Workout of the month - April 2020

Training, April 01, 2020

This months session is all about strength and flexiblity. This workout is based around full body movements and a focus on core activities to really get you working hard!

This month we have a good focus on the things that you can do whilst locked inside.  This whole workout is designed to get you working relativley hard, whilst trying to keep it varied.  Don't underestimate the difficulty of this workout, it will get pretty difficult pretty quickly.

You can scale this workout to your own ability level by focussing on completing each exercise with good form and control, you will only complete what you can complete within the time limits, so the fitter you are the more you will do.
