6 Strength Training Moves You Can Do with a Park Bench
No gym membership, no problem: All you need is a simple park bench to get great arms, abs, and legs -- aka the perfect bikini body for summer -- fast
Modified push-upSure, you could do push-ups on the ground, but park concrete isn't exactly the cleanest (or most comfortable) place to put bare hands. Instead, incorporate the bench with this move from Janero that'll work out your biceps and chest muscles.
Step 1: Stand a couple feet behind the bench, lean your body forward, and place your hands on the back of the bench.
Step 2: Use your core muscles to keep your body aligned from head to toe. Bend your arms to lower yourself toward the bench, until your arms reach a 90-degree angle. Push back up to your starting position. Do three sets of 15 push-ups with a 30-second rest between each set.
Challenge yourself: Work your butt muscles by lifting one leg behind you as you do each push-up (just don't arch your back). Keep your glutes engaged while you hold your leg up. Switch legs between each push-up.
