Fitness Newsletter 28 October

A list of current COMPLEMENTARY FITNESS Classes are on the NEWS PAGE of my website but I wanted to draw your attention to, and hope you’ll join us for a Spooky Halloween Circuit Training Workout on Wednesday 30 October.
Come and join us, there’s an option to dress up in your most spooky-est trick or treating outfit and to bring a pumpkin too – I can’t wait.
Also – there’s no class on Tuesday 5 November (Fitness Pilates) as the Large Hall is unavailable.


Health & Exercise
Focus on front squatting:
One of the biggest benefits you’ll receive from front squatting regularly is improving (or at least maintaining) your mobility through all the key joints: the ankles, knees and hips. Front squatting can help you build mobility, and are invaluable in getting you stronger in the glutes, quads and anterior core.

Initiate the front squat by sitting back slightly. The goal is to keep the spine neutral throughout and neutral means neutral – you don’t want to be hyper-extended through the lower back, and you don’t want to be flexed, either.

How deep should I squat? You should squat as deep as you can comfortably, while still allowing for good mechanics through the ankles, knees, hips and spine. Instead, I prefer to have someone squat slowly early-on, making sure to keep their spine in a neutral position throughout. As mobility improves and the core becomes more stable, squat depth should naturally improve with time. I like to maintain a neutral position between the foot, knee and hip. In other words, the foot, knee and hip should always be tracking and in-line with each other. – See more at:
