Gym Phase 1 - Foundation

We have a lengthy warm up to mobilise the joints and loosen the muscles before we jump into a little skipping and a few sets of the "runners lunge" to really fire up those gluts and get you thinking about your alignment (knee to little toe, don't forget). Next up is a superset alternating between leg press (aim to build up to 1 x bodyweight) and calf raises on the leg press, don't get up. Your second superset is some kettlebell deadlifts to nail the movement before phase 2 and some pirate squats, give them a go and you will see where that name came from. Finally, there are a couple of feet-up exercises to fill in any gaps and engage that core. When you get restless, test your strength to access phase 2.
