This is the workout for 10/6/2010.

Yep another sweaty day.

The fun started while people were trickling in…talking about how the last workout made them so sore.

Really interesting how some folks get sore a lot, some a little and some in completely different areas.

No rhyme or reason about  this stuff. Sure I guess I could make up a reason that sounded plausible but I don’t mind saying “I don’t know”. Matter of fact I say it much more often now than I ever did before.  And in the long run…it doesn’t matter.

Music: Rick Wakeman‘s Journey to the Center of the Earth. It was released in 1974 and actually sold 14 million copies! While an interesting piece we won’t be hearing it again at JONESERCISE.

T-Shirt: Facts You Need To Know About Chuck Norris.

First: We started the day off with some core/ab work using medicine balls  just to get the blood flowing.10 balls.

  1. Sit up, tap the ball side to side and over the head. 5 reps and pass the ball to the right.
  2. Seated Leg Raises with the ball overhead. 10 reps and pass the ball to the right.
  3. Lemon Squeezers with ball. 10 reps and pass the ball to the right.

Second: Squat Jumps. 10 sets of 10…yep, 100 reps.

Third: A “Super Set”. First the squats then the push ups. (Total reps: 100 single leg squats and 100 push ups.) 5 cycles of:

  1. Single Leg Squats 20 reps each leg
  2. Feet elevated Chair 1 leg push up 10 reps each leg

Fourth: More Core. We didn’t really need to do more but we did have a few more minutes to burn!

And the video:

And I thought Chuck Norris was a bad ass.

Enter Jack LaLanne.

In 1956 at the age of 42 he set a world record of 1,033 push-ups in 23 minutes.

In 1959 at the age 45 he did 1,000 jumping jacks and 1,000 chin-ups in 1 hour 22 minutes.

Freaking amazing! At any age. At any time!

Jack had an exercise show in the 60’s that was geared toward women.

At that time women were the ones at home. He preached a lot about the values of regular exercise and eating correctly.

Just think if everyone listened to him we would have less health problems today!

I remember some of his routines were done with a chair. So I decided to create a chair workout as a tribute to Jack LaLanne.

However this chair workout has a Jonesercise twist to it…it’s extremely intense.

The workout for 9/13/2010. Music: Probot. T-Shirt: Superman.

Chair workout: 14 Exercises, 4 cycles, 80 total sets, 1080 total reps.

  1. Incline Push-ups 15
  2. Decline Push-ups 15
  3. Triceps Dips 15
  4. Chair Burpees 10
  5. One Leg Squats 20
  6. One Leg Squats/Leg On Chair 20
  7. One Leg Hop On Chair 20
  8. Step-ups 10
  9. 90/90 Chair Crunches 15
  10. Hip Bridge 15
  11. Side Crunches 10
  12. Chair Squats 20
  13. Quick Leg Swings Chair 10
  14. Leg Raises 15

The first cycle wasn’t too bad. I actually was wondering if we would do this again. The second cycle was done faster than the first so it was more promising but still not too bad.

The last two cycles totally sucked! Talk about a body buster. It took a lot of physical and also mental strength to get through the last two!

And the video:

And for those who don’t remember Jack!

This is the workout for 5/10/2010.

After the past 4 workouts emphasizing the posterior chain of muscles I figured it was time to get back to some other things to shock the body…not that it doesn’t get shocked every workout!

There is no theory of evolution. Just a list of animals Chuck Norris allows to live.

Chuck Norris: Swimming

Posted: May 6, 2010 in Chuck Norris

Chuck Norris is expected to win gold in every swimming competition at the Olympics, even though Chuck Norris does not swim.

This is because when Chuck Norris enters the water, the water gets out of his way and Chuck Norris simply sprints across the pool floor.
