Art De Vany

This is an amazing blog on health and fitness that I've not been able to keep my eyes off of all morning since some kind commenter to my last post on resistance training steered me to it. They say pictures are worth a thousand words, and this is no exception.


Mr. De Vany will be 70 years old in three months (notice the chest and forearms; pictures of vitality, health and fitness both). I wish I looked half as good at 46 and am working on it (photos in two months). There's two things I'd point out to you, both being categories on the blog and so quite a number of posts in each (but very much worth reading). The first is what not to do, i.e., very much aerobics. It's dangerous to your health. Second…; eat fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts and lean meats. Lift weights intensively for short periods of time and perhaps throw in some random (short) duration and distance wind sprints (intense running). All very simple, fun, and short and infrequent enough to benefit — not damage — your body and be fun.

I'm Richard Nikoley. Free The Animal began in 2003 and as of 2021, contains 5,000 posts. I blog what I wish...from health, diet, and food to travel and lifestyle; to politics, social antagonism, expat-living location and time independent—while you sleep—income. I celebrate the audacity and hubris to live by your own exclusive authority and take your own chances. Read More

    A good hard ride on a mountain bike is useful. Ordinary riding is an aerobic waste of time. Riding hard builds the biggest muscle groups in your body.
