Exercises To Do Outside

Working out in the confines of a gym is fine for most people, and with new fitness centers continuing to open up all over the place, this option is becoming more and more accessible to everyone.

For others however, the mere thought of exercising indoors is enough to put them off completely. Well, with the summer season now upon us, it’s about time you took your training into the great outdoors.

There’s no reason at all why you can’t push your body to its limits just because you’re not in the gym. Over at Fitness Beans, they highlight several key exercises which can be done with little or no equipment:

Exercising Outdoors

  1. Push-Ups: One of the oldest and most effective upper body exercises available to you targeting the chest, shoulders and triceps region of your body – depending on whether you opt for a wide or narrow hand positioning.
  1. Squats: No lower body workout is complete without completing a series of squats. Performed correctly, this exercise targets your quadriceps, gluts and stabilizing muscles in a single movement. If you’re looking for both variation and progression then why not consider a wide leg squat or even attempt a single legged version.
  1. Lunges: As with squatting, if done correctly, lunges will target the majority of your lower body muscles including your hamstrings region. These can be performed on the spot or as part of a moving exercise to achieve a set distance.

See, it’s easy to achieve a full body workout away from the gym. Also, these are just a small collection of exercises you can do – utilizing the environment around you will give you a ton of workouts to choose from in no time.

Even if you do hold a gym membership, sometimes it’s not always possible to get there and on those occasions, you always have exercising outdoors as a back-up option. Remember, working out with nature has the potential to offer just as, if not more, benefits than exercising in the gym.
