We are lucky that most of our winter days here in the Northern Rivers region are nice and sunny. Though mornings might have a chill, so let us warm you up…

Favorite winter warmer exercises:

Lunging step back
– any squatting motions are working the big muscle groups in our legs, thus warming for the body – incorporating the Magic Circle is working our upper body for shoulder girdle strength

– a full body exercise, requiring core and strength in upper limbs for weight bearing
– easier variations to the full plank, can be kneeling plank, hands on a platform higher than your feet or start standing with hands pushing into a wall
– work harder with single leg lifts and/or push up arms

Side balance
– strong core stability work and upper limbs weight bearing
– just hold and breathe or add body rotation or single leg kicks
