Killer Outdoor Circuit Workout

I hope you are all having an awesome weekend so far.  I kicked off my Saturday with this awesome outdoor workout with some friends.  When the weather gets nicer I like to take some of my workouts outside to change things up.  One of my friends twisted my arm to lead an outdoor bootcamp workout, so I thought I would share it with you.  It was awesome and fun.  

The focus of this workout was to really push yourself.  Not to focus on anyone else but YOU.  I don’t know about you but sometimes I find that I am trying to keep up with other people and not truly focused on how hard I can push myself.  Each circuit in this workout is 10 minutes.  The goal is to complete as many rounds as possible while maintaining proper form, but still pushing yourself.  

 If you have a park with a hill that works awesome.  If not, just use an open grassy area or track for the running section.

I was sweaty and feeling the burn when we finished.  This is a KILLER workout.  It is a lot of fun when you get a bunch of people who can push you to work harder as well.

Outdoor Park Boot Camp Workout

I hope you all are enjoying your Labor Day weekend.  It’s nice to have an extra day to get stuff done.  Since I didn’t have to workout super early today, I decided to change things up and invite some of my friends to an outdoor workout in the park.  A change of scenery can really motivate you and push you on a different level.
