Train Like A Jedi Knight

So in honor of Rogue One being released I thought I would deviate from the norm a bit and share a workout from the marvelous Neila Rey. Partly because her workouts are always themed around pop culture like the Jedi training I'm sharing today, and partly because, in the words of Socrates “No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.”

The ancient Greeks, whose form of democracy informed the creation of our Republic believed in moderation and that for the mind to function properly and be in good health the body too must be looked after, a precept mirrored by real world Shaolin monks and the fictional defenders of a galaxy far, far away.
