Here at Myvitamins, we’ve got 5 outdoor no-equipment exercises you can do anywhere to improve your workouts and help you reach your fitness goals.
Skip the lift and take the stairs, picking up the pace for maximum calorie burn.
Don’t skip a step either; contrary to popular belief ascending one step at a time actually burns more calories than leaping up two at a time. Climbing down also helps tone the back of your pins and glutes, so don’t skip the descent either.
Outdoor Yoga is a great way to increase your flexibility whilst improving your muscle strength and tone. It’s also great for calming your mood and helping you prepare for a stressful day ahead.
Not convinced for Winter? London’s Sky Garden, situated at the top of the ‘Walke Talkie’ building holds morning Yoga classes for just £10 a ticket. Find your Zen in the big city whilst watching the sunrise. Perfect.
Walk this way
Not quite ready to run? No problem! They say a thousand-mile journey begins with a single step, so put your best foot forward and hit the pavement. Start by downloading a pedometer app to your smart phone and aim for 10,000 steps a day.
Over one week that can burn nearly 3,500 calories. That’s a medium cheese pizza AND a pint of ice cream!
Sprint Like You Stole It
Kim K and her personal trainer love a good sprint session. Find yourself a hill with a decent gradient and HIIT it hard, Sprint your way to the top and jog down.
Rest for 30 seconds and then head up again. Repeat 10 times before collapsing into a sweaty heap.
Park Bench Push-Up
Why sit when you can get fit?
Placing your hands on the seat of the bench with your legs extended out into a raised plank position, lower your chest towards the bench using your arms and extend back out.
Repeat for 12 reps.
