In the Backyard or Park
“Exercising on different terrains in the great outdoors boosts fitness because you’re always challenging your muscles in new ways,” says Tina Vindum, author of Tina Vindum’s Outdoor Fitness. The San Francisco-based fitness instructor created these three fresh-air workout moves.
First minute: Rotate ankles three times each. Then bend one knee toward chest, with thigh parallel to ground; straighten leg and balance on other foot. Do this three times for each leg. Do hip circles three times (as if using a hula hoop) with hands on hips and feet shoulder-width apart.
Next two minutes: Roll your shoulders back and down; lift your ribcage; and do knee lifts, extending arms in front of you at shoulder height.
