Get fit in 15 minutes: Celebrity personal trainer reveals the best exercise for a full-body workout


WHAT TO DO 

Celebrity personal trainer Nadya Fairweather (u-shape.co.uk) says this exercise is helpful for strengthening the quads and stabilising the knee joint. Find a circle band and stand with it around your ankles. Hold on to a stable surface. Place the band under your left foot and keep it around your right ankle. Lift your right leg up, knee bent, slowly extend it out in front of you, working against the band. Do not lock the knee joint.

Continue out and in for eight reps. Repeat on the left. Try for three sets on each leg.

WHAT TO EAT 

Your diet can also aid you in easing joint pain, says nutritionist Lola Biggs (togetherhealth.co.uk).

Many of us use ginger in our cooking, but did you know that it has anti-inflammatory properties, so may help with aches and pains?

Try grating fresh ginger into a stir fry, or make a tea by infusing fresh ginger in boiling water.

Boswellia, also known as frankincense, is another herb that’s been used for centuries for anti-inflammatory benefits. Try Together Health’s Joint Aid, £10.99, blending 65 per cent boswellic acid and curcumin extract. Fish oils are full of omega-3 fatty acids that can have anti-inflammatory benefits. Find it in sardines, trout, mackerel and salmon.
