Tuesday, September 30

Last week, I added some simple movement based body weight exercises, designed to help with every day life.  This is also the last day of September.  Hard to believe soon it will be Winter.  Let’s finish up strong.

To be honest, I’m beginning to get anxious/frustrated with not doing some more strenuous exercises. Prior to this experiment some time ago, I exercised regularly. So for those who use the baby steps method and focus on form and movement but are used to lifting big heavy weights: prepare for a bit of boredom.

We added a warm up a couple of weeks, and this week decided to double it for some extra warm up. After doing all the exercises for 8 movements, I’ve begun doing a second set.

Today is the first day of our newest exercise. Last week we added Exercise Name, and this week I’m only doing 1 rep with no weight.

Its impressive to see how far I’ve come after starting from barely half a mile per hour.  Its starting to feel like  a Workout when you add in Warm ups and Excerises.  But where to go from here?
