25 minute circuit ⚡️⚡️
This might seem like I’ve just thrown together a bunch of random exercises but that isn’t the case. Every day, I pick an objective for that workout. Currently most of my workouts are based around return to running. Being an Accredited Exercise Physiologist, it means that we don’t prescribe exercises for the sake of it- every exercise needs to have a purpose and that’s how I structure my own programs- specific to my goal!!
So today I will put a short explanation next to each exercise as to why I included it in my circuit.
✅ 100 x Skips- CV fitness & weight transfer from leg to leg in preparation for running.
✅ 15 x BW Squats- strong glutes and quads are essential for running and can reduce your risk of injury. I will slowly begin to increase the load I use, but at the moment low load and higher reps is my approach.
✅ 8 x Burpees (no jump)- CV fitness, full body and agility aspect. Will again slowly progress this to include a jump.
✅ 12 x Lunges- lower limb control, stability and strength.
✅ 10 x O/H Press- upper body endurance and strength is important in running for arm swing and can impact on torso control. Our muscles also work in slings—> upper body, through our core to our lower body and we need muscle activation to be coordinated.
✅ 10 x Toe Taps- to focus on core stability and a relatively unstable position. Also lower limb proprioception, control and awareness by having to hold the limb up in ‘space’.
✅ 15 x Bridge with Heel Raise- strong glutes, some instability and ankle ROM and awareness.
