I am constantly amazed at how much kids love to hang from things. They love to hang from rings, from bars, from ropes...from anything they can get their hand on! They have an innate sense of wanting to climb, swing and hang. In a structured environment, we can hone a child's natural instinct and teach them gymnastic skills. This includes rope climbs, pull ups, flips on the parallel bars and more. It might seem like play, but they are actually developing coordination, balance and strength.
Jack hangs from the bar.
3 rounds for time (with PVC):
5 Shoulder Presses
10 Push Presses
15 Sit Ups
Build & Move a Fort
As a kid I spent countless hours hanging and swinging from the T poles of the clothesline in my backyard. I would pretend to be an olympic gymnast!
