00:02 The following program is designed to demonstrate
00:04 simple workouts that you can use to improve
00:06 your health. Be sure to consult your physician
00:10 before beginning any exercise program.
00:14 It is the goal of this exercise program to try and
00:16 give specific workouts for various areas. Today we're
00:19 going to try and do one specifically for men!
00:21 Stay tuned next for Body and Spirit Aerobics.
00:53 Hello! I'm Dick Nunez, Wellness Director of
00:55 the Black Hills Health and Education Center.
00:57 Welcome to Body and Spirit Aerobics.
00:59 Today we are going to focus-in on training
01:00 for men. Not that is not good for women as well,
01:03 but both genres have specific areas that they
01:05 like to focusing on. So, that's we are gonna to do
01:07 today. I believe we are ready to get started.
01:10 Helping me out today will be Matthew Hard and
01:12 Fred Garber. Let's get started with a little warm

01:54 okay. If you need it do them off your knees,
01:56 that's okay as well, in fact let's do that here.

08:31 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. Alright, alright,
08:46 let's start stepping lightly and start getting
08:48 loosened-up here, into our aerobic training.
08:58 One thing I found here, working with men they don't
09:01 wanna get too technical when it comes to what
09:04 they do aerobically so we are gonna keep it pretty
09:06 simple. Now, what we are going to do is that we
09:21 are gonna start picking our knees up high up,
09:23 and up, up, up, up, up, up, up good. And left,
09:46 right, left, right, left, right, left, right, left,
09:53 right, left, right, left,
09:55 right, left, right, keep that
09:59 up good job. We look like a bunch of drunk majors.
10:09 And left, right, left, right,
10:11 left, right, left, right,
10:15 left, right, left, right, good going, left, right,
10:32 left, right, left, right, left good, 15 more seconds.
10:53 Okay, let's do start it out now. One of the
11:05 reasons why you see men stop exercise as they try
11:10 and push too hard too fast so you want to keep
11:14 things at your own pace. Better off start a little
11:18 more simple and stay with it, rather then going too
11:22 hard, burning yourself out. Most men at one time,
11:27 have an athletic test or in the military and so they
11:32 remember the days of being very fit. It will only
11:36 take 72 hours for muscles to start to atrophy.
11:43 So, we have to keep that in mind.
11:51 So, whenever it will happening is that get
11:53 frustrated that they can't keep up with where they
11:56 once were or they hurt themselves because they
12:01 are trying to go too fast, too quickly. Okay,
12:11 we are going to hit this for 40 more seconds,
12:14 then we are going to do our transition.
12:23 And 30, and 20, and 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.
12:53 Squat position, okay start squatting down, and up,
12:58 and down, and up, down, and up, down, and up.
13:04 Keep it going one of the areas that men till not
13:08 to work on is their gluteus maximus, but they
13:11 think that's more of a woman saying that they
13:14 should work on. But, the reality is the gluteus
13:17 maximus is the biggest, strongest muscle area in
13:20 the body. And if you lose that, it looks like
13:23 somebody has left the air out of the back side and
13:26 it's just nothing there you lose the curvature of
13:29 your spine, and you lose all that strength back
13:31 there so it's not unusual for women to complain:
13:35 My husband he has no back side it's just straight
13:38 up and down. It's not what you want God made
13:40 us to have a curvature there. And those gluteus
13:42 maximus muscles should stay strong. If you look
13:45 at the top athletes of the day especially those who
13:47 are very good at running and jumping they all
13:49 have very well developed gluteus maximus muscles.
13:52 So, the squats are one of the best things you can
13:54 do for the gluteus maximus area, so even
13:57 though you might not like them it can be very
13:59 difficult, but the reality is they're great exercise.
14:03 As you can see Fred over here going up and down
14:07 without any problem at all. And that great hair
14:13 has been earned from a few years of life.
