What Are Outdoor Gym Parks?

Outdoor gym parks are an instinctive approach to fight the problems of obesity and physical stagnation in the country. They are often set next to playgrounds in residential areas. These parks are meant to encourage adults to be active as kids play and are designed to provide regular exercise in an intuitive and accessible way. Such an approach also answers the reasoning of non-movers on pricey gym subscriptions.

How to Use the Equipment

If you’re a beginner and want to try the road to fitness via a nearby outdoor gym park, here’s a guide to machines commonly found in one.

Bike, Cross-Trainer, and Treadmill

These machines are best for warm-up and cardio exercises.

Recommended routine: Run or work the pedal until you feel a good burn in your muscles, not painful but just enough to get you started on the workout proper.

Oblique Machines and Benches

Benches target the core via the body’s midsection, particularly the abdominal muscles, sculpting you and improving your posture. Use them for sit-ups and crunches.

The same goes for oblique machines, but instead, they target the sides of the core by rotating the feet.

Recommended routine: Begin with two sets of 15, then build up to 4 sets.

Pull-Up Bars and Lat Pull-Down Machines

These pieces of equipment strengthen the muscles on the upper back and biceps.

Using the lat pull-down machine: Pull the handles down by squeezing your shoulder blades together with your back muscles.

Using the pull-up bars: While keeping your shoulder blades back and down, pull your chest up to the bar.

Recommended routine: Begin with two sets of 10 reps, then build up to four sets of 15. If you can, you can start with 15 reps and increase to 20.
