Get Hot and Fit: Rodeo Grounds Full Body Workout

Since we reside within the European Union, the whole concept of Rodeo grounds for the purpose of working out seems completely awesome yet impossible. Okay, so we could head to Spain, but no working out would be allowed – its a tourist site!

This is why we were so fascinated by this article, and decided to bring it up here!

So why is the Rodeo so special? Because it’s all there. No gym necessary, no equipment.

The steps make for a perfect obstacle.

The track around the rodeo arena is generally smooth and an easy jog

And sometimes you’ll be lucky enough to find some trails only yards away for a quick trail lap or short bike ride.

Here are two sweaty workouts for you to try! You should repeat each routine 2 to 4 times. Short on time? Aim to get 30 minutes in!

Workout #1

  • One lap around rodeo grounds, about half a mile
  • 50 step jumps on stairs – leap from the bottom of the stands to the first step and then either back down or continuing up.
  • 50 triceps dips
  • Slow and continuous lunge up to top of stairs, pulse for 10 counts – after reaching the top, “pulse” for 10 counts by doing 10 more lunges without actually taking any more steps.
  • 25 decline push-up
  • 50 one-legged squats on each side
  • Static squat, one minute – on a step or on the flat ground, pull into a squatting position, sticking the butt out at as far as you can for 60 seconds.
  • 50 crunches
  • Slow lunge up to the top with an oblique twist at each alternate step
  • 100 mountain climbers – from the base of the steps, hunch over and extend your arms to the front of the first step so your body is arched. Then, without moving your hands, leap and put one foot forward and the other back. Leap again and switch them. Two down, 98 to go.
  • Take a five-minute trail run lap around trails above rodeo stairs.

Workout #2

  • One lap around rodeo grounds

  • Sprint up to top of the stairs and run down in the middle twice
  • Lunge to top of steps, pulse for 10 at top, run down in middle
  • 100 bunny hop side to side
  • 50 crunches
  • Run a five-minute trail lap
