Ready to hop, skip and jump into the long weekends this month? These workouts are fun, family-friendly and will help burn off those chocolate calories.
This Easter family-friendly workout is best done on a large space of lawn. You will need to lay down some towels for the floor work. Embrace your inner and visualise all the hard work a stealthy rabbit would need to do, in order to hide eggs without being caught.
- Skipping warm-up:
Skip on the spot, lifting both feet at once, for one minute to warm the body up (you can do this with or without a skipping rope).
- One-leg hop:
Hop on one leg ten paces and back again and then switch legs and repeat on the other side. Do this three times.
- Bunny ups:
Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Bend your knees slightly and put your hands on your thighs. Then, jump straight upwards, pushing your arms up into the air above your head and elongating your body. Land softly with bent knees, return to the start position. Do this 10 times.
- Side-to-side jumps:
Start standing and bend your knees just before you start your jump. Keeping your feet together, push up through your heels and jump upwards and to the right. Land softly with your knees bent, and then jump up and to the left. Do this 10 times each side.
- Drop the eggs:
A twist on touch-the-floor running drill, this workout move requires a bit of space and some markers (you can use bushes or trees in the garden too). Start from the centre of the garden and touch the floor, then run to a designated tree or bush and touch the floor and back to the centre, touching the floor again. Repeat, running and touching down at different points in the garden.
