Winter is coming. I know, I know, I’m sorry. It’s a cliché pop culture reference you’re probably sick of hearing. But the reality is; Winter isn’t coming, it’s already here! But that doesn't mean you don't have to workout. In fact, here's a 20 minute outdoor workout to help you stay on track.
If you've set yourself a New Year’s Resolution related to health and fitness, then right now there’s a good chance you’re sat there hoping January doesn't come around too soon because secretly you're really not ready to make the changes you’ve planned.

A depressed mood or feelings of depression can stem from a sense of being out of control. Whether you feel a loss of control in your personal life, at work, with your children, financially or physically, over time, sadness can linger if you are having challenges working through the emotions. One way to feel empowered and begin to recover your feelings of control, at least over yourself, is through strength training. You do not have to become a bodybuilder to boost your mood and overcome your depression, although that can be a goal. Instead, weekly strength-training exercises can do wonders to help your body and your mind recover from overwhelming feelings of sadness.
Looking to develop a body that’s ideal for martial arts? Then you’re going to want a mix of strength building exercises and cardio, the more varied and the more explosive, the better. The exercises we talk about in this article are a great place to start, but don’t be fooled—they’re only the beginning of a proper martial arts conditioning regimen.
Running 26.2 miles is a admirable goal. Wanting to run a marathon faster than your previous time, is another wonderful goal. Speed for distance running may not be your favorite way to train, but it is effective. Speed runs work for shorter distances too, so if your goal is a half-marathon, you can still enjoy the benefits of these speed runs- on or off a track.
Always check with your physician before using advanced training techniques and be sure to wear supportive shoes that are in good condition.
