Wednesday Workout: Run/Walk & Park Boot Camp Circuit

As I mentioned in my Weekly Workouts post on Monday, last week I did a really fun workout which only included myself & a park bench! I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to share it with you. I also thought it would be nice to show you a workout that doesn’t include any gym equipment so that you can hopefully take this on the road with you!

I went into the workout only knowing that I wanted to run 10 minutes and then perform various exercises. As I started my first strength set, this is what I came up with:

park workout

This was a great, full body workout that left me really tired and really sweaty! And, what’s great is that you can modify this workout and walk the 10 minute cardio intervals instead of running them, so there’s really no excuse 😉

If you have any questions regarding any of the moves, let me know! I was able to cover about 3.7 miles in the 30 minutes of running, which I felt good about! Let me know if you try this 🙂

Questions for you: Have you ever done a workout in a park before? Do you like to run for timed intervals or distance?

    Hi Monique,
    such a great post and fantastic information, perfect to inspire healthy ‘park life’.

    I have been following a similar routine now for some time. I run a four mile trail course through my local woods. At the end of each mile I do a bench workout. I do 20 inverted push ups, 20 dips, 20 sit ups, 10 towel pull ups (the towel is looped over a tree branch), 20 box (bench) jumps and then continue with the next mile. I have considered swapping the push ups for purpees, what are your thoughts on this?

    It’s an amazing workout which leaves me sweaty so I know where you’re coming from!

    Well you look amazing so you really are an ambassador for a healthy lifestyle while still enjoying the many blessings life has to offer.

    Wishing you all the best in your endeavours,

    Russ.

      Hi Russ, thank you for your comment! I think what you’re doing for a running/park bootcamp is awesome. I think it’s definitely a good idea to add in some burpees for a change, but I am bias when it comes to burpees 🙂 I appreciate your kind compliments- I work hard to find a healthy balance in my lifestyle, so I’m glad that is portrayed in my posts. Take care!
