Rick Newcombe, Founder and President of Creators Syndicate, explains how we should make workouts fun and love them
LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, May 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Group, has many sporting activities including kite-surfing, daily singles tennis and two “extreme bike rides” ” per week. Recently, he has started lifting weights for the first time.
“The magic of weight lifting has two themes. One is that lifting light weights in good form will help you feel young until your 70s, 80s and 90s, ”says Rick Newcombe, Founder and President of Creators Syndicate. “The other is that the best workout is the one you love enough to keep doing it.”
Recently, the media reported that President Joe Biden, along with Mr. Branson, started their days lifting weights with a personal trainer. Both men are in their 60s and experts tell them the best way to feel young is through resistance training, which is a big post in The Magic of Weight Lifting. Newcombe writes that hiring a good personal trainer is “the best investment you can make.”
“I’m not surprised that Joe Biden and Richard Branson both lift weights in their seventies,” Newcombe said. “But Branson took it a step further by making his exercise one of the most enjoyable parts of his day.”
Branson begins his days with a walk around his private island with his dogs. Every morning he will play a fairly difficult round of singles tennis, usually with pro Riza. [Zalameda, the tennis coach at Necker Island]. He does it every morning and night because he loves tennis, and it’s one of Branson’s favorite ways to stay fit and healthy.
Newcombe continues, “Richard Branson says he’s twenty to seventy. His kitesurfing, tennis, bike rides, and long walks are exercises he loves to do. They are fun for him, and so on. ‘is the key. “
After her early morning efforts, Branson’s secretary shows up and they take another walk around the island, dictating emails and mastering work issues, which have been plentiful over the past 15 months. Yes [the extended family] is on the island, they will have breakfast together. Then after breakfast, if there isn’t some sort of crisis at work or with the foundation, if the wind picks up, Branson tries to bring in a kite. If the waves are up he might go surfing or paddleboarding, but kiting is Branson’s other passion.
“Oprah Winfrey also works out, but she says it’s the only part of her life she doesn’t really like. It does it for profit, ”Newcombe concludes. “But I would like her to take inspiration from Mr. Branson and figure out how to make her workouts fun, like he does.” This is the formula to stay there a lifetime. As for lifting weights, it was because Richard Branson and Joe Biden enlisted the help of knowledgeable personal trainers who convinced them that weight training is essential for feeling young as they get older.
The Magic of Lifting Weights is Newcombe’s personal story of becoming a “bodybuilder for life” while building a multi-million dollar media business, and his discovery that the best benefit of lifting weights is that it allows you to feel young in your “golden years”.
