Introducing The Daily Drop-in: Our daily pick of the best tools and articles to help you care for yourself during lockdown.
When you exercise your body releases chemicals called endorphins, which make you feel happier and more energised. That’s why the best thing you can do while staying at home is to make time to exercise daily.
Burpees (or squat thrusts) are one of the best full-body exercises you can do at home - they require little space, no equipment, and can be adjusted to suit your fitness level.
To get a quick but effective home workout, just do 2 sets of 15 to 24 reps.*
Here’s how to do a burpee.
*Only exercise if you have no symptoms and/or if a doctor has told you it’s safe to do so.
Our Chief Medical Officer, Prof. Dr Maureen Baker, is ready to help. Just drop your comment into our latest Facebook post. She'll pick the best question of the day and post a reply. #askMaureen
