We all know that sitting down for prolonged periods is extremely bad for our health. But as research has shown, small bursts of regular movement peppered throughout the day are far more beneficial to our bodies — and brains — than a single intense workout tacked on the end of eight hours of inactivity.
As a trainer and sports scientist with more than 30 years of experience helping people improve their fitness, health and mental wellbeing, my philosophy is always that a little can go a very long way. And it is this philosophy which is at the heart of the 30-day exercise plan I have devised for the Mail’s Big Health Kick.
My programme combines a carefully calculated series of gentle, yet effective, posture-enhancing mobility, stretching and lengthening exercises to build your strength and fitness, while also helping to reduce stress. The idea is to combine these with regular walks — short or long — to build a regular pattern where movement becomes a natural part of your day.
