Lockdown Legs with Gemma Howell

Judo champion and European Bronze Medallist Gemma Howell has competed in numerous European and World Championships. Having represented Great Britain at the London Olympics in 2012, she is now preparing for Tokyo.

This week, Gemma is leading us through a lower-body workout. All you need is a chair and some cushions.

Quick tip from Gemma -  Routine

With all the COVID-19 uncertainty, it’s easy to feel out of control. But we can at least try to control how we spend our day. Setting a routine can be a really helpful way to define and split your day, give you a sense of control, and help you achieve your daily tasks and goals. A top tip is to use your diary to schedule a task as an appointment that you can’t miss. As Gemma suggests in her video, she trains every day at 10am and enlisting a friend or family member as a training partner can help you stick to your schedule (children and work allowing!). You might find it easier together, #wecandothis.
