My recommended FE-Life workout today is essentially an active rest prescription. You will need walking shoes, and a mat or clean floor area
- Target Muscles: full body
- 1-10 Difficulty Rating: 4
- Workout Time: 1.5 hours
Ensure that your muscles are warm; I recommend doing the Moji warm-up.
Go for a brisk three to five mile walk or hike over undulating terrain. Pick some sort of reference object. In example, if you walk on a street, you could use a “red car.” Make note of the number of times you see your reference object while walking. Once you have finished your outing, do a set of push-ups. The amount of times you saw your reference object is the number of push-ups you do.
To make the workout harder, switch out the push-ups for burpees. To make it easier, skip the push-ups all together.
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.
