School Holiday workout ...

There's only so many times that you can use the excuse that you can't fit your workout in because it's school holidays ...

You just have to make the time and sometimes think outside of the box ... or maybe just outside, at the playground, or at the park.  Get the kids out of the house, into the sunshine and let them run off what seems like an endless supply of energy!

And just so that you can't use the excuse you don't know what exercises to do ... here's one I prepared earlier!  You can do this workout outside at the park with the kids, at the playground or if all else fails and the weather is yuck like it is here today ... at home!

Let's call it the School Holiday Boredom Buster ...

Warm up ... if you are outside at the park or playground go for a light jog or brisk walk around the play area where the kids are.  Do this for about 5 minutes as you want to be nice and warm, especially in this chilly weather.  If you are at home some jogging on the spot or skipping will warm you up nicely!

Each set consists of 4 exercises.  Complete each exercise for 20 reps, resting for 10 seconds between each exercise.

Set 1

Squat ... watch your alignment.
Push ups ... choose your level, knees or toes. 
Star Jumps
Plank hold ... choose your level again, knees or toes and hold for at least 30 seconds

Rest for 1 minute

Set 2

Walking lunge ... be sure that your front knee does not travel past your lead toe
Tricep Dips ... on a bench or chair if at home
Skater Jump ... just step it wide rather than jump if you need
Mountain Climbers

Rest for 1 minute

Head off around the playground again for a light 2 minute jog or brisk walk. 

Repeat Sets 1 and 2 again.  If you are feeling like a third round, go for it!

Make sure you warm down and have a stretch.

Be aware that the kids may want to join you in this workout!  What better way to tire them out keep them active!

Have a great workout!
