I like to share my workouts with you so you know I’m doing my bit. I love training with weights. Single sided work is so important to work on imbalances and even out the strength on both sides of the body. Warm up fully with my mobility warm up video. Sets 5 Reps 10/10 Step ups Kettlebell snatch  This works strength, balance, coordination, power & cardiovascular.  Only try this if you’ve been taught to do these moves by a professional trainer. https://youtu.be/cyG9lbxULeI

We are all aware we need to think more about our activity as our lifestyles are becoming more and more sedenatray, so how do we make sure we get enough movement each day? Whether you work at home or in an office or are a stay at home parent or all of those things, being indoors sitting for long periods of time is not going to help your physical or menatal health. We have to think about movement now, where as before it would be in our normal everyday lifestyle. How can we move the body more naturally and daily? Wake up and do some gentle stretching and yoga. Walk or cycle to work if possible. Get out for a nice brisk walk each day if you are at home or at lunchtime. If you have to drive then park further away and

Sometimes you feel a little tired 😴 and you just want to move your body gently. We had a really #active #bankholiday and I felt quite #tired today. I thought I’d be full of #energy  but the busy weekend must of taken more out of me than I thought so just some #stretching and #mobility today.

More kettlebell fun for me. Love the strength you feel chucking these bad boys around. These moves are great for a full body workout, all the power and strength you would get from lifting weights with an added raised heart rate through the explosive movements. ONLY try this workout if you have been trained by a professional (Personal Trainer) (me) to use them and know the moves.  Sets 4-6 15 Double Kettlebell Swings 15 Double Kettlebell Front Rack Squat 10/10 Kettlebell Windmill  12/12 Double Kettlebell Split Squat 10/10 Kettlebell Snatch Rest 60sec between sets.  Enjoy. https://youtu.be/bkNI9-nguv0
