OFFICE-PROOF YOUR BODY
6 moves to undo the damage
It’s not too late to build a leaner, stronger body for the beach – but unless your only holiday plan is to pound daiquiries on a lounger, it’s worth making yourself more functional in the process. Performance coach Chris Burgess has devised a workout that’ll do all that with nothing but a rucksack and a chair. Feel the burn now and enjoy the sun, surf and Soleros later.
Do each move in turn, resting as little as possible. Then rest for a minute and repeat. Do the whole circuit a total of three times.
REPS 6 EACH SIDE
‘This is the ultimate core builder,’ says Burgess, ‘but it also lays a solid foundation for a strong body.’ Fill a rucksack with something appropriately heavy, then heft it onto one shoulder as you go from lying to standing and back again. Complete all the reps on one side, then switch.
