How to exercise – corona style!
With the extreme change in our ability to get out and about to maintain our fitness, “thinking outside the gym” has never been more crucial.
Not being able to attend that Zumba class, go for a swim or play football with friends doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t be fitting regular exercise into the new daily routines – indeed Government guidelines recommend that we undertake some exercise out of doors each day, whilst maintaining the appropriate social distancing.
There are plenty of options open to us all but we will start with the simplest – going for a walk.
You will need to go further and faster for the maximum benefit – dawdling round the block is not going to make a difference. Try to aim for around 4 miles per hour to keep the heart rate moderately elevated and walk as far as you can – several miles are ideal. This isn’t going to always be possible so make this just one part of your “Exercise Mix” for the week and combine with some of our other suggestions.
