#EOTWellbeing: Workout at home

#EOTWellbeing: Workout with Sandy Mitchell

We all need to keep active during this period of uncertainty, as we follow the Government advice and are at home for prolonged periods of time. Keeping fit and relaxation techniques are useful to help you remain calm and keep moving while working from home.

That’s why, our team have created some easy to follow home workouts for all levels, to keep you active and get the endorphins flowing.

This week, Head of Community Growth, Sandy Mitchell (who just so happens to lead our staff circuits sessions twice a week), has designed a quick HIIT workout for all levels, so read the instructions below or simply watch how it’s done!

All you need is: a mat, water, HIIT app (you can download an interval timer from Google Play or the App Store).

This 9-move circuit is designed for you to complete as many reps as possible in 30 seconds, with no rest between intervals. Once each set is complete, have a 30 second rest and repeat 5 times. Expect to work hard and feel the burn!

(For an easier level – try a 10 second rest between intervals and reduce to 3 sets).

  • Push ups (easier tip – try a push up on knees move)
  • Squat to jump squat (easier tip – simply squat)
  • Leg raises
  • Shoulder taps
  • Plank leg lifts
  • Plank dips
  • Lunge to kick (30 second per leg)

WATCH:

Keep your eyes peeled for Yoga and Meditation tips from our resident yogi, Hollie Costigan, a qualified Yoga instructor, and other top tips from our cricketers on alternative home workouts for you to try if you want to really push yourself.

And if you’ve never tried either of these, make the most of your morning, lunchtime or evening and try something new, while staying fit.
