Under the table

I've sometime put a broom handle across 2 chair backs to do reverse push-ups but that can be dodgy as chair can tip. Then I got under our solid dining table and did some reverse push-ups there and it worked really well, great for the forearms.

Re: Heat

The West Coast of Canada was hit hard with very hot weather 50°C/122°F, here in Ontario we had a couple of hot days but nothing we couldn't handle since summer here is usually hot and humid.

beyond push-ups

Do lots of the Dynamic Tension exercises, tensing/flexing the muscles.

Re: Daily Abdominals

Rule number one, don't anchor feet when doing sit-ups. I have done them in the past with knees bent and feet flat, this is used as a core strength test.

Re: Daily Abdominals

Knees are straight but not locked out. No jerking like I've seen some do, always control.

Daily Abdominals

Recently I've been doing daily abdominal work, toe touches, side bends, full sit-ups and full leg overs. Also that exercise where you lay on your belly with hands behind your back and lift the upper body up.

Re: Saw Palmetto Extract +

Still taking the Saw Palmetto, bought 6 months worth, and can say the top of my head is much hairier, I'm letting my hair grow now from a buzz cut. A supplement I started to take is Super Prostate Extra Strength 60 one a day, Not so much for prostate but some bodybuilders use it to preserve testoste...

Re: Vegan Options

Nowadays there's a lot of vegan meat substitutes, beef, chicken, turkey and even fish. Some that are vegetarian may contain dairy or egg, so you should read the labels.

mind/muscle focus

Generally I do one set each, I don't focus on doing a load of push-ups but more muscle tensing. When I do something like a bicep curl, I'm not trying to mimic a heavy weight when applying resistance so much but the resistance is to aid muscle tensing focus.

Re: Senior Health Update

The nature trail we walk on has a sign posted at one end warning of coyotes, coming out at another location a sign warned of possible ticks. I've had one bite me once whilst gardening at my mother in-laws who lives in a small Ontario farming town, they have a lot of mosquitoes there. I got the tick ...
