Ah that morning after exercise feeling. DOMS, stiffness, aching muscles. Getting moving will ease stiffness. Do sore muscles mean no workout? Here’s the lowdown
Plyometrics are very effective. I would add standing on the spot then jumping up tucking your knees up to your chest. A few of these finish me off!
Just tried box jumps. Great fun!
Squats are really all I need to make a difference. I used to do 100 a day, and the difference was amazing.
try living in a house with 3 floors. then you won't even need a stair climber! Saying that, it's enough just to run up and down your own stairs actually, and I used to do this in my younger days before I used the gym.
Hmmm, 3 minutes between Netflix episodes sounds good. But not sure I need an app to help me out.
350 workouts sounds great. This does sound quite new - is there a free trial available?
I love fitness apps! My problem is downloading too many then not being able to decide which to stick to.
now there's motivation - I'm in! always more fun with a bit of competition, great idea.
Hoorah, I like the sound of this very much. A bargain with the 25% off too!!
There seems to be something special about this 21 days. That's the same amount of time it takes to establish a new habit too.
Now push ups I can do, but pull ups are a different matter. i've never been able to and actually hate doing them. So I will actually try this adding on one a day thing, but starting with resistance bands as suggested. Another one who will be interested if it actually works!
A 21 day plan sounds quite doable and I like the idea of adding on one a day. But that's quite a quick time to strengthen up, it will be interesting to see if it actually works and I can keep up with increase in numbers.
I had to look up the lateral reach but I think I've got it - and it really does help. Especially after a day at the keyboard when I can't wait for my training session.
Personally I prefer to keep my flexibility exercise and weights/cardio separate. But each to their own.
I'm always a little sceptical of pricey stuff, but there may be a reason in this case. I bought some cheap bands and got a (literal) slap in the face!
I have an ongoing issue with belly fat and this motivated me to do more weight training. it definitely makes a difference along with going for my regular runs too.
This is something I have never bought and never felt I needed. but I didn't realise how cheap they were! Have now ordered the Belus booty bands.
I have to really shout the praises of kettlebells. They have transformed my weights workouts and helped me lose any loose areas from pretty much all over my body!
brilliant explanation! It had never occured to me (doh...) that the great thing about these is that what goes up doesn't need to come down. I shall join the queue for the stairclimber.
Nicky, you really should add specific shoulder exercises to your routine. Why don't you try it for a month and see what a difference you notice, then you can decide if it's worth continuing?
rotator cuff injury - wince! sadly really easy to do with bad exercise form. I've learned my lesson and work my shoulder muscles, correctly!
I workout my arms and always assumed my shoulders are getting a workout at the same time so I needn't bother with a separate shoulder workout. Is this not right?
I never think of training my calves but the workouts I do already seem to tackling them well enough. I guess it depends on the natural size of your calves already, as mine are pretty well-sized anyway!
