Re: Chest excercises

Nothing can replace the Dips. They are not just a chest excercise but they develope the triceps and shoulders as well. Even the lower back is kept tense to prevent the stomach from touching the floor and the stomach is kept tense to prevent the back from arching upwards. Before I started the Altas C...

Re: Chest excercises

Once the initial 12 Lesson course has been completed I would not suggest that anyone ever does a single daily workout that does not include the Dips, Squats, Crunches (upper abs) or Knee raisers (lower abs). Even the Perpetual excercises no. 5 (lower back) and no.6 (Bicepts) are pretty important. Ba...

Re: Booklet

Hi gang. You all seem to have Ten Steps To a Better Body so I don't need to mention the other Atlas Memoriabilia such as the fridge magnet and the trading cards, but one thing that tends to get overlooked is the flip side of the giant Charles Atlas poster which is a wall chart of the Ten Steps intro...

Re: Listen To Your Body

Thats good advice, we all need to take the odd day off from time to time but rather than allow yourself to feel dissheartened about your missed session it is far better to turn a day or a weekend off into a positive thing by seeing it as a necessary recovery day, allowing your body to recuperate and...

That is untill I ordered the "Ten Steps To A better Body" at the start o...
