This is a chance for us to chat together with new or regular Goodgymers and have a good chinwag. The great part of having an video call is they could be in Portugal, Sheffield, Swindon, Tewkesbury, London, Leeds etc but we can chat together.
Would you prefer to chat at the virtual park and play games or just on zoom? We can decide nearer the time and I'll let you know the link/check back here.
We're looking for forward to seeing you. Soon we can hopefully also have socials in real life wow!
We put on some steel toe overshoes and got to work. We helped to lift and shift 20 pallets of donated food - each pallet had one type of item on (baked beans, tinned meat, tinned fish, soup, spaghetti hoops, 10kg boxes of pasta, pasta sauce, curry paste, teabags etc) and our job was to put a specified number of cases of those particular items onto empty pallets in order to build up a pallet with mixed food items. The mixed pallets are then distrubuted within FareShare and other charities.
Welcome to Daniel who attended a GoodGym Community Mission for the first time (but has volunteered at FareShare before is was a pro!)
I started to write some lyrics to the tune of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air but I didn't have time to finish it. Here is what I have so far:
Now this is a story all about how, Six volunteers travelled across town , And I’d like to take a minute, Just sit right there, I’ll tell you how we became the GoodGymmers of FareShare
In a big warehouse on Winterstoke Road, We put on our masks and spent half of our day, Lifting, shifting and following rules, Helping a charity that distributes food, We’re just a few guys that like to do good, In our lovely Bristol, our neighbourhood , The Covid rules were strict but we didn’t get scared, Because we are the GoodGymmers of FareShare
Thanks for the great work everyone!
Professional athlete Kim Murray took us through a number of key strength training exercises to help us build a more robust runners frame.
We started with a warm up and then had three main sections of workouts. Each workout had 3 sets and each round increased in intensity.
Section 1 included glute bridges with heel raise and leg raises.
Section 2 included hamstring bridge and a split squat.
- Lastly, section 3 included 3 different exercises. The first worked on our core and hip flexors, the second a moving plank and the third worked on our upper back.
We finished with cool down stretches.
Well done to everyone who took part! Kim is on instagram and regularly posts great exercises on her account, so give her a follow; www.instagram.com/kimfitbath
