A few weeks ago I blogged about “Does your workout lack intensity?” In the blog I talked about:
-Focusing on quality over quantity
-Keeping your workouts between 30-40 minute duration
One of the ways to accomplish the most from your workouts in a short amount of time is doing compound exercises. “Compound exercises are movements that require more than 1 joint and more than 1 muscle group”. (www.muscleandstrength.com)
The following video shows a list of compound exercises that you can try outdoors for your next workout. For this workout, all you need is a sandbag or a medicine ball and a resistance band. So go out, try the workout with your family or friends or by yourself, enjoy some sun, and don’t forget to apply sunblock 🙂
* This is a circuit workout. Please complete a full circuit of 1 minute or 20 repetitions per exercise before moving to the next one. Rest for 1-2 minutes once the entire circuit is completed. Repeat the circuit once more or as you deem fit.
**Always remember to warm-up for 3-5 minutes prior to your workout, and for a cool-down, stretch for 5 minutes. Please consult your physician before trying the workout.
