^^ check out that crazy hair!! Who doesn’t put their hair in a pony when they run?! 🙂

I’ve been trying to get outside as much as I can lately for an outdoor workout. It has been raining the past few days, but we’ve been having plenty of sunshine in between. San Francisco is such a beautiful city with so many opportunities to be active outdoors- I just love it! Today I wanted to share an outdoor plyos workout with you all. I’ve been trying to incorporate plyos and a longer cardio session at least once a week, to give my body a break from heavy weights. I also keep telling myself that I would like to do more yoga, but getting to a class, thats another story!

Plyos aka plyometrics is also known as jump training. It’s when muscles exert maximum force in short intervals of time, with the goal of increasing power (speed-strength).

Time to get outside and sweat!
