Fierce February - Week 4 STRENGTH & CONDITIONING

January is over and that’s the time when lots of people (myself included!) dip in motivation to keep moving. So to combat that we’re introducing ’Fierce February’ to keep us fired up and focused for the month ahead!

Each week we’ll be concentrating on combating a different part of the body so that by the end of the month we’re feeling strong and powerful as we head into spring!

This week is about all over strength and conditioning and here’s what we’re encouraging you to do. You can do as many of these suggestions as you like and in any order you fancy, everything is suitable for all abilities and you work at your own pace:

  • Join for our online live group session which happens every Tuesday at 7pm - this week we’ll run through upper body focused exercises together by the power of zoom, details here.

  • For strength and conditioning the core is really important! Some of you will know the lovely Sarah Place (former leader of GoodGym Greenwich and also temporary leader of GoodGym Ealing way back when!), well now she's a big YouTube star and has a great 10 minute core conditioning routine for us to try. Give it a go by clicking here.

  • If like me you like running off road then give this 15 minute routine a go to help strengthen those key muscles for trail running. And if you don't like getting muddy (what's wrong with you?!) but these will also help with stronger road running too!

  • Sometimes bigger isn't always better and the small precise movements in pilates provide excellent conditioning for runners! Here's a 15 minute routine for you to try this week.

  • For this one you'll need a resistance band, if there's one bit of equipment I recommend it's this! This video will show you 6 great conditioning moves to do with a resistance band.

Let us know how you get on in the comments below or in our WhatsApp group.

You can also check out the all session listings for future weeks and other sessions here.

A resistance band is also my favourite piece of equipment; so portable and versatile! Definitely need to work on my stability for trail running more though.
