Oh I wish it were that easy. Though, I suppose with enough flexibility one person would be sufficient.

RE: Atheists who work out
I enjoy a workout I did in high school, which is called pyramids (you'll need a stop watch for these).

For example, I do a 20 step pyramid:

Steps 1-10 (15 minutes): do as many pushups as you can in 1 minute and rest for 30 seconds.

Steps 11-20 (7.5 minutes): do as many pushups as you can in 30 seconds and rest for 15 seconds. The total workout time is 22.5 minutes.

*The times in bold are the main workout intervals

*you can make these more challenging by varying the types of pushups you do (make sure you use good form) and/or doing lower body exercises during the rest periods (doing mountain climbers in between some pushup sets is very challenging); or, you could do the lower body exercises during the primary workout interval and then do pushups during the rest periods (or just be creative and make it more challenging in your own waySmile). If you choose to do exercises during the rest periods, then give yourself time to transition between exercises and be sure to pace yourself (do not over exert yourself, because you want the bulk of your effort to be applied toward the main workout intervals)

Pushups are a great exercise. I sometimes add them into my yoga practice.

RE: Atheists who work out
I love those yoga couple pics, jennybee. I do like working out with my fiance. He is naturally stronger, and just pushes me which is fun. (not always fun lol)

I like push ups, and honestly, BW exercises are really underrated. They're so many BW exercises that you can do if you can't afford a gym membership, or a weights set for your house, for example.

Had a healthy breakfast today, cranberry and almonds high protein hot oats. Yum! Cool

Be true to yourself. Heart

Heads up Jennybee! Here's a video of lady that is still teaching yoga at 96.





And the video is a couple years old. She's still teaching today at 98. The New York Times had an article about her today.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Love is good. I never believed that before, but it is. Maybe I just needed to meet the right one. Heart
