Take Your Workout Outside

It's cold in Lancaster today but here's a bodyweight workout you can do outside when it's nice. Remember to take water with you and you might want a towel for the last two exercises.

Warm up first and then try this:

10-15 reps of each exercise (or per side if it’s a single leg exercise)

· Prisoner Squats
· Pushups (If you can't do standard pushups, use a park bench, picnic table, etc. and do Incline Pushups.) The lower, the more difficult.
· Prisoner Static Lunge (Also known as Split Squat or Stationary Lunge)
· Mountain Climbers
· Lying Single Leg Hip Lift
· Plank - Hold as long as possible, up to 60 seconds.

Rest 30-60 seconds as needed and repeat up to 5 times.

If you're a beginner, feel free to start out with 8 reps or less per exercise. Don't go crazy but make sure you challenge yourself.

Let me know what you think.
