Get ready to stretch, sweat and smile! 

There’s something amazing about the way moving our bodies can help us instantly feel better. Sometimes, all it takes is an active session to shift our mood or boost our energy levels. As the old saying goes – movement is medicine. Best of all, we can all enjoy the benefits of movement and activity whether we’re at home, at the park or at the gym. To help you make the most of your next workout, we’ve shared some of our favourite physical activities this season – as brought to us by master personal trainer and performance nutrition coach, Lauren Irvine. Before you get started, just be sure to stretch and only do what feels within your fitness level.

  • For the gym go getter

    “For a full body resistance training workout that works all the major muscle groups, perform 8-12 reps of each exercise and aim to increase weight each set. Slow the movements down and think about creating as much mind-muscle connection as possible to make each rep count.”

    SET 1:
    – Barbell squats
    – Bent over dumbbell rows

    45 seconds rest. Repeat 3-4 times.

     SET 2:
    – Barbell romanian deadlifts
    – Incline push ups

    45 seconds rest. Repeat 3-4 times.

    SET 3
    – Walking dumbbell lunges
    – Standing overhead dumbbell press

    45 seconds rest. Repeat 3-4 times

  • Cheeky homebody circuit

    “All you’ll need for this is a pair of dumbbells and your favourite playlist! Perform 45 seconds of each exercise with 15 seconds of rest in between.”

    CIRCUIT
    – Sumo squats
    – Renegade rows
    – Alternating reverse lunges
    – Bicep curl to overhead press
    – Romanian deadlifts
    – Floor chest press

    60 seconds rest. Repeat circuit 4-5 times.

  • Winter sweat sesh

    “No equipment? No problem! This high intensity bodyweight workout will have you warm in no time while improving your cardiovascular endurance. Perform each movement at a maximum intensity for 20 seconds. Rest for 10 seconds before moving onto the next exercise.”
