Ten and Maintenance
what you went through, and then,
da end !?
Primarily, this is an excellent
regime because it is done without equipment. There were no fitness clubs to
waste your money on in those days. All you need is desire and enough room to
wave your arms.
To begin, it might be better to try week one, and if
that's too easy go to the next week's exercises on day two. Proceed
until you reach a week that is hard for you, and start there with
the seven days for that particular week. You might note that Week
Four is a big jump from Week Three.
DO NOT use the sit-up exercise noted in the
exercises: replace with the crunch from the
Steely Abs page.
Do the hundred plus that
is recommended either before or after the Commando routine. You should be able
to add 25 crunches every week, at a minimum.
Of course, the sit-up
exercise in the ten week regimen can be used, should you wish, but
it becomes really difficult to do properly, and it hurts! I have
done the sit-ups both ways. Can't say which I prefer.
You can, otherwise, use the modern sit up style, bent
you wish, you pussy, you! But, because you're fat, that's why your wife went
berserk. Of course, in this modern age, it could have been your same sex
spouse!!! A healthy mind in a healthy body? Naturally, and this is
my hippo is increasing in size!
What you went through
This is what the text is in the image to the left.
Remember, this is from 1972, so don't bother sending 60p in; they
might think there is something odd going on!
Keep fit - it's easy
The Royal Marine
Commando exercises that appeared in Look! have attracted impressive
acknowledgement from the sporting world.
We hear from Tyne
Tees Television, who commissioned the routines from the Commandos
and made them available to The Sunday Times, that one of the
football teams in Tyne Tees region, Hartlepool's, took them up after
a disastrous run of losses.
Len Ashurst, the player-manager,
actually called the Marines to put his men through their paces. The
Commandos don't like to boast, but last week Hartlepools had lost
only four of their last 15 matches. Whether to take on a Commando as
a full-time trainer is now being considered.
We also hear
that Vernon Stratton, the Olympic yachting team's manager, has asked
for the full Commando exercise instructions to give to every skipper
and crew. Stratton says he and their coach have tried the exercises
themselves and are mightily impressed.
The Sunday Times
wallchart of Commando exercises will soon be available. It is
arranged to achieve three different levels of fitness, according to
your needs and ambitions, and at roughly two feet by three will fit
nicely on the bedroom door as a permanent reminder of the ten
minutes daily work-out we owe our bodies.
It costs 60p,
including posting and packing, which is cheap enough for a healthy
life. Make your cheque out to Times Newspapers Limited and send it
to Commando Wall Chart, The Sunday Times, 12, Coley Street, London,
WC30 9YT. Early orders will secure the first charts off the presses,
but we must ask you to allow up to a month for delivery.