14:15 And still, he does it very easily but don't think I'm
14:18 giving you any bad time Fred, any full head looks
14:20 good to me. Okay and over here, Matt is doing his
14:24 squats just fine as well. It going, keep it going we
14:28 gonna try and do those for 20 more seconds even
14:32 though we are taking a break from this running is
14:35 squatting is still keeping the legs moving and
14:37 keeping the blood circulating and the oxygen
14:39 pumping through the body. Good, good keep it up,
14:46 But, actually this is more of an intensive part of
14:48 the aerobic training and we will require a little bit
14:51 of a cool down once we get through it. Now down
14:53 and hold, hold, hold, hold good. And hold that for
14:58 1 minute. This is like some what doing a false
15:02 chair. This is wanna get really strong legs if you
15:05 have you dinner like this or have your lunch like
15:08 this or eat your meals or read your books this way.
15:10 You'll get really strong legs with, within no time.
15:13 It's important to keep your chest up, there we go,
15:16 that's better Matt. Good job, alright we're down to
15:21 30 more seconds fellows. You're doing great.
15:28 You're respiration is starting to increase.
15:30 That's good, that's what we're after. Now we're
15:36 down to our last 15 seconds, again there down to
15:42 the last 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Okay, let's
15:53 do some side steps, just to get those legs loosened
15:57 up side to side, real gently.
16:07 We want to give the
16:08 respiration a chance to stabilize. We don't want
16:11 the heart to get up too high that's an important
16:14 thing. You might want to check you're pulse rate
16:16 do it off your wrist or off the temple area.
16:19 Don't go grabbing your throat, if you don't know
16:21 where your carotid artery is. You may make
16:24 yourself pass out. Also, there's an automatic
16:27 response to the brain whenever you're putting
16:28 pressure on the carotid artery
16:30 it's telling the heart
16:31 to slow down, because it's picking up pressure on
16:33 that very important artery going up to your brain.
16:39 Good keep going. Let's try and lengthen stride a
16:46 little bit. Lengthen it out. And we are going to go
16:54 for one more minute here. Step away out.
17:03 We're in the midst of our aerobic training now.
17:08 Hopefully, if you're getting fit, the fatty acids are
17:12 starting to be metabolized as your body tries to
17:14 conserve the glucose, which is needed for your
17:17 brain at all times. In case you don't know what
17:19 glucose is that's simply just blood sugar. Way out,
17:24 step out, step out, good, step out. Twenty seconds,
17:38 good. And 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Alright find your jump
17:53 ropes and go. Okay, start jumping go. Now, here on
17:58 the set we don't actually have jump ropes.
18:01 But, you can still get the arm action of the jump
18:03 rope going. And like I say all the time this is the
18:07 best way doing because you never miss.
18:09 You never whip yourself in the back of the head
18:12 or stumble if you keep jumping and keep jumping
18:15 and keep jumping. Good, good, good, good.
18:21 The rope is getting a little loose the Matt here we
18:24 go. Okay 20 more seconds. And 15 seconds,
18:43 and 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Step it out.
19:04 Okay, 45 more seconds of this. But, coming
19:08 towards end of our aerobic training but we
19:11 still need the intensive part of it and then we will
19:13 go into our cool down phase. And we're down
19:32 to 20 seconds, 15. Okay, Fred your jump ropes one
19:52 more time go. We gonna do one more minute of
19:58 jumping rope and then we start into our cool down
20:03 good, excellent. 45 seconds. Good job Fred you're
20:12 looking good. All those years of practice are
20:14 paying off. 35 seconds, and 30, 25, 20.
20:38 Down on the last 15. Good job, good job fellows,
20:40 good job. Okay step it out, not too fast. Let's slow
20:57 down just a little bit. We need to start slowing to
20:59 heart down. We don't want to just stop something
21:06 like we are sewing abruptly, because that's when
21:09 you put a lot of pressure on your heart.
