The Prison Workout: A Total Body Exercise Routine Some prison inmates have nothing but a sink, a toilet, their bed, and a few square feet of space at their disposal. They need an exercise routine that can be done in a confined space without equipment. The "Prison Workout," which was nicknamed by some people who saw prisoners without access to weights doing it, is designed to develop strength, endurance, speed, agility, and balance. It also produces gains in muscle, losses in body fat, and plenty of stamina. It is a total body and cardio workout. The Prison Workout consists of one classic exercise, the "burpee." This exercise works your chest, arms, front deltoids, thighs and abs. The burpee is a six-count exercise: 1) Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and your hands raised over your head. Then squat down and place your palms on the floor by your feet. 2) Kick both of your legs back so that you're in push-up position. 3) Bend your elbows and lower your body until your chest touches the floor. 4) Push yourself back up. 5) At the end of the push-up, quickly pull both knees into your chest while keeping your hands on the floor. You're jumping back into the squat position of step one. 6) Stand straight up by straightening your legs and throwing your hands in the air over your your head. You're now in the position that you started in. You can make the burpee more advanced and increase the explosive power in your legs by jumping into the air as you stand up. The Prison Workout is done in descending sets. For example, begin by doing 20 burpees without stopping. Rest 30 seconds, and then do 19 burpees without stopping. Rest 30 seconds and do 18 burpees. Continue doing descending sets until you get down to a final set of 1 burpee. That makes a total of 210 burpees. For most people, 20 sets will be too much to start with. In that case, pick a lower number of sets like 15 or 10 or even fewer for your first workout. Then add a set every 1-2 weeks until you reach your goal. In prison, doing 20 descending sets without stopping is the minimum to be considered a "man." If you can do 25 sets, you're considered to be pretty tough, and, if you can do 30 sets, you're considered a "stud." If you're doing other exercises in addition to this workout, do your burpee workout 3 times per week on cardio days. If some of you who've read this far are thinking to yourselves, "This Prison Workout is too easy. I'm looking for a man's workout," try one of these advanced variations of the basic burpee. 1) If you have access to pull-up bars, at step 6, jump up and do a pull-up. That will add 210 or more pull-ups to the workout. 2) Place dumbbells on the floor. Use the dumbbells as push-up bars for steps 1-5. At step 6, clean the dumbbells to your shoulders, press them overhead, and then set them back down for the next repetition. In other words, add an overhead press to each burpee. Be sure to use the solid, hexagonal dumbbells rather than the adjustable kind. By itself, the Prison Workout will strip fat from your body, add muscle, and build stamina. Alternate it with a weight training routine, and you may be mistaken for a Greek god, or, at least, for an ex-convict. If you can follow simple instructions, then you can build a HEALTHY, HIGH-PERFORMANCE, ATTRACTIVE body in the comfort of your own home using ONLY bodyweight exercises.

I haven't tried this diet however, I was watching the Tyra banks talk show the other day and the topic was Diet Wars. There were 3 teams of 2 people that were assigned a fitness person. The smash diet won. The 2 people lost a combined total of like 70lbs in a month. I say go for it and good luck. It seems to work!

Do a combination of strength training, cardio, and stretching. You might be old enough to start lifting weights, but you have to be sure you're using the proper form. The most important thing is to prevent injuries.Weightlifting injuries from improper form 20 years ago still haunt me each time I lift weights. There are some exercises I just can't do now because of it. Ask a gym teacher for help or see if your parents will let you have a session with a trainer. If those aren't options, look for videos with instructions on proper form. A good way to do strength training would be to use your own body weight as the others have suggested. Push ups, pull ups, squats, lunges, and plank will build muscle. You can also use resistance bands that you can get for about $10 at places like Ross and Marshall's. Don't work out just your upper body and forget about your legs. You'll look out of proportion with silly chicken legs. If you're overweight, you need to develop the large muscles in your lower body if you want to burn off the fat. Yoga is a good way to get an all-around workout. It's harder than it looks. My arms looked better from doing yoga than from lifting weights. It also helped me stand taller and made my skin clearer. You can get videos or find yoga workouts on the fitness channel. Don't forget about a healthy diet. Read "Disease Proof Your Child" by Dr. Joel Fuhrman.

1. 'How much homework do you get?' This varies. Some classes will give you more homework, others less. Also, if you are in an advanced program, you may receive more homework. 2. 'will i make new friends?' Of course you will! 3. 'how many classes are there?' This varies. 4. 'According to google maps it will take my 20 minutes to walk there' Ok... 5. 'Is secondary school good?' It depends on the person, and on the location. Each person has their own experiences. 6. 'I bought my schoolbag and my books will my bad be heavy?' It depends. You will have days where you might be carrying 20 pounds on your back, and other days where you will not even need your schoolbag. Most of the time, however, it shouldn't be too heavy.
