Note: This is a transcription of the intro to the video: ‘22 Outdoor Exercise Ideas’.
I am in the United States at the moment at a place called Prescott (Arizona). Just had a fantastic workout at a playground nearby Watson Lake. I thought I would show you what it is that I have been carrying in my suitcase since we have been travelling, so you can see what I use for a work-out.
1/ First thing I have is an exercise tube with handles (resistance tubing) on the end. There are so many different brands of this that you can get. I really like this one as it’s got an encasing over the top in case it snaps.
2/ Second thing I use is a suspension training strap system. Once again there are so many of them that you can get. This one is an Australian-made one called ‘The Ultimate Instrument’. It’s very simple and it all fits inside a little bum bag or ‘fanny pack’ as the Americans call it 🙂 . It’s actually got door anchors in it as well to use in your hotel room if you don’t have access to somewhere like this. (not available for sale anymore)
3/ I also use a skipping rope, especially if I want to do a strength endurance type workout to basically just keep the movement running. Great for doing a skipping set in-between a set of exercises.
So it is really quite simple! You’ll see the videos that we have just made with the exercises that we have done. Find a beautiful area like this and go for gold.
