Just a thought that popped up while working out upper body in the last hour. But first some context. Last week and this week, I am finding it very hard to exercise. It is after all holiday season, and I have had excellent exercise compliance so far this year. So why not take a break […]
The antidote to eight large slices of pizza I had earlier this week: five rounds of 👇 Then I topped it up with a bonus set of 70 kg deadlifts.
I finally ran the first 5k of this season! I intend to run a 5k every weekend for rest of the spring and summer. I ran about twenty-five 5ks in 2015. But I did not run much in 2016. This year I try to do better again. My running goal is modest: I just try […]

One of the skills I hoped to develop this year is to learn how to do push ups. I totally sucked at push ups last year despite exercising 110 hours. I just couldn’t do even a single push up on my toes. So rather than getting frustrated and angry at myself and jealous at others […]
