Park Bench Workout

fullsizeoutput_ae

Yesterday I had such a fun afternoon with my lovely friend Ella – it was a beautiful day so instead of working out inside a gym we decided to use the park, specifically a bench. This  workout can be done individually but we did this as a partner workout (obviously someone had to film!) We took turns doing each exercise on the bench, and while one of us was completing their reps for one exercise on the bench, the other skipped. (Highly recommend investing in a skipping rope – it’s great cardio and they’re very cheap to buy). If you’re completing this workout on your own, try skipping for about 40s-1minute in between bench exercises.

Working out in a gym is great and of course there’s more access to equipment, but it has got nothing on working out in the afternoon sun with a nice breeze by the river! Thanks so much Ella for being my camera lady and workout partner! (Find Ella’s beautiful blog and her Instagram here).

 

||PARK BENCH WORKOUT|| ~ I had such a fun afternoon with @beingella – It was a beautiful day so instead of working out inside a gym we decided to use the park, specifically a bench.

We took turns doing each exercise on the bench, and while one of us was using the bench, the other skipped 💦 Working out in a gym is great and of course there's more access to equipment, but it has nothing on working out in the afternoon sun with a nice breeze by the river! ☀️Thanks so much Ella for being my camera lady and workout partner! 😘💞 Give this workout a go: ~ 1.) Declining cross-body mountain climbers x 20 • 2.) Declining press-ups (if you can't do these, have a go at the inclining variations that I've demonstrated in the video) x 15 • 3.) Tricep dips x 15 • 4.) Bench squat jumps x 15 (land in a squat both ways if you can!) • 5.) Step up + knee raise (x 15 per side) • 6.) Single leg squat + elbow to knee rotation (x 15 per side) • 7.) Bulgarian split squats (x 15 per side) – add a pulse if you want to! • 8.) Glute bridges x 15 (add a resistance band to make it more challenging) • Skip whilst your partner is completing their reps for each exercise (or do 40s skipping intervals if you're on your own) Do 2 rounds, 3 if you want more! Try single leg skipping (without the double bounce to feel the burn!) 👌🏻
