Janathon 2021: Tour of the shed-gym and some deadlifts…

Happy new year and all that! Of course, as is now tradition, I will be taking part in Janathon this year, for the uninitiated amongst you, Janathon is an event (in the loosest sense of the word event) whereby I have to partake of exercise every day, and blog about it, also every day!

So this is what I will be doing.

Today as you probably know is the first of January, this the customary first day of Janathon. I did, of course do some exercise, but I thought that before I tell you about that I would take you on a tour of the Shed-gym.

I was even brave enough to video it with a commentary which I don’t think sounds like me at all. I have been informed that I do actually sound like that, I am not convinced but that is not the point, that is the shed gym with all the amazing equipment we have managed to get our hands on!

For the sake of completeness, here it is in pictures too:

So that is the shed gym, in all it’s glory! I have to say I love it and I am so happy to have it here at home now the gyms are closed again!

Now for today’s exercise:

What more fitting exercise is there for the first day of the year than a deadlift or two. Well, several deadlifts actually and some rack pulls that I am particularly pleased with. This is the first time I have managed 130kg rack pulls for 3×3 πŸ˜€ not a bad start to the year!

I was much happier than that picture would lead you to believe!

Last, but by no means least, no janathon post would be complete without a picture or two from a walk! It was a walk in the dark mind you because it gets dark so early!

So that was day one of 2021!

Not a bad start really πŸ™‚

  1. I loved the tour 😍
    I’m confused that you have a voice and actually speak. How magnificent πŸ˜†
    Well done on your Janathon achievement so far. Day 1 of mine has left me with a dead washing machine, malfunctioning dishwasher and a factory reset PC. I am very glad I don’t own a car.

    1. I am glad you liked the tour πŸ˜€
      It’s weird isn’t it when you have only seen people on text based media then they speak!
      Mind you I am slightly confused that I have a voice that sounds like that!!

      Oh dear!! That sounds quite dramatic! I hope everything is ok!


      1. It was a great tour. I was surprised at how small your shed was. But that’s probably because my mother has a shed larger than the downstairs of my house.

      2. It’s a fairly large shed but having all the shed racking still in it and then gym stuff makes it quite full!
        I have about 3x2m of clear space in the middle outside of the gym rack so it is enough πŸ™‚
        Your mums shed sounds amazing!
        We are considering building another shed/garage type arrangement…


  2. I love your shed gym! It’s lovely to finally hear your voice.
    I don’t know why but I always thought your shed gym looked huge from the previous photos but the video makes it seem quite a bit smaller and probably the size it actually is.

    Well done for completing day 1 of Janathon.

    On another note, did you watch Worlds Strongest Man?

    1. It is 16’x12’ but it still has all the shed stuff in! So is about 8’ across (just bigger than a bar)
      For the video I just stood in the middle and turned round πŸ™‚
      I found it really strange hearing my voice πŸ˜€

      I did watch WSM! I followed the results when it was on in October so I knew what happened but it was still exiting πŸ˜€
