Outdoor workout

I want to show everyone that you don’t necessarily need a gym or any high tech equipment in order to be able to complete a successful workout. 

Today the gym was closed so myself and my partner headed to our local park. Here they have put up equipment that the public can use, which I think they do at a lot of local parks in the UK. 

  
There was no one on it when we got there and we agreed to complete a partner workout of 150 pull ups, 150 press ups and 400 air squats. If you’re just getting started then these are quite big numbers, I would start out with the aim to do much smaller sets of 20 and see how you feel after each set. If you haven’t got pull ups then there will be probably be a bar low enough to have a go at jumping pull ups. 

  
Air squats are a brilliant exercise as they really work the large muscle groups in your legs and ladies they’re brilliant for the bum! 

If you struggle with press ups then again break it down try as many as you can, then have a go at going on to your knees. Try to keep your hips inline when doing this though to ensure your arms get a work out. 

If you go to your local park and there isn’t any equipment at all then try to incorporate some sprints. In addition if there are benches then try some steps ups, or jump ups if your feeling brave. Tricep dips can also be done using a bench.

Other exercise you can include are lunges, jumping jacks, sit ups, skipping etc. There are loads and I hope to post some videos soon.
