Workout Outdoors Using these Band Exercises

Looking For A Change of Pace?

Exercise outside.

There are several benefits to training outdoors. The key is making sure you get the challenge you need and have fun doing it. Any workout that challenges you and is enjoyable will be a workout you will repeat multiple times.

One of my favorite places to exercise outside using bands is at a playground. Not only does it provide tons of connections for band training, but it also allows for some unique exercises.

If you have a playground nearby, the following video will provide you with 20 one band exercises to choose from to create multiple workouts. Just make sure you have the band resistance you need to optimally challenge the muscles for great definition.
