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, and two flags or markers.
- Target Muscles: legs, abs, heart
- 1-10 Difficulty Rating: 6.5
- 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 a game of ‘Capture the Flag’ for at least thirty minutes. Split into two teams. Each team should place a flag or other marker at their team’s base. The object of the game is to run into the other team’s territory, capture their flag, then make it safely back to home base. You can tag “enemy” players in your territory, sending them to your jail. They can be sprung from jail by a member of their team running into your territory, tagging them, and then running back.
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.
