Strengthening fitness on your children’s swing set Yoga Swing—Diagonal Push Ups

Kick off some strengthening fitness on your children’s swing set with these diagonal push ups—they are less taxing as the standard push up and a whole lot more fun! A fantastic alternative for people who find regular push ups can strain their back and neck.

 
How to:

  • In front of the Yoga Swing, position your body in a traditional push up stance, with your hands flat on the ground (slightly more than shoulder-width apart) and your legs behind you
  • Step up each leg one at a time into the yoga swing, so your ankles are supported by the band of fabric
  • Bend your elbows slowly lowering yourself into a push up, then return to your starting position. We recommend completing three rounds of 10 sets

  • Slightly pull yourself up off the swing so your weight isn’t concentrated into the seat
  • With your legs stretched out straight in front of you and toes pointed, lower and lift your legs in unison, holding in your abdominals for support. We recommend completing three rounds of 10 sets
