The Cotswold School Wellness Day 2023
Guide to Workouts
Next, move on to the simple band workout which is explained in the video but once you have the hang of it, you can work through it at your own pace. You could set up a workout timer (such as Tabata Pro) to time each exercise and rest interval.
The dead bug move is a great stomach and back strengthener which is fully explained in the video and can be done at your own pace once you are familiar with it.
Round off with a stretch for the major muscle groups.
A workout timer (such as Tabata Pro) can help to vary your sessions. To make a workout easier, increase the amount of rest time you have in between each exercise, or between each set of exercises. To make it harder, reduce your rest time and/or increase the length of time you spend on the exercise to do more repetitions. You could also replace the resistance band with a pair of hand weights.
To find something more challenging, take a look at this six exercise interval workout which is a mix of resistance and aerobic moves. Get to know the moves from the video then work through them for a second or third round.
Here you will find videos explaining good technique for the squat and the lunge.
