PARK BENCH WORKOUT

So, summer is officially here and – thanks to the glorious sunshine we’ve recently been blessed with – I’ve been embracing the sweat (like, did I just shower or is that sweat; I can’t tell?!) and enjoying a bit of fresh air during my daily 15-min HIIT workouts. However no-equipment workouts can grow a little tedious after a while and without a gym (*who wants to be surrounded by a swarm of sweaty people as well as drowning in your own puddle of sweat?) you can be left a little uninspired and stuck-in-a-rut. *Just keeping it real people on the sweat-front. Therefore, lately I seem to have adopted the humble, understated garden bench as my all-in-one gym machine. Because who wants to sit when you could be squat-jumping?

Since playing around with different exercises is something I enjoy, I decided to put together a few of my favourites (and by ‘favourites’ I mean serious killers) for you to have a go at. You choose whether to do them at the park or in the comfort of your own garden, just get sweating.
