Well, this one is long, long overdue for sure. If you've been following this site a while (and if your one of the many who have signed up for the daily newsletters and/or made purchases), then you've probably noticed the complete lack of communication from me for a few months now, both via email and on the website. I used to send an email to you on an almost daily basis, or weekly at the very least, but as of late, that has not been happening - and I owe you a (long overdue!) explanation for this.
So, where HAVE I been - and what have I been upto?
Well, many things, really - the short answer to this would be LIFE and it's many turns have been keeping me busy. REAL busy, so busy that I've not even found time to speak to you guys for a while, which is something I aim at rectifying at the very earliest.
Well, like I said - many things - amongst one, Mrs Rahul Mookerjee and myself discovered a while back that we're soon going to become parents. Yes, that's right - unexpected news, at least when we got to know, but still GREAT news, and something we've always wanted.
Second, as many of you already know, I moved to Oman a while back - this for reasons mostly unrelated to the Fast and Furious business, but reasons unavoidable all the same - and THAT has been keeping me busier than an industrious worker bee as of late.
I'll go more into detail on all this at a later stage, but for now, let's just say that I've been real busy - like unavoidably busy - and hence the silence for a few months.
Anyway, so what have I been doing for exercise during this busy time, you might ask. Have I been getting my workouts in as usual?
Well - the answer to that is YES - even if I exercise less frequently at times due to other committments. But yes, I've still been getting some great ones in - and whats even better is that I've been experimenting with some different routines, which look to be giving me good results as well.
I'll share the actual "meat" of the workouts with you in emails to follow, but for now, I'll give you a brief overview:
- I've been getting a lot of my workouts in on the beach - great, great place to workout if one knows how to (and plus it's right HERE - prime example of using whatever "tools" you have at your disposal at the time). Workouts done on a flat surface are one thing, but add the uneven nature of a sandy beach in, and you take each exercise to a whole different level. Fingertip pushups as covered in Fast and Furious Fitness are a great example - they feel TWICE as hard when done in the shifting sand. Not to mention swimming in the ocean - a fantastic overall body workout which feels way different from workouts done on land, but offers many of (and some extra) benefits as well.
- Walking, climbing and running stairs has become a rather important part of my routine - and thats a good thing!!
- The heavy bag has become a part of my routine, and I'm getting some fantastic workouts in on it. Stay tuned for further details on that one.
And more, but thats a brief synopsis. The important thing to note is that I'm still getting my workouts in despite being real pressed for time - and if your in the same situation as I am - so should YOU. Something else to note as well is that I'm not forgetting my old routines - not by a long shot. But, adding something new into your routine once in a while spices things up, keeps it interesting, and is usually always a good thing provided you stick with it for a period of time.
Anyway, more to follow, so much more to share with you - but that's it for now. Until next time, take care - and if your working out today, make it an awesome one!
