With no technology over the long holiday weekend, I spent a good chunk of Saturday morning working out in our backyard planting perennials, pulling weeds, moving dirt with my parents. My parents and I have an obsession with all things that involve getting our fingers in the dirt! Dan was kind enough to watch the boys so I could get a little dirty.
While helping my dad, I started pushing the yard cart full of dirt towards the back corner of our yard. I stopped and said aloud this would make for a great workout post…he laughed and probably thought I was nuts. But I’m always trying to think of ways to get fitness to become FUN and easy for everyone! It hit me, this is perfect!
Now I know some of you may not have a big yard like us..be thankful 6 acres is a lot to mow :)…but you can adapt to your own yard. Use my ideas as inspiration to fuel your workout! If you need help coming up with modifications for your yard just let me know!
For this specific workout you’ll need yard cart or wheelbarrow and one or two watering cans. Make sure you have water in the watering cans and if possible have the wheelbarrow a bit filled with dirt of put a bag of soil something in it for added weight.
Start by warming up for 5 minutes…either jog or walk around your yard. Once warmed up try this circuit workout.
What is one piece of yard equipment you would use for a exercise move? I want to add onto this!
