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 do multiple sets of 25 pushups as suggested for the Perpetual Lesson, or do you do higher rep sets? I go back and forth from doing ...

Train, Don't Strain!

This is the greatest inspiration I got from the Charles Atlas course, and it changed my life for the better, getting me away from the "no pain, no gain" theory, that was breaking me down.

How Do You Train?

Morning and evening? Before breakfast? Every day? Every other day? I find that if I work out two days in a row with high volume, then rest one day, continue to work out the next three days, and then take a day off, works best for me. I don't do well with two days off, as I get lazy and start to make...

It's just the name I give to the workout that Atlas did when he was 69 and beyond, which I now follow, being a senior citizen myself.

Re: Atlas Senior Citizen Workout

I'll try to work out at least 5 days a week, thus far I have worked out every day, but I know I'll need to take some recovery da...

Re: Atlas Senior Citizen Workout

And don't forget, guys, the more pushups you do the more your abs are worked, also - isometrically, since you have to maintain the correct position (body straight). And do either of you put some dynamic tension exercises anywhere in there? I would suggest the awesome exercises in Lesson 1 (Rope Pul...

Re: Atlas Senior Citizen Workout

I do the squats slowly, as well as the crunches, in good form. The pushups I do quickly, but with good form while doing my walk. Fast or slow, it's the time the muscle is under tension that counts.
