April 2020 has seen some interesting new ways of doing things, one of them is home exercise. Since the gym is closed I am doing a couple of live streamed classes. The problem is that the trainer often has to watch me do things both on the floor and standing up. Normal tablet stands are designed to face upward so before a set of sit-ups there is always a mad scramble to adjust the tablet downwards. I also recently became the proud owner of the biggest exercise ball in the shop – because it was the only one left. It takes up a huge amount of space and is always mysteriously going on walkabout by itself.
The solution to my training issues came in the form of a very rickety stool with a broken a leg. I don’t know the first thing about woodwork but thought that even I could salvage this one and repurpose it.
