A trail workout is one of my favorite ways to beat the gym. I love to be out in the elements. It makes me happy and it make me feel strong (and there is research to back this feeling. A lot of it.) I'm challenging my body but also learning to listen to it and accept what it's telling me (even if I don't like it).
If you're a local SLO resident, I did this workout on Felsman Loop. But any trail or path with benches along the way will work. And always take the time to soak in the view and observe nature. That's the part that's good for your soul.
Muscle Activation Sequence
*Do this as you walk the trail, ideally an open trail without protruding rocks for better stability
*Always check in with your core, make sure it's activated as you proceed.
First stop: Swing (I LOVE nature swings!)
Second Stop (Bench with a spectacular view)
*I brought a light weight, easy to shove in a pocket, band
Third Stop (Another bench with a spectacular view)
*This circuit was yoga inspired because I love yoga
If you use this or put together your own, tell me about it on my Fit by Nature SLO Facebook page!
I'm a mother, a wife, an athlete, a yogi, a nature lover but I am NOT a writer. So read at your own risk. I will post Sneak Peeks to my Circuit Saturdays and other workout ideas and inspirations. I will also likely write about what I'm learning, about life's struggles and triumphs (both big and little) and about this journey of life. Thanks for visiting and I'll see you at a workout soon!
