Strength vs. Cardio — Here's How You Should Structure Your Workout

Get Motivated: Monkey Bar Moves

Some days, a traditional gym workout can be too boring to bear. You need to break up your routine; moving away from the machines and mirrors can be a great remedy when you feel a case of gym ennui about to strike. If you are looking for new ways to work out watch this video — a promo for the Monkey Bar gym in Madison, WI. Their motto is movement over muscle. Check out these moves.

Just watching that makes me want to do some burpees or find a rope to climb (or at least try to climb).

If you don't live in Madison, there are Monkey Bar affiliate gyms scattered throughout the US – from New Jersey, to Indy, to Scottsdale.

So don't just sit there, go climb something!

My brother is taking their personal trainer course; I can't wait to have him teach me some moves on the playground near our house! :) Also: I want those giant tractor tires.

I wish I could go here! It makes me long for my days as a gymnast. Such a good workout.

I used to live in Madison and the Monkey Bar gym is AWESOME!! It's like a playground for adults, but it costs more. I sometimes go to the park with my friends' kids and play on the monkey bars. The kids think it's really cool that I play with them on the equipment, lol.
