Day 47: Home Gym

It doesn't take much to get in a good workout at home. Push-ups, triceps dips using a chair, squats and lunges ...then video games :)

I have had a long couple of days and didn't feel like leaving the comfort of my home after work. I decided to hammer out as many push-ups as I could (25), triceps dips (not many. 4 sets of 5), squats while holding a large text book out in front of me (30) and alternating lunges (15 per leg). This works out really well when time is a factor. A typical trip to the gym takes at least a hour and a half when factoring in travel time. My home workout took 20 minutes including rest breaks. Who doesn't have 20 minutes in a day for them selves? excuses!

This weekend I'm taking it out side. Wentworth stairs and I am going to a run with a buddy in my favorite spot, Dundas Valley main loop. Can't wait!


  1. I hope you are doing well even if you haven't posted!

  2. I just saw your clip on CBC, and I am absolutely cheering for you! Your posts are thoughtful and very motivational to we fellow strugglers - so keep at it!

    Hope all is well!
