Has anyone tried the Muller System? (workout)

I have read a couple of articles about this and it seems like it might be a great way to start the day. I think it might be a little light on resistance and intensity to rely on it completely, but if it only takes 15 minutes, why not kick your morning off with it and get the blood flowing.

Has anyone here tried it? Thoughts? Experiences? Results?

jbone, that second link is awesome. I was looking at this as a "no matter how crazy life gets, I always have 15 minutes" kind of thing. Then i looked at the book and thought there is no reason that a 15 minute workout needs 120 pages to explain it. This makes it much easier and approachable.

Note: I'm not sure we're "supposed" to do anything. I think what you mean is that we thrive when we do a variety of activities.

Looks good. I have never heard of this before. I like doing mobility and "core" exercises and this looks efficient. Not everyone has a lot of free time to spend on exercise, unfortunately. Maybe I will add this to my BBS routine.

It would certainly be an improvement on doing nothing, there appears to be some good mobility moves in there, the importance of which cannot be overstated.

That said, some of the moves - Sit ups with feet anchored for example - Are now known to be incredibly bad for the back (I feel sorry for the doctor in the interviews patients with back pain!).

Also, can you really only devote 15 mins per day to movement?

If you want to embrace the paleo lifestyle, you need to move like our ancestors as well as eat like them.

Humans are supposed to walk, run, jump, climb, throw, lift, swim etc.

Walk to the park and throw rocks around and try and climb trees for 15 mins. This would be a much more effective and interesting workout!

FYI. The full text of My System by Mueller is online: http://www.sandowplus.co.uk/Competition/Muller/System/system-intro.htm

See a summary of the exercises here: http://www.andrewcolgoni.ca/2011/01/summarizing-mullers-my-system/

I'm doing it for last 27years & now 52 years age. I complete whole of MY SYSTEM in 13 minutes. My father used to do the same exercises & till his last days he was very fit & w/o any ailments. It strengthens the body & in rubbing exercises the more one presses hard the more the body gets into shape. However, I do the system 3 alternate days ,the other 3 days i do 20 mins interval training on trade mill. Sunday is off day. My diet is rice, fish, vegetables, pulses, nuts & almonds & fruits. One must do the exercises smoothly & with correct forms to get the result.

If a lifetime of it results in the body of the fellow in the video, I think I'll respectfully pass.

"Müller was the Tom Paine of free body movement and fresh air. Like many a radical, he was resisted at first, called pornographic (partly because he often appeared in a loincloth—even while skiing in St. Moritz). His was a call to throw off the restrictive shackles of the Victorian era—a literal stripping away of restrictive layered clothes and corsets, a rejection of the "pallid, sickly looks" once prized as beautiful, and the "false dignity which forbids people, for instance, to indulge in so healthy and beneficial an exercise as running." He admonished: "Do not let a day pass without every muscle and every organ in your body being set in brisk motion." And bathing—the man had a fondness for cleanliness many of his contemporaries did not share: "This does not only refer only to people of the 'working' classes. I have often met 'gentlemen' in frock-coats and top hats and ladies in evening dress of whom you could tell by the smell of them, even at a distance of several feet, that they seldom or never took a bath.""

Interesting indeed.
