I used to do many more of my workouts outside. I was on an Outrigging team, I was in a rowing club, I used to do more trail running, beach jogging and hiking. But life has been happening and let me tell you, it has seriously cut into my outdoor, clear-my-mind-and-body time. The one last hold-out I refuse to give up is my once-a-week outdoor workout in a local park.
This is one I dug up from my archives. It’s a simple leg circuit. You can improvise with the equipment. I’m using Lebert Equalizers, but you can just do hip bridges with your feet on a bench or do the same exercise with big ol’ medicine or body ball. I keep kettlebells in my car which are key for leg and overall strength, but you can swing a dumbbell if necessary. Listen up though, I think everyone should learn how to swing a kettlebell, so watch my tutorial on that.
So get outside gang. Lose the fluorescent lights and mirrored walls, and get yourself some nature while you workout. You’ll see what a huge difference it makes in your brain chemistry!
