    These articles will explain what I'm saying. You can probably just read one of them. It's about body awareness, opening the senses, mind-muscle connection, posture and breathing with your entire body.

    Don't neglect that I said they have to improve in form and function as well. As well there is my suggestions for improving form and function, which is to incorporate the mind and basically qi gong or meditation. You have to do both. Perhaps "mind in body" when young, and "body in mind" when old. The distance between the two shouldn't be very much however.

    And that has absolutely nothing to do with the statement you made "Copious amounts" and for the record metal also uses white foods as well and wood is associated with the liver and Gall Bladder in TCM and would also include green foods.

    Eating is to balance Yin and Yang and there is no such thing as a copious amount of any food to maintain balance

    That's a bit overstated, but still a good point. The fastest marathon was in 2:02:57. That's about 16 seconds per 100 yards. A normal, fairly fit person could run 100 yards that quickly, and could certainly run faster for only 20 yards. Still, pretty danged fast to have to keep up for mile after mile.

    After I have done 5 days of 1000 non-stop XingYi Pi Chuan, today I started to drill 1000 non-stop XingYi Pao Chuan. Instead of using it for warm-up, today I drill it after my 2 hours regular training. This way I can be more relax when I do it since it will be the last part of the training that I'll do today. The 1000 Pao took me 58 minutes.

    I divide the single drill into 3 steps. Starting from the block and punch.

    1. Extension - Pivot the front foot, extend the punching arm, put block arm fist next to my waist.
    2. Compress - Move back foot next to leading foot, wrap and pull the punching arm back to the waist.
    3. Release - Step forward, punch one arm, block another arm, back foot slide in.

    This is a good drill to train

    - power generation.
    - ever punch should followed by a pull.
    - All body parts move/stop at the same time.
    - Hand coordinate with foot, elbow coordinate with knee, shoulder coordinate with hip.

    Are you practicing this for health, form or self defense?
    I don't practice any Kung fu so I'm just curious not judgemental.

    The XingYi system is always one of my cross training CMA systems. I have always train it for combat (I don't like the term "self-defense"). Starting from 2018, I start to use it for "health". I still have my regular MA combat training. The 1000 Pi (or Pao) is only a small part of my daily training..

    The worse you are at it, the lower your upper limit. Someone very good at push ups can do thousands a day without long term damage to their body.

    And what has that to do with your earlier comment?

    If you want to do more push ups, squats, etc. then you need to learn the proper form, muscle recruitment patterns, and whatever else is part of deep learning how to perform exercises at higher and higher reps while improving longevity rather than reducing it. The next line is literally "you'll hurt yourself or have slow results", and then I go on to say how you should be more mindful while performing push ups and learn the proper way to use your body and increase your body intelligence, so that it's safe to perform higher repetitions. I say more about it but that's the gist.

    Well, yeah obviously. So why did you say "no one does".
    You should learn proper form with every exercise like why did you make that statement.
    Do you have a proper push up technique?

    Yet, you said (oddly) that they don't know how to do one properly, nor does anyone else.

    Don't even need to be a martial artist to talk about that, but I doubt he has much experience in calisthenics.

    I start to think whether I should replace my 1000 punching drill by

    - 10 different drills 100 times each, or
    - 20 different drills 50 times each, or
    - ...

    I wonder which will give me the most benefit. Any suggestion?
