25/04/2023 Today I did my first 5 Tibetans since I started logging! I used to do them all the time. As I start to do more, I’m gravitating naturally towards a session instead of “wherever I can fit some exercise in” and I am finding that a warm-up is a good idea. The 5 Tibetans work very well. Totals for today are; 70 sit-ups, 6 pull-ups + 2 slow pull-ups down only but very slowly, 25 push-ups, and my glute exercises. And a 5 km walk to finish off. Whew.
