As a die-hard Love Island fan, I jumped (see pic below) at the chance to learn a full body workout routine with my main man from Series 3. This is what happened when Marce met Mol (yep, on nickname terms now). My 12-year-old self would be SO proud. #seeyouatthecrosstrainer
1. THE SQUAT JUMP
What it works Quads and glutes.
How to Lower yourself into a squat position and spring back up into a vertical jump.
Top tip Aim for height in your jumps, and land as softly as you can.
2. THE RESISTANCE BAND BICEP CURL
What it works Biceps.
How to Step onto the band, arms by your side. Flex elbows to bring hands towards your shoulder. Lower your hands back down to your pockets.
Top tip Keep arms tucked in by ribs and palms facing shoulders.
3. THE LYING LEG RAISES
What it works Lower abdominals.
How to Grab your partner’s ankles, raise your legs up towards your partner, then lower them back gently towards the floor. Brace your abs during the lowering phase, so there’s no gap between your lower back and floor.
Top tip Push your lower back into the floor.
4. THE WEIGHTED LUNGE
What it works All the leg muscles.
How to Stand with two weights in your hands. Take a medium step forward with one leg and slowly lower yourself to the floor.
Top tip Concentrate on the lowering phase. Keep chest upright to prevent rounding the shoulders and back.
