Alternative to jogging

January 11, 2007 4 comments

For the past few days, I couldn’t go jogging in the morning due to the rain. So I skipped exercising.

Until today, when I thought that I couldn’t continue missing out on the exercise, lest my body back slides on its conditioning. So I slipped on the exercising gear again, and started my warm-ups even though the sky was grey. Alas, the sky decided to pour down its woes again.

That was when I realised the alternative to jogging. I did the stairs mastering! I found out that climbing stairs is a tougher exercise than jogging! After 5 floors, I was panting, my head was spinning and my legs were turning into jello. Climbing stairs seem to using a different group of muscles from jogging. Climbing down the stairs uses another different group. My legs didn’t feel so jello-like since I last climbed the Great Wall of China.

So there you have it. An alternative to jogging, which can cater to at least 75% of high-rise dwelling Singaporeans, come rain or shine. No more excuses! One day, Singaporeans’ butts will be able to rival the Brazilians!

Removing 3 inches from your waistline with only 1.25cm

Yes, you still need to eat right and exercise regularly.

But here’s the encouragement booster the mathematical way.

Do you know that you can remove 3 inches from your waistline by exercising away only 1.25cm skin deep of fat?  You see, a depth of 1.25 cm is equal to 1 inch out of the diameter of your waist.  Using the πd formula to calculate the circumference of a circle, you get 3.14 inches.

1.25cm of fat doesn’t seem to be impossible now, right? 🙂
