Far Out Fitness
COVID-19 is still spreading, so social distancing is still important. But what does that mean for a workout? "The current recommendation from the [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] is not to wear a mask while exercising. They may reduce the ability to breathe comfortably, and if they become wet while sweating, it creates more of a hazard," fitness instructor Elizabeth Radinovic says. "The important thing to remember when working out is maintaining appropriate distance to avoid contact with respiratory droplets." One thing that helps maintain social distance — especially in good weather — is to take workouts outdoors. It avoids closed spaces where those droplets can linger, and burns more calories due to the terrain and elements. Experts say people who exercise outside have less tension, depression, and fatigue, and are more likely to exercise frequently and for longer periods. This list of outdoor workouts will get you feeling and looking your best despite coronavirus.
