Cor blimey!!!!  I did a Fitness Boot Camp tonight in the local park - that was a bit of a challenge for tubby little me!!!

Lots of sprints, squats, bunny hops, wide arm press-ups, shuttle runs etc- bloody hard work with my level of fitness.

Apparently it's different every week, next week will be sprints and then kettle thingies, boxing, waving ropes around etc.


But strangely, I actually enjoyed it - despite the fact i wanted to vomit in the bushes afterward. I thinks it's a combination of the variety and all the lycra-clad, wobbly lady's botties.

I shall be going again! :)

Those sprints weren't part of it @FattusCattus , they were just the ladies in Lycra trying to escape from you  ;)

I can't tell you what effect a big juicy female bum, clad in lycra, running in front does to me physically - but suffice it say, it acts like a rudder!

I've taken up going to a group personal trainer session with my mate. Started at Easter, been going 3 times a week. Down to 16st from 18 and a half! Lost 10 inches from around my belly. Keep it up @FattusCattus I feel much better for it

@JB
Ten inches!!!
That's really good

And the bootcamp things huge down sarf, not my cup of tea but glad to see your participating slimmus
Actually getting out there and doing something is half the battle

Bit of an update for me
Shoite really I'm embarrassed to say
I was in Germany last week again and managed to cover the whole country driving, just about 2k miles!
So my backs locked up this week, so feeling a bit old and fragile.

It is a state of mind, and I need to snap out of it and get back to exercising.
ive enjoyed bowling this year, think I'm up to 70 overs or so, and actually felt I bowled quite sharp for me on Saturday.

Lycra clad ladies hmmm

To be honest, I'm missing the gym
With three under five yr olds at home, I can't manage my time enough to work out at home.
The ability to pop into a gym before I go home from work meant I could exercise before tea and still entertain the kids etc

Slight update as there's a few threads on here regarding fitness/ diets etc

I'm upping the home workouts to a minimum of three times a week
It's not been easy fitting them in , with three under five year olds at home, getting time to workout, or more than 4 or 5 hrs kip in between childminding duties is not ideal.

I'm still doing a basic workout with the kettlebells and push ups
Easy enough, and no need for loads of equipment or time
I can do a workout in 15 mins or so.

Now
Ok this is nowhere near what some of you guys are doing, and applaud those  people that are doing this

My thinking is still, it's better to do something rather than the nothing I was doing before.

On another note, anyone watched the 'what the health 'documentary ?

Pilates or Yoga are great for mobility. If these aren't possible then a good stretching routine every morning would help along with most firms of exercise for general fitness. Not many men stretch enough before or after exercise and leads to mobility issues, muscle injury and back issues. Loads of stuff on Youtube and there's a good stretch routine for mobility as part of the free programme offered by Tenax Performance. I had back problems and was advised by my physio that it was all linked to tightness in my glutes and hamstrings. His advice, stretch more!

Yeah spot on

I had the same advice 20yrs ago when I first damaged my back.
The hospital physio said I had the hamstrings of a 70yr old.

She said stretching was incredibly important

The first cricket box was used in 1874.  The first cricket helmet was introduced in 1974. So, it took 100 years for men to twig that their brains were also worth protecting.

I've just turned 40 and consider myself to be in decent shape but my flexibility is shocking. Something I'm now working on and doing a stretching routine every morning as part of my program. Foam rollers are really good too.

Haven't sat and watched it myself but I've read the headline claims, safe to say it's better viewed as a propaganda piece than any kind of science!

There's a lot of people seem to be taking up the meat free lifestyle

I've watched it a couple of times and it's fairly compelling viewing.
A lot seems to ring true with it, from personal experience

As does the fat sick and nearly dead films,
