Time for Outdoor Workout!

Posted on May 21, 2014 by Anna-Maria Båth

The summer is here and it’s about time (if you haven’t already started) to take your Bodyweight Training System with you and do some outdoor training!

When you do your outdoor workout you get sunlight, vitamin D and fresh air at the same time, which is good for both body and soul. By exercising outdoors you become happier, more energetic and healthier. It also gives you more energy, it relaxes, it makes us more positive and additionally outdoor workout makes us feel less angry, annoying and tense then when you're training indoors. Maybe you think we made all this up? Oh no, this is hard fact from a study made by researchers from the Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry*

So – what are you waiting for? Bring your Bodyweight Training system with you to your local park, high school, beach or even your backyard! Grab your Bodyweight band and head into the great outdoors.

With your Bodyweight Training System you have all you need for a successful workout outdoors. You can easily attach the straps on to any tree, light or goal pole or similar, just always be assure it can support your bodyweight.

For optimal use, choose a workout area roughly measuring 2,5 meters (8 feet) long by 2 meter (6 feet) wide. Always be sure you're on a flat, non-slip surface, so you don’t hurt yourself. For best results use an overhead anchor point that's about 2,5 meters off the ground and strong enough to support your own bodyweight.

Start by wrapping the anchor band around the anchor point. Attach the straps by using the carabiner. Use the buckles to slide the straps. Attach the handles and the Bodyweight Training system is ready to use! Always remember to weight-test your bands before using it by pulling hard on it.

GOOD LUCK, hope to see you out there!
