Get-Ripped-Anywhere Outdoor Workout from Muscle + Fitness

"Your body weight can be used to generate any number of training stimuli. Instead of going heavy with weights, you can use explosive, jumping movements to recruit fast-twitch muscle fibers. Rather than performing high reps, you can slow down the tempo you move at, forcing your muscles to stabilize you for an endurance challenge (called “time under tension”). Finally, you can do a circuit of bodyweight moves just as easily as you can do the machine circuit in your gym, but using your whole body and burning more calories as a result.

Yes, you can get all these benefits in just a few weeks by exercising in the great outdoors. You won’t miss the gym till the fall."
