Week 12 – A training update from Paul

Progress is continuing.  Still hitting and missing with regularity of training but i believe I'm making improvements.  This Tuesday, I will have a check in with Master Tyler where we will run the same tests that we ran when I started this.  However, I'm pretty sure there's been improvement, just not as much as

Week 8 – Working, not working and what’s new

Its been a while since my last post.  the only reason for that is that I had really nothing new to report.  But now I do. When I started this, I always wanted to be 100% honest...even if things weren't going as well as I'd like. So here's where its at: Working Motivation is

Week 5 – Progress and changes

Its been a couple of weeks since my last post due to a minor illness.  However, training is now full steam ahead.  But due to  daylight saving changes, am finding that energy early in the morning is quite low.  In addition, to play a bit of catch up I've had to make some changes:

Week 2.5 check in – a bit of context

It's occurred to me after speaking with a couple of people that read my rambling posts, that whilst the blogs were coming through to Facebook, the original page that I posted wasn't.  So if you are wondering what this is all about, go here: http://www.chinadragon.com.au/blog/physical-conditioning-via-traditional-chinese-methods/ Onto the update.  I never thought I'd say this,

Week 2 – Hmmmm

Got off to a pretty good start, activities are as follows: When I jumped on the scales to see what was going on, the result was: Considering on the 9th of Jan I was 73.1kg, something has gone a little wrong. So this week, I'm going to be focusing on food and water intake

Check in

Week 1.5 check in Observations so far.  Having a morning routine is brilliant!  But what is really making it work is having the evening routine to setup the morning one.  I've tried to make a morning routine so many times before and gone into it with good intentions, but am so diabolically rubbish

Conditioning via Traditional Chinese Methods -Here we go!

Week one: My approach is going to be simple. Change lots of small things and fail often.  What I mean is instead of starting out week one…falling over on Tuesday and saying to myself "ill just get through to next Sunday and start over”, I want to make the cycle shorter.  So I'll be
