Hey everyone, Bodie here again. Hope you are all enjoying my sports and fitness blog as much as I am enjoying writing it. I was talking with a friend of mine earlier who works away from home for weeks at a time, and as such he hasn’t been able to hit the gym at all in the past 4 months. Add that with the normal on the road diet of cheeseburgers and gas station fruit and you have a recipe for a fairly unhealthy life. Lucky for him( and any of you in a similar situation) I love working out and being fit, and as such have found a good regime to get yourself in shape or at least healthier when you are extremely busy and don’t have the time for proper workouts.

Some time last year, I was travelling around the world and was on a boat with this group of people for about two weeks, just us . One of these people was an aging ex-marine that shared some pretty good tips with me. This guy must have been almost 60 years old, but looked better than me at 22! When we talked about workouts, he told me his regime and I have to say it blew me away. This man would wake up every morning for the last 20 years and do 1000 push ups, then 1000 sit ups. You are probably thinking that’s impossible, and it almost is. I am a fairly healthy young man, and when I tried this I could only get to 128 push ups the first day. However when I did this for a week, I was able to get up to 150 by the end and then to 200 by the next week. I do this every day when I wake up and it is perfect when I am travelling or working long hours. Try it yourself, tomorrow morning when you wake up before turning on the coffee do as many push ups and sit ups as you can, and then again the next day. The results may surprise you! See you later guys!
