1,000 Consecutive Days of Serious Exercise
Yesterday, I made it to 1,000 consecutive days of doing significant exercise, – by doing 2,000 ab/back crunches–all angles–this morning (See "minimums *" below).. Later in the day, 90 minutes with the weights for the upper body. Lets aim for a big 2,000 (health/life permitting). Even on that day of surgery 6 weeks ago, it was working out at 6 AM, and the the day after? After 10 PM to keep from a lapse of days. Compulsive / Obsessive ? or ! More like – keeping me alive, strong, and tough.
I sure wish I could find as few as 100 men a year to wrestle/grapple with. Almost three years, and only 60 (plus about 10 who had quite the site). Now that would be REA exercise; and done in earnest, wrestling works ALL the muscles – even those difficult to work by weights and calisthenics.
*I have my minimums. It doesn't count as exercise if fewer than 500 crunches, 250 deep-knee bends, or 2.4 miles of walking/running, 18 sets with the weights (but usually do 5 or 6 sets of 6+ exercises). Like to do 2 or 3 of these and/or other items as well – such as that "perfect exercise" WRESTLING/grappling (But that has been so hard to find locally lately)..
All the exercise pays off – makes me a stronger man, stronger wrestler, than most guys half my age or younger; and I plan to forge ahead yet stronger. Think about taking me on if you are ever local.
