Ah, Monday! Nice to see you again, Sir. Been a whole week since I saw you last. What’s with cold shoulder? I see. Yes, I realize it is still winter. A few more months to go till we play the roulette of a UK summer.  I hope there are better odds on some sunshine after being washed out last year, got to top up on vitamin D. I agree, multi-vits are just not the same.

The plan: get moving to keep warm. Some HIIT should tick that box! 18 minutes and your done! 6 exercise, 3 rounds, 50 seconds high intensity work for each exercise, 10 seconds to get ready for the next one!

  • High knees skipping
  • 2 plank knee tucks then a pushup, repeat
  • Side jump lunges
  • Reverse push ups
  • Jump lunges
  • Side plank hip raise, alternate sides

Keep warm and stay cosy! Not like Storm Trooper Chuck (retired from service).
