Exercise and good eating habits are a huge part of your sex drive and sex life. Many studies have been done regarding the different sex lives of active healthy people and inactive poor health people. This seems like it is all too obvious but many adults run to pills to help with a better sex drive and sometimes all they really need is to take better care of themselves. This will also make others more attracted to you. We all want to be considered pretty or handsome. For more great information and details read here.
HBO ( Home Box Office) has just started a new special that is so full of valuable health information I do not know where to begin. They are trying to help slow down and or stop our nations obesity epidemic. They have teamed up with some of the most health knowledgeable doctors and persons in our country to share information that could save our lives and our nation from the ever rising health cost. We are spending too much money on health care after we are sick and not enough on prevention and education.
Please read on with me while I post from this special or go to HBO.com and please watch the episodes yourself and begin your journey to a healthier you or family member. The more we know the more we can help ourselves.
Thank you HBO and all of the contributors to this very important message of health. We needed this.
To begin reading with me start here.
We have received the funnest email from a long time customer recently and I feel like sharing it with you. He is a delight to talk to and has also sent us some great photos, that his wife took, that I would also like to share. He looks great for any age.
Here are the emails……
You have any promotional use, quite aside from mere and exceedingly mild curiosity, in a pix of a naked-to-the-waist, firm and muscled (but not a body builder) 76-year-old male who credits 20 years of Soloflex usage three times a week for his appearance and, at last report, good health? That is I (me). If not, NO NEED TO REPLY. If yes, I will require my wife’s technological skills to take the pix on her irritating I-phone and transmit it on this infernal computer, so there would be some delay. I am David N. Mitchell, and I live in Santa Fe, N.M., and am very old. The question arose in my increasingly demented mind when I took off my t-shirt upon arising this morning, looked in the bathroom mirror and said to my 5-foot-9, 156-pound self, “self, that’s pretty good for a codger.” I then began my (your) machine workout, which took 90 minutes and still needs three sets of tricep effort to be complete.
all of which is far more than anybody making a living at Soloflex should have to read. So don’t, Oops, too late. Sorry. As the cliche has it, have a good day. I (we) must go to a neighborhood party this evening, a fate not to be wished, at least by me, and which precludes a nice day.
Courtesy of my amused but tolerant and skilled spouse, here are a couple of photos, taken today, Monday, of me at age 76. Looking at these, I realize that I am not remotely as lovely as I thought I was, and I will not be emotionally damaged if you and your fellow employees of Soloflex have a good laugh before destroying them and sending me a nice, thoughtful, courteous, well-meaning but in-the-end untrue thank- you note. I fear the dog, who was at my feet during this absurd posturing, did not show up in full fur, but he still looked a lot better than I do.
I noted to him in my email that we were most interested in his photos and so glad I did. I want to publicly thank Mr. Mitchell for taking the time to use the Soloflex and to share it with us. He is proof that if you use it you will not loose it. Exercising is the best medicine we can offer ourselves. Keep up the great work and enjoy your many years to come. Thank you wife too for her amazing photography skills.
Body by Soloflex Workout Fitness Junkies
Thirty years! That’s how long Soloflex has been making beautiful bodies. We have been hearing testimonials and receiving photos of Soloflex users for almost as long.
“I will be turning 50 in February (2009), and I’m still using the same Soloflex that I bought in 1981, when I was 22. I’ve updated the weight straps and added the butterfly and leg extension over the years, but the machine itself is still the same and it’s still going strong. One of the best products I’ve ever owned. Soloflex No. 21133″

In the beginning we wanted to bring the “gym” to everyone, for a price and size that fit in the corner of your home with quality unsurpassed. With the original Soloflex, we did just that, and continue to do so today.
Since Soloflex first began making fitness equipment thirty years ago, we have added a number of products to compliment and inspire your workouts. The Rockit, The Swimmer, Adjustable Hand Weights, and now the Whole Body Vibration Platform (WBV). All of these products were created with the same goal as the original Soloflex – get healthy, stay healthy.
All of our products build muscle, increase serotonin, relieve stress, and will help you leave a healthier life. The Soloflex WBV is also offering these opportunities to people who are recovering from injuries, suffer from physical limitations, and obesity. WBV stimulates the body’s stretch reflex and causes muscle contractions, forcing them to work even if you can not. The WBV works to enhance the workouts that you already have in place. This way, even the most physically fit can see the results of vibration training, and in just 1/3 of the time spent doing traditional weight training and stretching.
We here at Soloflex want to continue to hear from you and share your experiences with others. We can all inspire and help each other through conversation. Discuss workouts routines, motivations, experiences, or any thing you want to talk about. Everyone needs a little help now and then and together we can do just that. Do you have weight lifting questions, want to know some of the dos and don’ts in working out, Soloflex equipment questions, or wonder how to get to the next level of fitness? So many questions let’s get them out there. Send photos, drawings, what ever you want to share about yourself or Soloflex products and their effects on your life. Let’s Talk!
Any of the Soloflex products available for sale can be purchased at www.soloflex.com. You can speak to a trained sales representative by calling 1-800-547-8802, or contact us via email. If you would like more information about WBV, please visit The Soloflex website.
How Do I Build Muscle?
To Build Muscle: More Weight, Less Reps. Do 8-12 reps per set and do 3 sets….work to failure in the last set. Working to failure is very important. The muscles need to break down to be able to rebuild stronger and larger. Complete failure is when you can not move that last rep at all. You give it your all and you are just too fatigued.
To Tone Muscle: Less Weight, More Reps. 15-20 reps per set and do 3 to 4 sets. Do not worry about the failure, but you should feel like you have really worked the muscle and have really gotten a good strong workout.
To Cut: Train the Muscles to Become Longer/Leaner, Once Size Has Been Reached. Do high reps at lower weight. Perform a Tone Program. Eat a low fat diet. This is very important.
How To Work The Inner Leg and Outer Leg: On any exercise point the toes in to work the Outer Leg and point the toes out to work the Inner Leg.
How Do I Best Target The Lower Abdominal Muscles: The exercises that best target the lower abdominal muscles are…the Body Curl, the Bent Knee Raise, the Leg Bend and the Incline Sit-Up. The more the incline on the bench the lower you will target.
What Is The Proper Order Of Muscle Workout: Always work the larger muscle group before a smaller one. Example – Work the entire back (lats) before doing a bicep curl. Otherwise, the muscle will already be somewhat fatigued and will not perform to its fullest capacity. Working the larger muscle groups is best also if you are very limited in your time to workout. These are the most important to start with. If you do have the time it is important to add the smaller muscle groups. You do not want to forget them.
Should I workout Everyday: Rotate muscle groups. Work lower body one day and upper body the next day. Do not work the same muscle group two days in row. The muscles will not have time to rebuild and gain strength. This rule does not include the abdominal muscles. You can perform one long set everyday if you would like to.
Hope this helps. Keep asking the questions and we will try to answer them.
