Your Weekly Dose of SLEVEN

Week 4 of QUARANTEAM starts today! Our third weekly task, to learn something has come to an end. The goal of our weekly task is to change habits and get you doing something you wouldn't normally do day-to-day.  Many of us have a love-hate relationship with running, but there has never been a better time to run: the weather is ideal and, with gyms closed, it’s a great way to get some exercise done. Our new weekly task is to run for 60 minutes over the course of the week. Break this up however you wish: 3 or 4 shorter runs or a couple of longer efforts.

Make sure you ready your daily QUARANTEAM email for tips on how to get the best out of this task, especially if you're new to running!

Niall Sheehy and Andy Ward continued their QUARANTEAM kitchen war. This week, they had a crack at our banana cashew muffin recipe. Considering Andy is a chef by trade, we feel like he has a slight advantage over poor old Niall who has never baked in his life! With social distancing, we're not able to taste test but we'll let you make your own decision!

Last week's QUARANTEAM leader, Fokion Sanoudos, has consolidated his position and even extended it! A great way to pip him to that top spot is to do well in our weekly quiz on Friday nights. This week we're adding a baby picture round. Make sure you send us a baby picture to be included in the quiz and let's see how well we know each other!

Although we are all missing Sleven, we hope you're all following TWENTY FOUR SLEVEN to keep up your daily dose of training. We publish the bodyweight programme complete with videos of the movements on Instagram each evening. If you check out our Instagram stories, I also post an easy to follow warm up to get you prepped for the session.

If you are lucky enough to own some kit - namely some dumbbells and/or a kettlebell, we also have a version of the programme that incorporates use of this kit called BELLS. BOTH versions of TWENTY FOUR SLEVEN are posted on Wodify each night at 20:00 for the following day, along with tips for the workout and points of performance for each of the movements.

Sometimes, it is not as simple as swapping out bands for a dumbbell and although the workout will be similar, some changes to rep schemes and movements are made to accommodate use of this kit whilst maintaining the integrity of the workout. So if you are using kit, make sure you check Wodify for how best to incorporate it into your training and don't just swap a band for a heavy kettlebell!

If you are following TWENTY FOUR SLEVEN, we'd love to hear from you, so please email us your feedback to let us know how you are getting on.

Smoothie Saturday is quickly becoming part of many Sleveners' weekly routine! Not only do you get to try out a new recipe but chat with nutritionist Tom on the hot topics of the week. Come with questions or just have a listen and we bet you'll leave the chat feeling a bit more connected to your fellow Sleveners and hopefully having learned something too.

This week's recipe is Apple Pecan! Pecan nuts are a powerhouse of vitamins and minerals such as manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, and selenium. Coupled with the fibre rich apples and protein this is a great mid afternoon smoothie.

Open Prep & Power (Half) Hour

Tomorrow is the first day of our 6 week Open Prep programme! If you missed our announcement last week, you can catch-up here.

There are still a lot of details to be finalised as to how the Open is going to work this year given the different levels of lockdown worldwide (even Dave Castro’s 15 minute video on YouTube didn’t really enlighten us as to the finer details as yet). One thing we can assure you is that Sleven will be involved as much as our level of lockdown will allow. As more details come to light, we will keep you informed with the exact details.

MetCon Outdoors

The decision by the Government not to allow gyms and leisure centres to open on 4 July was pretty disappointing. But we’re not going to let that get us down! We’ll be introducing some outdoor MetCon classes for you from Monday 29 June. These classes will be available only to paying members on monthly memberships. Due to limited capacity, we will not be allowing new members to join at this time.
