One of the things I notice about living in China is that almost everyone is up and running early in the morning: old folks, housewives aiming for the wet market, students/working people running for the bus and of course, toddlers and kids are out at the park for some early morning sunshine.
There are just so many public parks there is no reason for anyone not to exercise!
Thus, for 2017, we are on a “Let’s Get Healthy” programme, which began with morning exercise 🙂
Yup, the Hubs and I have been waking up at 5.30 am (!!!) on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays to do cardio, stretching and yoga.
He has been doing really well (after A LOT of “encouragement”) that now he’s unstoppable.
Me? I am trying to keep to:
a) stick to the 3 times a week routine and
b) get a balance of cardio, stretching and weight training
Anyway, here is my favourite video for a full body stretch:
10 Day Flexibility Challenge – Day 1 – great to stretch the thighs, glutes and hamstrings!
