Daily Dozen info


im sorry, i know this will probably be a one reply post but im just curious:
what are the "daily dozen"??
iv heard the phrase in a couple of places and from what i have figured its a warm up exercise routine of some sort. it would be greatly appreciated if someone could specify the 12 exercises and how you are meant to do them, how long to hold for ... etc

cheers

next question:
when doing pushups, should your arms go outwards, (at right angle to body) or should they go back (parallel to direction of body) and does it really matter?

im not too sure if the military requires a certain style, but for training purposes, starting out at a ninety degree bend is easier to start off with. if you want more resistance, go with the parallel.

That doesn't change the "resistance" at all. You'd have to get heavier to change that. What it does change is the muscles that take the load. So do both types.

By the way Locke, in the Australian army you can do either
