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 Basics

Even though I tend to go a little overboard with what you can do at the playground sometimes I get back to basics. Here are my favorite 10 moves that are simple, easy to do at almost any playground and give you a great workout…

1- Squat

2- Incline Pushup

3- Stepup

4- Incline Body Row

5- Single Leg Squat

6- Dip

7- Pullup

8- Elevated Split Squat

9- Decline Pushup

10- Decline Body Row

Add a little run and/or sprint and that is all you need for a great workout.
