Outdoor Exercise- Welcome Spring!
Now that Spring is finally here, time to shed those winter clothes and get outside and get moving! Remember, it is a myth that you can't get a good workout without going to the gym. Head out to your local park for walking/running trails, bike trails, or family recreation, such as a game of tag, basketball, softball, kickball- be creative! If you're looking for something hard core, try mixing in plyometrics (jump squats, burpees, mountain climbers on the curb) in your run or walk at regular intervals, such as every 15 minutes, every mile, or some visual cue, such as at every corner, every left turn... You can also add in walking lunges, side squats, push ups, dips on the curb or planks. Your body weight will provide all the resistance you need! So grab your sneakers and just walk out the door. You'll feel energized and invigorated by some much needed sunshine and a connection with nature.
