Well, though I’d love to put a few more zeros and a couple more $$ signs behind those numbers up there and tell you you won the “unexpected lottery” I can’t do that in good faith, can I? Hehe.
Nah- those were my workout numbers today and what a workout it was to be sure!
I did pushups today, sure – some of them straight out of 0 Excuses Fitness, but they didn’t figure in the numbers above. In fact I only did a measly 50 pushups today before I collapsed and called it a day.
What did I do, then?
Well, I did about 5 HARD rounds on the heavy bag, for one. I hit that sucker HARD and heavy for 5 minutes bouts, and between that?
I did an old favorite of mine – something I used to do way back in the day. Something that strips oodles of fat off anyone who does it for any length of time. Something that is WAY better than “long slow distance” cardio.
And what that BE, you ask?
Well – jumping rope, my friend.
Jumping rope is one of the most effective, yet most overlooked training exercises out there. One of the best investments you can make in yourself (fitness wise) is to buy yourself a good quality jump rope.
Believe me, you’ll have the workout of your life – once you get in good enough shape to jump rope for any length of time.
Most folks would be hard pressed to pound out 25 regular jumps in good form and cadence – let alone multiply those numbers by 10 – or 100, for that matter.
And when we’re talking backwards – forwards – diagonal jumps – and many, many more styles – well, I could literally write an entire BOOK on this, and still think of more ways to utilize this excellent piece of workout equipment.
So if that is something y’all be interested in, let me know and I’ll see what I can do. It’s currently NOT in the works – but all depends upon the feedback I get on this one!
Now in the meantime, what if you don’t know the different variations (and believe me, there’s tons that are NOT readily apparent) – or aren’t in any sort of shape to jump rope to start with?
You put an image in your mind of what it is you are trying to accomplish. The end result. In this case that’s a fit YOU. A svelte, fit YOU!
Then you crack open the 0 Excuses Fitness System, and get started on the following – –
Hindu Squats, regular pushups, “table pushups” and the bridge.
Start by weaving a workout around these exercises. You might not be able to do very many when you first start out, but I guaran-damn-tee you that the flab will start flying off in record times. In fact, it’s NOT a stretch to say you’ll be literally “attracting” fitness when you bear the above in mind, and do the right exercises!
Or (bearing in mind the subject of this dispatch) should I say you’ll be attracting the “bling of fitness”, hehe.
Pretty soon you’ll be in such excellent shape that when you DO get that jump rope – a 100 or so at a go won’t be a big deal at all.
So take the first step now, my friend. GET in that sort of shape by following what I mention in the 0 Excuses Fitness System, and write back – and tell me about your fitness journey – I’ll share your tales with the world!
P.S. – And yes, the System contains several sample workouts that could also be termed as “ball busters”. Your heart will feel like it’s raced several miles by the time 10 or 15 minutes are over – and you’ll get benefits far OUT Of proportion to the time you put in.
