So I have decided to grow a mustache for Movember. If you are not familiar with Movember then its what is responsible for sudden growth spurt of hair under your nose and above your lips for a whole 30 days. For some it may carry on for life. That being the fun side, but more serious side of it is to raise awareness for men’s health and more specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer. 14 days on and I looking like a right idiot unlike the The Great Gama or Eugene Sandow who could sport it really well along with their great strength.

So to promote men’s health as such I have dedicated 30 minutes or so of training daily which will consist mainly of Bodyweight Calisthenics, Kettlebell Complexes, and Dumbell Complexes with some Barbell & Sandbag Complexes thrown in. The idea is simple workouts that can be carried out daily. There will be some days in the week that will be purely dedicated to long walks and mobility drills for general. Okay so this is focusing on Fitness rather than Health per se, but it is better than going out and getting pissed on various Movember parties. We’ll leave that till the end of the month.

So here are some of the examples of the workouts carried out by myself and my personal training clients in Leeds so far:
