It seems illogical at first. We think that hours and
hours per day are needed to get fit. Yet this is only
true if you want it to be true.
Personally, I enjoy going for long walks and hikes.
I like to train in kung fu and grappling for an hour
or more. But this fact does nothing but scare your
average coach potato deeper into his seat.
He’s got hours per day before the idiot box – and he’ll
swear he’s too busy to do this that and the other. Yet
how’d he find so much time to keep up on worldly
events but still “no time” to keep up with his own body.
Strange, but true.
This is why it’s important to lure the average person
out of his chair with one minute of exercise – even
better is five minutes.
The skeptical may think this is not enough time to
change the course of your life – yet it most certainly
Give me someone glued to the couch or the computer
for five minutes and I’ll change the person’s life. I’ll
have him huffing and puffing. I’ll have sweat pouring down
his face. And when the first session is done and over the
person will SMILE, laugh and thank me for the torture.
I’ll be giving him what he wants deep inside. A thorough
and complete arse kicking.
How can this be done in five minutes. Simple.
First, we start with Hindu Pushups. If you’re a slug, seal or
whale I bet you can’t do 10 – much less five. And I don’t
care how tough you were in high school. That doesn’t
count NOW. So your first exercise will be over in about
30 seconds – one minute at most.
Second, I’ll have you do Hindu squats. If you’re a stud and
able to push 400 pounds or more with barbell squats, I’ll
watch you quit around 40-50 reps. This will take less than
a minute. If you’re a banana slug, well, you’ll drop out at
10-20 reps. About 30 seconds.
At this point I’m being generous with the five minutes. Your
hide is nearly tanned and we still have to do the bridge.
Even if you’re an expert in mind power, I’ll bet on you only
making it for a minute on this one. And at the end of this
minute you’ll lie on your back staring at the ceiling without
a thought or care in the world.
For some strange reason you’ll feel more relaxed than ever
before. And you’ll feel this even though you’ve just put
yourself through 2-3 minutes of vigorous exercises.
You’ll lie there on your back breathing deeply, feeling a
sense of calmness and serenity. This will last three minutes
The next day when you arise you’ll look in the mirror and
wonder if it’s your imagination or not. Are you truly seeing
changes and FEELING changes this quickly – or are you
simply imagining them.
After three weeks you’ll definitely know you’re not
imagining anything – except how much better you’re
going to continue feeling if you stick with this Combat
