Swing for the Fences with This Rocking Outdoor Workout
You’ll see the swing in an entirely different light.
“Some of the best outdoor workouts come from using what’s around you,” Cooper says. “In my backyard, this means using the tree swing set up for my kids. Using this for simple exercises like rows, push-ups, split squats, and rollouts can provide a quick workout without adding equipment.”
These four exercises hit all areas of your body that you’d want to use in a full-body workout, and in a pinch, they will maintain your gains in your chest, back, legs, and arms. One of the more effective ways to incorporate this into your training, especially if you can’t get to the gym, is to set rep goals for the day rather than doing a 30-minute workout where you have to carve out time.” explains Cooper

Set a realistic rep goal for the day, for example, 50-100 reps, and mark them off every so often as you get to them throughout the day, especially if you’re spending the day outside doing yard work or playing with your kids.
You can break the sets into ten reps or aim for technical failure in each set, but the goal is to hit your target rep mark for the day.
