Autumn training: 3 sessions in just 10 minutes
It doesn't take much for you to feel the effects of training. Here are some ideas for short 10-minute workouts, and tips for the right clothing to wear.
Whether you need some extra inspiration or motivation to start training, there are many different exercises you can do in the beginning, and good wool training clothes will make your workout feel even better.
Here are some tips to help you get started with this autumn’s training sessions.
- Climb hills with poles, so you get to use your whole body and to train muscles you usually can't train without poles. Do it as one whole session or split it into intervals.
- Dips: Keep your body close to the bench or rock, bring your elbows back and lower your buttocks. Stretch your elbows when you raise yourself back up. A moderated move is to place your legs closer.
- Normal intervals can easily be done in 10 minutes, either on flat ground or on an incline.
A quick and effective way to increase your heart rate and train efficiently in a short period of time.
A good challenge is to do each exercise for 10 minutes, to really train your body and test its shape.
The right clothes and equipment for training
You don't need much for this training session, but we recommend good training clothes and, of course, good shoes. There are several clothes in our collection that are particularly suitable for training both indoors and outdoors, as well as for low- and high-intensity activities.
There are several reasons why wool makes great training clothing. If you exercise a lot outdoors, weather changes such as light snow or rain won't affect you as much because wool retains heat, which means that even during periods of low intensity, you won't feel damp or cold. If you're doing low-intensity training, it’s worth having an extra layer, either a middle layer or an outer layer.
Garments that are well suited for high-intensity activities are often lightweight garments with a lower gram weight and mesh panels for better ventilation and mobility. During low-intensity activities where you don't sweat as much or produce much body heat, you will need warmer garments.
Whether you're training indoors or outdoors, you’ll sweat, and wool has good moisture-wicking properties that will wick away moisture and sweat from the body so you don't feel clammy. Best of all, if you invest in wool clothes and take care of them properly, they'll last you a long time – so it's an investment in itself. In addition, wool is naturally bacteria-retardant and you don't need to wash wool garments between uses. All you need to do is hang them up to air, saving both the environment and your wallet.
It's always nicer to train with a buddy than on your own; you can keep each other motivated and get to put some good training routines in place. This all helps keep you motivated, especially in autumn when it starts to get dark outside.
