You’re Never Too Old For The Playground! A Triathlon Strength Training Park Workout

Hey guys! Can you believe August is here already?! The summer is flying by! If you’re as busy as we are hanging out by the pool training for a triathlon, marathon, or any other race,  you might find it challenging to find time to get your workouts in. I mean, who are we kidding, grilling burgers and sipping drinks by the pool sounds a whole lot better than lifting weights at the gym, right?

Well, we have a solution!

Go to the park! 

Davey and I came up with this quick and fun triathlon workout you can do using playground equipment. And if you’re already brining your kids to the park, why not use the opportunity to get in a triathlon strength training workout! With any luck, the sprinklers might even be on!

Don’t forget to leave a comment and let us know what you think!

And after your workout, blend up a delicious, refreshing and low cal Watermelon Breeze!

We’d love to hear from you! What creative ways have you come up with to get your workouts in?

What’s your favorite summer pastime? We love hanging out by the pool!

    Here in Southern Arizona where it’s 110 degrees right now, summer is the only time we DON’T hang out at the park! I look forward to doing this in the fall though 🙂

      Hahaha! I hear ya! We made that workout when we lived in California and now that we’re living in hot humid Nashville, we’ll probably wait till the fall too 🙂 but the watermelon breeze would be perfect for those hot Arizona days!

    Great stuff! Might I recommend the Bulgarian Split Squats with the rear leg on a swing for an extra challenge? Park benches are good for box jumps too!

      WOAH! That’s genius! We’ll definitely add that one to our circuit!
