Ireland’s top trainer to the stars, who has been running BodyByrne with his wife Siobhan Byrne for 25 years, gives his exclusive at home workout tips to get you through lock-down.
Even Hollywood A-listers have trouble focusing on training at home. Being distracted means you’re not actually keeping your heart rate up, so you’re not getting the benefit of your exercise.
Paul told the Irish Mirror:
“Once you start training regularly you’ll fly it and love body weight exercises.
“The important thing is, don’t stop for anything once you start, move from one exercise to the other, it keeps your heart rate going.

“But you have to think of it like diving into a pool, don’t stop until you’re out the far side.”

“Once you decide to do it, it’s you against you.”
