Home Workout w/ Sky Spa

Hollie and Dan at Sky Spa Wellness Centre on Barry High Street have 8 key exercises that will help keep you active and look after your wellbeing whilst you stay at home.



Try them out on your own or get the whole family together and add a bit of competition to your day… if you dare!

Squats

  • Keep your weight through heels

  • Keep your arms shoulder high

  • Focus on getting your hips as low as possible.

  • Strengthens legs and improves your mobility

Reverse lunge twist

  • From a standing position, take a step back with 1 leg

  • Keep your weight through the heels of your front foot and position your back knee slightly off the floor.

  • Look ahead and keep your eyes up and repeat alternating on each leg.

  • Helps improve balance and hip mobility.

  • Hold a household weight like a plant pot or large bottle of water to challenge yourself.


Angled press up

  • Place your hands on an inclined platform such as a wall, table or sofa.

  • Keeping your body straight bring your chest towards the platform by bending your elbows and press away


This will help to straighten your triceps, chest and core. To make this harder try normal press ups from the floor.


Hip thrusts

  • Lay on your back, bend your knees so that your feet are flat on the floor.

  • Drive your hips up into the air as high as you can with your feet and shoulders on the ground.

This will help to stretch your hip and strengthen your glutes and hamstrings.

Hold a weight over your hips to make the exercise a little bit harder.


To ensure that you are getting fitter and healthier try to improve each and every day by doing extra repetitions or making each exercise a little bit harder each time.

Plank

  • Facing downwards focus on keeping your weight through your toes and elbows

  • Keep your bum down and squeeze your abs throughout.

  • Try and hold that position for as long as you can.


This is a great overall core strengthening exercise. If you want an extra challenge try moving your legs together and apart whilst holding the plank.
