The childhood obesity rate in America is as high as it’s ever been. This is creating more and more unhealthy kids who develop symptoms like diabetes that they carry with them their entire lives.

We need our kids to eat better and move more. But telling your kid to stop playing video games and get outside only goes so far—especially if you’re not setting a good example.

So kill two birds with one stone: Work out with your kid. You’ll both log a great workout while building habits that last a lifetime.

The key is to turn work into play. One of my favorite ways to do that is the kids vs. dads burpee ladder, shown in the video above.

Get as creative as you want. It’s always fun to make your team workout a challenge—try to find the exercises your kid kicks your butt in.

For more fitness advice you can use to radically change your body and your life, check out my Men’s Health book, Maximus Body.

It has my 12- and 26-week elite fitness programs, and 100+ workouts—most are too intense to do with kids, but you can always tweak them.
