If the colder days and darker nights are dis­cour­ag­ing you from get­ting ac­tive out­doors, try these three ways to ex­er­cise in your liv­ing room • Start with a gen­tle warm up that works the mus­cles you’re about to use. Per­form ex­er­cises care­fully and with con­trol to avoid in­jury. •

Make the most of ad breaks to per­fect ba­sic moves such as squats, lunges, press-ups, moun­tain climbers and sit-ups. • Get cre­ative with your ‘equip­ment’ – soup cans dou­ble up as light weights, a pair of tights can be used as a re­sis­tance band, and a non-slip chair is ideal for tri­cep dips.

Try the NHS Strength & Flex pod­cast or our very own 10-minute work­out for be­gin­ners – visit bbc­good­food.com/ex­er­cise­for-free to find out more.
