It’s finally getting cool and deer season is in full swing.
Check out this video we recently did for Bass Pro Shops One Source about a few items that we made sure to pick up before we headed out chasing whitetails.
Less than 7 minutes for a total body pump!
Reverse Lung, Push-up, Mountain Climbers
40 seconds of work with 5 seconds of rest.
This quick training session takes less than 7 minutes and will get your heart and muscles pumping. Start with reverse lunges to get the lower body and glutes working, then drop down and rep out push-ups varying your hand placement as needed to get the arms and chest pumped, then finish off with mountain climbers to really crank up your heart rate while strengthening your pillar.
Today’s THOR Day Challenge is in honor of my dad’s birthday.
He is the man that has taught me not only to hunt but to take care of myself with exercise. My dad has set a great example for me and many more by the way he has lived his life.
Today will be an endurance test
When we enter the woods we do not need to be able to run a marathon but being able to cover a short distance quickly could make a huge difference.
1 MILE as quickly as possible.
No need to set any land speed records. We are only competing against ourselves. Walk, run, jog, crawl, or any combination to cover 1 mile. No need to carry your pack. Just get the mile in. Time yourself and record it. Then test yourself again in a week. This is how you know if you are getting better. Better Everyday!!
THOR Day Challenge 9-1-16
Today’s challenge consist of 3 exercises.
We begin with Mountain Climbers to get the heart ticking, then Single Arm Rows to improve our shoulder and back strength to prep for archery season, and finish with Lateral Lunge to ensure our legs are ready to hike up and down the hills and hollers.
Mountain Climbers = 10-30 seconds (modify to your current level)
Single Arm Rows = 10 reps each arm (adjust weight as needed making sure to keep the shoulder back and tight to avoid a pointy shoulder)
Lateral Lunge = 10 to each side (go as low as you can depending on your mobility)
Get after it and be ready for archery season!
Thor Day Challenge
Minute Fit Tip
Just 5 minutes. Iit only takes a small amount of time and commitment to improve our health.
Just commit to 5 minutes a day.
Get out of bed and take a 5-minute walk. Take a 5-minute walk during lunch or get a quick 5-minute walk as soon as you get home from work.
If after 5 minutes you don’t want to do anymore, then stop and get on with your day.
But as we learned in grade school ‘an object in motion stays in motion’. So if we just get going, it is easier to keep going. As we move more we get healthier and then we move more which in turn makes us healthier. When we take action we, in turn, take more action.
Just commit to 5 minutes a day. Stick to a 5 minutes commitment and do more when you feel like it. Soon you will be moving more and living a better and healthier life!
