anyone ever try singing while they train?  I was training at my local park, with my headphones in and kinda just felt like doing it.  I found it self indulging, exhausting, and a great source of information. 

I learned some things about the pacing of my breathing that I hadn't noticed before...especially on moves that required me to lift my knees into my chest, or when I need quick successive explosive movement.  I encourage my fellow practitioners to give it a go.  The great thing is that we don't have to worry about looking weird singing while exercising, because we already stick out doing PK...how much could it hurt to sing while we do it?  I mean, I can't be the only one who has been training on my own and spontaneously broke out into dance while training cause the song that was playing on my ipod made me feel like dancing...why not take it a step further?  Why not indulge the flow we feel from the music that inspires us while training?  Feel like I'm rambling....

summary...sing while training, it fun.

sing + train will give you more respect for some of the dance music singers...
It takes a lot of work to do both well.

Zetaman.tv, episode 15 had "Blue Blaze". Right off I could tell he does some pk training.

I don't think I can sing that well, but maybe that would be a cool video to make.  Maybe like three or more guys training "a cappella."  Carrying a simple tune like this guy didhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlW5c4tInvY.  Lay down the back ground harmony doing simple things like sound bytes of rolls, tick tacks, cats.... basically whatever simple sounds we make doing Pk (tweak sound a bit with synthesizer and layering software).  I think quick runs while singing a line would be best we could get before winding ourselves. 

Anyone want in?

Balance walks and other high skill low power moves would be ideal for singing longer lines.
Sony's ACID program - not sure what features the demo version will give you. It allows loop and linear recording, etc. Can be fun.

yeah, song choice is very important.  I was actually thinking of an instrumental version of a song and we re-do it with just our voices.  Actually since putting it together would be all digital, you could help me with this too gregg.  I'm going to go get some simple sound bites of me running and what not, and play around with it.  I'll post it up soon.

Singing is all breathing and muscle control and forces total present awareness...great idea

Crazy idea, but I could bring my guitar to a training session and we could have kanikapila conditioning! Live music makes sense to me cause you want to adjust the tempo to match the rhythm of your drill, right? I have a djembe as well

This is maybe taking it too far but i can also arrange harmonies to help people know what parts to sing. Maybe its a dumb idea.

This is a nice and simple idea.

But I don't think song choice matters. Could be Brittany spears or anything with easy lyrics and other people are going "bap bah" or "do do" for  rhythm. Military march songs would serve the same purpose...

Ryan,
No we haven't really met. I think you were at the movement seminar with the camera but left early? I am in my 30's, was there with a buddy my age. A couple of out of shape architects.

I texted you this morning about kaimuki. I was on the mainland when you were going last time

I tried out silk screen t-shirt printing for fun the other week and here's a design I came up with...was tons of fun...probably cost me about $3 to make total.  you can either use contact paper (1 time usage) or make a silk screen design outling it in mod podge (multiple uses).

Basically you need

1. embroidering hoop ($1)
2. some kind of mesh material that paint can go through (I used a plastic screening thing I had left over from fixing a screen door)
3. Mod Podge (I already had)
4. paint (supposed to use fabric paint, but that's expensive, acrilic worked fine for me)
5. cheap cotton shirts (you can get a 6 pack of shirts from walmart for $10)
6. (optional) contact paper instead of embroidering hoop, mod podge, and mesh material

Using contact paper
a. cut a design out of the contact paper using a razor blade
b. stick it straight onto the shirt
c. fill in design with paint & let dry
d. cover design with paper and iron over for 3-5 minutes
e. enjoy

Using screening technique
a. pull mesh material tight across embroidering hoop
b. trace desired design onto mesh material in hoop
c. paint mod podge around material and let dry (takes long time)
d. paint in the design with paint and let dry
e. cover design with paper and iron over for 3-5 minutes
f.  enjoy
