Betty asks…

What’s a good workout program for muscle growth, and a acne treatment that works?

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.
For acne, go to a dermatologist, the doctor will take a scrab, determine what kind of infection you have and will prescribe you antibiotics.

How to get rid of acne and blackheads with home remides?

What are some good home remides for getting rid of black heads and acne?

admin answers:

THIS WORKS FAST & CHEAP!!!
I used Tetracyclin, Proactive, Retina A and had many expensive facials with less than good results.
This has worked for me and many many other happy people.

Go to pharm.,Drug store, or Walmart, buy “PURPOSE” bar of soap – Blue box – Made by Johnson & Johnson – wash your face with this
2-3x’s per day. Also pick up a LOW strength Benzoyl-peroxide cream, apply the cream by dabbing
to the individual blemishes…. DONT rub it in works using a oxidation/reduction reaction..It will unclog
dry it out and bring it to a head…DONT over use this or put anywhere else on your face. It will cause drying and make you look worse.

Salicylates such as found in regular asprin among other products work very similar but also remove layers of skin…
Other over the counter creams with this product will dry out pimples but maybe too hash and cause surrounding skin trauma..
I have seen many people recommending crushing asprin and making a paste which probably will dry out the blemish but again
pretty strong and probably will cause more tissue damage and bigger scars as an anti inflammatory
probably would take the reddness out… Again pretty harsh for sensative skin.

Also, If need which probably will for moisture ASK FOR “NUTRADERM lotion” – the orginal not the new stuff, this works
great and wont clog pores or leave a residue on your skin…Any lotion that is completely oil free and hypoallergic should
work but again I recommend Nutraderm. I have heard from people online that “Purpose” also makes a lotion that is good, Nutragena, and Nivea
make good products also. I recommend Nutraderm from experience and my dematologist.

“Purpose Bar” & “Nutraderm” are oil free and hypoallergic they contain no perfumes and are great for both men and women.
I have also heard great reports of this soap helping improve skin tone. Some people recommend the “Purpose luqid soap” saying
that the bar did dry out their skin some. The rational behind using the bar is that there are no ingredients in it that will clog pores, and
according to dermatologists they recommend the Bar. I have also heard good responses from “cetaphil soap”. These products are safe for all skin colors and tones. I highly discourage use
of Proactive and other harsh chemicals for people with some natural color in their face due to the bleaching and drying effect it has
shown in many many people.

Additonal TIPS: acne, pimples, etc are frequently cause by a bacteria or hormone issues that cause clogging of pores.
DONT PICK POP POKE (your hands are the dirtiest part of your body) and will cause: infections, spreading of germs, more breakouts and scarring
DONT EVER listen to people online who tell you to scrub your sensative skin or use harsh chemicals
such as: Lemon juice, vinagar, alcohol, etc… DONT EVER use that APRICOT CRAP!!! DONT USE
PROACTIVE- this is expensive and harsh it may kill the bacteria cause also Benzoyl based wash but
will irritate skin and cause bleaching of face and neck…. Other similar treatments may work.. Also
things such as Accutane but have SERIOUS side effects such as Major Depression, & birth defects in unborn children, among others
If you wear make up make sure it is oil free, & hypoallergic…Eating healthy…Drinking plenty of water.. Changing pillow cases freq.
Etc …avoiding dirty sports equp. Such as helmets…can not hurt…Acne/pimples again are caused by pores/hair follicles becoming plugged
up, this plugging then causes an inflammatory reaction – reddness and infection (pimple)..black head is dirt trapped in pore, while a white
head is the same thing you just dont see the dirt instead you see white pus (lymphocytes that accumulate in the area to fight the infection)
It has been shown in many studies this most often not caused by what you eat (chocolate etc… Or how clean you are) but most often by either excess oils plugging pores or a bacteria
on the skins surface. – Proactive works in some people because it is a strong Benzoyl peroxide based washed but is most freq. To strong
for people with sensative skin – this is why alot of people get excessive drying and flaking, rashes, bleaching or breakouts from the product.
Retina-A does decrease the bacterial growth on your face but also removes dead/living skin, this can work well in some individuals and
has been shown to reduce wrinkles and scars but again I feel this is pretty harsh on sensative skin prone to breakouts. If you choose
Retina-A never use this product during the day only at night due to the sensativity it will give you to the sun. You must also get a perscription
for this product and I really don’t believe it is worth the damage it does to your skin. In some rare cases for very deep/large boils and cyst types
of pimples oral antibiotics maybe needed but I would first recommend trying “purpose” and a low dose “benzoyl-peroxide cream” along with a good
oil free moisturizer “Nutraderm… Etc” this does work well.

