Never expected to be sharing my morning routine with Mr Motivator!!

Lockdown, March 2020, and my three Aquafit sessions a week that I’d been doing for three years (the only exercise I could manage with severe arthritis) disappeared into the pale blue yonder – and so too, very quickly, did my muscle tone! Boy, did I get cross with all those folk telling us to “get fit, go for a walk” …..I shouted quite a lot at the telly and radio!

Aquafit only restarted, once a week, at the end of November, 2020 – three sessions in and it’s closed again. The joy for me of the second lockdown, though, was I had a glorious new hip and could actually walk!! Yay!! What walking doesn’t do is help with muscle tone throughout your body. So….I asked Santa for four 1kg weights….

Then….what was I going to actually do! Mr Motivator to the rescue!!! Thought I’d try out a sitting routine in case it’s something you might need or like……the You Tube one posted on 14th December, 2020 is perfect! Sitting on the sofa wasn’t, though, you do need to be on a chair and to be able to stretch out your leg fully… table was in my way for a few of the routines.

Bloomin heck it’s a good work out! You don’t need the weights but if building muscle tone is your aim, they really help.

Go Mr M!!!! (and Mrs G!)….
