About Community Greens

It takes more than a village to raise a child in today's world. The world is more than flat or round or sun and moon. It's also the village on the other side of the river. The objects in the sky are different from that view. Community Greens, griot-like, tells a story. I invite you to share my view.

The CG Fit Chick

The push-up is an essential muscle-building move. They're a barometer of your overall cardiovascular health as well. A recent study by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health found that men who can complete 40 consecutive push-ups have a 96% lower risk of coronary artery disease and heart attacks in the future compared with those who can only do 10 or fewer. Push-up capacity was more strongly associated with lower incidence of cardiovascular disease events than was aerobic capacity as estimated by a treadmill exercise test. If you're not hitting 40 but can still perform more than 10, you're doing some good. Heart disease risk decreased with every push-up completed over the baseline of 10.
