2nd January 2023, Trying not to be super lazy

While we are closed for the break ( my work is also closed for 3 weeks) I’ve been using the time to practise writing myself an exercise program. Now this may seem odd, but i dislike gyms. Yes i know considering I’m doing a PT diploma that makes for a weird statement. But there is an artificialness and a certain “look at me” vibe that has never sat well with me in that environment, but that’s a story for another day.

My parameters were pretty basic, it’s 10 minutes only and follows 4 principles
– train with a purpose
-train hard and short
-make it progressive and diverse
-focus on functional and core training.
(Bear Grylls)

I already have a good selection of weights etc at the house and in a sneaky way i was interested to see if any of my kids would try what i was doing without me pushing them into it. (No takers unfortunately but I’m still hoping). So the only real change I’m making is to be more systematic rather than haphazard, and avoid that “it’s been a long day, I’m far too tired/comfy/just ate a king size bar of chocolate” mind set.

So, here’s what I’ve been messing about with
