During the summer it’s nice to run outdoors and get some fresh air during out workouts. In fact, some people even cancel their gym memberships because they are committed to running or biking outside. If you enjoy doing your cardio workouts outdoors, don’t forget to add in some strength training for a stronger and more toned you!
Here are a few quick exercises you can do along the bike trail or running path:
Lunges: Step one foot in front of the other, and bend your front knee so that it’s just above your ankle. Press back up to standing, repeat 20 times per leg, then switch.
Push Ups: Come into a plank position and lower down into a push up, either with elbows wide or elbows hugging into your sides like chaturunga.
Tricep Dips: Find a bench and sit on it. Then place your hands, fingers towards you, onto the bench. Scoot off of the bench with bent knees (easier) or straight legs (harder) and lower your bottom down towards the ground, bending your elbows. Press yourself back up, and then lower back down.
