Enhanced Burpees

Wednesday, May 28th, 2008

This video shows a variation of burpees that allows you to workout with weights.  This works on your stability, strength and is a bit aerobic at the same time.  Workouts like this do not take hours or really require a gym.  You can knock these out at home or almost anywhere and get a full […]

Parkour Vs. Tricking

Monday, May 26th, 2008

Where I am from, there is no parkour.  There is however tricking and it does not relate to parkout.  There might be some good workouts in tricking but it generally involves a chick and cash.  Anyhow, the word tricking is probably better then parkour for the sport, but with such a negative connotation I will […]

100 Burpee Pullups

Friday, May 23rd, 2008

Gotta love it.  100 Burpee Pullups is something I would love to be able to do, especially in under 20 minutes.  My plan is to get into the shape to be able to do things like this.  I feel I am getting there, even if it is slowly…

RossTraining

Thursday, May 22nd, 2008

Minimal equipment, H for hardcore.  Ross is pretty sick with the workouts he does.  The first video I saw with him, was a triple clap pushup (I might blog about soon).  This video has him rope climbing with a vest, and basically just killing every form of exercise we try to perfect.  He adds three […]

First, check the volume on the video, as the noises are a bit rough, but they are what make the video interesting.  This video feature interesting techniques and exercises.  Beyond the humor of it, this is good stuff.  Much of it is popular now, from the kettle bell movements, to the sledge hammer and on.  […]

Decent Workout

Sunday, May 18th, 2008

Workouts like this are fun.  They measure where you are in your fitness and training.  They also make you sweat, which is something good that lets you know you are working out… Personally, I am slowly creeping up with the pushups and it feels good to do 30 with 20#’s on the back.  I am […]

Burpee Back Flips

Wednesday, May 14th, 2008

The squat/jump just is not enough.  You need to busting the back flip on the up on your burpees.  Here is the motivation.   I am in a hotel this week and burpees are the only thing keeping me sane.  Pushups are not giving enough.  I am having to get the whole body moving and […]

Double Dose

Monday, May 12th, 2008

This is a double dose post.  I ran across these two videos and really neither was hood enough, though both were in the right location and a bit motivational.  These two videos take place at free locations where excuses do not exist.  So get some. I just got done doing 21 burpees after 70 pushps […]

GymJones workout

Friday, May 9th, 2008

Enough said.  GymJones always pushes the limits.  Remember that a good way to know if you workout is working, sweat. Got 100 in today. A variation with knuckles… Nothing great though, but still going.

Street/Playground

Wednesday, May 7th, 2008

There is no excuse not to get the dips on.  So go ahead and find a playground or a chair or whatever.  These dips give a killer workout on them arms.  The abs are also getting a bit of a workout as well… Busted out 120 pushups thus far.  4 sets of 30.  Did some […]
