Just 1 Minute of Intense Exercise Rivals The Benefits of a 45-Minute Workout
First off, a caveat: 1 minute of intense exercise does not mean 'start, 60 seconds of exercise, finish'. All up, the routine will take you 10 minutes, which includes warming up and cooling down, but really, it’s 10 minutes. Everyone has 10 minutes.
Hehe... And what they fail to mention is: it can take a while to put your mind in that frame...to psych oneself up to doing exercise...
No one is going to just drop and do 20 sit-ups out of the blue...
True. Personally, my favorite exercise is walking. Walking is probably the form of exercise the human body is best adapted to, since almost everyone throughout history did a lot of it. So, as I see it, a daily walk is all the exercise you really need to be healthy. Of course, it's not too hard to convince yourself to go for a walk on a nice day, but it's not so easy when it's 30 below and windy.
Also: conditions...if you walk in my neighbourhood everyone in their cars slow down to stare... But a nice tree-lined street...yes...I can see that happening.
My sister and bil have a thing going where, during the day... Someone Calls Out: Anyone want to take a Walk? It can be nice for bonding also...
They also have a ping-pong table...
Yes, I'm fortunate to live in a place where there's easy access to hiking trails. The downside of my location is it can be very windy for long periods of time in the winter. Two toques aren't sufficient to stop the icy wind from freezing your head, you need something with a hood, like a parka.
I should really make a point of going for a walk first thing in the morning every day, rain or shine. But, sometimes I just don't feel like it. lol
Exercise in the morning can be a good habit for awhile...until one grows tired of it.
Have you seen the movie Private Benjamin?
Goldie Hawn is one of the few women in the army...funny...
No...it's an old movie - but if you like movies about women in the army you might like it...
Could be. All I remember from seeing it at home on DVD...was that it was funny...
Omega 3 fish oil yay. 乂^◡^乂
Oh yes...and for a few more pennies you can take a protein powder which WILL take away your appetite...make you feel full and along with your regular routine you will notice the inches melting off in no time.
There's a small amount of truth to the protein powder if you use it to substitute carbohydrates for one meal and eat healthily for the rest of the day but most people will take the powder then go to mcdonalds
I bought a facial massager once which promised () to take years off if I only used it 20 minutes a day.
I was all excited using it for the first couple of weeks...could hardly wait to do my 20 min. - even did more...but after that my interest deteriorated and especially since I didn't see an astonishing change...I wasn't motivated enough to continue.
For those would-be authors out there..."they" also say: just force yourself to sit down and write - about anything - for an hour a day. Soon you'll be an author...etc.
A friend of mine told me about the writing course he took at university. It mostly consisted of long writing assignments, just putting words down on paper. At first, this was a struggle, but it didn't take long before he could sit down and write a 2000 word essay with ease. As his professor pointed out, the best way to get good at writing is to do it.
So we are all doing well as we are writing on Amirite.
I think so. Sodahead, especially, did a lot of good for my writing ability. There's a tendency among "writers" to be long-winded, because writing teachers like to assign long essays. But in the real world, people have a limited attention span, so you learn pretty quickly that being concise matters.
Concise, yes I know what you mean. Sometimes I've tried explaining something quite complex online and ended up giving up as I just couldn't explain it in a short compact enough sort of way. 乂>_<乂
Yes, but. Sometimes the long version is more interesting... I don't mind long-winded comments as long as someone throws some white space somewhere - anywhere - it doesn't have to be at the end of a graph.
An issue with our posts Questions is: returns don't take: so it just ends up being a blob of words. Hard on the eyes and the brain for digesting.
I agree, I think it would be nice if Amirite allowed for some formatting in the question text, sometimes the setup to a question is more complex than a single paragraph will allow.
I've thrown spaces into long texts before, but it takes time and it can lead people to believe I'm skipping over parts of a quote when I'm not, so it can make it easier to read, but it's not an ideal solution.
Another approach I've tried is to post the question in the comment area, but you've got to do it fast or you might not be the first reply, I've had that happen before.
As a rule, I've found that if I'm going to write something long, it had better be entertaining or people won't read much before giving up. That doesn't mean my longer posts are always geared for maximum entertainment value, but I know that the more entertaining they are, the more likely they are to be read.
Yes...I sometimes also try to elaborate on the post Question in the comment...I sometimes write it up in the Explanation area and then copy it into the Comment area...then delete it in the Explanation area...just to get a jump on being the first one to Comment...
Yes...but I agree...it's difficult to get something on Politics to come across as entertaining.
"It only takes about 5 minutes a day"...Having secks, if I'm lucky.
In 5 minutes?
Lol...I make jokes...Any guy that done it for the first time that lasted more than 5 minutes should become a p0rn star.
