Want To Get In Shape? Watch Another Infomercial!


You know I have always wondered how people of yesteryear, likeEugene sandow, John Grimek, Steve reeves, Jack Lalanne, Joe Louis, Charle Atlas, and many others that i could mention couldpossibly get into such fantastic shape without all these gadgets, gizmos, and late night exercise machines being touted all over your favorite TV stations.

I mean let's look at what is happening here! You have got Ab dolly, Ab rocker, Ab lounge, Abwheel, Ab-this-Ab-that, andI am not saying that they may not give some results but let'sface it if any one of these was a "cure all" why do they have to keep coming out with more??????? And why do people keep buying the latest and greatest thing? Well i will tell you?

SALES AND MARKETING! These infomercials have it down to ascience. You will notice all the hard bodies that promoteall these gadgets and here you are back home watching fromyour tv saying that if I buy this i can look like him/her andthis will solve all my problems right? Wrong!!! First of all how do you know the people that you are looking at on tv actually got all their results from the product that therepromoting? You Don't.

But psycologically, your saying to yourself, this is the one,this is what finally is going to do it for me. This is what ihave been missing out on. They hit all your "Emotional Triggers"and "Hot Buttons". And you make the purchase and and lo and behold you are no better off then where you started from.

I will give you an example: (6 pack abs). Before they came outwith all this inform ation about what to do and not to do regarding situps and crunches, leg raises, etc. people were just doing normal sit-ups on a board, or having somebody holdthere feet down, not maybe knowing that maybe they are puttingstress on their lower back? A lot of the old time athletes hadtremendous ab development and strength. How do you figure that?How could that be? How is this possible? I mean god forbid if itold you some deep breathing exercises could give you somenice ab development. And you didn't need to invest any of your hard earned money on useless gadgets and gizmos.

Well getting (6 pack abs) is more a "diet" thing then any exercise that you could possibly think of. You can do 1,000sof any exercise you want, and it will strengthen the abdominals.

BUT? If you want to see those "ABS" you have to get rid of thelayers of "fat" that are covering them. END OF STORY!!!!!!!And that has to be done for the most part through properdieting and calorie manipulation. I don't care what contraptionyou buy it won't help if your diet isn't right.

Getting Back To Basics: In my opinion a "Boxer" is one of the best conditioned atletes out there. Especially if you look back at the old timers going (15-3min rounds). And going back to John L. Sullivan days maybe more than that. Think about themonetary investment? A jump rope $10? no money, run in place.Start throwing your hands out like you are sparring, keepmoving around, side to side, back and forth, go down to thefloor do some sit-ups. some leg raises, jumping jacks, jogaround the block, sprint from telephone pole-telephone pole.How much money have you invested?

How did they do this? a Jump rope, combat boots for running,some calisthenics, and a makeshift heavy bag. What no hi-techequipment? No fancy gadgets? And these guys were in great shape?No way!!!! Oh yes they were, and you can too.

The point of all this is before you spend your money on allthe things outside yourself, "think" how did people before meget into tip top shape, you already have what you need. Thelatest and greatest fad is not going to do it for you.

I have a set of stairs about 12 of them from the first to secondfloor of my house, I make it a point to run up walk down about20 sets everyday. I challenge you to do this and then tell me you need to go out and buy a treadmill, gazeelle, cross-trainer,or whatever else you can think of? No set of stairs? Go downto a local football field and run up and down bleachers, you will get my point.

Look I am not against new technology, I am just more into commonsense and "GETTING BACK TO BASICS"
