The combination of Swings, Squats and Push Ups ensure nearly every body part is hit and it really gets the heart rate up! Guarantees weightloss, and toning in your training session. In our Galway gym this is pratised as part of our periodised training in our fitness classes.
1) Start Small. Simply aim for 7 minutes initially. This can increase over time if you wish. 2) Schedule it. Sometimes it can fall down your list of priorities when life gets busy.

Stop trying to be perfect. Strive to improve, to always be better. But stop focusing on being perfect. None of us ever will be. The goal of perfection will lead to more pain than enjoying the journey of improvement.
