Living in the Lower Mainland we have an incredible gift of working out outside year around. Our weather is very mild, as long as you don’t mind getting a little wet. I have never minded the rain, after all I grew up playing soccer. Soccer players around here know how to embrace the rain. There are so many ways to enjoy the great outdoors and Sister Act Fitness wants to encourage you to do so. The weekend is a great time to explore your local backyard. Go for a walk, hike, bike ride, run, swim, skip, jump, paddleboard, canoe ride, etc. I think you get the picture. You do not have to go to the gym in order to get in a great workout. Sister Act Fitness does endorse lifting weights but you can also do great workouts with your body weight. Here was my workout today.
I did a 25 min run along the ocean and found a bench to do the following workout on it:
– 20 crunches (3 sets)
– 20 step ups (3 sets)
– 20 calf raises (3 sets)
I also did some sets of stairs. The best part about it… it was FREE!! You could also add some upper body exercises with tricep dips, pushups, planking, etc.
How are you going to get active this weekend? We want to hear from you!
