Welcome to the ”Outta Shape” blog

Great that you found your way to my blog. I am a 38-year-old father of four children who is well on his way to a better shape. In the blog, I’m writing about things mainly related to mobility and bodyweight training but also family life, barefoot running and intermittent fasting will be present often.

I’ve written this blog in Finnish for more than two years and now I’ll slowly start to translate those posts also in English. Also, every new article is coming in an English version. The reason I started to write this blog in the first place, was for my own motivation to overcome my bad conditioning. Over the years I had neglected my own well-being and got really out of shape. Now I’m not so out of shape anymore and this blog has evolved to be more than just my training diary. I’ve gained lots of knowledge in bodyweight- and mobility training and the view is not solely amateurish anymore.

Recovery The older you get, the more attention on the recovery is required. And of course, also a larger amount of training requires careful monitoring of recovery. I wrote earlier that I use HRV measurement (finnish only) as a tool for…
