Strength programme 1
Okay. We’re about to get started on our first strength program. Now strength programs are really important: not only do they make your body stronger, but they make your day-to-day life much easier.
If you’re working outside or on a hard surface, make sure you put down a couple of mats. Now you can grab a mat from any sporting store, or mats just like these from any camping or department store.
To get started just follow these steps:
Step 1: Start off with a warm-up exercise routine.
Step 2: It’s time to do the 2 minute stretch routine.
Step 3: Jump in - it's time to do the exercise programme. Choose one of the four programmes.
Step 4: Now begin the cool-down routine.
Step 5: Time to finish with the stretch routine.
Step 6: Congratulations you just found your 30 minutes of activity today.
