6 Playground Moves That Make Exercise Fun Again
Partner up for this core-challenging move.
The move: Seesaw Pushup Hold
How to do it: Partner A: Choose the side of the seesaw that’s in the down position and face away from it. Assume a pushup position with your hands on the ground and your toes on the seat so your body extends in a straight line from the seesaw. Use your core muscles to keep your body straight.
Partner B: Stand beside the other end of the seesaw and use your hands to slowly push down on the seat so partner A's feet rise off the ground. Begin with a small downward movement, and increase the range of motion based on your partner’s comfort level. (The greater the range of motion, the harder it will be for your partner to stabilize her spine, and the greater the challenge.) Then allow your side of the seesaw to rise back up to the starting position. Repeat slowly for 60 seconds and then switch roles.
