Off The Couch is our new fitness series to help us all to stay fit - or get fit - during this period of social isolation.
Some of Ireland’s leading trainers, physios, fitness experts, sportspeople and other friends of the show will be sharing their top tips in straight-to-the-point and easy to use videos - which will go live across or social channels every day at lunchtime.
Today it's the turn of former-rugby player and current rugby pundit Andy Dunne - who is also a clinical exercise specialist.
Here's his breakdown of the best way to use these exercises:
- 5 of the bouncing ball
- 5 silent burpees
- 10 inchworms
Andy also joined us on OTB AM to discuss the Off The Couch video and to share his own story about deciding to improve his fitness (aided by seeing himself in an Off The Ball video and thinking he looked like he could increase his activity-levels!).

His five-move routine - made up of a mix of the exercises they use most-frequently with clients - works as both a warm-up for a run or lifting weights or can be used as a standalone workout.
Joey suggests doing two full circuits to get in gear for another activity - or five repetitions for a full training session.
