This week for Wellness Wednesday we show you a Lat pull over using a dumbbell. This can also be done with a barbell if you don't have any dumbbells to work with. This movement will work your lats, shoulders, triceps, and core. Focus on keeping your back flat, and avoid flaring your ribs when you extend overhead. This is a strength movement, so go slow, and keep the weight under control the whole time. Try adding 3 sets of 10-15 reps to your next workout! Check back again next week for another edition of #wellnesswednesday

As of this post, we are still seeking insurance that can cover all of the requests from the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority (PRA, owners of the property). The PRA has been assisting us in finding insurance that can fulfill their requirements and to have us reopen as soon as possible. As the park remains closed, we need you more than ever. We need you to attend meetings and events, share our Facebook page or email/tweet to community leaders to help us reopen the park. We will update you as we get further news.
