Book Details Author: Royal Canadian Air Force Pages: Hardcover Brand: Running in place The underlying principle for both regimes was to work all your muscle groups for a short time, gradually increasing the intensity of the workout as you got more fit while keeping the length of time you took to do the set the same.

You raised the intensity by increasing the number of reps to be done in the time allotted for each exercise. So, for example, you'd start off by having to do four sit-ups in two minutes, but by the time you got to the highest level, you'd have to do 48 reps in those two minutes, having steadily increased the number of reps as you progressed through the levels.

Once you could achieve a certain number of reps in the time allotted for each exercise and could maintain that for a given number days in a row, you moved up a level of intensity: more reps and, after every twelfth level, each exercise became a bit more challenging. Descriptions of the exercises and an easy-to-follow table for the required number of reps for each one at each level start here for XBX and here for 5BX.

Or follow the links to the left of this article. XBX simply ran from level 1 through 48 with the exercises changing slightly every 12 levels. There were age-dependent target levels to reach and designated numbers of days to spend at each level before progressing to the next. And believe us, as we speak from experience, the highest levels were challenging: 40 push-ups and 50 pike sit-ups in 2 minutes, for example.

While performing research at the University of Illinois in the early s, Orban had noticed, when testing oxygen intake, that long periods of exercise did not necessarily lead to significant improvement. This led him to the conclusion that the intensity of exercise was more important to improving fitness than the amount of time spent on it. He incorporated this conclusion into his proposed exercise plan for the RCAF.

This concept drew a negative reaction from others in the field at the time but it proved its worth in the three years of testing that the RCAF performed before releasing the program in Based on this research and testing, Orban came up with five basic exercises 5BX , four to improve flexibility and strength and one to boost aerobic fitness. The plan was innovative in two respects.

Firstly, it did not require access to specialized equipment. Many RCAF pilots were located in remote bases in northern Canada, with no access to gymnasium facilities, so it was important to offer a means of keeping fit without their use. Secondly, the plan only required that eleven minutes be spent on the exercises per day.

Later he produced a program with ten basic exercises XBX for women that required twelve minutes to complete. The programs proved popular with civilians. In total, twenty-three million copies of the booklets were sold to the public.

Orban, creating the program as a public servant , received no additional income from the success of the plan. John Walker's book The Hacker's Diet first published in contains a simplified version, that is claimed to be suitable for everyone. Celebrity practitioners of the program included the late George Burns. Each chart is composed of five exercises that are performed within eleven minutes.
