Are you prepared for fall season? Sure, you made it through summer without neglecting your exercise routine, but how are you doing now that the weather is colder outside? If you are like most people, you get to the door and feel the cold brisk air and turn around and go back inside. If this is a common occurrence with you, you may need a back-up plan on those days when outdoor exercise is not possible. Consider how these exercises may help you in your quest to remain fit during the autumn.
Try Out These Outdoor Exercises

Your feet should be shoulder-width apart, and the knees should be slightly bent. The upper body should descend towards the floor until it is perpendicular with the lower body. Your straight arms should be raised to the side until it forms a “T.” The dumbbells should be lowered to the original position.

The exercise should be repeated until all of the repetitions are complete.
Swiss Ball Dumbbell Chest Press:If you need to tone the abdominals, chest, triceps, hips and shoulders, try the Swiss Ball Dumbbell Chest Press. Start the exercise with dumbbells in your hand. Raise the hips towards the sky until the body from the shoulders to knees is in a straight line. The lower part of the legs should be perpendicular to the body.
