Keeping active and mobile may prove difficult for some during social isolation and we want to help.

Our National Partnerships Manager Anthony Moore is a physiotherapist (and a former Personal Trainer) and he’s created a series of five gentle exercises, all aimed at supporting mobility, for you to master.

We’re posting one exercise a week, so you’ve got time to master each one, so make sure you follow along by liking our page. Start with 10 reps and try to build up to 3 x 10 reps per day (breakfast, lunch, just before dinner) by the end of the week.

GENTLE SQUAT

  • Stand behind a chair.
  • Reach your hands forward onto the backrest.
  • Bend both knees into a squatting position, allowing your hand to slide over the backrest.
  • Push through your legs and return to standing.
  • Repeat
  • Return to the starting position.

Disclaimer: If you have been inactive for a while, have heart disease, or if you have other major health problems please check with your doctor before following these exercises.
