Working Out

Posted by Bruno Afonso on 05/03/2009

mhwthumbWomen are constantly being pressured by the media and society in general to look pretty, thin, sexy, tonned, fit, within certain proportions, etc.

Well, men are feeling that kind of pressure too more and more nowadays.

However, some (most?) of us can’t afford to go to the gym or hire a personal trainer. That kind of leaves us on our own with trying to shape our body. There is nothing wrong with that, as long as we know what to do and are able to not overdo it, which is usually the biggest risk we run.

The ebook I’m presenting here can be a great aid in with planning your working out routine. It focuses on the major muscular groups – arms, shoulders, chest, abs and lower back, back and legs. Maybe you’ll need to invest in a couple of dumbells or barbells, but you’ll only have to pay for them once. Or you can try and adapt the exercises using other kinds of weights you can easily find at home – some books, bottles, etc.

You can get it here.

Just follow the instructions there, don’t overdo the exercises, don’t add more weight than specified in the book, and stop immediately if you feel any pain.
Mind you, you should see your doctor before starting any exercise routine on your own. I will not be held responsible if any harm should arise from following this book’s exercices.

DIY repair jobs at home

fixitcoverFrom time to time some things get broken around the house. When that happens, you have two choices – either fix it yourself or call someone to do it, in which case you’ll have to pay for the service.

So, unless you are incorrigibly lazy, you will probably want to do it yourself – not only because it is more fun and uplifting when we can fix things for ourselves, but also because the current world economic situation is not suited for unnecessary expenses.

This ebook covers all kinds of repairing job one usually has to face at home, ranging from wallpaper removal, repairing cornices, fixing floorboards, restoring door furniture, fixing drawers, and lots of other stuff.

Now you can actually be the handyman of the house =)
