Park cross training exercises to increase endurance

Yet another Sunny Sunday spent in a park training with some seriously cool ladies.  When the weather is still so warm and leaves are golden it’s just a pity to stay in and not enjoy the fresh fall air.

Stretching under the sun

Important to do stretching before – to warm up those muscles and after to release the tension and be able to recover the muscle soreness faster.
