Welcome to the fourth session in our series of six Young People’s workouts. This class is all about working the muscles and joints in your legs and lower body to keep them strong and stable. This is really important as we spend a lot of time sitting down, not using our legs like we should be.
In this session there’s a short warm up, three blocks of work, and a cool down and stretch section. You will need a step or platform, a bottle of water and some space to exercise.
You can do this class as many times as you want – the more you do it the stronger you’ll get and the more energy you’ll have to do the things you love. Remember you should feel no pain when doing these exercises, so please stop if you do.
Stretch and mobilise your feet, legs and hips with this 20-minute session. For those suffering from lower body issues, you might want to try this class before your main exercise. If you have a foam roller grab it – but if not, you can skip that section and simply massage your legs instead.
