Skip the Gym: Park Workout

You’ll need your…

  • Slackline
  • Medicine Ball
  • Resistance Bands
  • Jump rope
  • Workout buddy

You won’t even miss the gym a little bit for this one. Bring your workout buddy and head to the nearest park (or maybe even your backyard!) and set up a slackline between two trees. Take turns spotting one another, or alternating between slackline and medicine ball if spotting isn’t required.

You can also turn the workout into a full circuit. Set up your equipment in “stations” around you and take turns with your buddy. 

Here’s a workout you can do with or without the suggested equipment. 

First, set up a couple stations for each of the exercises below– 

Station 1– Jump rope (don’t have one? Jump up and down as if you did)

Station 2– Crab walks (add a resistance band just above the knees)

Station 3- Push ups (want to challenge your balance? Put one hand up on your medicine ball and switch off hands each set)

Station 4– Bicycle crunches

Station 5– Squats (add a medicine ball and take it up a notch by doing goblet squats)

Station 6– Slack line (don’t have one? Try creating a balance challenge by doing Warrior 3)

Option 1. Start the stopwatch on your phone or a timer. Do each workout for 2 minutes and take a 30 second break in between. Do 4 sets and stretch to finish! 

Option 2. If you do not have a timer or do not want to use one, complete 25 reps for 4 sets. 

How’d you do? Let us know in the comments below! And don’t forget–we’ll be back next week with another outdoor workout you can modify or do as-is. See you then!
