Five exercises to get festival ready

24th May 2019

It’s that exciting time of the year again – festival season!

If you enjoy spending time with your friends and a good crowd surf, then we’re sure you’ll be attending one (or a few) festivals this year! Whether you need endurance, or the best photo angle - perform these workouts two to three times a week in preparation.

Endure the first three moves for 30 seconds, rest for 15 seconds, then repeat 3x.

Keep the rave going

Get your glow sticks at the ready and your wellies on - these pumping exercises will keep your endurance levels high. Don’t get left behind!

High-Knee Jump Rope

Pretend you’re holding an imaginary jumping rope in your hands.
Start to rotate your wrists – whilst running in place, powering your knees above your waistline.

Spiderman Climbers

Beginning in a strong plank position, with your hands under your shoulders and head, hips, and heels in a straight line, jump your right foot to your right hand.
Jump your right foot back to the starting position, simultaneously jumping your left foot out to the left hand – interchanging sides for every rep.

Get the best view

Lateral Jump, Vertical Jump

Feet together, jump laterally, swinging your arms for momentum, and land in your start position.
Jump straight up, raising your arms overhead and landing softly with the knees slightly bent.

The recovery

You’ve nearly reached the end of a successful festival. Which only means one thing – you might be a little sore and groggy.

Follow these two moves to stretch the neck and shoulders so that you’re revived for the final act.

Shoulder Stretch

Interlace your fingers behind your lower back with your palms together.
As you roll your shoulders back, straighten your arms and open up your chest.

Neck Stretches

Place your left forearm on your lower back with your palm facing out.
Lower your right ear toward your right shoulder and feel a stretch in your neck and upper back.
Use your right fingertips lightly pull your head further down toward your right shoulder - slowly release this stretch and repeat on the other side.
