2.6 Challenge

If you fancy doing your bit to support charities whilst you are at home and have been inspired by many that have already done so then why don’t you click on the link to see if you can create your own challenge. It can be done by anyone of any age and the challenge is up to you.
The challenge was created in response to the London Marathon being postponed so the numbers 2 and 6 are clearly significant.
If you feel able please do send videos through to Marketing or tag the School into any of your Twitter/Instagram posts using #DeanCloseAtHome so that we can share and support your achievements.

WEEKLY EXERCISE PROGRAMME
For the main activity, you will need to assess your level before commencing and all exercises are easily found on “google” for clarity. As a general recommendation, if you typically find yourself in a C/D team please start at LEVEL 1. If you typically find yourself in an A/B team please start at LEVEL 2. Only progress through the levels once you can comfortably complete your current level for all weekly sessions. (The following 2 pages will provide clarity)Whilst many in our community feel well equipped to keep their physical and mental wellbeing in order, it may be useful to some to provide some sort of routine and guidance and as such weekly programmes will be provided to help you and your families along the way.

MOBILITY
Flexibility and mobility are an important part of health, fitness and every warm up! I have included a full body mobility flow that you can complete every day. It is a simple Series of exercises that will help with hip and spine health.

Aim to complete the following flow of exercises 6 times through. This should not take any longer than 10-15 minutes

Please refer to the boxes below for some sessions you can complete whilst you are at home with no equipment. Aim to complete both Activation and Landing sessions 2-4 times per week.

Each exercise has a range of repetitions (reps), so please select a range that is suitable to your current ability and try to progress your total reps each week. As a general recommendation, if you typically find yourself in a C/D team please start at LEVEL 1. If you typically find yourself in an A/B team please start at LEVEL 2. Only progress through the levels once you can comfortably complete your current level for all weekly sessions.

For the Aerobic or Sprint Sessions – During your time off it is important that you are staying active. As a recommendation, aiming for around 10,000 – 15,000 steps per day is a good target to give yourself!  Depending on your current situation, aim to complete 2-4 of the below sessions each week. If you typically find yourself in a C/D team please start at LEVEL 1. If you typically find yourself in an A/B team please start at LEVEL 2. Only progress through the levels once you can comfortably complete your current level for all weekly sessions.
