School Bleacher Workout
Your local high school football team maybe in the offseason, but it’s field and bleachers offer a great place for you to get in an intense outdoor winter workout. Start by running up and down the bleachers five times in 1 or 2 minutes. Then do as many seated bleacher dips as you can in 45 seconds. After a short rest move into bleacher jumps and pushups. From the standing position jump up to a bleacher, situate your feet so that they are square on the bleacher and then do a Push-Up. Repeat until you get to the top. This will give you a great full-body workout. Next, do prone planks and side planks on the bottom bleacher. Do as many as you can in 45 seconds. Do three sets of each exercise for a full body outdoor workout.
Chances are your local park or playground won't be busy if it’s cold; this is good for you if you want to get outside to workout. The park is full of equipment — perfect for a HIIT workout.
Pull-Ups: Find the monkey bars and do 10 Pull-Ups and on the last rep hold for 10-20 seconds to make the exercise more intense.
Bench Step-Ups: Find the park bench and do as many Step-Ups as you can in 60 seconds. This will give a tough lower-body endurance workout.
