PCWW Day 3: Thoroughly Balanced Thursday

The third day of the Post Christmas Workout Week is going to bring the pace back down a notch and focus on balance - these exercises should work your legs and hips and will really test your core strength!

The beginning of the video explains the stances that can be used when trying balance exercises, so choose the stance that challenges you the most but which you can still (just about) do. You will need to watch the video to get a proper explanation of each exercise which are as follows:

Exercise 1 - Leaning with arms outstretched

Exercise 2 - Following your finger up, down, side to side

Exercise 3 - Forward to back leg swing

Exercise 4 - Side to side leg swing

Exercise 5 - Rotating leg swing

I suggest doing 10 reps of each exercise on each side and completing 3 sets of the whole routine. In order to enhance the workout and get your heart rate up a bit I would throw in a minute of cardio in between each set, like so:

Opening Interval: 1 minute jogging

Set 1: 10 reps left and 10 reps right of each exercise

Interval: 1 minute ‘can-can’ (as in show girl style - it’s Christmas time - enjoy yourself!)

Set 2: 10 reps left and 10 reps right of each exercise

Interval: 1 minute jumping jacks

Set 3: 10 reps left and 10 reps right of each exercise

Interval: 1 minute skipping
