Train like Olympic hopefuls Kate Shortman and Isabelle Thorpe with these exercise routines

Ever wanted to train like Olympic hopefuls Kate Shortman and Isabelle Thorpe? Well now you can! 

The British duet have put together a range of workouts they carry out as part of their training programme for anyone to try out during the current national lockdown. They focus on exercises for the glutes, core and a high intensity interval training workout.

You should only perform this programme if you are fit and healthy to do so and with parental permission if under 18. Please make sure that the area you are using for exercise is suitable and clear of hazards.


For this exercise, you can use a looped resistance band around the legs, just above the knees, to challenge yourself. You can use a stronger resistance if you find it too easy or a lighter band/ no band if you find it too challenging. It is good to start with a lighter band and work up to using a stronger one. 

50 seconds exercise, 10 seconds rest:

Repeat once on the right side and once on the left side.
