Try out these outdoor friendly exercises, 30 seconds of each, 4 times through.
This is a challenging core exercise. With your hands planted and shoulders moving through large ranges, your pecs and shoulder muscles are getting a good workout too. Keep your glutes solid to ensure that your back doesn’t extend excessively. A nice long and controlled kick through will challenge your core muscles further - getting you beach ready in no time.
Elevated Squat Thrust
Generating power through the glutes and hamstrings, this is a great move to speed up your metabolism. Elevating the hips once again gives your shoulders a good workout as your legs drive their flexion and extension.
Rotational Step Up
In terms of co-ordination, this is a challenging move. The rotation of the legs is actually a great way to stimulate rotation through the spine, making this a great core workout. The gluts are obviously driving a lot of power and movement too. This makes this exercise a great metabolic booster
