Where’s my Zimmer frame?


One thing we do (a little bit too much for my liking) at BMF is getting chest or back to floor and standing up again over and over. It sounds easy, and I used to wonder how it can help get us fitter, but do lots of repeats as fast as you can and you soon find out.

Some days I can slide down and bounce back up again very quickly but on others I resemble an old lady in need of a Zimmer frame.

This morning during BMF we were adding a lie flat, chest to floor, at either end of a shuttle run. Guess what sort of day it was? I’ll give you a clue. I didn’t run many reps in 2 minutes!

Juneathon day 21. 1 hour BMF class, about 2.5 miles run and lots of faffing about lying down, standing up and lying down again.
