Re: Training Log

I have a small book that has an inspirational passage for each day of the year. I like to read it in the morning, after I exercise and have time to meditate a bit on it. Really helps. I also read my bible every day at night,before going to bed.

Re: How Do You Measure Up To Charles Atlas?

I forgot to mention that it also helps to spot your weak areas. For example, as was my case when I first wrote this post, my arms and forearms were at 89% of the ideal, whereas the rest of my bodyparts were above 90%. So I had to work more my arms to be more symmetrical.

Spearhead, I would personally use the average. The calculator is not exact science, but it will give a rough estimate of your natural potential if you train the Charles Atlas way. ;)

Re: Atlas Designed DT For Life

Well done Arjuna!!!!! Those people that are not into exercising yet maybe will get encouraged to do so when they SEE something we posses that makes life easier and more enjoyable for us.

Re: Easy Does It!

Bridge, I have also tried mini workouts (3 mile walk included). They give a rush of energy that is unbelievable, besides being fresh to tackle other things :) I did push-ups, deep knee bends, sit-ups and exercise 1 from lesson 6 for the back. 2 sets per exercise in the morning, midday and at night. ...

In this forum there are many knowledgeable people, many of whom have been training for many years and people that are new to training. I have learned from them all.

Re: Quotes

As a corollary, I would like to add: "Aim to develop strength of character as well as strength of muscle. Make discipline an ally rather than an enemy"
