Take your workout outside!

  |     |   Fitness

We know we know, why would you EVER want to leave your amazing apartment at Block 2 Lofts in Downtown Little Rock?  Well, some fresh air could even do a darkness dwelling vampire some good.  Read on for a great workout you can take outside!

Complete this set about three to five times, which should take you about 15-30 minutes depending on your level of fitness.  

 

Exercise #1: Power step-ups

Find an empty bench and do jumping step-ups.  Do 20 on each leg.  To do a jumping step-up:  place one foot on the bench and then jump up, driving through the forefoot of the elevated leg.  Switch legs in the air so that you land your opposite leg on the bench.  Find your rhythm and get to it!

Exercise #2:  Wall Sit

Find a wall or a tree to use for this exercise.  Simply sit against it for one minute, keeping your arms crossed against your chest and your thighs parallel to the ground.

Exercise #3: Pushups on a bench

Find a park bench and use it to perform pushups.  Do 20 before moving on to the next exercise.

Exercise #4:  Mountain Climbers

Get down in plank and start climbing that mountain.  Do these for one minute before moving on to the final exercise.

Exercise #5:  Bench tricep dips

For the last exercise, go back to your trusty bench and do 20 tricep dips.  Whew, what a workout!  Repeat the circuit as many times as you'd like to get a good workout in the great outdoors!
