We shared a similar workout to this on our social pages a few weeks ago and it got some great feedback so here’s another outdoor workout which you can do either with your buddy or as a group (remember to respect social distancing guidance). I love group or buddy outdoor workouts as you can motivate each other through the workout and have a giggle whilst doing it.

You don’t need any outdoor equipment for this workout, if you have a mat then bring it along but it’s not essential!

You’ll need a field or park with enough room for you to run at least 20m (20m out, 20m back). I’d suggest walking or jogging to the field/park for your warm up.

I’m going to focus this outdoor workout on just two people doing it, but you could easily adapt for larger groups.

Round 1

Person A – Sprints x 6 (out and back = 2 sprints).

Person B – Walking Lunges (until person A has completed the sprints)

Swap, then keep repeating until you have both done 4 sprints, then 2 sprints.

Round 2

Person A – Sprints x 6

Person B – Press Ups

Swap, then keep repeating until you have both done 4 sprints, then 2 sprints.

Round 3

Person A – Sprints x 6

Person B – Sumo Squats (feet wider than shoulder width)

Swap, then keep repeating until you have both done 4 sprints, then 2 sprints.

Round 4

Person A – Sprints x 6 

Person B – Plank – if you’re strong at plank at variations such as lifting one foot from the floor, gecko plank, walking walking planks. 

Swap, then keep repeating until you have both done 4 sprints, then 2 sprints.

Round 5

Person A – Sprints x 6

Person B – Glute Bridges

Swap, then keep repeating until you have both done 4 sprints, then 2 sprints.

Finish with a walk home to cool down and then some stretches for the quads, glutes, hamstrings, calfs, chest and back. Holding each stretch for around 15 seconds.

Here’s to some nice weather so you can give this outdoor workout a try this Summer!
