Creating an outdoor gym is as easy as finding some things to jump over and hang from—in your backyard or a city park. This map includes 10 exercises, but you can pick and choose depending on your goals. Want more lower-body power? Skip the push-ups and pull-ups. Working the whole package? Keep them, and add extra sit-ups.
If you do all 10 stations, cycle through twice instead of three times. You’ll be working out for a longer duration anyway.
1. side-to-side leaps 2. quick feet: Set up six rocks so that a generous leap is required to get from one to the next. Start at one end and travel as fast as you can safely, leaping from rock to rock. Turn around and leap back. 3. lateral hop: Line up six small rocks about 18 inches apart. Stand so that you’re lined up with—not facing—them. Keeping your abs tight, jump as high as you can over the first rock, and land between it and the second one. Jump to the end and go back. 4. push-ups: Prop your feet up on a rock and do traditional pushups. You’ll work your core and your upper body. 5. two-foot jumps: Standing in front of a picnic table in an aggressive stance—hands in front, abs tight, gaze forward. Explode with both feet onto the top. Step down and repeat. 6. weighted stair jumps 7. glute power jumps 8. tree-branch pull-ups 9. one-leg stump jumps 10. Karno sit-ups
