Do you vary your walking routine? Last week, my column was about staying injury-free while…
It is an active recovery week, here at Workplace Workouts. Four exercises, in your lounge room. We will be focussing on stability, Pilates and mobility (with two easy strength days).
Have you been following along with the workouts?
Each day throughout lockdown, we have been encouraging you to get up and move, and do the Workplace Workout (WPW) routine.
We really stepped it up last week, with more exercises, increased resistance, and added at-home equipment—which is why this week we have a slightly easier week.
An active recovery week means we keep moving, however, we reduce the load (resistance), perform lower-intensity exercises and increase the time between sets.
We have a simple structure for this week’s Workplace Workout:
Monday: Lower Limb Strength (tick!)
Tuesday: Hip stability—“Pandemic Pilates”—(today!)
Wednesday: Hip mobility and flexibility
Thursday: Upper Limb Strength (with reduced heart rate)
Friday: Postural/lumbar stability – Pandemic Pilates.
Here’s today’s workout.
Hip Stability Workout
1) Bridge, with one leg raised
2) Side lying hip circles
3) Side plank and single leg lift
4) Pretzel stretch (long 2-4 min hold)
