    the yoga postures for the back that i do, love 'em or hate 'em, all do something positive. these are them in order of sequence:


    boat

    bow

    camel

    bridge

    wheel

    the only drawbacks i know are that they are all in the same range of backbend. however, gravity and the way in which you're based on the ground (on hands, on shins, on belly, on shoulders, on feet, etc.) all make each work a little bit different. add this to good mornings and supermen (**** you, lousy haters ) and my back gets stronger every week.

    Personally, I prefer stiff-legged dead-lifts to good mornings - they work the lower back just about the same, and if you suddenly feel like your back is about to give out or you're lifting too much, you can just let go.

    I was going to chime in with that, but I bit my tongue. I go on about them all the time anyway .

    i would do deadlifts, but the fact is, the most i could do of them weight-wise is around 65 lbs., not because of lack of back and ass and leg muscle, but because that's all the weight i have here at home. i don't have a gym membership, and i don't plan to get one. the reason i choose good mornings is that, since the weight is further away from the fulcrum, thus requiring more strength to move the lever that is my torso. i'd love to have the weights for d/ls handy, but i don't, and i'm not going to buy them right now. all in due time.

    Maybe you could deadlift some of those trees you've been hugging, hippie

    Yup, there have been numerous research articles written on this effect. This is true for all types of sports and activities, and it's why visualization exercises are so central to "sports psychology". Olympic lifters visualize lifting world records with ease, track stars visualize running world record times and blowing away the competition, etc etc.

    Watch Kung Fu Physics Materialize Before Your Eyes
    Nathaniel Ainley — Apr 26 2016


    Kung Fu Motion Visualization from Tobias Gremmler on Vimeo.

    German multimedia designer Tobias Gremmier visually captures the poetic kinetics of martial arts in Kung Fu Motion Visualization. This four minute video is the latest project from the prolific author, musician and cyber-savant. Posted to his Vimeo, Gremmier materializes the physics of the human body through digitally analyzing the movements of a kung fu drill. Each motion of the fighter’s body is outlined and traced through by a trail of digital dust particles, a mesh of geometric planes, or a stream of fractal webs.

    Each action flows like a river current. Bruce Lee once wrote “You put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” Gremmier masterfully displays this in high-def. The performance traces the movements of the routine like a trail of smoke behind a skywriter, or a current carving its way through open waters.

    Gremmier’s complex digital scan measures the fighter’s movements in terms of velocity, time, and space, altering the parameters of its visual manifest through a number of variations. It's fabric woven by time, velocity transformed into matter, expansion out of emptiness.

    Check out some snapshots from the video, below:

If not, then what would be a good way to visualize yourself doing your techniques? Also, can visualizing too much do more harm than good? If so, then how much is too much? Thanks in advance.
    Visualizing sad puppies during sexy times increases stamina.

    Not too sad though, because that's a fetish!
    Kung Fu is good for you.

    Visualization does help in training. In free fight training, I would say no more than 20% of the times solo is top. More than that is too much.
