Fall is my favorite season for outdoor workouts. I find crisp days with low humidity to be energizing and love the beautiful scenery created by the changing colors of the leaves.
Last Thursday I wanted to get a cardio and weights workout in but had no desire to be in the gym on a gorgeous fall afternoon. I got creative and put together a cardio strength circuit that could be performed at our neighborhood park. The great thing about this workout is that you don’t need any special equipment – just your own body weight and a playground, park or even your own backyard! I guarantee that your heart rate will be through the roof and your muscles will be trembling.
Fall Cardio Strength Circuit Workout
(See video below for demonstrations of each exercise.)
– 12 t-pushups (6 each side)
– 25 jump squats
– 15 tricep dips
– Walking lunges (20 down, 20 back)
– 20 burpees
– Single leg squats (15 each leg)
– 15 hanging knee tucks (if you don’t have anything to hang from, sub in another ab exercise)
– Sprint (25 yards down and back)
***Perform circuit 3 times through.***
Let me know if you try the workout. I would love your feedback! 🙂
