america's leading cardiologist (2010) "sweat is the best cardiovascular agent known to man"
the best sweat ever came from playing squash
it took seven pints of fluids to quench the thirst!
the heart is the weak link in our body
understanding the role and structure of the heart will help with longevity - https://health.clevelandclinic.org/why-chronic-high-blood-pressure-is-so-dangerous/
the first goal of exercising is to work up a sweat without taking the pulse-rate above 120 beats per minute
blood pressure - systolic = the moment after the heart beats is when the pressure of the blood against the arteries and veins is greatest
diastolic = the moment before the heart beats is when the pressure of the bllod against the arteries and veins is least
SWEAT ROUTINE
exercises done in rotation - 10 sets x 10 reps for all exercises
barbell press behind head (standing) (7kgs)
upright rows (7kgs)
bent-over dumbell raises (3kgs) https://endic.at/exercise.dumbell.bent-over.raise.mp4
front dumbbell raises (3kgs)
standing alternate arm dumbell curls (3kgs) http://endic.at/exercises.alternate.dumbbell.curls.mp4
standing tricep dumbell extensions (3kgs) http://endic.at/exercise%20standing%20tricep%20dumbell%20extension.mp4
blood pressure and bpm... before 107/77/76 after 151/70/114 - 47 mins - sweaty forehead, nape, and back - moist chest and stomach - clammy shouldersa and buttocks
notes
standing press behind neck - press backward and upward
breathe in during the moments of least effort - breathe out during the moments of greatest effort (any sportsman will tell you that boxing is the most demanding sport - boxers breathe out when throwing a punch)
lock the knees and lower-back whenever the exercise permits it
squeeze the barbell and dumbbell during the moments of greatest effort
squat: for reps - square root of body-weight - body-weight for core strength
the current sweat routine is using minimum weight for every exercise - dumbbells 1.1 kilo - barbell - 4 kilo (going at it too enthusiastically causes his tendons to play up)

breathing through the nose will keep you within your comfort zone (increasing longevity is not a matter of pushing yourself to the limits of physical endurance - it's more a case of synchronising or optimising the organs of the body to the heart)

i can't believe how quickly this exercise has become so easy
when this exercise was first started two months ago to the day i didn't expect it would ever become this easy
it was thought there would always be a strenuous feel to it
not so
it is very nearly at the point of effortless
the bpm is going up but the effort factor has all but gone
a higher bpm without strain does seem to fit in with working up a sweat
a five-day rest between each exercise was the main contributing factor in making this exercise easy

happy to report that having five days of rest between exercises for the deadlift has resulted in the exercise becoming a doddle
what next ?
faster movement more weight more reps ?

after a five day break it was thought that the deadlifts exercise would be a bit of an effort
not so
it was the easiest set yet
the optimum rest-time between one set and the next is still uncertain
it will of course vary from person to person
the goal of "to be growing the day we die" isn't achieved by adhering to the current paradigm surrounding weight training "more weight more muscle"
to the contrary, this website believes that the tissue of the internal organs is what we need to concentrate on
the emphasis on repetitions comes from the experience of weight training of both the present and the past
it was found that sweat would occur regularly with bicep curls but not with the much more arduous squat
as we are looking to work up a sweat we are thinking lightish weights with fairly fast reps
the best sweat ever was playing squash
it took seven pints of fluids to quench the thirst !

first the time the pulse rose above 120
think it was because up until today most of the muscles being used were the lower-back muscles
at about the sixtieth rep i changed the movement so that most of the strain was taken up by the legs
the strain on the lower-back vanished without any noticeable strain occurring in the legs
the movement became next to effortless
bringing the legs into the movement caused the heart to work harder
is it anomalous that the reduced strain doing the movement would make the heart work harder ?

the pulse count is well within the target range of 120
having only one days rest has produced a noticeable growth the the forearms
three sets a week will it is known from experience bring about a sustained growth in muscle tissue
increasing the size of muscles is very easy to do
the problem is it's so easy to do that piling on the weights and upping the reps soon takes a person to the point of maximum size
there is a maximum size or amount of muscles a person can add to the skeletal frame
the consideration is an increase in size cannot be maintained indefinitely and will cause us to fail "to be growing the day we die"
the approach is to guage growth by understanding blood pressure and for that we need a thorough knowledge of the heart the heart - link 1 the heart link 2

that's two systolic readings in the 130's and both times it was i am reasonably sure due to cheese (had a level tablespoon of cheese with scrambled egg for breakfast)
will give cheese a miss until the next set of deadlifts and if the systolic pressure drops significantly will know definitely it's the cheese

105 x 105kg deadlifts - blood pressure 130/71 - 126/83
it took two days to figure out the odd blood pressure reading above (blood pressure was higher before exercises when it should have been higher after them - exercising used up the fat in the cheese !)
had been eating cheese and olives three four and five times a day without realising just how big a part cheese can have on the blood pressure
just as well the weight training and blood pressure readings were started again

to squat with a vertical back has meant going back to square one
it has meant going back to 20 kgs and doing an even shallower squat than the half squat
on the plus side it was immediately noticeable that the weak points came to the fore during the exercise and they were precisely those parts of the body that are at the root of the writers incapacity
it can be said again with a greater conviction the squat is to be seen as an exercise that "polices itself"
a diagnostic tool for identifying the weak link in the physiological chain
it will be educational to establish if it can be used in the diagnosis and prognosis of the heart

from the second half of this month the routine was changed from doing the seated military press to doing the standing military press
it wasn't noticed until the 26th what effects locking the knees would have
there was an ease and fluidity in the walking that was extremely noticeable
it's your life it's your health it's your longevity
experiment for best results
sometimes time it will produce a dramatically improvement in a persons condition
sometimes it will produce only minor improvements
other times it will go wrong and it will result in a backward step
whether good or bad make a note and pass them on so that others will benefit

it wasn't realized at the time that this routine was the same as the previous day's
within a few rep's of the first set a sluggish feel was evident
the last set of the military presses was a disappointment
as with the diet let the way you feel about something have significance in your evaluation of it
come to each day's routine feeling like you want do it
you should feel refreshed ready and eager to do your routine
in accordance with the endless evolutionary thrust of life the physiology has to keep growing and your desire to fit into that trend needs to reflect that
again if you are feeling sluggish or just don't want to do it something is wrong
as with the diet listen to what your body is saying
