Simple Push-Ups for a Muscular Body by June

newhealthguide.org
You want to be a bit athletically muscular by next school year? Start these simple push-ups now and do it daily for a chance to be fitter by month of June. It worked for me in 2 months before. It might work for you, too.

First Step: Position yourself on the floor for a regular push-up. The only difference is, you put your hands a bit closer together, about 7 to 8 inches gap between your thumbs. Feet together, push yourself further up with your tummy also fully raised up. Stomach in. This is your beginning position. Make sure no part of your body slouches.

Second Step: Bring your body down, your chest touching the back of your hands in front of you. Inhale while doing this.

Third Step: Push your body up as far as it can go, with your tummy with it. Don't let your stomach area slouch. If possible, push your tummy higher. Exhale as you do all this. Then repeat steps one to three.

Do 4 sets, with 30 repetitions each set. Meaning, do 30 or more push-ups (do them slowly and make sure you do them right each time according to the 3 steps above) and then rest for a minute or two. Then do it again, up to 4 sets. Then do it a second or third time later in the day--another 4 sets an hour after lunch and another 4 sets an hour after supper.

If you can't do 30 repetitions, just do the most number of repetitions you can make. Don't over stress yourself. Perhaps, 20 to 25 repetitions will do initially. When you have build up strength (probably after a week or two), do 30 or more.

You will begin to feel your arms, chest, and shoulder muscles improving a bit in the first 2 to 3 weeks. Your tummy muscles may develop, too. Then you're quite improved by month of June. But do continue everything until your muscles fully develop. And consult your doctor before you start this program.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.



Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
