Valentine’s Day In Lockdown

Valentine’s Day In Lockdown

Valentine’s Day 2021 could be a little flaccid (excuse the pun) but it needn’t be. Despite current restrictions, there’s still plenty you can do to show your mother, brother or significant other how much they mean to you. We’ve crafted a little ‘Valentine’s Day In Lockdown’ guide for inspiration so you can create a day to remember

Valentine’s Day breakfast in bed

Kick Valentine’s Day off on the right foot by treating them to a tasty, healthy breakfast under the covers. This overnight oats is an absolute winner. It needs prepping the night before, which is great because all you need to do in the morning is whip it out the fridge and head upstairs (though if you want some extra brownie points, add a topping of homemade granola for extra crunch).

Shop our award-winning sports nutrition

Once you’re up and about, it’s time to get some fresh air.

Go for a hand-in-hand stroll or yoga session

Erica and I will be out this morning for our daily yoga session followed by a stroll around the park. If you’re new to yoga, there’s plenty of YouTube videos you can follow, but we also love DoYogaWithMe.

Settle down with a coffee and a good book

Home and cosy, settle down to a good brew and your favourite book. Need a book recommendation? The 33Fuel team compiled a list of their favourite reads.

After you’ve enjoyed some lunch, it’s time to get active.

Couples HIIT workout

33fuel valentines day in lockdown - couples training together

Working out with your partner is great fun and hugely bonding

High intensity interval training (HIIT) provides brilliant training gains, is time-efficient and is great fun to do with your partner.

Getting sweaty together brings a whole host of benefits to a relationship, so if you’re in need of some couples exercise to spice up the home workout, look no further.

Alternatively, you’ll enjoy guaranteed laughs by learning how to do handstands together or get bendy with some couples yoga.

Once the session is over, recover like a pro with an Eroica protein bar. 100% natural, 20g protein and darn-delicious, this bar is an absolute winner
