I am designating the next five days, “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: 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. Designate two family members as ‘freeze monsters,’ then play freeze tag for one-half hour.
Freeze monsters should run around and try to tag people. If they tag a person, that person must remain frozen until another player un-freezes them by tagging them. The freeze monster’s goals are to try to freeze everyone. The rest of the player’s goals are to stay unfrozen. You will be surprised what an effective cardio workout the game will offer.
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.
