How to keep fit at a festival...
It's festival season and that can inevitably mean sleeping on a bumpy ground, waking up in soggy clothes and not showering for a week. For a fitness fanatic this can be a nightmare. No cross trainer, no free weights, no fresh clean gym clothes. Just lots of hippies roaming around with a cider in their hand and flowers in their hair (we love you really)
But you’ve been invited a festival and you want to go. So how can you maintain a fitness regime at a festival?
Offer to carry drinks on the way in and bicep curl bottles of Strongbow.
You won’t want to sit on the toilet so use this as a chance to perfect your squat hold at least 4-6 times a day.
Works: Quads, hamstrings, glutes
Uncomfortable sleeping on bumpy ground? Try hip lifts. This will ease the pain for as long as you can hold a hip lift for.
Works: Core strength, glutes
Get in the mosh pit and jump. It will look like your rocking out with everyone but really you’re doing 3 rounds of 30 squat jumps.
When it’s your round at the bar try and walk back to your group carrying one drink on top of the other, without dropping them.
Works: Core strength
Bend down in a crowd and more than likely the nearest person will jump on your shoulders. Lift them up and hold them on your shoulders as long as possible.
Works: Triceps, shoulders, quads
Thought you were going to have a few days off your fitness activities, think again! A festival is really just a playground for gym bunnies!
