The Bikini Body Workout Routine You Can Do Anywhere

Those first few warm mornings of the season, are always a welcome sign that summer is just around the corner and with it, all of the fun in the sun. Too often however, it’s also about the time of year that may of us realise we weren’t perhaps as vigilant with our fitness regime as we thought we would be and as a result the panic starts to set in that it’s bikini time all over again!

The good news is, there’s no need to stress – in fact there’s never been a better time to kick start your routine than right now and what better way to do it, than training outdoors! Owner of Built by Dylan, Dylan Rivier shares how to choose where to train when choosing a outdoors location and the ultimate routine you can follow.

We’re lucky enough in Australia (Sydney particularly), to have some of the most amazing outdoor training venues in the world. Think Bondi Beach, Botanic Gardens, Rushcutters Bay, The Bay Run – the list goes on.

As the days get longer and warmer, why not start your day with some outdoor morning exercise? Not only will it set you up for a great day, you’ll start to reap the benefits of regular exercise that translates into real, tangible results.

There’s no right or wrong way to train outside, but I like to incorporate elements on strength and cardio into my sessions, to create a HIIT circuit that uses very little equipment. Because we’re working out outside, having something that’s small enough to carry or throw in the car is key to success here – if your workout involves too many moving pieces the chances of you hitting snooze and rolling over increase exponentially!

I like to use items like simple sand bag – something like this will provide all the resistance you’re going to need.

When choosing somewhere to train outside, think about these things:

1. Convenience (can you walk/jog, do you have to drive etc)
2. How much equipment do you need?
3. Will you train alone or with a friend/s?
4. Will there be sufficient light
5. Am I going to annoy nearby neighbours with my noise?

Some of these things might seem silly but believe me, they can all play a significant part in making or breaking your session.

Here’s a workout you can do anywhere outside.

1. 15 x Squat Press (thrusters)
