5 Park WODs to Take Your Fitness Outdoors

Indoor workouts got you down? Get some fresh air and mood-brightening vitamin D—along with your typical exercise-induced boost of endorphins—by doing these workouts at your favorite nearby park.

WOD 1

7 rounds for time

  • 20 park bench dips
  • 20 park bench box jumps
  • 20 decline push-ups (feet on park bench)

Before you get started, make sure your park bench isn’t tippable or at risk of collapsing beneath you. Then, start your timer and get after it!

WOD 2

12-minute AMRAP

  • 10 monkey bar pull-ups
  • 20 monkey bar crunches (hanging from monkey bars by your legs)
  • 30-second monkey bar L-sit (climb to the top of the monkey bars and do the L-sit while holding onto parallel bars)
  • 15 burpees

Tip: Do this workout when there aren’t a lot of kids at the playground—and give it your best effort. Expect your shoulders to burn.

WOD 3

12 rounds for time

  • 100-meter sprint
  • 15 push-ups
  • 10 V-ups

This WOD is ideal for an open, grassy space, like a soccer field. Pace out 100 meters and mark the ends. If it’s a warm day, do the workout barefoot to help strengthen those arches.

WOD 4

6 rounds for time

  • 30 jumping jacks
  • 20 single-leg bodyweight deadlifts (10 per leg)
  • 15 tuck jumps
  • 10 push-ups

Challenging both explosiveness and precision of movement, this workout can be done on any surface: grass, concrete or the dirt of a baseball diamond.

WOD 5

15-minute AMRAP

  • 15 jumping squats
  • 30 mountain climbers
  • 20 elbows-to-hands planks (up to hands, down to elbows, 20 times)

After blasting through the jumping squats and mountain climbers, settle in and catch your breath during the plank. Try to get through this one without stopping.
