Sunday Funday - Playground Workout!



What is Sunday Funday you ask? Well, it's the day of the week I will share some new ideas for workouts. Most of you have your RUNday on Sunday. So after your long run, kick back with some carbs and check out the Sunday Funday workout you can use later in the week!

Today's Sunday Funday Workout is a playground workout! Did you know you can get an awesome workout in by using equipment at your neighborhood playground?


Here are some exercises you can try!



- Step ups/Step ups with lunge
- Inverted and decline push ups
- Tricep dips
- Inverted row w/ bar
- Pull ups/Pull up practice
-Monkey bar/Ninja warrior training
- Inverted row w/ swings


Enjoy!
Have you ever done a workout on a playground?

    2. Hah! ^ That's too funny!

      You know, I don't even know where any parks with playgrounds are near my house! Now I'm wondering if I just don't notice them because I don't have kids, or if there really aren't any!
