As we’re in the midst of yet another national lockdown, it is extremely easy to get lazy. We know this from personal experience. However, lack of exercise and an increase in comfort eating can have an adverse effect. It is not good for you, physically or mentally. Let’s put down the crisps and get some graft put in, together. I have banded a list together of 8 rather different workouts for you to try throughout this lockdown. I personally am debating between two… can you guess which ones?
