of endurance and fatigue and too present our findings comprehensively, hear are some of their results-
“Change eye-focus, near to far-every hour, close & or rest-eyes hourly 1-3 min. juggle projects to stay sharper more efficient & less board.“
Practical science also has discovered’ that we should/must observe the rituals of rest nourishment and energetic re-centering as well, several times everyday. Basically we are obliged to mindfully actively babysat our states of body mind and spirit. The good news is it can be done’ and the reword is a reciprocal equally-generous experience of support from the unlimited & divinely just’ creation.
The bad news is’ if you don’t observe the 'hourly' rest work regimen after 1 hr. y-our efficiency drops some 500%” the answer is' don’t push through your fatigue address it & show it the door! And come back at optimum efficiency. I find a hot bath (soak) when I can get it, is a good start or end of the day! * The Heart, (KD) & Spine connect to all other organs’ so spend substantial time keeping them subtle and free -flowing everyday! Think of Yin as the pervading energies and Yang as the impulsive one. applying the strategic use of both' find your own voice and inner balance! ’Good luck ..
