Well, I tell you one thing, Charles Atlas was in great shape for a man of 68! I have had to quit doing 50 deep knee bends, 100 situps, and 300 pushups daily, as it got to be too much for me to do daily. I will continue to try to do high volume bodyweight exercises, but only every other day. It's amazing how his measurements were almost the same at age 75, as when he was 30 years of age.

I read someplace that Charles Atlas ran 10 miles a day at the time of his passing. To be able to do that plus the number of squats, dips, and sit-ups he did every day at that age is a great accomplishment in itself and speaks volumes of the efficacy of the Charles Atlas Dynamic Tension Course.
