Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase. Just take the first step

— Martin Luther King Jr.

I’ve been interested in health and fitness for a while. I run semi-regularly with my partner, and before a concussion a few years ago, I used to regularly do strength and HIIT workouts.

However, lately I’ve been feeling flabby and uninspired. Combined with this, I have always had a vague dream of getting down to 55kg in my 20s. The end of my 20s are now fast approaching (I’m 28!), so I need to get it done now!

A few days ago, I had an idea to keep inspired with my workouts… What if, every day, I do a different workout? Legs one day, abs another, and strength on another. And what if I sourced those workouts from Google?

An idea was born!

So, let’s talk rules first. Each day I will do a different work out, starting on page one of Google with the search terms “at-home leg workout”, “at-home ab workout”, and “at-home arm workout”, and working through deeper into the workout pages.

For a page to qualify as a workout, it must contain a number of exercises, and must specify sets and/or reps.

I decided to start with a leg workout – leg exercises tend to be my favourite type of exercise, so I thought they’d provide an easy way for me to ease myself into the workouts.

For Day 1, I used Coach Mag’s leg workout. It involved 3 sets of 10 reps for each exercise. Here it is:

My favourite exercises were Squats, Good Mornings, Glute Bridges. However, I’ve got to say, the Pistol Squats were really killer.

I started out by doing 10 reps of each exercise, but then realised I could do things my way, so I just did 20 reps of each, to get everything ticked off.

However, I was extremely careful with keeping good form – I know bad form can quickly destroy your chances of working out through injury.

Tomorrow, I’ll weigh myself and measure myself, with the hope of looking back at the stats with a sense of pride, haha.

Till then – have an amazing day!
