The pandemic 2020 has forced everyone to ditch their gym routines and choose indoor workouts rather than their everyday rigorous exercises. However, if you have a lawn or a park nearby then you can go for outdoor workouts too. Indoor and outdoor exercises have similar benefits but outdoor workouts are a step ahead in so extra-amazing benefits.

An outdoor workout help in decreasing stress, improve concentration, makes you active by increasing metabolism, and helps in burning some extra amount of fat.

In the current situation, it is not feasible to join any gym or a fitness class. Therefore, you can consider doing an outdoor workout and lose that extra weight effectively.

Some of the best outdoor workouts you can do for free and without any equipment are:

1) High knees:

This is one of the easiest and simplest outdoor workouts. Begin with standing straight with your feet hip-width apart. Keep your chest straight and feet firm on the ground. Now, lift your right leg such that your knees reach up to your chest and vice versa. Do this for 15-20 minutes every day for the best results.

2) Squat-high kick:

This exercise is similar to your regular squats but the difference here is you push your leg forward like that of a kick; while going back to your normal position. After each squat push one leg forward like that of a kick while standing up. Repeat the same with another leg and vice versa.

3) Grass grabbers:

Begin with positioning your body similar to doing squats. Now place one hand on the ground as your knees are bent and back is straight. Stand up straight and jump on your feet such that you land back into your normal position. Repeat this for 15 minutes.

4) Plank:

I’m sure you know about the famous plank exercise that is a challenge for almost everyone. Begin with lifting your body with all your fours i.e., the feet and hands held firmly against the ground.

Make sure you don’t bend your knees and your body is straight. Hold in this position for 30 seconds and repeat this for 5 minutes.

5) Single-leg bicycles:

The single-leg bicycle exercise is a bit difficult but there is no harm in practicing and making your body perfect for it. Lie down on your back with your legs extended above your hips and then place your arms behind your head.

Now make sure your back is straight and then begin with bringing your left leg towards your right elbow. Repeat this on the other side and practice the same for 15 minutes.

6) Plank chest tap:

This exercise can be done in both- indoors as well as outdoors. Begin by positioning your body in the regular plank position and keep your arms firmly against the ground.

Now, touch your left shoulder with your right hand and vice versa. Repeat this for 10 minutes every day.

7) Reverse lunge:

Stand with your back straight and feet firm. Place your hands on your hip and then take a long step. Now, bend both your knees and hold in the same position for 5 seconds. Repeat this on the other side and vice versa.

8) Side shuffle:

This is one of the best outdoor workouts than you can do. Stand straight with your feet apart with hip-width distance and then take 2-3 huge steps with your right leg towards the side.

Now slide your left leg towards the right and move your body. Repeat this on the other side for 15 minutes.

9) Long Jumps:

Do a long jump the length of your mat, and then step back to your starting position.

10) Mountain Climbers:
