TONE UP FOR SUMMER WITH THESE OUTDOOR WORKOUTS!

Hey you! What are you doing!!? There are only 3 and a half months left of summer and you haven’t had an outside workout yet!? Well lucky for you, I am here to give you a little motivation! If you find yourself having trouble figuring out what type of workouts to do outside, I am here to change that! It’s time to break out of those 4 walls and low ceilings and into an ambiance of blue sky’s, hot weather, nature, a beach, and some vitamin D! The outside world is like the Disney land of workout space, with an endless amount of possibilities!

Take my hand, now please let go… I am about to detail a few ways you can use awesome outdoor equipment to get creative, have fun and take your outside workout to the next level!

COREFX Battle Ropes:

Working out outside and not utilizing a Battle Rope to help you burn fat and get ripped is like going to a pool and forgetting your bathing suit at home… like come on are you serious!? This piece of equipment is a must have! All you need is somewhere to wrap the long rope around like a tree stump, the legs on a park bench, a street pole, your boyfriend or girlfriends ankles … (okay maybe not the last one) but you get my drift! Find somewhere to wrap the rope around and bring the 2 handles together in front of whatever you used to wrap the rope around and voila! There are many different ways you can use the battle ropes. Check below for a few ways to use the Battle Ropes with your next outside workout!

Alternating arms

  1. Sit down in a squat position
  2. Hold both ends of the battle rope in each hand
  3. Alternate both arms moving them up and down with force
  4. Continue at FULL speed and power for 10 -15 seconds
  5. Go for 15 seconds, rest for 20 seconds and repeat x10

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1 arm rope slam

  1. Grab a handle of the battle rope
  2. Sit down into a squat position
  3. Explode out raising your arm in the air as high as it can go while extending your legs and upper body all at the same time
  4. From your extended position slam the rope down as hard as you can so it hits the ground
  5. Repeat the above motions from 1-4 with as much power and force as you can!! If you are not tired after 15 seconds max your intensity is too low!
  6. Go for 20 seconds and rest for 20 seconds and repeat x10

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

COREFX Wall Ball:

This is a great fat burning body sculpting weapon every outside training warrior should have in their arsenal! All you need is a flat surface you can throw it at. I recommend a wall from a near by building or a fence! Get creative! If you can’t find a wall or a fence there are also many ways to use this outdoor workout tool without needing a flat surface!!

Squat with power throw:

  1. Find an open area
  2. Hold the ball directly in front of you
  3. Lower your body into a squat
  4. Power up and explode upwards from your squat throwing the ball as high in the air as possible over your head
  5. Run to the ball as fast as you can and repeat steps 1-4.
  6. Remember to engage your core/ abs by keeping a neutral spine and tightening them up during the power up and follow through over your head.
  7. Go for 30 seconds and then rest for 30 seconds and repeat x10

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wall ball force throw:

  1. Find a wall or something that can absorb a hit from a wall ball. This doesn’t have to be the wall from games of thrones, all you need is a flat surface! Fences work great too
  2. Stand in front of the wall with the ball in front of your chest
  3. Squat down keeping your spine neutral while holding the ball at chest level.
  4. Explode out from your squat throwing the ball directly forward by extending your arms towards the wall from the squat position.
  5. Use your core legs and upper body to power through the throw!
  6. Repeat steps 1-4
  7. Go for 30 seconds and rest for 30 seconds and repeat x10

REPLACE YOUR WORKOUT WITH THIS FAT BURNING CIRCUIT!

REPLACE YOUR WORKOUT WITH THIS FAT BURNING CIRCUIT!

Hey! Is it possible to feel something you can’t touch?

Well I can guarantee you that the skipping rope is something you feel long after you have put the rope down!

If you are wondering how you can transform those tedious and boring workouts you’ve been doing into something WAY more fun…such as going down a roller coaster at TOP speed? If so, then keep reading!

Ok, so call me crazy but there’s something really cool about freestyling the skipping rope that can tap into important body systems that will help you build muscle and burn fat. The anaerobic and the aerobic system are 2 systems that are directly involved when we incorporate the skipping rope. In more simple terms, the more intense and explosive your skipping workouts are will determine how likely you are to use the anaerobic system. The benefits of this include an increase in fat burning in a shorter period of time, as it creates more demand in energy from your body which translates into a greater need for epoc – excess post oxygen consumption, or poetically named “afterburn effect.” By popular demand it puts your body in a higher metabolic rate for a longer period of time and requires more time to bring your energy back to normal. This then results in an increase amount of fat burning post exercise! An example of this would be high knee jumps with the COREFX Thin-Grip Speed Rope.

OREFX Thin-Grip Speed Rope

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Before You Jump:

  1. Maintain your balance by looking straight ahead.
  2. Maintain an upright posture.
  3. Maintain your weight on the balls of your feet.
  4. Jump only high enough to clear the rope (approx. 1 inch off the ground).
  5. Land lightly on the balls of your feet.
  6. Keep your elbows near your sides.
  7. Maintain your elbow joints at a 45-degree angle.
  8. When turning the rope, make 2-inch circles with your wrists.
  9. Do not sacrifice good form for speed.

Alternating Single-Foot Jumps:

Once you’ve gotten comfortable jumping with both feet at the same time, try alternating feet, like you are jogging in place while the rope passes beneath you on each step. It will take some practice to get the hang of this, and it may feel awkward at first, but in time you should feel just as natural jumping in this fashion as with both feet together.

In addition, to alternating feet on every jump, I recommend practicing repeated single-foot jumps. For example, perform two left-foot jumps followed by two right-foot jumps. Again, stay light on your feet and keep your weight toward your toes.

Now that both your form and technique is where it should be, it’s time to take things to the next level! To burn fat, it is important to incorporate a plyometric form of training which involves explosive movement, which can further increase the oxygen demand for the body, and allow for you to rely on your good buddy the anaerobic system! Your goal is to jump with your feet 1/4 to 1/2 inches off the ground, while moving the rope around your head and under your feet at a comfortable pace.

How to complete high knee jumps:

  1. Jump up knees first and tuck your knees to your chest
  2. At the same time while holding onto the handle bars of the rope complete a revolution so the rope goes over your head in the front forward direction and under your feet.
  3. Repeat this without pausing for 30seconds -60seconds (rest for 20-30seconds in between and repeat x10.)
  4. To make this easier include small jumps in between each knee tuck where your feet only get off the ground 1/4 to 1/2 inch to catch your breath and prepare for the next knee tuck.
  5. To make this harder you can complete a double revolution with the skipping rope so that the rope travels up over your head and under your feet 2x before your few touch the ground after your knee tuck.

For all of your training levels there are a variety of skipping ropes that will fit your specific needs and help you achieve your goals!

It’s GO TIME. Let’s see what you can do!
