THOR Day Challenge 9-15-16

RUN!

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

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 – 8-18-16

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!

Thor Day Challenge 8/4/16

Today’s challenge involves a primal movement of life – picking things up and carrying them.

So for today’s challenge all we need is an object to pick up and carry around. It can be a medicine ball, sandbag, log, use your hunting pack, or use your kids (if they don’t squirm too much.

Begin by picking up your chosen object off the ground and throw it on your shoulder. Walk 50 yards down and back (for extra challenge walk up and down a hill) then when you return to starting position, place object on the ground and complete 10 push ups. Now pick it up again and put it on your left shoulder and walk 50 yards down and back. Throw it down and perform 20 jumping jacks. Complete 5 rounds with proper form as quickly as possible

DO NOT SACRIFICE FORM FOR SPEED!!

Share with your hunting buddies to compete with them. Post your time, comments, and questions below.

#GetAction and become a #HealthyHunter!!
