Make your own workout routine

  • Use your favourite exercise activities to make up your own personalised exercise routine.
  • This could range from as little as 5 minutes or 30 minutes and can be done as many times a week as you like. Remember to progress at a pace you feel comfortable at and take rest days to help you recover.
