Part 5: 30 Essential Core and Strength Instructional Videos
This is a key part of our toolkit for life and our vision for of “A Celebration of Movement and Wellbeing”
We started off with about 50 exercises, narrowed it down and looked around for a set of 30.
We knew we needed full instructional videos NOT ROPEY DODGY PICTURES!
And we wanted voice-over instructions too.
And that’s what we will deliver as a whole package below
BUT over the next 5 days, we will split this package of 30 videos into six videos each day.
We want you to explore the exercises and try them out in a curious way. As if it’s the first time you have ever seen them.
Almost as if you were coming to them in a mindful way and with one of the six attitudes of mindfulness; with a child’s mind.
Check to see how your body feels when you try each routine. Be aware of any sensations, take it easy and slow.
It’s just an exploration stage. No need to go all wild. You have the rest of your life to keep coming back to them.
But before we proceed …

Little increments. NO GUNG HO!
FORGET “No Pain, No Gain” models. By Taking things light and easy, you can come back to these when you feel its right.
We covered this in our article “Greasing the Groove”.
Listen to your body. Try a little more every day.
Stop as soon as you feel you have reached your optimal amount. And don’t reach a point where you are forcing yourself.
Even if you reach the same point as yesterday, that’s ok. Give yourself a big cheer. You turned up, and you did your best.
There is always tomorrow and the day after.
And every day you will grow in strength, and as a person, as your repeat and persist and make it a habit.
