fall season, get a workout without even knowing it! Some activities
that you would do already can be just as fulfilling as a boring workout
at the gym or a run by lonesome. After you won't even realize how
beneficial they are because you will be having so much fun.
Mountain biking – It’s an easy and fun way to get outside and zap
calories fast. Find a trail and get wheeling! Biking puts less stress on
your joints than running outside or on a treadmill and can help
strengthen your endurance level, to boot.
Pogo sticks – The childhood toy can be just as useful as a hardcore
cardio workout with out having to be stuck inside. The constant jumping
strengthens your legs and core. Gave yours away? Hop for 15 min. on a
Raking leaves – Joining family or friends in the great rake is a fab
way to build up your arm muscles. By raking leaves for just an hour you
can burn up to 400 calories! (Way more than you could burn by going on a
walk.) To make it even more productive, attach a weight to the pole of
the rake for extra results.
Basketball – Join your bro or drag Dad outside for a quick game
that’ll give your lower and upper bod a tough workout. Running across
the court will benefit your lower limbs, while all that passing and
shooting will pump up those ‘ceps. Score!
