This week is “family activity week.” This in mind, for my recommended FE-Life workout today you will need a bunch of family members dressed for outdoor play.
- Target Muscles: legs, abs, heart
- 1-10 Difficulty Rating: 4.5
- Workout Time: 30 minutes
Head to a park or large yard. As a group, make sure that your muscles are warm; I recommend doing the Moji warm-up.
Play ‘Red Light, Green Light’ for at least thirty minutes. Designate one person as the traffic light and have them stand across the yard or park from everyone else. When the traffic light faces the group he or she says, “red light,” and everyone must freeze. The traffic light then turns his or her back and says, “green light” while the group tries to get as close to the traffic light as possible. The traffic light turns around quickly, again saying, “red light,” and if anyone is spotted moving, they have to go back to the starting place. The first person to tag the traffic light wins and gets to be the next traffic light.
Go for a brisk walk or a casual jog of at least two-miles a few hours before or after the workout.
I post a new workout each day of the week. Clearly, “rest days” are prudent in anyone’s workout schedule. My advice is to select four or five of the workouts I recommend in a week, and do them over four or five days—one workout per day; rest on the other days. I always list the target muscles each routine calls upon. It would be wise to choose workouts that address the entire body over a given week.
