Exercise will take the amount of time provided to do it in. Yeah, I know, that’s “Parkinson’s Law.” If you’re like me, exercise of any kind can get to be a drag. I’ve done them all for all of my life: Free weights, Machines, Bullworkers, Total Gyms, Nordicflex, you name it. It gets old fast. The trick is, how can you get the maximum amount of benefit from the least amount of exercise? How much intensity do you have to put out to get the best results without knocking yourself out? Well, I’m 79 years old. This morning I did 100 non-stop pushups, T’ai Chi and Kung Fu katas, Heavy Bag, one of the three Yoga routines taken from “Richard Hittleman’s 28 Day Yoga,” leg raises, Pilates Ab Exercises, and Yogametrics. The pushups are a self-test of my strength, the T’ai Chi, and Kung Fu is to program my body’s bio-mechanic defense responses in case I have to fight, the Pilates is to strengthen my core; and, Frank Rudolph Young’s Yogametrics is to strengthen my entire body, mind, and spirit to make sure I win that fight. The whole thing takes about an hour and a half.
