I've written before about Stephen Jepson and his Never Leave the Playground program.  Now he has added brachiation to his collection of fitness "toys."  Note his interesting form, without the usual swinging action of the body.

Those who have visited our house will understand why I picked up on that.  Here's grandson Joseph exploring our indoor brachiation ladder.

And here he is with sister Vivienne almost three years later on the outdoor version.  (Forgive the videography; the camera was new and I was clueless.)

Note that Jepson's solution for an easier version while building up strength is very similar to ours, though his also works when the weather's too cold for swimming.  I'll have to remember that!
