Since the global landscape of workout routines have changed, we are going to share with you some of the best outdoor exercise ideas. You can do these anywhere with absolutely no need for fancy types of equipment.
Most gyms around the USA and the entire world are closed, for the time being, which means we all have to get creative with working out. Having an abundance of outdoor exercise ideas is a great way to work out and stay active without staying inside, going to a gym, and keeping social distancing from others.
We are lucky that during this time, the weather is shifting to warmer and milder springtime weather. This change in the weather makes it much easier to get outdoors for some fresh air and to soak up some vitamin D from the sun.
Walking is one of the most underrated exercises. People tend to think that walking isn’t good enough to help you get and stay fit, but it is an excellent option. Especially during a lockdown when you don’t have access to the gym and other equipment.
It is great to get outside if you can and breathe in the fresh air and soak up some sunlight. Simply walking for 30 minutes per day can help keep your body healthy, your weight in check, and prevent heart disease and other illnesses and conditions. So, grab your comfy walking shoes and go through a pleasant stroll through your neighborhood!
If you have a bike and the option to ride it outdoors, this is another ideal outdoor exercise idea. Biking is fun and exhilarating and something you can do on your own or with the whole family to stay active.
If you are looking for a more intense workout, riding in a place that has lots of hills and varying elevations will get your heart rate pumping even more. Hence, you burn more fat and calories. The act of peddling uphill will also build those leg muscles.
If you aren’t quite into the idea of becoming a new runner, then walking and running intervals are going to be your best friend. You can do intervals; they are customizable to your fitness levels and abilities.
Intervals burn more fat than only running or walking. The excessive speed versus periods of rest gets your heart working even more and will help you burn fat after you finish working out.
For example, your interval of walking and running may look something like this:
Walk at a slow pace for 3 minutes
Run at your pace for 1 minute
Over time you may want to increase the amount of time you run. Perhaps you will walk for 1 minute and run for 3 minutes. Maybe it will look more like 5 minutes of walking and 5 minutes of running. Have fun with your intervals, and try new times and speeds to challenge yourself and improve your fitness and running abilities!
And last but not least, we have workout circuits. Circuits are an excellent option for when you don’t have access to any equipment because you can mix doing cardio and bodyweight exercises. There are so many different moves you can do, and you can change it up all the time, so you are never getting bored.
It can be super easy to get tired of working out at home all the time, especially if you are doing the same workouts and circuits multiple times per week.
Therefore, go and have some fun and mix all these ideas!
