monkey bar gym

I came across this bodyweight training program a couple weeks ago and thought it was worth a nod.  The name is a bit misleading and doesn’t actually consist of doing all your training on monkey bars (although that would be interesting!).  Like many other bodyweight programs, it’s mostly circuit training and based on a generalist approach to fitness, rather than focusing on a specific area such as cardio, bodybuilding or strength training. 

Here’s what the owner Jon Hinds says about it: “We teach and train the four, basic functional fitness skills: Running, Jumping, Crawling and Climbing.  Mastering these movements will provide you with the stability, strength and power you need for all of your favorite activities.”

Workout videos are posted on the site and include a good mix of kettle bells, medicine balls, jump rope, bodyweight exercises and even some yoga for good measure.
