You’ll have noticed we’ve increased the difficulty rating on the boot camp #adventabs exercise over the past few days. If you’ve been following from Day 1 – and doing everything we suggest – then you’ll be more than up to the challenge, and you’ll be well on your way to a strong core that’ll see you through December and ready to get back ‘on it’ properly in January.
If not, of course you can do these exercises any time – we have designed all the exercise so they need no equipment, are easy to do, and can be done in short, sharp bursts.
Today, we are bringing the last few exercises together into a longer routine. Do what you can, and refer back to our previous blog posts if you need some pointers or reminders of how to carry them out.
