Summer is nearly here (we hope!) and the time of year when most people feel they need to get healthier and in better shape. This is fresh advice in our fitness series from one of our in house personal trainers Caroline Gayton.
Ever since time began human beings have danced. Dance plays an important role in all cultures, notably as part of worship, celebration, courtship, recreation and entertainment. It is an expression of movement and movement is in every living thing.
Summer is just around the corner and the thought of revealing those wobbly bits can be very daunting for most women. But fear not! If you want to look good on the beach then follow the following exercises for 8 weeks, 4 times a week.
The workout is designed to help with losing weight and getting fit. It will help build lean muscle meaning you will look more toned, and it will increase your metabolism so you will burn more calories. Targeted areas are legs/bum, tummy, arms, shoulders and ‘bingo wings’.
I’ve also designed it so you don’t need any equipment – perfect for busy mums on the go who don’t have time to get to the gym.
Perform 1 set of each exercise one after the other, with brief rests between exercises. This will ensure you burn more calories (and it will be over sooner). Repeat the entire workout 3 times.
Warm up: 5 -10 min brisk walk (or marching/jogging on the spot if you can’t leave the house)
