It is 10:50 am and I have been working at a serious pace since 7:30 am. So far, we have run 11 miles, 3 sets of stairs, 5 runs up the steepest hill in town, 30 burpees, 30 clap pushups, 200 weighted pullups, 400 weighted pushups, and 600 weighted squats (2 Murphs and a bunch of running). I have already consumed and sweated out over a gallon of water, but right now, I am just staring at a barbell and wondering if I can pick it up. The barbell was 155 pounds and was the single implement to a classic CrossFit hero workout called DT.
All you need is a blank wooden dice, at least 2 of them. I had my friend Max Baumgartner give me some and I went and labeled one dice with exercises and the other with numbers. I will roll both dice and then do that number of reps for that exercise.
I got some questions on the email (email@example.com) that spawned this episode of Physical Friday. Which if you have any questions about fishing, fitness or guest suggestions just send it over maybe your question will make good material for an entire episode. I have my own home gym and it has certainly spiraled out of control. It takes up my garage and some of the driveway and I have more equipment than some actual gyms have. The way I have done it with my group is that people are welcome to come workout at my house and every now and then we will all chip in on a new piece of equipment.
Dr. Izumi Tabata proved that 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest repeated 8 times (4 minutes total) was the way that most athletes can produce the highest output of energy. Today we discuss how to bring the Tabata Protocol into your training. You can feel free to get creative with the workouts and you don’t need any equipment to do it! Below are some combinations that I like to do and some thoughts on ways you can add to them.
So now we have finally come to a hotel with a gym that has everything that you need. It has a treadmill, dumbbells, a pull-up bar, a pool and you brought your jump rope. With all of that, you can make up your own workouts but you can also do workouts like The Murph, Three-Rounds-For-Time, 21:15:9 or a combination of pool and running workouts.
These 3 workouts you can do with nothing but a dumbbell. Forget the fancy gyms and all the equipment, sometimes you just can’t do certain exercises without the equipment. And you don’t always have access to the best gyms, so here are workouts you can do with just a dumbbell.
