With yet another lockdown upon us, there is very little hope of gyms opening up any time soon. Working from home and home schooling means a much more sedentary lifestyle as there is no nipping to the watercooler to stand and have a chat. You are not allowed to stray too far from home either making outdoor activities such as hiking or cycling a no go. Doctors and chiropractors across the nation are advising people to get up and move and do some exercise, even if it’s light, but to stay mobile as it is imperative to your health and mental wellbeing.
It is not really advisable to start stretching while wearing your work clothes so you really need to invest in some suitable sports wear. Superdry has a fantastic and affordable range of gym wear, if you use a Superdry voucher code you can save even more money.
Let’s start with the basics, a good sports bra that provides support is extremely important. The Running Moulded Bra from their gym collection is perfect for the more strenuous of activities.
