We have been busy writing and posting a number of blogs since we were last in touch in February – including ideas and tips to help everyone survive lockdown and adjust to a new ‘normal’. Here are a selection of some of our popular blogs over the past few months!

Resistance exercise, anyone? Christos Theodorakopoulos (a Lecturer in Nutrition at the School of Health Sciences, Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh) shared his expertise on how we can all exercise at home (with excellent video links for easy exercises…readers are in for a surprise!) and the importance of exercises that ‘increase or maintain muscle strength (resistance training)’.
With a watchful eye on the increasing rise in popularity of the e-bike, we’ve had a number of blogs on the benefits of cycling including a personal account from Nanette Mutrie, Chair in Physical Activity for Health / Director of PAHRC, University of Edinburgh. My E-bike Joy! – Nanette Mutrie
