I tried a weight vest and disliked it. BUT, using gymnastic rings with elevated legs, along with slowing down the tempo works like a charm!

At least for me. I think temperament of the individual...

Jane Brody

I have to say that, very consistently, Jane Brody gets it all very, very wrong about nutrition! She never changes her mind from the high carb, low fat protocol, despite all evidence to the contrary....

Superslow

For me, the last piece of the puzzle is Superslow exercise- doing a pushup, say, at a really slow cadence.

I do faster reps, but I always finish with really, really, REALLY slow reps! This...

It's all about Food Quality

Decided to chime in on this post, since it seems a sincere quest, and a common one!

As recently as the 1960's (look at old movies and tv shows), finding a fat person was rare. Even a moderately...

Money!

Because he cares about MONEY and WEALTH more than anything!

All else is hardly worth noticing. Focus is what achieves. WHY he focuses only on money is meaningless to me, but that is just me. ...

Great grandparents diet!

The Paleo diet, really, is just about going back to our great grandparent's diet. BEFORE processed foods, and before everything we ate was laced with modern, altered super-gluten wheat (sprayed with...

Thumbs up Perfect Fitness

That's the name of the company: Perfect Fitness, and they make the normal, weak version as well. (Which I wouldn't recommend to my mother, who is 91)! Light duty at best.

Very smooth action, and...

I love the perfect pushup device!

I have used a pair for years! I had the standard model first, and wore it out in a couple of months. (Light duty bearings froze up from high rep pushups.)

I got the heavy duty model, and they...

reps and numbers

You know, thinking about it, this is a wonderful recommendation:

No specific numbers of reps, or sets- it's all dependent on the individual!

AND, if you did achieve the 200 reps of an exercise,...

First Thing in the Morning!

This is how I start my day!

Really, I can't imagine starting otherwise.

I do my warmup exercises, getting the synovial fluid going, and stretching in moderate level. Then, I go...

I have three exercises that I love to do in the HIT protocol:

The "360", which I learned about here on Transformetrics. Very HIT-like, in my estimation. Swinging that weight around your head, 30...

The term "Paleo" is just a kind of template to me, meaning, natural, God-made, real foods. I think it resonates with a lot of people, including me!

To most, it just means "no wheat", and minimize...
