Push-Aways: Build Strength & Tone Muscles


PUSH-AWAY: The Easy-Peasy Strengthing Exercise for All Ages

On the program This Week in America, with host Ric Bratton, we discuss the topic... The Magic of Exercise: Tips for Staying Motivated to Workout. These are tips I've used with clients, friends, and family worldwide for decades and they really work. You will be so motivated to exercise that you'll probably start a workout before the show is over. Share this interview with family and friends.

Below is the recipe for RENEW ME Pineapple Green Smoothie. It's excellent to drink before and/or after workouts for endurance and exercise recovery, and it also supports weight loss and vision.


 

For decades I have been doing Push-Aways, a word I coined in the '70's when I was the first fitness trainer in Los Angeles. I do them anywhere and everywhere I can. They are so simple and effective. Actually, they are simply a modified push-up, which is usually done on the ground. But much of the time, we don't want to get down on the ground to do a push-up when we are outdoors. So a push-away is perfect and lots of fun! Within a few days, you will see your strength improve and you'll be able to graduate to doing more reps on a lower railing, too.

During my hikes and outdoor power walks or jogs, I'm always looking for railings, walls, benches, fences, banisters, tree stumps, and anything on which to support my body weight. I even do them in my kitchen on the edge of island and peninsula, my office desk, and even on my bathroom vanity.

Notice this photo of my client Peter above near his home in Malibu. He is using the railing of the walkway to do his push-aways. Vary your arm position. Peter is doing this set with his hands placed under his shoulders. This gets the chest, front of the shoulders, and arms. If you keep your elbows close to your sides, you will also get your triceps (the underneath part of your upper arms). Then after a few seconds rest, do another set with your hands a bit wider than your shoulders, which is great for strengthening all of you chest muscles.

INTERVIEW WITH SSJ

Susan Smith Jones, PhD, hasn’t been sick in over 30 years. She doesn’t receive flu shots or take medications. Some people may call it clean living, others may credit luck, but Jones attributes her phenomenal health to the wisdom passed down from her grandmother who taught her to rely on nature’s nourishment—food, spices, herbs and healthy lifestyle choices— for total wellness.

Jones has made it her life’s mission to spread this wisdom, first as a teacher for more than 30 years at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), and by establishing herself as a foremost expert on diet, nutrition and natural remedies, writing more than 2,000 magazine articles on health and 27 books, including Walking on Air, Healthy, Happy & Radiant...at Any Age, Living on the Lighter Side, The Curative Kitchen & Lifestyle, The Joy Factor, and for children, Vegetable Soup/The Fruit Bowl.

When it comes to creating vibrant health season after season, Jones said we should look to the “super foods” and other lifestyle choices for healing the body, boosting immunity, and feeling energetic and youthful... at any age. Each day when you wake up, she says, can be a new beginning, a fresh start where you commit to the healthiest lifestyle possible. She reminds us that we are the President and CEO of our body and our life and we need to make our health a top priority day in, day out.

Here are her top tips for staying well — mentally, physically and spiritually — this season and beyond.

Excerpts from The Joy Factor: 10 Sacred Practices for Radiant Health

 

In Chapter 5 (Exercise — Fast and Slow, Alone and Together: I Choose to Move) of The Joy Factor, I cover in detail the best exercises to look younger and tune-up your body, and also share many amazing stories from my clients' experiences about how exercising regularly changed their lives, from individuals to families. This chapter will inspire and motivate you to embrace a life of fitness, especially the personal story about my first marathon and how my grandmother, Fritzie, rallied me on from the other side, a year after she passed away. Here's a brief excerpt from the chapter. And if you need help staying motivated to exercise regularly, please click here

Excerpt from The Joy Factor — Chapter 5 below:

We all know exercise is a key component of vibrant health, yet statistics reveal that only about 25 percent of Americans make exercise a regular part of their lifestyle. My hope is that after reading this chapter, if you’re not already a fitness enthusiast, you’ll be helping to increase the percentage. Whether you have several children and are busy with them from morning to night or are CEO of a Fortune 500 company who puts in 12-16 hours a day, seven days a week at the job, you must find time to exercise.

If you can’t carve out an hour each day to exercise, or even 30 minutes, then break the time up into 10- or 15-minute allotments. It should be pretty clear by now that I don’t believe in gimmicks and potions and magic pills, and I promise you there is no substitute for exercise. The old “I don’t have time to exercise” excuse just doesn’t work with me. You must make fitness a priority — a nonnegotiable part of your day.

You need — we all need — to find some type of physical activity that fits into your lifestyle and that exercises not only your body, but also your mind and spirit. If there is one self-help idea that has really caught on and that I’m sure will stay with us, it’s the idea that physical fitness transcends the physical body and benefits your mental and spiritual fitness as well.
