My apologies for not being consistent with posting about our YNY Wellness initiative, but quite frankly some of Chris Crowley’s chapters are not only uninteresting, but a little hard to take. The man is living a fabulous healthy life and while his bravado might inspire 50+ men, it leaves me a little cold.
My opinion aside, here’s a (very) quick summary of some of the chapters:
Chapter 1: “You have to age, but you don't have to rot away.”
Chapter 3: “Most of what we call aging is actually decay” which “is optional!”
Chapter 4: “Harry's first rule: Exercise six days a week for the rest of your life.”
Chapter 6: “Harry’s second rule: Do serious aerobic exercise four days a week for the rest of your life.
Chapter 8: “Start with being active and THEN work towards the other challenges that will make your life healthier.”
Chapter 9: Use “kedging; climbing out of the ordinary, setting a desperate goal and working like crazy to get there.”
Chapter 10: “Harry’s third rule: Do serious strength training, two days a week for the rest of your life.”
Chapter 11: Aerobic exercise = endurance.
Strength training = power and neural coordination.
Chapter 12: "HEALTHY looks and feels good on men and women.”
Chapter 14: Don't diet, that’s it. But follow the fifth rule: Quit eating crap.”
Chapter 15: “If you buy it, you will eventually eat it.”
Chapter 16: “If you drink (alcohol), do so in moderation - 1 drink a day for women and 2 drinks a day for men.”
As the authors state, “Life is an endurance event: Train for it!” May we all ‘train’ ourselves to become "AWAKE! ALIVE! AWARE! and Appreciative of ALL that IS".
Namaste my friends.
