a seminar put on by someone he referred to as a “reputable
At said seminar, Jason learned some interesting “facts” about exercise.
These “facts” were as follows:
Anaerobic training causes:
low blood sugar,
fat metabolism problems,
depression & anxiety,
and creates excess acid.
Aerobic training (or cardio) however,
supposedly has the following benefits:
increased oxygen supply
good for heart
improvements emotionally and mentally.
At this seminar the point of view puts across is that aerobic
exercise builds health, anaerobic builds muscle.
In a nutshell, the advice Jason received at this seminar was
practically worthless. Here’s why:
1. If you think you only increase oxygen supply through
distance “aerobics” – then you ain’t never felt the air
pumping in and out of your lungs after a hill sprint or a
good set of Hindu Pushups or squats – not to mention
burpees, Hindu jumper squats and so on.
2. Although commonly believed, cardio exercise done
for long periods of time does NOT improve the heart.
I’m not saying you should never do it. It can reduce
stress – and it can be challenging and fun. But make
no mistake about it, people keel over and die while
running marathons. What does that tell you? It is far
more stress than the heart needs and the heart doesn’t
really like it. I prefer to look at the organs the way the
Chinese Taoists do – and in their book, distance running
would literally overheat and “COOK” the internal organs.
Moreover, distance runners or those who do tons of
aerobics, age much faster than those who do strength
training exercises like Combat Conditioning. Show me
a marathon runner and I’ll show you someone who
is aging far too fast. Their free radical damage levels
are always on RED ALERT – and funny thing is, these
athletes think that because they’re “in shape” – that
those free radicals don’t hurt them. Think again, budding
3. Regarding injuries – have you ever heard of hip
replacement surgery. Very common amongst distance
runners. Not to mention bad backs, knees, ankles – as
well as faces that resemble an over-dried prune.
4. As for better sleep and digestion – that’s a crock, too.
You can do some deep breathing exercises in a chair and
improve digestion and sleep far more than pounding the
5. Regarding depression – All you have to do to end depression is
hold a bridge for a minute or so. You’ll be so euphoric
afterward you’ll feel like no problems exist. This one exercise
can save you 59 minutes of pavement pounding, which is
about what you need to get your “runner’s high.”
6. Last of all, how stupid to say that aerobics are for health and
anaerobics are for muscle. Sprints improve the heart big time, and
fast. And I know of no faster exercise for dropping the resting pulse
than Hindu Squats. With the health benefits, er, not – of aerobics, I’ll
take the muscle you get from the so-called “anaerobics.”
This afternoon I ran for time with the Lifeline Sprint Trainer –
available at http://www.lifelineusa.com – connected to my wrists
and ankles. Each jaunt lasted about 20-30 seconds. Did five of them.
Whooped my butt and my heart into better shape. Mixed them in with some
pushups, chin-ups and rope climbing. I was panting like a dog in heat. Sounds
to me like I was getting MORE oxygen than the long-distance runner. Not
only that, but afterward, I slept like a log.
And just think, now I’ll probably be depressed because I didn’t
waste an hour in the sun pounding the pavement. Shucks.

P.S. One last thing: I realize that some people don’t want to enroll for a full year. They’d rather ‘test-drive’ the program for a month to see if they like it. Tis fine with me – for another day or two. So I’m also having a special ‘test-drive’ enrollment – and you can read all about the benefits by going to http://www.mattfurey.com/fg324trfsr3ttai.html
