Reading a sports magazine my eyes
locked on to a double spread
showing a hockey player’s workout.
Never really had any interest in hockey
though I know it can be a killer workout
to be on skates for hours at a time.
Anyway, this player named Chris Chelios
who plays for the Red Wings is 45 years old.
But his trainer says, “He has the body of a 30 year-old.”
There is a huge spread
of different exercises he does.
The first photo is a blow out of him skipping
rope. Yes, dont think anyone calls him a sissie
for training with his jump rope.
The caption says, “Jump Rope, 50 revolutions builds endurance.”
Turns out he does sets of these with
no rest in between. Then he hops into the next exercise.
Then gets back on the rope.
Does it for an hour.
Now, you could spend an hour doing so but
you will never be asked to be on the ice for
3 hours or more.
You can do the same with ten to twenty minutes.
No rest between sets.
Just jump from one exercise to the next.
Though I dont recommend performing
every routine like this.
Important thing is to start moving. When you start,
you will be hard pressed to stop.
And with each revolution you’ll spin a few months
off your age. Imagine what will happen when you do this
on a consistent basis.
You’ll shave years off baby. Just like this 45 year old hockey player.
Go get ‘em, tiger.
