After another long winter, it’s time to get outside! The best way to get exercise is, by far, outside in the open air. Whether it be running, jogging, bicycling, kayaking or just walking. The sights, sounds and smells take your mind off what you’re doing, so exercise is actually easier and time just flyes by. If you’re away from the city and the air is clean, you’ll be doing a great favor to your lungs. Breathe deeply to blow out that wood burning or oil burning residue from your heating system and that stale air from your office building.
Don’t limit it to cardio either, add in some resistance training by dropping down on a soft spot and doing some push ups or sit ups. Use a rock or park bench for some tricep dips or step ups. Get in your calf raises and squats too. Bring a band with you and wrap it around a tree for some rows and chest presses. Don’t forget to stretch, too. Be imaginative and have fun, Spring is short in New England.