THIS WORKS FAST AND CHEAP!!! I no longer get expensive facials, take oral antibiotics, or even NEED makeup… I am very happy – Have
very good skin… And have many many other happy friends… THANKS again to my WONDERFUL
DERMATOLOGIST… TRY THIS!! GOOD LUCK…. PS. “PURPOSE” costs about $3 ———————————————

Lisa asks…

How big of an effect does acne have?

Not gonna lie. I have pretty bad acne. My brother has it really bad too. So did my dad. Does it really have that big of an effect on someone’s looks? I mean. I always think I’m hideous cuz of it. But I still pick up really hot chicks. Not trying to brag. I get all kinds of “hey cutie” kinda things. So is it really a big deal?

admin answers:

To understand this, you gotta first understand what’s sexy. Do you know what is said to be the sexiest trait by both men and women alike?

Nope. It’s not your eyes. It’s not your lips. It’s not your skin. Not that booty. Or even your muscles… Give up?

Confidence! Confidence is hands down the sexiest trait anyone can have. If you are confident with yourself and have a loving self-image, then people will take notice and more likely look past any skin condition and see you for you and who you are.

If things are not a big deal to you, they won’t be a big deal to people. Think about it.. If you were completely comfortable, confident, and all smiles as you were dancing on stage in your underwear.. People would clap, people would laugh, and people would be positive.. Hell, you might even get some phone #’s out of it. – Trust me, I have. It works :P

But similarly, the opposite is true; if something is a big deal to you.. People can read that and it WILL be a big deal to them.

Think about this.. What would happen if you were way nervous and about to perform a dance you’ve been working on for months straight.. Your knees are shaking, your hands are sweaty, and you are panicking as you look into the sea of people in the crowd as they stare back at you.. What happens if right then, the music stops and your pants fell down to your ankles?!

Well, most people at this point would be embarrassed, shocked, frightened, and would quickly pick up their pants and run offstage with their head down.. The audience would laugh AT HIM, and make fun of that kid for the rest of the year.
Because whether they consciously realized it or not.. They just realized how embarrassing this was to him and that it WAS a big deal.

Now flip that. What if the music stops, his pants fell down, and instead of being embarrassed he decided to go with it and have fun? Instead he acts like it is all part of the act.. He not only kicks his pants off, but then rips his shirt off, swings it around his head and dances like Napolean Dynomite.

Trust me, if you were willing to do that.. The ladies would flock to you! ;)

Here’s the thing.

While it sounds like you have some confidence and get some attention from the ladies.. Which is great!

Your acne IS A BIG DEAL. IT’S A HUGGGGE DEAL!
Why? Because you made it a big deal. The fact that you asked shows you have doubts, concerns and are hoping to get comforted by people on here.

As if that’s not bad enough you said ‘I always think I’m hideous’ … That deeply hurts your self-image, self-worth, and confidence. I promise you that if that thought ever goes through you head in a day that EVERYONE you know sees it too. Whether you realize it or not, they can tell you think that about yourself.. You put out a ‘vibe’ without even knowing.

But here’s the good news. There’s hope! Instead of trying to lie to yourself and tell yourself that it’s not a big deal, that it doesn’t bother you, and getting yourself to come to grips with it.. And accept that it’s who you are.. And that there is no hope because other people in your family have it bad too..

Why not just kick acne to the curb and get rid of it completely?
Acne is a skin disease and you need to treat it like one.. And instead of trying to accept it and let it haunt you everyday and cause you pain, suffering, embarrassment, and loss of confidence..

Why not just tell acne.. Hit the road!
Ok. Here’s the thing. I’ve had bad acne in the past and I know how horrible it is. Almost every product I used did not work.. Or only worked for a few days but then acne kept coming back again and again. Until I found Clear Pores. It combines 3 different acne treatments, so acne DOES NOT have a chance.

I got the 4-month complete system, and it not only cleared my acne completely but it HAS NOT come back since. I’ve been completely acne free for 7 months. And only this treatment can do that.

Http://killpimples.com/clearpores.htm

I’ve done proactiv, clean and clear, clearasil, mud packs, skin peels… And they just made it worse.

Seriously man, if you think you get attention from ladies now.. IMAGINE how much more you will get when you wake up every morning, look in the mirror and say “DAMMMMN! I really do look sexy today”.. You’ll be smiling alot more, have clear skin, and never have to worry about acne again.

I hope that answers your question.
Finally get that perfect skin you deserve. No more excuses!
You owe it to yourself.
