Ahhh . . .. The birds are chirping, the grass is green, and the snow is gone! It’s now time to start exercising outdoors and maybe even participate in a few local 5Ks. You may think, Ah! I can ditch that gym membership and exercise outdoors! Well, I agree . . .  kind-of. Get outside, but don’t quit strength training. The exercises you do at a gym are important!  You need to keep up with exercises that will strengthen your core, improve your balance, and keep all muscles firm and strong! Walking, running, biking, swimming . . . these are all wonderful activities for your body. However, left alone, they can increase your risk for injury and inhibit your overall success. Here’s a basic idea of how to fit it all in. If this doesn’t work for you, feel free to give me a call and I can create a customized plan that works perfectly for you!

(Consult with your medical professional before starting any exercise program.)

Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 Day 4 Day 5
Outdoor Cardio: 30-60 min Running, Walking, Biking, or Swimming Strength Training at the gym:

60 min Lower body and Abs

Outdoor Cardio: 30-60 min Running, Walking, Biking, or Swimming Strength Training at the gym:

60 min Upper body and Abs

Outdoor Cardio: 30-60 min Running, Walking, Biking, or Swimming

 

**Don’t forget to warm up and cool down with each form of exercise.

**One more thing . . .. hydrate, hydrate, HYDRATE!!! (Drink half your weight in ounces of water.)
