Do you vary your walking routine? Last week, my column was about staying injury-free while…
FriYAY is core day: five exercises, in your lounge room.
Next week we have a slightly different format for the Workplace Workouts (WPW)– four exercises, every weekday, from your lounge room.
We will be mixing up the strength, stability, Pilates and mobility (so a slightly easier week!)
Each day throughout lockdown, we have been encouraging you to get up and move, and do the WPW routine. We have really stepped it up this week: more exercises, increased resistance, and added at-home equipment. Which is why we have a slightly easier week next week.
If five exercises are too much for you, and you’ve just started joining us on the WPW journey, I’d recommend trying the earlier workouts from 2-3 weeks ago which are available on the HerCanberra website (ease your way into this new routine!). Click here to find them.
Here’s today’s workout.
1) Resisted pull to press in squat (*if you don’t have a band or dumbbells, grab some soup/ bean cans from the kitchen, juice from the fridge, or a full drink bottle)
2) Resisted lumbar side flexion
3) Plank—on stability ball
4) Reclined sit up twist feet down —with medicine ball
5) Side plank on knees with resisted hip abduction
