Get sweaty with this new year workout, ideal for exercising all the major muscle groups.
This workout is all about learning how to use your own body weight for a killer full body workout, including all your favs – crunches, push ups, and of course, squats. At Fernwood, we love the squat rack and leg press, but we equally enjoy workouts that involve using the strength and resistance of our own body.
If you have taken some time away from training over the holidays, remember to ease back into your workouts slowly, taking care to listen to your body and stopping to rest whenever you need it to avoid injury and burnout.
Always remember to warm up your body before you start a workout, and cool down at the end. Both the warm up and cool down should be at least 5 minutes each. If you’re not sure what exercises and stretches are best, chat to a Fernwood trainer in club.
We always recommend working with a personal trainer when switching up your workout, returning to training after an injury, increasing weights or intensity of your workouts, and for best practice advice on correct form, technique and posture
