A change from diet and exercise posts with Sunday culture and a visit to Charles 1 Kingandcollector exhibition @royalacademyart

A unique and never before seen collection of Old Masters showing Charles 1 extraordinary patronage of the arts during his rocky reign before he was finally executed . A fascinating insight into the King's court and family and often progaganda of personal power through his commissioned portraits.
King Charles I amassed one of the most extraordinary art collections of his age, acquiring works by some of the finest artists of the past – Titian, Mantegna, Holbein, Dürer – and commissioning leading contemporary artists such as Van Dyck and Rubens.

Lunges with your weight on an unstable base.
This helps all the muscles and core engage from your balancing foot ankle and leg to your core and glutes and tum.

However...on another level
It has just been suggested to me by my hip surgeon that anyone like me who has had a hip re-surface surgery procedure and has metal on metal in their hip -this could be having adverse effects as the flexion movement on the weight bearing leg can cause the metal on metal to rub more than usual.
Metal on metal hip replacements and resurfaces can cause metal ions (cobalt and chromium) to leak into the blood stream and give metal ion readings in the blood above normal levels. This could  cause future health issues.
