exercise routine

Post by warrior » Sun Jan 31, 2010 4:47 pm

How would a routine of dips, chinups/pullups,pushups and situps with a half hour to an hour of walking on a tred mill at 3.5 mph at a 2% incline be for a total body work out? Wouldnt this be better this would hit all muscle groups or should follow dynamic tension routine and add these in.

Warrior, except for the chinups/pullups, the exercises you mention are all part of the perpetual lesson. If you want to, you could add the chinups/pullups to the perpetual lesson and benefit from a great routine. The spirit of the DT course is to be machine-less and that includes a bar too!!! But there is n othing wrong with adding these. They are great exercises for the forearms, biceps and lats. I occasionaly practice them since I do not have a bar of mine.

By the way, since Mr. Atlas recommends running or walking 3 miles daily, you would have to walk a little less than an hour to reach that daily goal on a tred mill. I prefer to go out to the park, but I know that around these time of the year that is not practical to many of you in the States because of the winter.

Hi Warrior,

I personally would follow the d.t course, as best you can. before putting in any changes.

although that is a good routine, you have suggested.

there are reasons for following the course, as it is laid out.

when you go through the course, you will understand, i'm sure.

all the best Ian

I would get a leg exercise or two in there, such as the step back lunge and squatting. Walking is best done on nature trails in the fresh air, get out and walk.
