The moves include:

• Box squats - these can be made harder by grabbing a weight such as a bin or a heavy book.

• Superman - lie on your front and slowly raise your arms and legs simultaneously.

Mr Reeve said: “It’s important to train at the moment for many reasons. Isolation can have a bad impact on mental health and physical activity has been show to improve mental wellbeing and outlook - something which is vital right now.”
