Team Sporteluxe is now into week five of our eight week N+TC Tour Sydney training journey. As part of this week’s training session with Nike Master Trainer Greg Sellar, we were challenged to embrace the exercises we love to hate. We also asked Greg to give us the lowdown on why our least fave exercises are so great for us and share some tips to help you can perfect your training technique at home.
“Running is a high endurance exercise that provides good lower body muscular endurance and fantastic cardio benefits,” says Greg.

“Push ups are great for building upper body strength and sculpting the muscles of the arms,” says Greg.

Least favourite part of training: mountain climbers
“Mountain climbers are a great exercise to work your core actively,” says Greg. “As you move your legs in and out in a piston action your core is working to hold the plank position. It’s also a great cardio exercise.”

Least favourite part of training: burpees
“Burpees are one of the best full body exercises you can do,” says Greg. “They work the legs, shoulders and core as well as giving you a great heart rate boost.”
