Finn ‘helps’ Daddy exercise in the garden, at least once a week. Watching him train with Liam makes me laugh every time, it never gets old!


  • Medicine ball for Liam, Finn uses a heavy dog toy equivalent


SAFETY: I would recommend wearing proper footwear rather than crocs. As you can see they made Finn a bit unsteady.

Warming up by running on the spot

Twisting with the medicine ball

Star jumps

Push ups

Squats with the medicine ball

NB. We don’t have a children’s medicine ball so Finn is using a dog toy. Use whatever household items are available to you.

Jumping lunges

More press-ups
