Playground Rings

The other day I was watching some indoor gym ninja videos of people working obstacles similar to the Ring Toss and I thought, “why couldn’t you do that at the park?” I have a couple gymnastics rings so I headed to the park in search of things to do with rings at the playground…

So here’s day 1:

And Day 2:

Playground Lava 2

Remember the game you used to play as a kid? The floor was lava and all you had to was not touch it. I love that concept and the playground offers a great environment. Here’s another place with great don’t touch the ground potential…

Playground Prop

So many playgrounds… so many angles and spots to prop your body between and challenge that core, grip, shoulders… heck, the whole body!

Playground Sand

People have been using the beach for workouts for a long time so why not take advantage of the sand that’s at so many of our local playgrounds?

Playground Tube

These aren’t just for hiding places anymore. A trip to the playground allowed me to discover a workout based around a little tube at the park…

Playground Swings

A few years ago a trip to the park to swing on the swings started it all. Now I’m a full fledged playground fitness fanatic. Today we celebrate that moment with a workout focused on and around the swings. Turns out there’s quite a lot you can do with some swings…

Playground Dumbbell 3

The first two installments were such a good workout it didn’t take long to get back out there for the third time. I was trying to get most of my ideas out there so this one is a little longer than the first two but I covered most of the exercises I was thinking of. Even though I’m sure they’ll be more down the road this will be the last (documented) dumbbell playground workout for a while.
