Now that it’s getting warmer outside, it’s definitely the perfect time to start taking your workouts outdoors. And of course, fitness plus friends equals fun! Grab your #SweatSquad and put the cool factor back into your workout routine with these tricks:
1. Pick the perfect time.
3 P.M. is reported to be the absolute hottest time of the day, so when coordinating times for your daily jog with your friends be sure to cross that hour off your list. Instead, you two can opt for an early morning or pre-dinner jog, which are both cooler times of the day, in order to stay safe and keep your body hydrated.
2. Rock appropriate workout gear.
Each time, you and your crew decide to head outdoors to break a sweat, make it a point to throw on some moisture-wicking clothing from head to toe to combat those extra sweaty days. This Champion sports bra from Target is a great piece to pick up for the next time you want to have some outdoor fitness fun.
3. Keep a few must-haves on deck.
Before you two head out the door, be sure to fill up your PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT Duffel Bag with a few workout essentials such as a water bottle or sports drink to quench your thirst, your favorite SPF to block those harmful UV rays, and a super cute baseball cap to keep the sun out of your eyes.
4. Don’t forget to shake things up.
If you decide to go for a run through the park on Monday with your buddy, go for a relaxing bike ride or take a swim together on Wednesday to get your daily dose of cardio in. Switching up your workout of choice often will keep your outdoor workouts much more exciting and will expose you to the many ways you can burn calories, all while being outside!
