I've looked into the kettlebell training locally with strong first , but it's based around set times, ie 7.30pm etc
Looks a cracking set up, with a couple very knowledgeable blokes, but
I'm knackered with this due to work, I can't commit to set times and days etc, the other thing is once the cricket season starts, it has to fit into that
So
I'm gonna buy a couple bells, and YouTube basic exercises
I will also push on with the walking, possible jogging

Managed to dip under 16 stone now, which is a stone off since this time last year, hope fully I can drop another over the year with the help of the training and continued healthy eating

I have the same problem, with finding time. Next best thing is to follow this swing and Turkish get up programme on the link below. It's written by Pavel Tsatsouline who owns strongfirst. He has a training cv as long as both my arms and introduced Kettlebells to the US. His programme is based on building mobility and strength stability with the Turkish get up and conditioning/ power endurance with the swing. I followed this programme for 2 years and still include it in my training pretty much daily. It's has great carry over for cricket.

If I could only do 2 exercises it would be these.

I managed to find a local school with a small gym in their set up. It's only 10 a month. It hadn't gotten the range of machines a 'normal' gym has but it's rarely busy and I do think feel the cost is prohibitive. I've not really lost weight but I have slimmed down slightly and feel better for it. Bonus is that I can go after the kids have gone to bed and I don't sit watching the telly eating!

Variety and fun have to be high up there!

Walking, running, swimming and cycling are all good types of exercise to build upon

The body has three ways of burning energy - it uses sugars first and kicks into fat burning after 20 mins or more of low intensity exercise - so choose appropriate exercises and duration

There are two ancient and very good methods of helping with general fitness - yoga and also tai chi - both 1000s of years old and superb

There is an ace app called bodyweight, it has loads of work outs, dead simple but good to do, I try and do one called PROMETHEUS three times a week (press ups, sit ups, climbers, squats, jumping jacks)

good luck

Ah cheers, will have a look now at the app
Just had first winter net, so that's gonna get me moving a bit, but I need to be doing something every day
Ie the walking and stretching etc, and kettlebell three times a week for the strength part

This is a good thing, reduces the amount of choice means you can get in and out quicker. All you need is a push, pull, lift and squat, job done. Also machines are ok if you have an injury you are rehabbing or you're a body builder, but sportsman (pro and amateur) generally dont play sitting at a leg press, you need full body range of movement.

I've got a 6kg and an 8kg bells
As I figured I'd better practice correct technique with em before upping the weight, and I'd rather do more reps than risk injury through lifting stupid weights
And I can do curls etc with them too

Had an interesting chat with a work colleague in sarf London this week
I'd not seen him for 6 months or so, and couldn't believe how much weight he'd lost
He'd been hitting the gym hard for a year or so, and bulked up quite a bit,(he reckons no drugs)
Anyway, he'd injured his shoulder before xmas and hasn't lifted weights since, but had started running, working up from 1k to 4K in just over a month
He's lost over a stone in weight, and a huge amount of the bulked up muscle he had,(3inch of his biceps!)

You'll find those well too light I'd guess, but definitely the right thing to do learning proper technique before increasing in weight 👍

I'm trying to get the missus to have a go too, so thought it would kill two birds
I can always do more reps, it's a lot safer than lifting too much

I've cut out processed food and sugar for January, without changing anything other than my diet I've managed to lose 9lbs in 3 weeks and feel so much healthier as a result.

I've spent last coupla years, you tubing and reading books etc on diets and healthy eating
Few things I've tried to put into practice, and I'm feeling a million times better for it
Sort of a combination of a few things flying around,
Basically, fallen from a tree, ie as little processed food as possible
I've virtually cut out red meat, and eat very little meat full stop.
As much fresh veg as I can, two thirds of a meal at least
As few carbs as possible, definitely no white bread
Breakfast and lunch are fruit only,(as much as I want) feel mega from starting this before xmas, bloatings gone, and I'm never hungry during the day now,no lack of energy,even after a 14hr day and 600miles of driving.
ALL meals are cooked fresh, definitely no ready meals.

Still can't seem to drink much water, I just can't do it

Just wish I'd started this a long time ago

glad its working for you, you'll be getting plenty of fluids from the fruit you're eating. I wouldnt worry about trying to down litres of water.

Your kettlebell suggestion turned things around for my cricket fitness 1-2 years ago. :) Kettlebell led to barbells for strength which led to a more structured general fitness program. But, it all started with kettlebells.
