Six 'Manly' Outdoor Activities If You're Not Into Sports

There seems to be some unwritten rule when it comes to men and sports. It's as if we're supposed to be genetically predisposed to an interest in athletics, and while that holds true for most of us, that's not the case for men everywhere. In fact, while it's entirely possible to enjoying watching a sporting event, you yourself may not enjoy participating, and you know what? That's fine!

With Spring arriving yesterday, the pressure to get outside is real, Fellas. It's no longer socially acceptable to sit indoors and binge watch Netflix. Question is, what are you supposed to do when all of your guy friends want to toss around the old pigskin and you'd rather do just about anything but?

We have some suggestions that are still considered 'manly' enough that necessarily need to take place on court, field, or diamond.

  1. Throw a BBQ (or beerbeque). Invite a bunch of friends over, throw some burgers, steaks, and ribs on the grill and call it a day. Add a couple of ice cold beers into the mix, maybe some margaritas for the ladies, and you have yourself a manly outdoor day with very little physical activity and a ton of fun.

  2. If you happen to have a dog, grab a toy or bone and bring them to the dog park. They call them a "man's best friend" for a reason, right? In the event you don't have a dog, well, you should most likely reconsider that ASAP. But really, no dog, no problem. Go ahead and take a stroll all on your own. Maybe even jog if you're feeling super into it.

  3. What's more 'manly' than building something? Surely, not hitting a ball with a bat, amirite? Looking to add some decor to your backyard? Why not try your luck at a birdhouse or a small shed if you're super ambitious. Even if you're feeling lazy, setting up a hammock doesn't take all that much effort and it'll look pretty boss when it's all said and done.

  4. I know it's pretty commonplace for people to associate gardening with old women, but that's a bunch of bull. Gardening is no easy feat. You're covered in sweat, and dirt, and likely some manure on top of it all. I'm not suggesting you plant a rose bush, but maybe some herbs, or hot peppers for the aforementioned BBQ in line item 1.

  5. Just saying, having sex outdoors is just as fun as it sounds. Don't really need to add further explanation. Good thing we've already offered up some tips on how to pull that off without getting busted.

  6. Yes, going on a hike is a lot of physical exertion, but it's NOT a sport and you can make it as relaxed as you want it to be. Grab a few beers, pack a lunch, and hit the trail. If you know a good spot, bring a blanket and post up for the day. Enjoy the fresh air with no referee involvement.
