Park Bench Workout

No equipment needed for this full body sweaty workout! Just use a bench in your local park or garden, alternatively you could use a step up or bench at the gym! I completed this workout 3 times for a full workout of about 25 minutes. It’s most fun if you do it with a friend (especially if you get embarrassed easily like me!).

Make sure your form is right, and if you need extra breaks between exercises then feel free to take them. Additionally, you could do an extra plank instead of the sit ups if the ground is really wet or muddy- just make sure to get those abs working!

These photos were taken by the lovely Abi in Hyde Park early one morning a few weeks ago. It was a gorgeous morning, with very few people out enjoying the sunshine. I’m wearing the Sweaty Betty Neon Floral Print athlete vest which I love.

    This looks like a great way to get a workout in on your daily run. I’ll have to give this a try! The only park benches in my area are in really public places, so I’m going to have to get over my fear of public embarrassment. I really like that no equipment is required for those exercises. That makes them so easy to do. I may have to start doing this 2 times in a row instead of three, like you’ve suggested. I’m still trying to get into shape. I really like your shoes, too!
