Australian Institute of Fitness Master Trainer graduate, Gold’s Gym ambassador, Oxygen magazine cover girl winner, F45 female playoffs champion and star Personal Trainer; Jenna Douros is a force to be reckoned with. Passionate about consistent growth and new challenges, this year Jenna enrolled in the Nutrition Coach program at the Australian Institute of Fitness campus in Canberra.
While up-skilling, Jenna isn’t letting a moment on campus go to waste, using her lunch breaks to sneak in a quick workout in the gym and outdoor equipment. Check out what she got up to at her last face-to-face workshop! If you’re looking for a challenge for your next workout; look no further.
Jenna’s Tip: Exercise requires quite a lot of strength, so try to avoid letting your body drop on the negative parts of this exercise. To make it easier, skip the pull-up and start by practising burpees and adding a hanging leg raise.
Jenna’s Tip: Control is the key here. Try to avoid letting your body swing with the movement. Use your core to bring you up and keep your body steady throughout the entire motion. If you’re doing this for the first time, have someone there to spot you. To make it easier start off my performing upright hanging straight leg raises and work up to the progression.
Jenna’s Tip: This is an advanced exercise so start by simply climbing across the monkey bars if you want to progress to jumps. Take great care performing this move, as it’s a very shoulder intensive exercise so keep a slight bend in the elbows to minimise the impact of the landing.
