Sweaty and definitely no filters

Sweaty and definitely no filters.

Thank you @jamiebuckley5234 for the best dance fitness class ever with the funniest running commentary.
Laughter and dance are the best feelgood combination even in tropical temperatures and no aircon as the class is in the local community centre.

Harder than it looks! Early morning boxing training and HIIT workout

Harder than it looks! 
Early morning boxing training and HIIT workout.

Much easier to box with a trainer and pads than it is with this boxing practice machine that swings right back at you.

Wednesday pilates

Wednesday pilates.

Reformer exercise for posture, control,  balance and flexibility.
The control needed to stabilise and move the reformer slowly in and out smoothly engages so many muscles.
Core, tummy, glutes, hamstrings, abductors, calf muscles....

In the Pilates studio

In the Pilates studio.

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.

Back in the Pilates Reformer studio One leg in table top, the other doing straight leg raises to the highest point that stretches the ham strings too

Back in the Pilates Reformer studio

One leg in table top, the other doing straight leg raises to the highest point that stretches the ham strings too. All the time keeping the hips stable, core engaged and spine in neutral-not flat to the reformer.
