This was awesome- truly reflective of primal fitness. Kudos! I will be stealing a few ideas for my playground workout! I especially liked all the monkey bar options, very creative.

Love it! I’ve been doing playground workouts lately (and led some friends in one last week) but this gives me some more ideas.

That looks freaking awesome! I’ve been getting kind of board with my workout. Will have to try this out! Maybe my 11 year old son will do it with me.

I’m glad this made it to MDA! I need to give credit to Cori too. She’s who’s one-upping me on every exercise!

That was awesome! I am so impressed with the strength of both of them. More motivation to keep working on my pull ups.
Nice work!

Looks like fun. I will have to find a local playground and give some of those moves a try.

Wow, this makes me realize that we have sucky playgrounds around here. I couldn’t do most of that because don’t have the equipment (they ripped out a lot of stuff and left bare minimum).

Looks like a lot of fun. To be a kid again!
