During lockdown I’ve been trying to keep myself active by doing a daily outdoor walk in the evening and by doing short little home workout throughout the day. The home workouts are normally HIIT based and last no longer than 15-20 minutes. I like to stick to simple (but tough) exercises that can be done anywhere such as jump squats, press ups, burpees and planks!
At first I found lockdown difficult to adjust to as my normal daily routine was chucked out the window. I have found that going on my walks and doing these little workouts (even if I’m feeling lazy) has really boosted my overall mood, kept my fitness levels up and most importantly kept me sane throughout this strange time.
