It’s easy to fall into the habit of wasting hours a day watching Netflix or YouTube videos when we are stuck at home. Staying active is super essential to aid wellbeing and keep the synapses firing.
Home-based circuit training is an excellent way for children to stay active and interested in exercise. Set up a few exercise ‘stations’ around the backyard or inside your home.
A station could be as simple as:
- skipping rope
- running up and down stairs
- dance station
- high knees, or
- sprints to the clothesline, for example.
Modify the length and number of reps to suit the ability of your children.
How to complete a circuit:
Each person participating, starts on a different station and spends one minute at that station. They then move to the next station. Repeat the circuit 3 or 4 times. Factor a rest break between reps and have plenty of cool H2O on hand.
Exercise is much more enjoyable with music, so pump up the tunes and get moving!
Note: please be mindful when adding any weight training into the circuit.
