No Gym? No Problem! The Ultimate Full Body Park Workout

Sometimes your day gets away from you and you run out of time to make it to your perfectly planned gym class. Then what? Throw in the towel and skip the workout? Not a chance! Especially if you have a hill you can run up because that is all you need to do this The Ultimate Full Body Park Workout.

No Gym? No Problem! The Ultimate Full Body Park Workout

Anywhere fitness: No more excuses!

It’s sooo easy to skip your workout after a long day, but I promise you that if you take just 21 minutes to workout you will feel better. Mentally and physically. You’ll sleep better and you’ll have more energy. Plus, a hard workout in the early evening can really help curb an evening appetite and keep you from snacking your way through the rest of the night. That’s why I have it as the 4th Universal Diet Truth of my Clean & Colorful Solution.

This is a pyramid style workout.

Back to the workout. Here’s exactly how to do it. We call this a pyramid workout because  it gets harder before it gets easier. But that’s the fun part! Here’s how it works:

  • You start with a simple warm up, like an easy jog to your park with the perfect hill.
  • Then you sprit up the hill. This one took about 30 seconds, but anything will do and walk back down the hill for active recovery.
  • Do 5 push-ups, 5 squats, 5 spider planks. Have a sip of water if that sounds good and get ready for your next sprint.
  • Sprint up the hill and when you come back down, do 10 push-ups, 10 squats, 10 spider planks.
  • Sprint, walk down for recovery, then do 15 push-ups, 15 squats, 15 spider planks.
  • Sprint, walk down for recovery, then do 20 push-ups, 20 squats, 20 spider planks.
  • Sprint, walk down for recovery, then do 20 push-ups, 20 squats, 20 spider planks.
  • Sprint, walk down for recovery, then do 15 push-ups, 15 squats, 15 spider planks.
  • Sprint, walk down for recovery, then do 10 push-ups, 10 squats, 10 spider planks.
  • Sprint, walk down for recovery, then do 5 push-ups, 5 squats, 5 spider planks.
  • Muster up the strength for one final sprint up the hill — crush the end and finish strong!
  • Cool down with an easy walk home and end with some simple stretches.

At the end of this workout, you’ll have done 9 “barf-worthy” sprints, 100 push-ups, 100 squats and 100 spider planks. Ooooch! It’s hard. The full pyramid will take longer than 21-minutes and will vary depending on your fitness level. It took us about 35 minutes. It was not easy, but we did make it fun. When you start coming down the pyramid, it starts to go so fast it’s motivating!

You don’t even have to finish the whole pyramid, you just have to start! But I have a feeling that once you start, you’ll have the itch to “finish” — ha ha!

The Ultimate Full Body Park Workout Testimonial

I did not suffer this one alone. I dragged my buddy Misti along and forced her to stick it out with me. We pushed each other up that hill 9 times and somehow neither one if us threw up. Here’s what she had to say:

This was challenging, but extremely rewarding (which is easy to say now that we’re done). Even though it was hard, it left me with more energy and I’m so glad we did it.

Next time you think you’re out of time to workout…

Realize that you’re not. You can always squeeze in a workout that will be challenging and rewarding. It will require zero equipment and little time. You just need to muster up the strength to lace up and get out there. Trust me, you will be SO glad you did!

    1. OMG you will love it Myra! It’s a killer. I was sore for like 3 days! I’m going back to the same hill a week later for a re-do! Going to see if we can do it faster than 36 minutes this time. If you try it, let me know how it goes!

  1. “I was in a bad shape. After I lost my job I was under too much stress. I was home a lot and started to eat everything on sight. Any time I felt frustrated, I picked up a can of soda or coffee along with some sugary snack. My husband was concerned. He purchased a weight loss book and convinced me to enroll in a gym.
    I tried whatever was suggested in the book but found no motivation to go to the gym.
    I would go there may be occasionally.
    Needless to say, I was totally fed up. While searching for a job in the internet, I decided to check into weight loss. I came across Dr. Anam’s website. Decided to check him out.
    After the screening session, I decided to try hypnosis. I am glad I did. So far I lost 20 pounds in 4 months. I transitioned into a more balanced lifestyle. I am really glad that I Found Dr.Anam. He is very knowledgeable and a wonderful person to work with.”

I would love to hear from you...
