Sam Wood's tips for nailing your lockdown exercise
Personal trainer Sam Wood’s tips for making the most of your outdoor exercise.
For those living under stage-four restrictions and limited to one hour of exercise outside the home a day – to be increased to two hours from 14 September – it pays to make the time count.
Celebrity personal trainer Sam Wood is in lockdown with his family in Melbourne and understands first-hand how vital it is to get up off the couch and out the door.
“There has never been a more important time to keep our immune system up, to keep our physical and mental health strong and get some fresh air, some vitamin D to boost our mood,” says Sam, founder of the 28 by Sam Wood online fitness program. “Of course we need to do it within the rules, but it is absolutely invaluable.”
Whatever exercise you do outside, remember to wear a mask or face covering at all times – unless you are physically exerting and it’s not practical or safe to wear one – although you do need to carry one with you. Here, Sam offers expert advice for all ages and fitness levels to get maximum benefit from their ‘hour (or two) of power’.
