Re: Dynamic Tension while in my cubicle...

One of the biggest advantages of the Atlas Course is its portability. Once you learn the exercises (especially the last lesson, with its exercises for "perpetual" fitness), you can take them with you and do them anywhere.

Re: He Inspired Many People!

I concur. Jack LaLanne and Charles Atlas are my two health and fitness heros. Both are "gurus" of the industry as far as I'm concerned. I own Jack's last book, "Live Young Forever," and it's EXCELLENT. Definitely worth the time and money to read! This is a guy who, even in his 90s, was still exercis...

Re: 100 Pushups, Etc>

Bridge, Yes, I do exercises like push-ups every other day. In general, I embrace Atlas' apparatus free approach, and his combination of bodyweight calisthenics and isotonic self-resistance exercises. About the only area where Atlas and I part ways is that I believe that a chinning bar is essential i...

I'm 38.

Been exercising regularly since Age 12, but only discovered the Atlas Course only when I was 36. Loved it!

Re: 100 Pushups, Etc>

It could take a number of months to get up to where you can do 100 or more before reaching muscle failure. However, doing my three sets of push-ups/dips to muscle failure program every other day WILL get you there eventually. If a person has never exercised in their life, I'd guess that it'll probab...

Re: 100 Pushups, Etc>

I can do over 100 push-ups before reaching muscle failure. I advocate doing a set of push-ups until you feel muscle fatigue, resting a few minutes, then doing another set, and then repeating the process again for a third seat. Over a period of months, the number of push-ups (or "dips" as we Atlas fa...
