Let’s take a moment to fully appreciate the significance of this week. Take a breath and compose yourself. School starts back again this week! Yeeeesssss… finally! I can hear a mixture of euphoria and mass sighs of relief. Yes yes I know you love your kids and all the time you spend together is precious. But, 6 weeks plus is a long time hearing “I’m bored”, “What’s for lunch”, “What’s for dinner”, “I’m hungry”. True I don’t have children yet, so my understanding of their behaviour is based largely on animal planet and viewing them as pack animals that need to be taken care of until the day they grow up, overthrow the alpha, start their own pack, and the process repeats. Anyway, schools back and life returns to it’s status quo (along with vengence seeking rush hour traffic). And as the kids return to school, so too must you return to fitness and exercise. No longer are holidays and kids activities excuses to slack off or avoid your workout. It’s time to look after yourselves again. And Jordan Burns PT has just the circuit to get you back into the swing of things.
50 STAR JUMPS
50 PLANK TOE TOUCHES
10 SIDE PLANK DIPS (each side)
50 MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS
15 JUMP SQUATS
15 PRESS UPS
20 ALTERNATING LUNGES
Perform the required amount of repititions for each exercise before moving on to the next. Minimal break in between exercises. Once all exercises are completed take a 2 minute recovery. It’s lovely to have a bit of time to yourself again isn’t it?! If the answers yes, repeat. If the answers no, repeat. Aim for 4 or 5 rounds.
Please note that you don’t have to be a parent to ‘enjoy’ this circuit. Really it’s got nothing to do with kids or school – I’m just using ‘back to school’ as a shameless way of drawing attention to Jordan’s fantastic bodyweight circuit.
