Twenty Outdoor & Travel Workouts
With Summer just beginning & Covid still a concern, many of my readers are asking for ideas for outdoor & travel workouts. Of course you may choose to try some of these workouts in the comfort of your home but it’s really nice to get outside in nature after the cold & rainy spring we have had.
You can modify these Outdoor & Travel Workouts
Depending on your fitness and age level you will need to modify these home workouts so they work for you as they are very general, boot camp style home, outdoor & travel workouts.
Warm-Up & Cool Down:
Before you start your home workouts it is super important that you warm up your body. The warm-up primes your body, and starts getting more blood and oxygen to your muscles for the workouts. This is important not only to make the most of your workout, but to reduce injury also! If you are at the beach a perfect warmup would be to walk through the sand & water barefoot. This is also a great way to strengthen the muscles of your feet & lower legs.
The cool down is equally as important! It helps to return your heart rate back to normal levels, and definitely helps to reduce the effect of DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) that you feel 24-48 hours after working out! Stretching also helps to keep your muscles at a more optimal length so you are not as tight throughout the day.
Just Breathe in & Enjoy the Beautiful Summer Weather!
