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.

February, the month of Valentine's Day, is a great time to turn up the pilot light of your amorous side, if you are in a relationship. But really, any time of year is the perfect time to feel passion about life and your partner.

The following suggestions will rev up your libido and get you in the mood.

• Avocado – The Aztecs called the avocado tree “Ahuacuatil,” which means, translated, “testicle tree.” The ancients thought the fruit hanging in pairs on the tree resembled the male’s testicles. This is a delicious fruit with a sensuous texture. This luscious, sensual fruit contains vitamin B6 and is helpful in increasing male hormone production. In addition, potassium is found in avocado, which aids in regulating the female thyroid gland. A healthy thyroid is important for a robust libido level.

• Asparagus – Many foods thought to be aphrodisiacs were considered so because of their phallic shape. Asparagus, however, has more than just suggestive form. It is rich in vitamin E, a vitamin considered to stimulate production of our sex hormones and may be essential for a healthy sex life.

• Chili Peppers – A pepper’s heat comes from “capsaicin,” a chemical that stimulates our nerve endings, raises our pulse and makes us sweat. Some researchers believe that eating hot foods also triggers the release of endorphins, body chemicals that give us a natural high that is conducive to love-making. I take capsules of cayenne pepper every day.

• Figs – An open fig is thought to emulate the female sex organs and traditionally thought of as a sexual stimulant. Breaking open a fig and eating it in front of a lover is a powerfully erotic act.

• Garlic – The “heat” in garlic is said to stir sexual desires. Make sure you and your partner share some together. Garlic has been used for centuries to cure everything from the common cold to heart ailments. This is a good time for moderation. Enjoy pasta with a light garlicky sauce and it can lead up to something spicy in the bedroom later.
