Quarantine is not an excuse to remain inactive. Every day we offer you a session to do at home in order to arrive in top form when resuming padel.
Even if we get lost a little with quarantine, today is Monday. And what could be better than starting the week with a session of High Intensity Interval Training, which will give you the potato! We therefore offer you a session carried out by Léa Godallier, which combines strengthening of the upper body and improvement of the tone of the legs, essential to padel.
This session can be done at home, almost without equipment. We start with squats, here, Léa uses an elastic resistance band but you can replace it with any weight you find at home, or even your paletero. For the more comfortable you can even do one leg squats!
We then leave on 4 footsteps followed by a full jump. Then, pumps, which you can do at your convenience, depending on your level and your goals (tight, wide apart, on your knees, raised feet etc.). After, jumping rope, if you do not have one or it is too risky in your interior, you can replace it with basic jumps, or skipping.
Finally, dips, which you can easily do at home between two chairs for example. The circuit was carried out in 40/20 (40 seconds of effort, 20 seconds of rest), with 2 minutes of rest at the end of a circuit, all repeated 5 times. Again you can change it depending on your level. A beginner can do 30/30, when someone who is very comfortable can do 45/15. Same for the number of times we repeat the circuit, you can go from 3 to 6. Anyway, if an exercise is too difficult or you feel that you will not hold, do not hesitate to slightly decrease the intensity.
