Turn the Park into a Gym

Turn the Park into a Gym

Who wants to be stuck inside at a health club on a sunny day? No worries: these moves require nothing but a bench.

Lunge:

Stand in front of the bench. Place the top of your right sneaker on the seat. Bend left knee to almost 90 degrees; knee should not go past toes. Straighten leg. Do 15 reps, and then switch legs.

Press:

Place hands on the back of the bench, shoulder-width apart. Step back until body is in a straight line from head to toe. Bend arms and lower chest, keeping elbows as close to torso as possible. Do 10 reps, then move hands closer together and repeat.

Crunch:

Sit on the edge of the bench. Place hands on the seat on either side of you and engage abs to left feet slightly off the ground, knees and ankles forming a 90-degree angle. While exhaling, pull knees toward chest until lower legs are parallel to the ground. Lower down. Do 15 reps.
