Home Fitness Whilst Isolating
During these uncertain times it is important to #StayFit #StayHealthy and #StayHome.
Only being able to leave the house once a day for exercise should not limit our ability to exercise.
Below are a number of exercises that can be completed from the comfort of your front room to supplement your exercise regime.
It is imperative to begin every session of Physical Training with a good warm up.
This is made up of three phases with the following aims.
Follow the video below as it guides you through these.
- Body temperature
- Heart rate
- Respiration rate
- Blood flow
- Joint fluid viscosity
2. Activate and mobilise
- Activate key muscle groups

Week 1 - Session 1 - Conditioning Workout
