FO­CUS ON THE JOUR­NEY

Webb likes to be­gin her work­out be­fore she even gets there. Some of her favourite ways to get in ex­tra ex­er­cise are to bike to a set of stairs in her neigh­bour­hood for a stair work­out, or run to an out­door gym or park for body­weight train­ing.

ADD A MEDICINE BALL

Us­ing a fit­ness ball or medicine ball can shake up a rou­tine your body has got­ten used to. Try hold­ing a medicine ball as you do lunges, or putting one hand on the ball as you do push-ups. “It’s a dif­fer­ent way to ac­ti­vate the mus­cles,” says Webb.

BRING ON THE BANDS

Elas­tic bands come in all dif­fer­ent ten­sions and since they’re small and light­weight, it’s easy to carry one with you and do your work­out any­where. Cre­ate re­sis­tance for bi­cep curls by step­ping on a band or wrap one around a tree to do up­right rows.
