Get Fit Outdoors This Spring

With the weather finally starting to feel like spring, why not start taking your workouts outside?  Working out outside is a great way to celebrate the season of spring and not only will it get your body physically healthy, it will also give you the opportunity to explore your neighborhood.

Below is a great workout from thelivefitgirl.com and fitnessista.com you can simply do outside by yourself or with your friends, all you need is a park bench. Complete each exercise for 30 seconds then rest for 30 seconds in between each exercise, do the full routine 2-3 more times for more of a challenge:

1. Split Squats

Facing away from the bench, place one leg in front of you, a couple of inches away from the bench. Place the other leg directly reaching behind you onto the bench and simply bend both legs to perform a lunge. Do the exercise on one leg for the full 30 seconds, then switch legs for the next round.

2. Single Leg Tricep Dips

3. Burpees

Begin standing straight with your arms above your head. Putting your hands on the floor, bend down and jump out into a high plank position. Jump your feet back into your hands and stand back up into starting position while performing a vertical jump into the air. Repeat this sequence for full 30 seconds

4. High Knees

5. Push-up Plank Jacks

Start in high plank/push-up position, perform a push up (place knees on ground if needed). After the pushup, jump your legs out, similar to a standing jumping jack, bring your legs back in and repeat from the pushup.
