Happy Wednesday, friends! How about this weather, right?! Or as RM would say…
I took advantage of it by going for a run yesterday and today I hope to go for a bike ride when I get home from work since we took our bikes out and tuned them up yesterday.
Unfortunately, today’s workout isn’t really an “outdoor” workout, although with a set of dumbbells and a mat you certainly COULD do this outside- in fact, I encourage it! I will often do this- it’s a way to be outside and get some Vitamin D while also getting your workout in. Win- win!
This is a “simple” workout in that it’s very straight forward and doesn’t involve any complicated or fancy moves. Personally, these are the types of workouts I love to do when I’m short on time or when I’m traveling since I know they are effective. “Tried & true” exercises are called that for a reason- they work- over and over again. Plus, they don’t include any unnecessary “fluff” aspects of the exercise (which, in my opinion, is only added so you can look fancy on Instagram… ). I also love them because they allow for you to use your mental and physical strength busting out the exercises, rather than trying to figure out how the heck to execute it. That said, grab a heavy-ish weight and get to work focusing on form (always), but also on speed. Try and minimize the amount of rests throughout each round and instead try to save the rest for between rounds if you need it. This will help make it more of a cardio workout, too!
You’ll set the timer for 22 minutes and complete as many rounds as possible of the exercises below in that amount of time.
I think all of the moves should be fairly common and shouldn’t require a full-blow explanation, but if you have any questions, of course don’t hesitate to ask me! Happy sweating!
Questions for you: Have you been able to get outside to enjoy the nice weather? What’s your outdoor exercise of choice?
