Hey guys, and happy Monday to you all! The weekend is officially over. Now it is time to move on into the work week, or should I say an extra hot week! Luckily I am at home or in the gym for the most part, but my daughter just walked into the room and let me know it is 107 degrees outside! After a long, wet winter and spring in California, we asked for this weather, and now we are getting it. Note to self, remember to drink plenty of water!
Now that warmer weather is finally here, I do enjoy going outside and exercising (preferably in the early mornings or evenings). As much as I love utilizing all of the equipment in the gym, there is a different strength you have to have to workout outdoors. One of my favorite places to exercise outside is at the track stadium. There is the track (of course), grass, and stairs. It is a personal trainers playground. I love to get back to my roots, and really add more “power” moves to my workout. By adding a squat jump here, or a step up there, you can really develop more strength, power, and not to mention, burn a lot of calories!
Want a great explosive and fat burning workout? Try this circuit below.
- Power skips
- Hurdle Hops (If you don’t have a hurdle, hop side to side over a line on the track)
- Split Jumps
- Step Ups
- Squat Jumps
Complete 3 Sets of this circuit, doing 12-15 reps of each exercises. Rest 1 minute between exercises, and 3 minutes between sets.
Adding a new power routine to your regular workout may be just what you need to get to challenge yourself, and move to the next level. The best part is there is no equipment required! In addition, you can always modify each exercises if needed. Listen to your body, and take extra time on your breaks if needed. You can do it, so let’s get to it!
Be well you guys.
Live. Love. Well & Fit.
