Overweight I am slightly overweight

Carrying extra weight shifts your centre of gravity and can put strain on your muscles. If you haven’t exercised for some time, start slow and gradually build up as you gain strength. Keep up your mobility, build your strength and co-ordination, and regularly do stamina exercises.
Here’s our recommended training program:

Mobility
  • Thoracic/lumbar stretch
  • Lower back stretch
  • Hamstring stretch
  • Pelvic/lumbar stretch
  • Side stretch
  • Inner thigh muscles
Strength
  •  Hip rolls
  • Chair crunch
  • One-leg pelvic raise
  •  Kneeling crunch
Coordination
  •  Towel balance
  • Yoga tree pose
  •  Exercise ball balance
Stamina
  • Walking
  • Swimming
  • Stationary bicycle
