Fitness in the London town - free stuff - this is what I do... (May 2017)

I admit doing a lot of things wrong - I'd happily swap 50% yoga hours - hackeryoga.com - into weight training hours and I'd be in much better shape right now.


Treating yoga as a workout was a poor misconception - maybe just enough to stay in fairly acceptable form but definitely not enough to achieve fitness goals:
- 10 pull-ups
- muscle up
- 5k under 20m
- different variations of backbends and splits
- increased shoulder mobility

It may looks cool in 360° VR but I definitely spent too much time working on this video. The thing is - either you film or focus on the practice:

Currently Attending:
Parkour Generations
- Bikram Yoga - actually prefer Jivamukti with Beth and Annalisa
- East London Gymnastics (Beckton)

Evaluating:

(running is super democratic, anyone can do this, there are many more running clubs)

Obstacle racing is a very authentic, primal, natural sport - just you and no artificial rules. Similar to Spartan Race and Tough Mudder - first page of Google (self fulfilling prophecy, by linking to them they'll remain on top) - just to name a few - list of lists:

(waiting till Siri / Alexa / Google will structure this data in an standardised form)

Last but not least - current version of me - messy hair - not shaven - silly look - awful posture - inflated belly - in other words - THE WORST VERSION OF ME - so that I could observe a visible progress in a couple of months:


Let's make it to the next level...
