Masterchef judge Andy Allen reveals his 20-minute lockdown workout


‘It keeps the body active!’ Masterchef Australia judge Andy Allen reveals the easy 20-minute lockdown workout he follows to stay in shape

Andy Allen is currently in the midst of hotel quarantine after returning to NSW from Victoria where he was filming Junior MasterChef. 

And on Saturday, the chef revealed the simple 20-minute workout that he swears by while in lockdown. 

The 32-year-old told the Daily Telegraph that it was difficult to find motivation to exercise.

‘For the first few days, even with more time on my hands than ever, it felt so hard to mentally prepare myself to do some sort of exercise,’ he said. 

‘So on day three I got my act together and put together my daily 20-minute workout.’ 

The workout consists of 20 Push-ups, 20 dodyweight squats, 10 durpees, 10 chair dips and a 60-second plank. Andy recommends doing five sets of the routine.

‘It’s not a massive workout but for me it keeps the mind and body active enough,’ he adds. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has been filled with highs and lows for Andy, who was forced to temporarily close his Three Blue Ducks restaurants.

The decision has been the ‘hardest and most challenging [period] in my whole career’, the co-owner and cook revealed to New Idea earlier this month.

‘To see what you work so hard for get ripped out from underneath you, and to constantly have so much uncertainty around it, has been extremely tough,’ he said.

‘There’s no worse feeling, so I’m looking forward to overcoming it all.’ 

Three Blue Ducks at Bronte, Byron, Rosebery and Brisbane are now back up and running after temporary closures earlier this year.

The eateries reopened on June 1, June 26 and August 14 respectively.
