Agility + Strength + Nature
Summer is closing in, and with it comes sweet outdoor workouts.
Today’s focus is speed and agility, mainly in the legs. To accomplish this, I headed out to the woods, on the rivers edge, where the best workout’s are bound to occur.
Working out in the outdoors, especially near water, is absolutely invigorating. I find my workouts are longer, more creative and more enjoyable when I’m breathing fresh air.
Creativity was key in this workout. With all the terrain features, logs and paths around – it was easy to come up with some cool exercise modifications.
Terrain features like ledges or inclines can be used for jumping, as dragging a massive box jump through the woods is a little too extra. Fallen trees also make for fantastic improvised implements for both plyometrics, and agility training.
I brought out one piece of equipment, an agility ladder with rigid rungs. These rungs have a clip which allows the track to be rotated, and the rungs elevated to add a more dynamic element to the workout.
