Take Your Exercise Routine Outdoors!

Here’s a simple and fun exercise routine that you can take outdoors.

Here’s the routine:

Do each exercise one after the other in a circuit. Modify the routine and the weights to your current level of fitness. Take no more than 60 seconds of rest between exercises.

  1. Walk, jog or run for 3 minutes
  2. Walking lunges – 20 reps total (10 each leg)
  3. Pushups – 10 reps
  4. Step ups – use your body weight or hold on to two dumbbells – 10 reps each leg. Step up and down on to a high bench.
  5. Squat with Overhead Shoulder Press – 15 reps – (Hold on to two dumbbells. Squat down and then press the weights overhead as you come up from the squat)
  6. Tricep Pushups – 10 reps

Take a 1-2 minute breather, drink some water and then repeat the circuit for a total of 3-4 times.

I find that the trick to keeping my workouts consistent is to always keep them fresh and interesting. Don’t get into a rut of doing the same thing all the time, especially when you can take your workouts outdoors.
