It is believed that push ups stimulate hormones production include testosterone at higher level.

This hormone is important for both men and women to maintain body health.

As suggested by Harrison Wein, Ph.D. (published in National Institute of Health, 2013), some important roles of testosterone for men:

- to regulate libido, fat distribution

- cause strength of muscle and bone

- effect on productions of sperm and red blood cells

Roles of testosterone for women may include:

- maintain growth

- repair reproductive tissues

To lose 1 pound per-week, we need to do push-ups at least 500 a day.

Thus, find other movements such as jogging or running that is among good sports to lose fat.

However, even it is simple movement, push up has greater positive effect on our health.

Then, the question is how many push-ups should we do everyday?

The answer is depend on the age.

It is suggested to do around 100 push-ups for people under 50, whereas more than 100 push-ups for people above 50 years old.

Why we do not do push-ups now?

Satsuma size is not big enough, easy to hold two oranges by hand. The skin is oily and not thick, so easy to be peeled up.

I myself could consume up 10 oranges per-day.

Sure, we can find Satsuma or any kind of oranges in the market. Our favorite place is farmer market.

The oranges grow well in the southern parts (parishes) in our state, Louisiana.

Because of our state characterizes by hot temperature, it is might equal to orange origin.

The oranges are believed come from two countries:

- Japan

- China

Growing Some Sweet Fruits at Our Backyard – Part 1 - Gardening and Hobby 22

Fig 01- Orange at backyard

We have a quite comfortable backyard with around 30 x 25 square meter size.

Enjoyable to grow several kinds of fruit, they are:

- Satsuma "Mandarin" Orange

- lemon squash trees

- straw berry

- and black berry.

The sweetest fruit is Satsuma "Mandarin" Orange.

Since a Satsuma tree is self pollinating, so we can have one tree only to get harvesting.

The orange starts to ripe in the early fall season (around September) every year.

My single tree could produce hundred of Satsuma oranges per year during last 6 years.

Fig 03- Storage at backyard

We got free natural vitamin C during fall season until early winter.

So fresh.

Moreover, about our backyard, at a corner, there is a small house (function as a storage).

In front of it, a swing and small table for afternoon coffee or tea. A cup of coffee together with cake and Satsuma orange is afternoon menu until middle of autumn, where temperature is not cold yet.
