Re: How Do You Train?

Once a day, in the morning, before breakfast, perpetual lesson, and any other DT exercises I might feel like I should be doing at the moment. And speed walking. Do you speed walk every day? I have tried interval brisk walking, where I walk for 5 minutes at a very brisk pace, followed by another 5 m...

Fitness Motivator

Less sugar, more fruit. Less meat, more veggies. Less soda, more water. Less worry, more sleep. LESS WORDS, MORE ACTION.

Re: You can make your exercises a success or a miserable fai

The exercises are fun if you do them as directed, training and not straining. That is the real key, and hard for us to learn, due to the constant barrage of the "no pain, no gain" philosophy. Also, the latest rage is high intensity training, short intense workouts. In a short time, you get burned ou...

Follow The Course As Written

The Atlas Course should be followed as written. Improvisation is not needed, as it is complete within itself. I have learned this the hard way. Constantly trying to increase reps, training to failure, eventually burns you out, and can cause injury. So a word to the wise, follow the course as written.

Re: Getting rid of belly fat ~ easy

My wife and her brother go hiking every Saturday morning for about 3 hours, the snow here in SW Ontario doesn't stop them. They plan to do the Camino de Santiago trail this Summer, 791 km (490 miles). I've maintained my body weight of 138 lbs, most guys at work think it's ridiculously low but I was...

Re: How Do You Train?

It looks like you have a very sensible workout regimen. Walking every other day is a good way to prevent burnout.

Re: How Do You Train?

3 sets of 50 reps each. I'm 21 years younger than you, so I don't know what advice to give you. I've done the fewer reps and more sets routine before, and it seems to work too. If going back and forth from doing higher reps and fewer sets and lower reps and more sets works for you, then by all mean...

Re: Merry Christmas And Happy New Year!

A belated MERRY CHRISTMAS to all! New Year's resolutions? Well, I'm not into that anymore, but if I were, I'd resolve to keep on pressing own with faithfully practicing physical culture according to the principles laid out in Charles Atlas Dynamic Tension course, and to do a better job this year at...
