This week (and next) is spring break for my kids and we are going camping with a large group of friends for a few days. I’ll probably be eating things I shouldn’t (I signed up to bring chips…DUMB.) and eating more than I should so to relieve some of the guilt I’m bringing along a workout plan. Problem is we are pulling a pop-up twice the size of our already over-worked mini-van (respect the van) so I can’t pack up any weights or equipment or we’ll end up camping on the side of the road. So I made up a workout I can do at a picnic table with no equipment involved.
Full Body Picnic Table Workout
5 minute jog to warm-up
Burpees – 10 (I have a love/hate relationship with burpees.)
Step Ups – 30 each leg
Push Ups (feet on bench) – 15
Bulgarian Split Squats – 15 each leg
Tricep Dips (hands on bench) – 25
Explode Lunges – 20 each leg (Lower yourself into a lunge position but instead of coming back to the stating position slowly, spring off of your front leg.)
Pike Push Up – 10 (Feet are on the bench like the first push up but walk your hands closer to the bench forming a v with your body.)
Repeat 2-3 times. If you don’t yet have the upper body strength for all the push up substitute with traditional or even girl style push ups. And of course adjust reps to your fitness level.
Don’t forget to set some daily and weekly goals if you haven’t already. Swimsuit season is only a few short months away!
