Stop aging…from within!


After food, which is the most important thing, four things comprise good conformation:

1)Cardio-vascular exercise



4)Stretching (Yoga)


I choose running first. For me, it’s 5 miles every other day…a slow five miles, sometimes on hills.

Then swimming 20 laps at 25 yards/lap.

Then biking on the hills of the Presidio of San Francisco.


Push ups are my go to: 40 at a time, spaced throughout the day. It only takes 30 seconds. I try to do six to ten sessions per day.

Also , free weights:

115 pounds, 12 reps, 3 sets of curls
115 pounds, 12 reps, 3 sets of lifts
115 pounds, 12 reps, 3 sets of squats
Usually once a week

Endurance: any of the above…just longer than I did the previous times.

Flexibility: Old school yoga. No classes. Seven postures, over and over for 50 years.

There is a Fifth Element that becomes more of a concern when you get older…Balance:

For that I practice an open hand, Okinawan, style of Karate…Uechi Rye, focusing mainly on kicks.
