Elegant Exercise is Simple and Refined, Using Minimal Equipment and Dressing for Success
Sprinting on a mini-trampoline is my current elegant exercise routine. I have found that it is much more effective than just bouncing up and down. Taking high, alternating steps at a fast pace for as long as I can, lifting the knees as much as possible, is quite strenuous and gets the heart pumping. I sometimes sprint three times a day. Using the mini-trampoline for sprints lets you do it without creating deleterious impact on joints and feet. The Gold’s Gym mini-trampoline is available for about forty USD. See my 2010 article, “Try Rebounding…,” reprinted below for more information.
Dressing for exercise means skipping the low-waisted tights and sweats, and instead wearing garments that fit snugly at the waist–that area which was designed to keep your trousers and skirts up, which is located at an inch or two above your navel. This traditional style of clothing prevents you having to stop and hitch-up your pants while walking, running and jumping….
Dr. Joseph Mercola has a new post at his blog about an almost-forgotten exercise that you can do without equipment, and which not only strengthens your legs, but is beneficial for other parts of the body, including the “core”. LINK to Dr. Mercola’s article, complete with a video demonstrating how to do “squats.”
