Check out this 69 year old's workout

After my workout Sunday morning I was giving myself a pat on the back.
100 lunges
100 pushups
30 dips 20 chinups with legs raises
10 burpees with a pushup
60 standing start jumps over various bars
500 other limbering movements

Then I watched this guy's routine!

He's 10 years older than me and leaves me in his dust. :-(
With better abs too!
Room to grow, Tom, room to grow.

The Primal Blueprint

Here's a link to an interesting site for those interested in eating as we used to. If you would like a copy of the book, drop me an email and if enough people are interested I will see about getting some at a cheaper rate than we could obtain them individually. http://www.marksdailyapple.com/
And here's a good synopsis of the rationale of exercising more like our ancient ancestors: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/the-characteristics-of-hunter-gatherer-fitness/

"You know I've been working on different translations the past months, all about absorbents and the ironic thing is I know now of at least 2 absorbents who could have handled the oil spill effectively without any danger whatsoever to either people or the environment.

That makes you really wonder why they use that poison then?

I mean those people who earn on it, they also have to live in this world and breath the same air we breath! Thanks for trying to do something about this!"

Quote From The Dalai Lama

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered "Man.... Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived."
