I don’t know about you, but I’ve been craving the outdoors nonstop lately. When the weather is nice, the flowers are blooming, and the sky is bright blue, I take every chance I can to be outside. My workouts are one of the many chances I take to get outside. Go find your nearest playground and have a little fun with this workout!
Complete 12-15 reps of each of the below exercises. End the circuit with a one mile run. Repeat circuit. Complete circuit for a total of 3 times.
Jog or walk briskly for 5-10 minutes.
Find a bench and place hands on the bench just outside of your shoulders. Do a pushup until your nose is right above the bench. Keep your body straight!
Step one leg up onto a bench or step and bring your other knee up as high as you can. Continue this motion for 12-15 reps. Repeat on the opposite leg.
Find some monkey bars and do your best to pull your body up and down.
Bulgarian Split Squats
Go back to your bench and get in a lunge-like position with the back leg on the bench and the front leg on the ground. Go up and down for 12-15 reps. Repeat on the opposite leg.
Use the bench or a step. Place hands just outside of your hips, elbows pointing straight back (not out to the side), and legs straight out in front of you. Press your body weight up and down.
Hang from monkey bars and bring your knees to your chest.
Monkey Bars Sit Ups
Hang from the monkey bars and use your core to pull your weight up and back down.
(Go run that one mile, take a 60 second rest, and repeat the circuit!)
Do some stretching and take a short walk to cool down your body.
I hope you guys are able to try this one out! As always, I’m here if you have any questions. Have an awesome day!
P.S. Those pull ups are brutal if you haven’t done much weight lifting in awhile. Sheesh!
