Have fun and burn fat at the playground – all you need is a Swing!
One of my favorite places to workout is…Outside – especially at a playground.
A fresh setting gives me ideas for unique ways to do my fat burning Fit Yummy Mummy workouts.
This week I experimented with just using a Swing to get a total body, metabolism boosting workout in while the boys played.
Swing Fat Loss Circuit
1. Single Leg Squats
8-10 reps each leg
Great Butt Booster!
Keep your weight in your heel, come nice and low and squeeze your butt to push back up. Use your upper body to pull as needed for assistance.
2. Inverted Row
Awesome Back and Core Move!
Adjust angle of swing to meet your strength levels- the lower you are, the more challenging the move.
Keep your body in a straight plank, core is tight as you pull your chest up to the swing.
3. Leg Curls
Work your Backside!
With the added height of the swing, you will really feel this in your hamstrings and glutes. Keep your hips elevated as you push heels into swing to push out and pull in.
4. Push Ups
The Best Arm and Core Sculpting Exercise!
Lead with your chest, core is tight and body is in a solid plank – keep elbows back about 45 degrees.
Not ready for a push up? Just HOLD and you will feel it!
5. Body Saw
5-8 reps rocking forward and back
Wow will this EVER Rock your Core!
Similar to a Roll Out – start in a plank position be sure your body remains in a solid plank. Begin to saw by driving your body back by pushing off your forearms then pull forward and repeat. Slow and controlled is the name of the game. Also great for shoulder mobility.
Repeat 3-4 times
Finished in a mere 15 minutes!
Try it out the next time you head to the park and let me know what you think
