Tom Daley takes on Joe Wicks as he shares home workouts as Olympics is postponed

Tom Daley might not have to compete in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics in a couple of months, but he’s not letting his fitness slip just because it’s been postponed by a year. 

The British diver, 25, has been sharing at-home workouts with his fans as he keeps up with hjs own training regimen outside of the pool.

Tom shared photos of him practising diving on dry land (yes that is a thing, apparently), telling his followers: ‘Out of the pool, but still working the movement patterns!’

He also shared videos his followers can workout with at home, telling them: ‘If you’ve been social distancing, as I have been. During these kind of times of isolation, it is important to keep your mental well-being as well as your physical wellbeing in check. 

‘Working out for short periods of time at home can really help with both your mental and physical health. 

‘I have a load of home workouts on my YouTube channel for you to try if you want to keep in shape without a gym! Give them a go and let me know what you think?!’

He added on another home workout video: ‘I know these times are so surreal and social distancing can be really tough. 

‘Mental health is something we all need to be really mindful of in these times, that is why I try to do a home workout each morning to kick start my day.

‘I am going to be sharing some of them with you! Be sure to save them and share with friend! Enjoy!’

Many celebrities have been using self-isolation to help their followers by sharing their talents and tips with them, and Joe Wicks is another who has been encouraging the nation to get off the sofa and work up a sweat.
