21 Days with Allan Wu: WFH Exercise Programme

Jun 01 2020 - Blog

In this trying time of the circuit breaker, many of us find ourselves in limbo and are seeking new ways to breathe life into our daily routine. Exercise is one sure-fire way to keep our spirits up. A study on 1.2 million people in the U.S. has found that people who exercise report having 1.5 fewer days of poor mental health a month, compared to people who don’t!

In the name of hitting the reset button, many people have turned to joining fitness programmes, watching yoga videos on YouTube, and the list goes on. However, this enthusiasm to start a new routine often dies down as quickly as it began. We get pegged down by household chores, endless workload and start procrastinating. Sounds familiar?

Indeed, the challenge of inertia is real. We are all creatures of habit and find it hard to adopt new behaviours that may be completely out of our comfort zone. But fret not, there’s still light at the end of the tunnel. It’s said that it takes about 21 days for people to adopt a new habit of easy-to-moderate complexity.


To help you kickstart your healthy lifestyle successfully and live THE GOOD LIFE, Sky Premium has some good news for you. For the next 21 days, we’ve teamed up with our ambassador, Allan Wu, to curate a step-by-step progressive fitness programme specially for beginners. No matter if you’re back in the office or still working from home, you can start doing these exercises with ease!

This programme will take you through Stretching Essentials (Week 1), Simple Home Workouts (Week 2) and ultimately, Mobility Training (Week 3).

In Week 1 of the 21-Day WFH Exercise Programme with Allan Wu, we will cover the importance of stretching. You will learn the mechanics and benefits behind stretching specific body parts.

Some benefits of stretching include:

  • Reducing fatigue
  • Preventing muscle strain and injuries
  • Improving posture
  • Increasing muscle coordination and balance

This will come in handy especially for people whose jobs require them to do a lot of heavy lifting, pushing, pulling and/or repetitive motion. Stretching regularly also helps to prevent Musculoskeletal Disorder (MSD), a work-related disorder that affects our muscles, tendons and joints.
