Get Fit this Summer with a Playground Workout

Take it Outside!

What better way to love your summer workout than to take it outsid
e and add some fun by going to the local playground!

That is exactly what Debbie and I did Monday afternoon. It was our last session together as our training company has come to a close here in E'town as new business ventures open- so my time training Debbie was quite meaningful.

She loves the variety of the short burst resistance training workouts I design for her - and after 2 years of working together, she has just about seen it all.....or so she thought! I love surprising her with new techniques and new ways to make her usual workouts feel twice as challenging.

So Monday I decided to show her - that there was still More she could experience.

What follows is her Playground Workout. She plans on incorporating this into her workout schedule once a week when the weather is nice enough to allow it.

Playground Workout

Perform each super set 3-4 times in a row with little to no rest before moving on to the next super set. Ex: A1 A2, A1 A2, A1 A2 – rest B1 B2, B1 B2, B1 B2- rest….etc.

A1: Box Jumps - 10 to 12

A2: Assisted Pull Ups -8 to 10

B1: One Leg Squat -6 to 8 each leg

B2: Assisted Push Ups - 12 to 15

C1: Hanging Knee Raise - 8 to 10

C2: Bear Crawl: Crawl for designated distance

Your short burst, playground workout should take about 10-15 minutes. This gives your body the zest it needs to burn more fat and calories for the next 24-48 hours.

Be sure you wear sunscreen and
bring plenty of water!

Thank you Debbie
I have truly enjoy working with you. Your dedication and sparkling attitude is one of the many reasons why I looked forward to our sessions together. I am proud of all you have accomplished and all you will continue to achieve!
