8 ‘more rare’ types of exercise you can do to ‘power your body’ and give the gift of good health to yourself, all year long!!!
1. Engage the martial arts.
Ever seen a movie with Jean Claude Van Damme, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris, or Jet Li and not been blown away entirely by their mad skill, wishing you could carry out the same motions in real life and look just as amazing? Well, these more secretive sports hold the secret. Kung fu, karate, tai chi, wing chun, taekwondo, or something else entirely ---- you have many options to choose from!
2. “PrayFit” with your hands and arms extended upwards.
Try the famous PrayFit challenge today. It will push you to grow both physically and spiritually, a program made for those with the faith to dare for the impossible! Find out more here.
3. Make all your regular motions under the water.
Try some squats, jumps, runs, stomps, punches or kicks. But do it all UNDERWATER. Challenge your regular fitness routine by taking it to a place where it’s further tested by less oxygen, more gravity, and reduced vision.
4. Try a “hobby sport” as your regular exercise routine.
Take golf or bowling, for instance, two wonderful sports that people don’t regularly think of when planning their fitness routines. Be unique in this approach. Bowl or golf every day, for instance, and give your mind and body a break from all that running and weight lifting you usually do.
5. Walk around the house with extra weights or clothes on.
Try exercising with something less than ideal or less than comfortable on your body. This’ll challenge you. But, of course, don’t overdo it. Begin with what you’re comfortable with and can endure, for a start….
6. Turn on the heater and practice yoga right in front of it.
Let your body sweat from two sources at once: an uncomfortably held posture and intense indoor heat.
7. Talk or laugh NON-STOP for an hour straight.
You’ve heard it said before ---- when you laugh or talk, you burn calories, and even more so when you scream or yell, of course. How do you think those boot camp drill sergeants keep their physique? And when positive thoughts power your words, and even your deepest belly laughs, great things happen for your health ---- try this if you want to lose weight, too, and you may see some results sooner than you expect. Laughter and mirth are two of the body’s natural healers, and so is verbal expression, as in “talking things out”!!!!
8. Exercise those facial muscles, the neck, the toes, and those many other parts so often disregarded through “traditional exercise”.
Mix it up: Don’t just workout those parts that everyone tends to give the most attention to, like the biceps, triceps, arms, forearms, abs, back, legs, shoulders, etc. Try to strengthen those smaller, more distinguished and hidden parts, for once, such as the feet and toes. Or how about the eyebrows and the face? These, for instance, you can do by making crazy faces in the mirror and holding them in position for a couple minutes at a time --- you’ll be surprised at how much this can strengthen the bones in your face, not to mention your resistance against a punch taken there!
