Get the endorphins flowing
We all need to keep active during this period of uncertainty, as we follow the Government advice and are at home for prolonged periods of time. Keeping fit and relaxation techniques are useful to help you remain calm and keep moving while working from home.
That’s why our team at Emirates Old Trafford has created some easy to follow home workouts for all levels, to keep you active and get the endorphins flowing.
In this workout, head of community growth, Sandy Mitchell – who also leads our staff circuits sessions twice a week - has designed a quick HIIT workout for all levels, so read the instructions below or simply watch how it’s done!
All you need is a mat, water, HIIT app (you can download an interval timer from Google Play or the App Store).
This 9-move circuit is designed for you to complete as many reps as possible in 30 seconds, with no rest between intervals. Once each set is complete, have a 30-second rest and repeat 5 times. Expect to work hard and feel the burn!
(For an easier level – try a 10-second rest between intervals and reduce to 3 sets).
· Push-ups (easier tip – try a push up on knees move)
· Squat to jump squat (easier tip – simply squat)
· Leg raises
· Shoulder taps
· Plank leg lifts
· Plank dips
· Lunge to kick (30 seconds per leg)
