My favorite season of the year is finally here. Like many of you, I have been exercising indoors for the past several months and am ready to perform an outdoor workout, sweat and enjoy the company of other “exercisers.” I love to run and workout in an open park. Not only can you run, bike, etc outdoors, you can also knock out a quick 20-minute outdoor workout routine. Here is a program you can do outdoors that does not require any additional equipment. You will love this outdoor workout!

20-Minute Outdoor Workout Routine

Perform a 2 minute cardiovascular warm up (run, jog, walk, etc).

Perform each exercise for 90 seconds. Finish all of the exercises, take a one-minute break, and then repeat.

If you are using a heavy weight to build muscle, move at a slower pace. If you are using a lighter weight, you may go at a faster pace to build endurance.

Focus on proper technique. Make sure your knee does not go past your ankle.

Muscles Worked: Lower extremity, focus on quadriceps.

Find a park bench to do these on.

Muscles Worked: Pectorals, triceps, biceps, shoulders.

Find a tree or a street sign to hold onto.

Muscles Worked: Calves

Sit on a bench or in the grass.

Muscles Worked: Glutes, hamstrings.

Use a bench for your Dips.

Muscles Worked: Triceps.

Don’t forget to repeat the circuit!
