Re: Show and tell

I'm camera shy but I really happy with the way I have improved since starting the course. The only drawback for me is sticking with a diet. I have a passion for cakes and biscuits which I try to keep in check, I like a glass of wine or two as well. Moderation is the key, but I really get stuck into ...

Re: Mental

This is a subtle way of saying be positive in your outlook. I also read it as putting every effort into the exercises and the rewards will surely come in time.

Re: Question

Patience is the answer, you are obviously getting stronger and fitter by what you have reported so continue with the system. Results don't come over night and if you put enough time and effort in you will undoubtedly get the results you want.

Re: Before Or After Breakfast

Hi Bridge I know that CA advocated springing out of bed and into the exercises but I could never master that part of the course. I usually drag myself out of bed around 9AM, now I have retired, get a cup of tea and then settle down for a light breakfast which always includes a banana. The banana app...

Re: New To Routine

I usually do 3 sets of 10 of the palm exercise and usually together. Although the good thing about many of the exercises is that they can be performed at odd moments during the day, the important part is that you keep doing them!
