Very inspiring thank you. It does just come down to practice. I get despondent and unsure sometimes then I look at my muscles. Since lockdown I’ve been doing a bit of exercise most days. Sometimes I veg out and don’t bother and sometimes I go for it. But I average a few minutes every day. My muscles have grown, my body has changed shape. At no point did my muscles or body have an argument with me about the benefits of change. Neither did I have to find the faith to believe in them. They never deserted me, went on strike or threw a moody. They just improved because of consistent effort. Because that’s the natural outcome of practice.
