Best Body Weight Exercises

Bodyweight Exercise Pushup with Dog Added

Bodyweight Exercises Are Among The Best You Can Do

And one of the best bodyweight exercises is the pushup, exercising as it does the entire upper body, including shoulders, pectorals, biceps, triceps and lats. Even your abs get a workout from holding your core firm while you raise and lower your body.

Most people can do a few pushups but even if you can only do one, you can do 50 or even 100. All you need is a plan to follow.

Cycling For Your Health

Cycling for Health and Fitness

Cycling and Your Health

One of the best investments you can make for your health and fitness is to get a bicycle and start cycling for your health.

The old saying "it's like riding a bicycle, you never forget how" is certainly true. Most people learn to ride a bike as young children. It seems incredibly difficult and then suddenly, it's not any more. And you never forget how.

Even if as an adult, you haven't ridden for years, get on a bike and it all comes back to you.

About Me


Welcome to your Best Health Blueprint. Here you will find many, many resources to help you achieve a fit, healthy and enjoyable lifestyle.

At 76, I weigh the same as I did when I was an 18 year old athlete at school, almost 60 years ago. I weigh 68 kg or 150 lb and still have the same 77 cm or 30 in waist. My BMI is 22.5.

I can bench press 80 kg or 176 lb, which is a fair bit more than my own body weight. I can hold a 5 minute plank and do one hundred and ten pushups in one go.

I enjoy 100 km or 62.5 mile bike rides for fun. I can generally out sprint and out climb cyclists half my age.

The only reason I have a doctor is that I needed her name for completing some online forms. Otherwise, I don't go to a doctor because I never get sick. Literally. No colds, no flu, no tummy upsets.

I take no drugs, prescribed or over the counter.

My mother lived to 102, and then decided that she didn't need to live any longer and passed away peacefully in her sleep. There was no specific cause of death.

These are my qualifications to advise anyone on how they can stay fit and healthy as they age and to hear that wonderful statement from others "OMG, you can't really be 76 (or whatever)."
