Wading in the water
Trekking through sand
Use the playground for
Picnic Table Step ups
Pull ups (Negatives)- Remember that the body is capable of more on the negative portion of an exercise. So jump up and hold your chin above the bar. Then slowly lower yourself down. This should take like 5-10 seconds. If you can’t pull yourself back up then jump back up and lower yourself down slow again.
Have fun with it! Have an amazing Summer!
