The park have installed a number of these temporary markings on the footpaths.
Please ensure to practice social distancing of at least 2m and respect your fellow park users.
Could all our athletes please note how important it is to keep at least 2m apart from other people if you are out running.
Please KEEP YOUR DISTANCE – this is a serious matter.
Stay in family groups where possible.
Could parents please stress this to their teenagers.
It’s important to get exercise but more important to keep well and help to keep everyone else well. This next week or two will determine how long the restrictions will have to last. We all have to do our little bit to help. This also applies to life in general.
Stay away from people outside of your isolation group.
The intensive care doctor who was on the TV from Cork on Thursday night was very strong on this. These are unprecedented times and it’s very hard on everyone but will be much harder if you or someone in your family gets sick.
Keep safe everyone. We will get through this.
As list of circuit exercises and demonstrations of how to do them below!
If you are indoors or in your garden, work up to a solid (no stopping!) 3 sets of the below with a minute between sets :
- 20 reps (or 30 seconds) of a leg exercise
- 15 reps (or 30 seconds) of an arm exercise
- 20 reps (or 30 seconds) of a core exercise
Start with 30 seconds each if you are a beginner to circuits and when you can continuously do the exercise for 30 seconds without stopping, move on to working towards reps.
As you improve and find yourself not having to take breaks in an exercise, increase the reps +5 and work up to increasing the sets to 6.
Remember to vary your exercises each time you do the circuit i.e don’t do the same ones over and over again because then it becomes too easy 😉
We are expecting everyone to be flawless at all exercises by the time formal training resumes! 😜

Inspired by @ALTIS I thought id share the rudimentary hops series we use to prepare @Mansonn15 for more intense Plyometrics closer to the season whenever and wherever that may be 🦠😅(series: forward easy hops, backwards, inside lateral, outside, alternating, Z bounds) https://t.co/e6n05teIgi
