Project Energise: Day 10 Lots of squats!

Day 10 of Project Energise, I finally made it back to the shed gym, on my own to restart my slightly forsaken strongperson training programme! I restarted the Stoltman programme that I started this time last year, because it is simple (but not easy!) and it really works! So I headed down to the (still…… Continue reading Project Energise: Day 10 Lots of squats!

I have been hit by the mop of demotivation

I have actually googled mop of demotivation, and it is, apparently, not a real thing, but I was considering what implement someone would use to spread demotivation and it would definitely be a mop. A slightly musty damp mop that has been sitting in a not quite empty mop bucked for a few weeks. So,…… Continue reading I have been hit by the mop of demotivation

Project 44: day 2 – pushing and swinging!

Day two of project 44 involved personal training in which Matt the trainer decided that a sled-push / kettlebell swing / goblet squat followed by some more sled pushing and pulling would be exactly what I needed to wake up my morning! To some extent he wasn’t wrong…I did wake up. It was quite an…… Continue reading Project 44: day 2 – pushing and swinging!

September kettlebell fun…

I decided that I want to do more kettlebells. I used to do kettlebells all the time, then for some reason my use of them waned and now my lovely kettlebells sit gathering dust and in one case, acting as a doorstop. This will not do! It is time I dragged my poor neglected kettlebells…… Continue reading September kettlebell fun…
