We still have students on site who are in lockdown with us, but it’s business as usual as far as teaching and training is concerned, and that includes their 3 times a week fitness sessions!

Last night courses 340 and the “remainers” (those who graduated during lockdown so stayed with us) were put through their paces by our onsite fitness instructor, Yariv Kam

Day 6 of exercises and today we’re doing the ๐—ช๐—ผ๐—ฏ๐—ฏ๐—น๐—ฒ ๐—–๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ฆ๐—พ๐˜‚๐—ฎ๐˜๐˜€

Again, this is 4 minute exercise to score 100%. If you don’t have any wobble cushions try anything that is small and unstable, the idea is that your core strength needs to engage and keep you static.

Good luck!

Tag us in your photos and we’ll share your alternatives to the wobble cushions

Right you’ve had 2 days off now let’s get back to getting jockey fit. Todayโ€™s exercise is ๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฃ๐—น๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ธ.

Its fairly simple, just hold the plank position for 4 minutes to score 100% (remember you need at least 70% to be considered for a licence

We’re returning to legs today for this killer exercise –ย ๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฒย ๐—˜๐˜…๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ฒย ๐—•๐—ฎ๐—น๐—นย ๐—ฆ๐—พ๐˜‚๐—ฎ๐˜๐˜€.

And yes, that’s a 5kg weight she’s holding too!! ๐Ÿฅต

If you don’t have an exercise ball or weight, use whatever else you can find, a smaller football and a bag of potatoes?? Be inventive!

Can you hold it for 2 minutes??

It’s Day 3 of the jockey fitness test and we’ve moved to the upper body with the ๐—˜๐—น๐—ฎ๐˜€๐˜๐—ถ๐—ฐ ๐—ฃ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ต.

To score 100% you need keep this up for 2 mins, which is a total of 100 resisted pushes!

Let us know how you get on

Did anyone score 100% by achieving 90 secs in the press up and hold position yesterday?? (see yesterdays post for info)

Day 2 and the second exercise in the Jockey fitness challenge is ๐—Ÿ๐—ฒ๐—ด ๐—ฅ๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜€.

Remember you need 70% to pass the test but why not aim for 100% which is 4minutes at a rate of 25 raises per minute.

Good luck

Some of you will be at home, some of you will still be working but what we do all have in common is that we CANNOT go to the gym or any group exercise classes.

So we hope you’ll be staying active at home and to help here’s the jockey fitness test, bit by bit.

Once you’ve mastered the exercises, let us know when you’re scoring 100% like Tom Marquand (you need to score over 70% to pass)Some of you will be at home, some of you will still be working but what we do all have in common is that we CANNOT go to the gym or any group exercise classes.

So we hope you’ll be staying active at home and to help here’s some of the jockey fitness test, we’ll be adding another exercise each day.

Once you’ve mastered the exercises, let us know when you’re scoring 100% like @tom.marquand (you need to score over 70% to pass

Hopefully their smiles will make you smile! .

The British Racing School (BRS) takes its responsibilities towards trainees and staff very seriously and is putting in place measures that it feels are appropriate precautions. The situation is developing on a day by day basis and it is likely that further information will require the School to amend and adapt its current arrangements. Please be aware that we are still open and courses are running as normal.

This is a developing situation and we would encourage you to refer to the latest information and advice on this matter from the Department of Health and Social Care and Public Health England which can be found via this link below.

What a difference 24hours makes, and emphasises even more how no 2 days working in racing are the same.
