Farmers Weekly has teamed up with farmer’s son Tom Kemp, from Farm Fitness, to share a series of exercises that you can do using items commonly found on a farm.
Over 10 weeks, the Farm Fit series will take you through a new workout every week, helping you to stay active and increase your strength and stamina during the coronavirus pandemic.
Whether you’re looking to shape up in preparation for our Britain’s Fittest Farmer competition or want some motivation to get fit at home, we’ve got you covered.
What is Britain’s Fittest Farmer?
This competition is designed to get all farmers thinking and talking about their health – physical and mental – to make sure they are in top condition to run their farm businesses.
It aims to support farmers’ amazing work to put food on our plates and care for our countryside, by helping them ensure they are fit to farm.
We’re looking for farmers who make fantastic ambassadors for health and fitness in agriculture, to help break the taboo of talking about mental health issues such as depression, eating disorders and rural isolation.
To find out more, see who has signed up already and apply yourself, go to the Britain’s Fittest Farmer website.
Episode 6 – 400m run, dumbbell snatch and burpees
