“I’ll work out from home with my gym closed!” he said.
“Sure I’ll do the same amount of exercise!” He thought.
Not so much it seems.
I stopped going to the gym a couple of weeks ago in light of Covid-19 and aside from walking the dog, my exercise has stopped. As a result of that, I’ve made a deal with myself, for every £1 spent on a non-essential purchase I have to do 1 press up. Essential purchases are bills and food, everything else is fair game.
I originally thought 2 press-ups and then bought a sideboard for £200 and the reality of 400 press-ups stared me in the face…
Avoiding the same mistakes I made in my bet I thought I’d be a bit more humble and stick to 1 press up, and I thought I might mix it up so I’ve decided 1 press up = 2 sit-ups which = 3 squats so I can do 200 press-ups for this sideboard, or 400 sit-ups, 600 squats or a mixture of all 3.
For me this is perfect, I can just steal the time for them gradually throughout the day and it’s more interesting than a daily exercise routine.
This popped into my head after The Fire Starter suggested a more physical challenge on a previous post, you did this to me!
