Ping Shuai Gong 500 Swing Work Out

 


500 hundred swing Ping Shuai Gong workout. My version is different in that I swing nine times and bounce on the tenth swing.  The standard practice is to swing four times and then bounce on the fifth swing. When you see the supporting video below, you'll clearly see the differences.  

Also, interspersed is my breaking up the action by walking in place. It helps relieve the dead legs from standing too long.

You ask the question, what makes me so special in changing the way this is done and taught?  The reason is because I have very bad legs and the additional bouncing wrecks havoc in my knee joints. Another reason is that it's easier for me to count.  What can I say?  I'm old and I forget easily.😁

My goal is to swing 1,500 times a day. This video shows me doing it 500 times. To meet my goal, I perform three sets which is about 10 minutes. Three sets is about 30 minutes (actually more).

I've read stories of sick people practicing two hours a day with great results. Ping Shuai Gong is popular because it's simple and, according to many testimonials, effective in dealing with diseases like cancer, diabetes, autoimmune, allergies, and heart conditions, all anecdotal, and not evidence based. My opinion is that it's both a mild workout with a belief that if you do it, the placebo effect will help cure what ails you. A practitioner once said that a minimum benefit is that you'll, at least, have really loose shoulders. And he laughs.

Check out the following video (in Chinese but with English subtitles). It not only provides cool testimonials which, to me, is quite convincing since I practice it each and every day, but it gives you key insights on what this is about and how you might convince yourself to work out.

 

Remember before starting any physical exercise, please see your physician and ask first, especially those of you with medical conditions. 

With that said, let the chi flow.
