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.
- Walk, jog or run for 3 minutes
- Walking lunges – 20 reps total (10 each leg)
- Pushups – 10 reps
- 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.
- 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)
- 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.
