1. Press-up PR

Press ups are a game changer for strength, and the benefits of doing them spill over to other compound movements. Why not use this time to practice and build on your personal records.

2. Drink more water

The NHS recommends drinking between 6-8 glasses a day. If you often forget to hydrate, you could focus on increasing your water intake by a cup a day.

3. Add more veggies

It might be hard to get the NHS recommended daily diet of 1/3 fruit and vegetables at this time. If you can, have fruit as a snack during the day, or add extra vegetables to a meal. If you can’t get hold of fresh produce, tinned fruit and veg count too.

4. Increase your steps

It's recommended we get around 10,000 steps a day which can be challenging, especially now. To increase your steps try going a little further on your daily walk, (while social distancing), or by doing a few laps up and down the stairs.

5. Practice yoga

To help balance out your training, why not try out some yoga and stretching? Gentler movements count towards your fitness goals too.
