My grandchildren and my children all seem to be doing this young man’s live workouts and loving it.
I have resisted as long as possible but did his Workout for Seniors a few minutes ago and he is really sweet. Doesn’t make you feel creaky at all!
Many of you will be doing the full Monty, but for those like me who are easily intimidated, I absolutely recommend him!

Thanks for that maw - all mine are a bit besotted so I'll give it a look.

He is on my things to do list, but honestly I don’t know where the time goes.

Just watched it, couldn't help noticing how many times he touched his face! smile I prefer to have some music to exercise to.

My very active 9 year old granddaughter has been doing the workouts and when I mentioned that perhaps I should have a look, she sagely advised me that it might be a bit much for me as it made her legs sore the next day. grin

Thankyou MawB I really enjoyed that not too long but gets your heart going. 🤸🏼‍♂️

I’ve been doing the 10 minute workout for seniors almost every morning in the garden (in a spot I don’t think is overlooked so won’t frighten the neighbours) and find it, and the fresh air, just enough to make me feel good for the day and helps make up for lack of walking.

SueDonim Mon 30-Mar-20 13:25:19

We’ve just done the one for seniors, the standing up one, not the chair ones. Our cats came and sat in front of us with faces that said ‘What in god’s name are you two DOING?’ 😹😹

Grannmarie Mon 30-Mar-20 14:51:02

I've been doing the P.E. class every morning, if I can't do some of the floor exercises I just March on the spot!

I find it really good for the mood.

Grannmarie Mon 30-Mar-20 14:51:57

march...oops, should've gone to Specsavers!

I managed to persuade DH to do the other Joe Wicks for seniors workout. We’ve done it every day for the past week, I must have a look at this one.

Shelmiss Mon 30-Mar-20 14:58:28

I did his workout live for the first time this morning at 9am and it’s a killer if you’re unfit (as I am!!) but you don’t need to do much at all, even waving your arms about will be fine.

It made me feel really connected to approx 600,000 others who were apparently viewing his channel at the same time.

Just do what you can, no-one is watching (well apart from my two dogs who had to be banished to the hall as they kept licking my legs!).

I also do the seniors one, but twice. I think he’s a gorgeous young man and he is donating every penny of this additional revenue to the NHS. One if the good guys.

I have been doing it here with DD and DGS, SIL came out of his office once when he was home, took one look, turned around and came down here to make his coffee.
We love it and he just seems so nice.

SueDonim Mon 30-Mar-20 16:16:15

I like how it appears to be happening in his sitting room. grin

Grannmarie Mon 30-Mar-20 16:20:12

Yes, I love the family photos on the shelves.

Callistemon Mon 30-Mar-20 16:36:46

The DGC have been doing it every morning before they start their schoolwork - and getting Mum and Dad to join in too!

Maggiemaybe Mon 30-Mar-20 16:53:49

I joined in with it this morning, just to feel the connection with the family, who always do it. I doubt I put in quite as much gusto as the young ones though! I did the one for seniors later. Now where’s that halo emoticon, GNHQ? grin

nanou Tue 31-Mar-20 12:11:47

Hi all,
What time is his class in the morning and where? Sorry, just landing here....

Callistemon Tue 31-Mar-20 13:07:12

There are various ones, I think nanou
The one for children is about 9 am but there are others, unless you want to hop round the sitting room like a bunny rabbit!

I think he is on YouTube

I did his seniors this morning - takes 10 minutes.

A bit of fun

Callistemon Tue 31-Mar-20 13:14:46

I just did 5 minutes to start with!

then some Qigong later

Maggiemaybe Tue 31-Mar-20 13:15:47

Well, yesterday’s session taught me a valuable lesson, that my senior legs and lunging and kangaroo hops aren’t compatible. Yogalates for me today, till the aches and pains go away. grin

Will we need Tena Ladies?🤦‍♀️🤣🤣🤣
