So, following on from last week’s blog high intensity workouts, here is an example high intensity workout that you can do in the gym, at home or in the park:
Duration: 30-40 minutes; Work: 50 seconds; Rest 10 seconds; 8 exercises in the set or round; Rest for 2 minutes between each round; repeat until the time is reached.
High knees (on the spot)
Squat with med ball throw
Press up to T (extended)
Bench/Ball bridge with bent arm pullover
Alternate lunge jumps with bicep curl
Plank with pelvic tilt
Please see the accompanying video for correct exercise technique.
Please include a warm up before starting, and cool down and stretch afterwards.
Please note these exercises are NOT intended for a new mum in their first year with baby.
If you are over 50, pregnant or have just had a baby, disabled or under 16 you should seek professional advice from a fitness professional before starting any exercise programme.
Top Tip: There are apps available to download that allow you to set your desired intervals to time your session for you so you don’t have to keep an eye on the clock and interrupt your workout.
I hope this has been helpful. If you have any questions about today’s content, please contact us here.