21:11 You're telling it to keep moving blood throughout
21:14 the body, back up, and you loose the legs,
21:18 which will help that venous blood return.
21:20 You make it so your heart doesn't the work quite
21:22 so hard. Okay slow it down a little more. Make it
21:29 casual now, good, now on to 20 seconds,
21:48 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Now we are going to do some just
21:52 easy side to slide to finish our cool-down.
21:57 Go for one minute here. Good, nice and relaxed.
22:22 And 30 seconds, and down to our last 20, and 15,
22:42 and 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Okay go and lay on
22:52 your backs. Head up this way, hands behind your
22:58 neck. Ok, and I want you to crunch up real slow
23:02 and just hold it, up, hold now down. And up,
23:08 and hold it, and down, up hold and down, up hold
23:26 and down, up, hold, down, up, hold, down, up,
23:36 and hold, down, up, hold it, down, up, and hold,
23:45 down, up, hold, down, up, and hold, down, up,
23:54 and hold, down, up, hold, down, up, hold, down,
24:03 up, and hold, down, up, hold, down, and ten more:
24:09 Up, down. There is 1, up, down, there is 2, up,
24:17 down 3, up, down, there is 4, up, down, there is 5,
24:25 up, down 6, up, down7, up, down 8, up, down 9,
24:36 up, down 10. Ok, up on your hands and knees,
24:41 heads facing towards the front. I would like you to
24:45 put your left arm out straight and your right leg
24:49 out straight, and just hold that steady. What we
24:53 just did it some abdominal exercises.
24:56 That's always an area were men are really
24:57 concerned about, because they carry excess body
25:00 fat in their abdominal wall. Now, there is no
25:02 magic way of losing your abdominal fat.
25:06 You have to develop muscle, you have to lose
25:08 fat. They are not interchangeable. You can
25:10 not form up fat. They're not is just not going to
25:13 happen. Nor can you take muscle and turn it into
25:17 fat. That is a misconception. If you stop
25:20 working out, you shrink simple as that.
25:24 Unless you're eating too much and you get fat.
25:26 But, you can not take fat on your belly and put it
25:29 up on your chest. It doesn't work I hear a lot
25:32 of men say that I want to take this and stick it up
25:34 here. That's a ludicrous thought and it can't
25:38 happen. There we are going to hold that I haven't
25:40 forgot you, guys don't worry. For 10 more
25:42 seconds, this is an excellent one for the lower
25:45 back, which it's also something a lot of men
25:47 fight and again the gluteus maximus has
25:50 something to do with that. Okay, fellows let's switch
25:52 over put your right arm up and the left leg back.
25:57 The gluteus maximus helps to keep you strong
25:59 in that lower back area and this is an excellent one
26:01 as well. I encourages using your contractor
26:04 gluteus maximus and also makes you stabilized by
26:08 holding with your back. It's an excellent one to
26:10 prevent back injuries or if you are coming upper back
26:12 injury it doesn't take keep there any
26:14 motion for say. It's just is a nice steady hold and
26:18 makes you work your back. Hang on, we're down
26:22 to the last 30 seconds. Hang in there Matt you're
26:27 doing good. And we're down to our last 20.
26:34 You'll find that one side is little more comfortable
26:36 than the other and that's not unusual. Down to 15,
26:42 and 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Ok, up on your feet.
26:55 Let's finish off with some trunk turns, good.
27:11 And let's go five more each way. There is 2, 3, 4,
27:26 5 good job fellows well done. Men, keep training
27:31 don't give up. And do it for the right reason.
27:33 If you have faith in God, it makes it so much
27:35 easier because you depend on Him. And you're
27:37 doing it for His glory, not for your own.
27:40 And claim the promises of God. My favorite one
27:42 to claim, when it comes to working out is
27:44 Philippians 4:13, which says I can do all things
27:47 not some things but all things to Christ,
27:49 who through strengthens me. Good bless
27:51 you we see you next time.
