Exercise routine to do at home :)

In a perfect world it is ideal to complete 30-60 minutes of exercise every day, however the reality is the the world isn't perfect and this is often very difficult. I recommend trying to exercise at least 4 days each week as a compromise. 

Given you might only be able to get to 1-2 Active Farmer group fitness classes each week you could try 2 - 3 additional exercise routines at home to make you 4 days of exercise per week.

This week I have put together an exercise routine that you can do at home and all you will need is a yoga mat or towel, some water and some upbeat tunes. You will need to allow 35 minutes to complete the work out. 

Warm up: 5 minutes of running or walking and some active stretches of your choice (such as twisting, hamstring swings). 

Circuit 1: 6 minutes

  • 30 seconds of squat jumps
  • 30 seconds squat hold
  • 30 seconds squat pulses
  • 30 seconds of push-ups
  • Repeat 3 times
  • For an extra challenge grab a weight to hold during the squat holds and pulses

One minute break

Circuit 2: 7.5 minutes

  • 30 seconds of lunge jumps
  • 30 seconds left leg hold
  • 30 seconds right leg hold
  • 60 seconds of plank
  • Repeat 3 times
  • For an extra challenge grab a weight to hold during the lunge hold

One minute break

Circuit 3: 7.5 minutes

  • 30 second of sumo squat jumps ( jumping legs from hip width into a sumo squat option - legs 1.5 x hip width apart with toes pointing outwards)
  • 30 seconds sumo squat hold
  • 30 seconds sumo squat pulses
  • 30 seconds mountain climbers
  • 30 seconds push-ups
  • Repeat 3 times
  • For an extra challenge grab a weight to hold during the lunge hold

Cool Down: 5 minutes

  • Slow walking and deep breathing by raising arms up and down slowly - 3 minutes
  • Stretching - 3 minutes with 20 seconds on each stretch

Enjoy!!
