I hope you have enjoyed the introduction to this new Expert series on the blog.
It is going to be a monthly feature and I have a range of dancers, cyclists, boxers and many other fitness gurus lined up for the future to educate us and to share their skills. I am SO excited to have the privilege to learn from these guys.
I am even more excited to have you all as part of this community. Please do comment below on anything you would love to see more of. I am learning as I go along and enjoy the process of gathering and sharing, but ultimately it is for YOU.

This bodyweight workout that Ian designed is one to inspire anyone, anywhere, anytime.
He designed it to use as many muscle groups in these compound exercises as we can in one session, thus using more energy and burning more calories.
The fitter you get the more repetitions you will get in that time period of 40 seconds with each drill.
So after week two begin to extend the work time even by five seconds as a tester.
It is a simple body weight HIIT drill that you can start to add different exercises on to and/or use resistance bands, kettle bells, dumbbells.
The beauty of these exercises is that they can be performed in the front room, kitchen, bedroom, garage or back garden.
They are suitable for everyone because everyone can work within their own pace.
The good thing about doing these exercises at home is that you can work within your own limits and at your own pace. You can even do them watching Corrie or masterchef!!
Thank you for your time and wisdom Ian Young.
