5 Tips For Working Out Outside

I LOVE being outside. LOVE! I feel better. I move better. And that’s not by coincidence.

Here’s some amazing benefits of getting outdoors as much as you can.

And I love working out outside. It just has a different feel, for me, versus being in a gym (or even working out at home).

I get asked for tips, especially now in the winter time, for working out/running outside. I think these tips can apply for any season or temperature.

1. WARMUP BEFORE GOING OUT

You want to get your heart rate up a bit. Get a little bit of a sweat in. Get your body loose and ready to go. All before you step outside.

This only applies if you’re going directly from your home to outside. If you’re driving to a location, then do these things there. But warm up is important.

2. Dress For The End

You workout clothes is super important for being outside. But the tip is, to dress for how you’ll feel in the middle to end of your workout, not the beginning.

In winter, you don’t want scarfs, gloves, a coat, and now you’re completely overdressed in the middle of your run.

This one takes trial and error to figure out.

3. Stay Hydrated

There is nothing worse than being in the middle of a workout, and cramping up. Being hydrated in the summer makes more sense to most, but during the colder months, it’s just as important, and you may not even realize it till it’s too late.

Fluids before, during, and after your outdoor workout.

4. All you need is water.

Goes with the last tip. But, for most outdoor workouts/runs, water will work just fine.

Now, if you’re doing longer (hour +) endurance type workouts, then aim for something more. A Gatorade/Powerade, or something similar, can help out here.

5. DON’T OVER COMPLICATE THINGS

You want to make your workouts as convenient as possible. It’s a simple hack to keep you doing it.

If it’s easier to just step outside and go run, jump rope, ride your bike… do that.

Don’t always aim for the long drive to the beautiful scenery just to workout. It’s nice occasionally, but it can lead to an obstacle when the weather isn’t as nice.

This are the 5 tips I have. If you are a frequent outdoor workouter (did I make that up?), let me know a tip you use.
