Don’t get me wrong I love going to the gym.you’ve got hundreds of machines which you can use to improve your body shape and boost overall fitness…
BUT sometimes it can get a little boring, for one most gyms are mainly indoors and after a long day at the office it can sometimes be the last place that you want to end up!
I love working out in the great outdoors. Whether that’s running, doing a workout in the park, or hitting a punching bag, using a heavy bag stand secured to the wall in my garden.
In this post, I’m going to share 4 Ways For You To Get A Great Outdoor Workout…
One of my favorite ways to workout outdoors is by doing hardcore caveman workouts. This is where you do exercises with things like tractor tires (flipping them over), and also do exercises with equipment like sledgehammers.Just make sure to wear some SYLPHID STEEL TOE SHOES to protect your feet from the sledgehammers!
Another great way of doing this training is in the park. For example, you could run to your local park and then do pull-ups (if the park has an outdoor gym) but if not you can do push-ups and dips on a bench.
You could also do high-intensity sprints across the field, I’d recommend doing 50m sprints as fast as you can be followed by 60s rest, do this 5-10x and your heart will be racing and you’ll burn a whopping number of calories.
Running is a great way to get fit. I would recommend running on soft grass when possible, as running on roads can cause damage to the knees. Put on your running shoes and get your heart racing for a great aerobic workout which will burn calories and also help improve your cardio.
This is one of my favorite forms of outdoor exercise because it’s low impact on the joints and something which you can do every day. For the last 28 days, I’ve walked over 10,000 steps per day, which equates to around an extra 250 calories burnt each day.
You could add cycling into your weekly routine especially in the summer. Cycling is another low impact activity that can strengthen the heart, burn calories and also help build up the leg muscles, especially the thighs, glutes, hamstrings, and calves.
