Street Run with Playground Workouts

Today’s 3 mile run included 2 stops at 2 different Playgrounds along my route for a mini body weight circuit; I had no plan in mind, just winged it today. This workout took about 45min to complete, and was pretty fun!

My warm up begins at the house with a total body roll out with a foam roller for no more than 5 minutes followed by a brisk walk for about a quarter of a mile to the start of my 3 mile run.

Monkey Bar Swings!
Low Hang Leg Raises were much harder than I thought! I barely got 10! I must do more of this!
Inverted Rows
More Monkey Bar Swings!
Hanging Knee Tuck to a Leg Raise, I really liked these.
Broad Jumps….because they suck but are so good for you!
Tricep Extensions

Once I’ve reached the end of my loop, I’ll cool down with a quarter mile walk back home then static stretch for 5 to 10 minutes.

I LOVE this style of training and will post more with different exercises, so stay tuned for more workout ideas next week!

Have a great day!
