7.50 Workout series Day 4 outdoor exercising

Research shows that exercisers burn 10 percent more calories when you walk or run outdoors than you do when you workout inside on a treadmill at the same speed. “When you’re caught up in your environment, you’re less focused on how tired you are or how much your muscles ache.
