I can do a workout anywhere:
At the beach.
On the deck.
On the driveway.
In the snow.
And if you're around, I'll get you to join me.
- they're fun and easy
- you can do them anywhere
- the exercises are spontaneous
- they keep your body guessing
- you are OUTSIDE!
Today I ran to the fitness center because I wanted to do some weight training. I'm trying to build my upper body strength by doing some boot camp style workouts. Since I don't own any weights (anymore), I have to go to the fitness center.
On my run there, I decided to stop and do some body weight exercises outside. I saw a perfectly good set of stairs that I could put to use. Nothing complicated. I usually choose exercises that I can't do indoors (like step ups/jumps) or that I don't want to do indoors when I can do them outdoors (squats/pushups).
I spent about 30 minutes at the gym using the free weights and medicine balls before running back home.
Do you workout outdoors?
What exercises would you do on stairs?
