Hello Everyone,

I received an e-mail about the Full Body Isometric Contraction which I refer to in the New Power Belt Course as the 'Pull-Press-Flex' . The person asking the question asked me if there is anything else that I would put on par as having equal Importance as that one exercise.

Let me respond this way. Dr Lawrence Morehouse stated that there are 5 Daily Minimum Maintenance activities that if performed daily would guarantee a state of readiness and foundational fitness.

They are:
1) Allover full body stretch and joint manipulation
2) Standing a minimum of 2 to 3 hours daily
3) Overload lift (Lift something heavier than required in day to day sedentary living) once each day.
4) Heart Walk 3 Minutes or more to elevate pulse. (Bench Step, Squats, Jump Rope etc,)
5) Burn at least 300 calories in daily activity ( a 3 mile walk would easily meet this requirement)

The Full Body 'Pull-Press-Flex' X 12 reps daily more than fulfills #3 above. However, the other 4 Minimum Maintenance Habits are every bit as important. A word to the wise---Do Them.
