Mix it Up Outdoor Workout

Get outside this spring and workout!  Mix it up by adding strength moves to any run.

Mix It Up Outdoor Workout Fitness

Hello! Hello!

When the weather warms up I literally want to spend all my time outside.  I’d even be happy with an outdoor office 🙂  Especially if I could somehow be outside, but not have the pollen.  But that’s a story for another day.

I decided to create a workout that you can do outside, but isn’t just straight running.  It’s great for those of you who are maybe in a running slump, want to mix it up or can’t seem to run for 30 minutes straight.

Start with a nice walking warm-up and active stretch and finish a walking cool-down and some deeper stretches.

Do the workout once for a solid 30 minute workout or double for a close to an hour extravaganza of fitness fun.

Here are a few workout tips!

Do the Tricep Dips on a bench.

Make sure no one is running right behind you before you stop to do the circuits. 🙂

For an extra challenge do the plank leg lifts on a curb.

Another way to add intensity is to increase the speed of your run each circuit.

Do it with a friend for competition and fun!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Come back tomorrow a delightfully simple summer taco salad.

Your turn!

Do you ever take your workouts outside?

    When I was coaching cross country I loved giving them workouts like this that combine running with challenging body weight exercises. Now that I don’t coach them anymore I guess I’ll have to do the workout myself :-). Thanks for linking up!

    This looks like a great way to switch up a workout! Hopefully this warming weather trend will continue!

    I definitely need to mix it up this spring. As soon as it warms up!! Thanks for linking up!

  7. I love these kinds of workouts! When I was in Florida, I actually saw a mom running on the beach with her little guy, and they’d stop every couple of minutes to do some kind of activity, like jumping jacks, push ups, etc.

    I can’t wait for the nicer weather to get here to the UK as I want to make the most of outdoor workouts. I just feel so much better after them.
