Home Workout No. 1

As we are all now staying at home we thought we would share some exercises that you can do in the comfort of your own home. Also featuring Brodie the dog!

Star Jumps 3  x 30 seconds
Think school PE! Stand tall with your arms buy your side and knees slightly bent. Jump up, extending your arms and legs out into a star shape in the air. Land softly, with your knees together and hands by your side. 

Push Ups 3 x 10
Start in the high plank position with hands shoulder width apart, lower yourself to the floor and push yourself up. Aim to have your elbows no greater than 45 degrees out from your body. Inhale as you go down and exhale as you push yourself up.

Tricep Dips 3 x 10
The further your feet ae from the chair, the harder the movement. Grip the chair with your hands and lower yourself until your elbows are bent between 45 and 90 degrees. then push yourself up to your starting position.

Bodyweight Squats 3 x 12
Start with your feet shoulder width apart and hold your hands straight out in front of you. Lower your body until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Pause, then return to the starting position. Repeat

Leg Raises. 3 x 12
Lie on your back, legs straight and together. Keep your legs straight and lift them up towards the ceiling, aim to get them to 90 degrees and then slowly lower your legs back down till they're just above the floor. Hold for a moment and raise your legs back up. Repeat.

Hip Thrusts 3 x 12
Start by laying down with your back on the floor, then draw your feet in towards your hips, feet flat to the floor, shins vertical. Rest your arms on the floor at your sides. Push your feet into the floor and then push your hips up until they align with your shoulders and knees. From that position, lower your hips back to the floor and repeat the movement by raising and lowering them.
