Be sure to warm up first. This is a fun playground workout! You can certainly do this workout inside as well. It is also a challenge workout. Do this workout once a week for the next 5 weeks and see if you can improve.

Part #1:
Sprint for 15 seconds (or do high knees)
Walk back to starting place (or slow march in place for 60 seconds)
Perform 10 pushups - pick a variation that is challenging for you (i.e. 1 leg, clapping, dive bombers, spidermans, etc)
Repeat for a total of 5 rounds

Part #2:
  Using the monkey bars (or a pull up bar or broomstick between chairs at home) do 5 pull ups - pick a variation that is challenging for you (i.e. assisted, inverted rows, negatives)
Then do 20 box jumps - jumping up onto a park bench or whatever you want to use at home
(if you are not a jumper, do 10 step ups on each side)
Repeat for a total of 5 Rounds for time

Part #3
Using the monkey bars again (or your home variation of a pull up bar) perform hanging knee raises, knees to elbows or toes to bar - whichever you can do 5 reps of with good form
Single Leg Hip Thrusts - 10 each leg
Repeat for a total of 5 Rounds

Each week add 2 push ups to part 1
Each week try and improve your time for part 2
Each week add 2 single leg hip thrusts to each side


RECIPE OF THE WEEK for kids and adults alike! 
This recipe is from the Paleo Mom
Chocolate Molten Cake
1.     Preheat oven to 375F.  Grease four 6oz ramekins with coconut oil.  If you wish to serve these cakes on a plate, you will need to flour as well (use coconut flour, blanched almond flour, or cocoa powder).
2.    In a 4 cup measuring cup or medium microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave on low power.  Stir until smooth and let cool.
3.    In a small bowl, beat eggs, vanilla, salt and sugar with a hand mixer until light and frothy, about five minutes (this can seem like an eternity with a hand mixer, but hang in there because it’s worth it!).
4.    Pour egg mixture over chocolate.  Sift cocoa and coconut flour over the top.  Then gently fold all the ingredients together.
5.    Pour batter into prepared ramekins (they should be filled to within ½” of the top).  Place the ramekins on a baking sheet and place in the oven (you can chill the ramekins for a few hours if you want to make them ahead of time, just make sure you bring them back to room temperature before baking).  Bake for 11-12 minutes.
6.    Remove from oven and serve immediately. Enjoy!
