Resistance Band Outdoor Workout Ideas

park-benchesI’m sure you’ve found yourself working out with resistance bands indoors while it’s gorgeous outside.

There’s nothing easier than justifying staying in your comfort zone. Maybe you feel self-conscious about working out in a public park.  Maybe you feel out of step with what others are doing.

Well I’m here to tell you to snap out of it and go outside anytime you can.

If you get out of the house you’ll be more likely to workout longer and more rigorously as you’ll want to make the trip worth your while, no matter how quick the commute was. You’ll take in some nice scenery thus making your workout time a more enriching experience. Plus, you’ll free yourself from the multitude of distractions found around the home.

The following video featuring band enthusiast Dave Schmitz contains some great ideas that will change up the locations you choose to workout in, and keep things interesting.

Here’s a sampling as well as a few I added to the list:

  • Jungle gym
  • Swingset
  • Soccer goal post
  • Pitcher mound
  • Football goal post
  • Tree
  • Automobile (w/ door attachement)
  • Basketball net post
  • Park bench
  • Sign post
  • Fence bars by the river/lake

So there you have it. Now get out there and find more objects to wrap your band around. All the world is a gym!
