When being American stinks..... We can screw up the rest of the world with ease, but we can't read your measurements.  :'(

I've been working out in my buildings 'gym' which is mostly treadmills and light free-weights with a few choice machines. So i'm back to a more intelligent BW routine with some light weights for shoulder and overhead work and maxing the plates of bicep curls/leg press/pull down etc..

checking into cross-fit here and there and hoping to get motivated back into joining another gym for heavy lifting.

here was an interesting workout

3 Rounds:
12 Back Squats @ BW
Broad jump @ 50 lb Dumbbells (100 total), 10m

rest 2 minutes between rounds. Use as few jumps as possible to cover 10m

did it in 8:14..so taking account the rests I did 36 BW squats and these broad jumps (which were just brutal) in 4:14

heres another

The Hunt
20 min AMRAP: [as many rounds]
1 Person works while the other performs 20 Wall Balls and holds a plank for the remainder of the time
40 yd Bear Crawl (Stalking)
250M Run (Chasing)
20 Sledgehammers (Killing)
50 lb Sandbag Broad Jump (Carrying kill back to village)

we did 6+ rounds. (3 each)

Shooting my bow at a target from different postures and distances. Climbing trees for plumbs, which is quite skeletal-muscle-tiring when hanging for extended periods in awkward positions to reach the ripe ones. Swimming up, down and across a pretty wide river. Kayaking around the same river, doing rolls and stuff. Played English vs Indian football match by the river, English won... Ah yeah and I walk about a mile with my kayak on my shoulder to get to and from the river as well.

Martial arts.
Stick rubbing.
Power lifting, maximum weight with 2-3 reps, 2-3 sets. (bench, and press above head) I have been experimenting with power lifting. I just get that urge to lift something super heavy for some reason. Picking mulberries and raspberries.
Walking.

yay  O0

---

mixed warmup: running, deadhang pullups, l-seat, GHR extensions, rolling hamstring stretches etc...

lifting:

 2 reps of Power Snatch (I did just #75) every Minute for 10 Min

workout:

15 Minute AMRAP
10 Box Jumps (24")
100 ft Overhead Walk (75#)
3 Burpees at the top of every minute including the start

I did 9 complete rounds...which was a pretty high number. I used slightly less weight (was supposed to be #95). going 100 ft completely locked out above head with a barbell is super hard...so I probably made the safe choice. the burpees and jumps were killer on the cardio.


so that is 900 ft (or the length of three footbal fields) carrying 75lb locked out overhead, 90 boxjumps @ 24", and 45 burpees in 15:00.

including the snatch lifts...just wrecked the shoulders unlike any other workout I have done (in a good way)

My workout today consisted of walking three miles to a forested area where I have permission to cut down trees to make hunting bow staves, then cutting down a small hickory tree (about 4 inches diameter at breast height), then carrying the 40 pound log on my shoulders 3 miles back home, then splitting the log into four staves and cleaning them up with my drawknife, carving knife and file so they can dry for a while before I turn them into bows or sell/trade them.

I don't know how many calories I burned, but it was a good, full-body, full-range-of-motion, utilitarian workout.

Well it's interesting to me. What is exercise then?

What is your job by the way?

As for me.. I've been doing a lot of just going out and doing spontaneous exercise/activities which include swimming(river), climbing, running, jumping mixed up with making stuff and using it.. I made(and used) a simple raft about a week ago and had been making(and using) simple atlatls a few days ago. Next thing I was going to do was make rope from nettles and do some stuff with that, but.. the egg-plums which had been fuelling this activity have all now run-out so the last the days I've been a lot less active... It sucks, but I don't feel the same eating fruit from the supermarket, it makes me feel bad if I eat too much of it and I can't afford to buy much anyway. Whereas the egg-plums I could eat them until I was full of them, feel great and satisfied the whole day..

heh, I often have the same thought when people post stuff like that. It seems like Eric had a decent workout though.

I know that I used to work as a mover and recently I helped someone move from one third floor walkup to another doing almost 20 trips each with super heavy boxes and furniture. This really isn't a 'workout' in the way I feel like vomiting after doing 15 minutes of non stop russian step ups, box jumps, overhead squats and weighted long jumps....which is all I really need a few times a week..whereas constant physical work yields way more mediocre results.

There were some interesting debates in the past about this. Personally I believe this is one of those things where human knowledge really trumps what is actually going to happen in a real world setting - natural, neolithic, or modern work. Even natural exercise or using natural objects - which can be great - one has to increasingly push them into some abstract (doing reps etc...) in order to really stress the muscles and cardio etc..in the necessary fashion. Of course just being active is a big bonus...just not the most effective.

The methods of work and necessity in nature would require and produce fit, agile and relatively strong people, yet when trying to become more fit, agile and strong one gets the most effective results focusing on the methods that concentrate on those things without all the things that are really un-relevant as far as the physical human body is concerned (the actually prey from the chase etc..)

I'm sure people that tended fields and such without sophisticated machinery were perhaps stronger than the average person of today that 'works out' and stone agers were possibly far stronger but that often enough would be due to their health and vitality rather than 'exercise' methods.

I personally think its good to strive to have the most natural kind of movements that also capitalize on the knowledge we have in order to work out less and rest more - for better and safer results.

Wow, you must build A LOT of bows! I assume you don't keep them all, so I'm curious how you market yourself so well that you can sell that many? I've always struggled with the marketing part...
