4 outdoor workouts to try this fallBy Emma Fredriksson | bachelor's degree in sport science and health, physical therapist student and bikini fitness athlete August 2017
Weight Training at Outdoor Gyms
Gym memberships can be quite expensive, so why not use the outdoor gyms that are available? Here you can find the most necessary equipment for a really good workout with both strength- and cardio training. Do you have an outdoor gym near you? Why not jog there, do some strength exercises and then jog back home? A complete workout that doesn’t need to take that long.
Circuit training is a great exercise form since you can vary it in so many different ways. Put together some exercises (some cardio training exercises and some strength training exercises), make a playlist with music you like and bring your friends to the nearest park and do some circuits together! Sweaty and fun - and a great way to hang out with your friends.
Park Bench Training
Can you get a good workout with just a park bench as a tool? Yes! There are many exercises that can be done with the help of a bench: squats, push-ups, dips, step-ups, jumping, hip thrusters… with a quick Google search you can put together a couple of exercises that will make a fun and sweaty workout. Why not stop to do a few exercises on a park bench while you’re out power walking?
Jumping rope is a cheap and easy exercise tool that everyone should have. Do you remember how sweaty and tired you became by skipping as a child? That’s because skipping is an incredibly good exercise form where you really get your heart rate up. At the same time, this type of exercise is very fun and you’ll easily forget that you’re actually working out. If you don’t have a jumping rope, we highly recommend you getting one for fall. Why not have skipping as one of the exercises in your circuit training?
The dream of a sculpted and firm butt is nowadays shared by both men and women. Mother nature seems to have blessed some individuals with a stunning backside more or less for free, while others must dedicate a lot of time and effort in order to get that booty they're dreaming of.
Coconut oil is one of the quite few foods that can rightfully be included in the "superfoods" category. Its unique combination of fatty acids has a number of positive health effects, not least because of the fatty acid called lauric acid which is the most important fatty acid for humans and our general well-being. It is mainly thanks to this that coconut oil has gotten its reputation of being something as close to nature's gold since this fatty acid gives the oil its antibacterial properties and its ability to fight bacteria.
After our leg muscles, one of the largest groups of muscle is our back. The back can be divided into deep and superficial muscles where the deep muscles consist of those who move and stabilize the spine. The superficial ones are most commonly referred to as m. latissimus dorsi, m. trapezius, and the shoulder blade muscles m. rhomboideus minor, m. rhomboideus major, as well as the long, straight muscle m. erector spinae. These are the ones mentioned in daily speech and are what we usually target in the world of bodybuilding.
