    Best way to spend 30mins.....

    I've just started doing 30mins with dumbells and am teetering about with a few arms some sit up's and lunges and squatts... but wondered what actually would be the best way to spend this time?!

    Re: Best way to spend 30mins..

    At the end of the next run that you do (hoping that you run more than once a month !!!), do 10 press ups and then 10 sit ups.
    Every other run you do from then on add 1 of each to the total
    Eventually you will reach a ceiling number
    Drop back down 5 of each and work back up and you should be able to exceed the previous total by one or two
    Repeat ad infinitum

    As long as you are exercising the legs and cardio vascular system sufficiently well in the runs, this programme will get you better conditioned and fitter than you have ever been. Your own body weight is the simplest form of resistance that you need.

    Nothing scientific but it ticks all the boxes.
    Try it and see

    Top! I've been trying to get into the habit of doing 5-10mins on exercise bike - sit up's and then streches after each run as a proper warm down

    Will add those pesky push up's.. have been trying to do them in the 30mins workout but am pretty useless - BUT practice makes perfect!!

    Good idea's

    I know - we had a sneaky look this morning!
    I think I need to print that off and frame it... and then I'll watch myself sadly falling to the lower ranks again!

    hee hee.. but it feels wicked to be top of the ladies table!! I'll just bask in glory for a short while
