Friday Fitspo

I was thinking during the week that I may change Transformation Tuesday to Friday Fitspo. What do you think? I would love to share people's fitness inspiration and what keeps them healthy and fit. As you know, you need to feel good on the inside for that to show on the outside but looking good isn't why I do what I do, it's all about feeling healthy, full of energy and ultimately being happy. So here's my fitspo this week that I also shared over on Instagram.

Wall Squats

Find a wall in your office, home or outside. These isometric wall squats rock! I just did 5 sets of 10, holding for 10 seconds.

What are isometric exercises?

Isometric exercises are when the joints and muscles are not allowed to move a great deal, or contract to any extent. Rather they are allowed to be static and a force is generated at the joints and muscles without any movement. These are more apparent when you push your body against a wall. The wall doesn't move, you don't move, but a significant force is generated at the joints and muscles and this increases strength at the joints.

Food has been relatively good this week minus the birthday cakes, which I will share more next week. This is my home made muesli that only takes minutes.
