Challenge steppers are approaching the finish line

This week let’s celebrate how far we have all come.

As we approach the finish line, it is amazing to think we have travelled over 420,000 steps or approximately 320 kilometres.
This week enjoy the movement that you’ve brought into your daily routine.

This motivating quote is a great reminder:

"So often we become so focused on the finish line that we fail to enjoy the journey."

Dieter F. Uchtdorf.

Let’s enjoy this week (hopefully the weather isn’t as bad as predicted).

The end is near for the AUHC, and this week represents the easing of lockdown restrictions are eased for some of us. In line with the NSW Government reopening road map and the NSW Public Health Orders, adults and children 16+ years who are fully vaccinated will be able to head back to the gym and move around outside of your LGA.

WALKING TRACKS

This week, if you are eligible, head outside of your LGA for a walk for a change of scenery. Head to the beach, the ake or even the mountains to gather your daily steps.
Below are the different walking tracks we shared last week.

See what you can find:

STAY ACTIVE WORKOUTS

If you are still at home, let’s revisit some of our favourite workouts from the AUHC:
Let the instructors at The Forum keep you moving with the on-demand Stay Active workouts.

There are four options for you to choose from:

LOUNGE ROOM WORKOUTS

Are you short on time? How long do you have realistically have? This workout lets you choose how many rounds you complete within the timeframe that you have.

Is it 1 round, 2 rounds, or even maybe 3 rounds?

Try this out, complete each exercise for a total of 60 seconds:

  • Reverse lunge
  • Squat (add a jump for extra intensity)
  • Wall sit
  • Russian twist
  • Plank hold

To add some intensity, extend the time you complete each exercise to 90 seconds / 2 minutes.

Burpees are always a great little finisher to finish with a burn. See how many you can complete in 2 minutes.

DRIVEWAY WORKOUT

Exercise in your front yard and use your driveway to complete this workout. 5 exercises, you choose the rounds you complete.

45 seconds work, 15 second rest.  3 rounds = 15 minutes, 6 rounds = 30 minutes.

  • Walking Lunge
  • Plank
  • Squat Jump
  • Lying Leg Raise
  • Run to end of driveway and 5 burpees.

Be proud of yourself and your teams.

Have a great week. See you at the finish line.

 

Be safe. Be kind. Be patient.
