Between the skyscrapers and the scaffolding, New York City also happens to have a lot of great public parks.
Not only does East River Park have pull-up and dip bars, it also has a quarter mile running track, tennis courts and more!
East River Park runs along the FDR parkway from Houston St. to E. 10th street in Manhattan’s Lower East Side.
I recently met up with my friends Rick Seedman and Mark Leitz of the Bar-barians for a workout at East River Park – and what a workout it was! We did the usual push-ups, pull-ups and dips, as well as muscle-ups, L-sits, levers and more. Having great training partners keeps me motivated to continue pushing my boundaries.
