Secrets Of Successful Animal Training

To become truely animalistic in your workouts you have to be a consistant observer. Observation plays a major role when you work on animal exercises. There are some exercises that are too dangerous but the ones that are simple are really the best ones to do. Watch Animal Planet every now and then and pick certain animals that you like. Watch how they move and how they use their bodies from various angles. In my opinion Apes and monkeys are the best to observe, they may have different structures then we do but we can adapt and improvise for ourselves.

For being a true animal you must learn to use your imagination. Be creative in what you do in your training. Just going through the motions can't hold a candle to being imaginative while physically moving. When you pick your exercises don't just hammer them out picture yourself as that animal. If you're a bear imagine yourself out in the wilderness moving boulders and every move you do you become stronger and stronger. You're a 800 lb beast with ferocious power and the strength of ten men and nothing can stand in your way. Imagine yourself as a 500 lb. gorilla that has enough power and strength that will make the strongest of men feel weak. You can pull yourself up with one finger and crush coconuts with your bare hands. When you have a mindset like these examples your results will come much quicker and much more consistant.

The beauty of this type of training is that you don't have to have a set/rep scheme like every other type of training or in a gym, you just go out and move like a wild animal. You're having a good time and you're playing with happiness and conviction. Making it fun is the most important secret of being a successful animal. Don't think of working out because if you bring that mindset into play you'll be missing out on the important things that make you want results not just physically but mentally and emotionally as well. I don't like doing sets when it comes to animal training its not ethical or logical. Do you see a gorilla doing sets and reps when he works out? Of course you don't thats the way he moves and the way his body was made for. When you learn to do the same thing for exercise, you'll find a much better concept.

Putting together an animal program to me is the easiest out of any type of training. All you do is pick a few animals, time yourself 8 min. 10 min. 20 min. or whatever you want and just go out and do them, either one at a time or switch after moving a few feet and keep going for as long as you can. Thats just an example but however you do your animal exercises is up to you. Forget about what you need to do and do this or that many times and whatnot just go out and have fun. Becoming strong and healthy is one thing but becoming a strong and healthy animal is even better.
