Your local park provides a great space for workouts. Although you won’t have the equipment you’d get at a typical outdoor gym there are plenty of ideas you can use to have an awesome workout. Here are some of our favourites!
As well as for step ups, park benches are great for dips, easy-level planks and mountain climbers. You can also use them for push ups. Put your hands on the bench if you’re still working on mastering a full push up. Put your feet on the bench if you’re already a master!
Your local park could have a set of bars to allow you to include chin ups in your workout. If not, there are endless bodyweight exercises you can do. Try squats, lunges and variations (e.g. “jumping” or “walking”), front and side planks, push ups, sit ups, superman, hip raises and leg raises.
A resistance band can also go a long way for your park workout. Exercises you can do with a resistance band include shoulder press, upright row, bent over row, bicep curls, tricep extension, lat and front raises and more.
