FFD Workout: The Underground Workout!

by Sean Croxton & Brett Klika

I know! I’m a day behind with this one. My Friday was tied up with moving into a new apartment. Love my new place!

Today’s (or yesterday’s) Friday Fun Day is a lesson in isometric creativity, as Brett Klika, author of The Underground Workout Manual, challenges my core, balance, and toughness.

Be sure to do this one with a friend. Doing it by yourself would be, well, interesting…

FFD Workout: Backpackin’ It!

by Sean Croxton & Jenn Culver

Happy Friday Fun Day, Y’all!

A few weeks ago, our friend Jenn Culver of My Travel Fit and I shot this super-creative backpack workout.

All you need is a backpack and those old college textbooks the bookstore wouldn’t buy back at the end of the summer. You know, the ones you thought you’d hold onto for “reference”.

Everyone can do this one!

Here’s what we did:

1. Front squats
2. Push Ups
3. Single-Arm Row (try single-legged!)
4. Waiter – Alternating Lunges

Do 10-15 reps of each movement (or whatever works for you). You can do them back-to-back or you can take 30 to 90 secs in between movements.

Do them as a circuit. Get through it about 3 or 4 times. Then finish yourself off with a few sprints. Be sure to get full recovery between sprints.

If you’re at home and have no room to sprint, do high-knees in place or quick-paced jumping jacks for 15 to 20 seconds.

Get that heart rate up!!

It’s good for you.

I’m headed to the IDEA World fitness convention today. Gonna get worked out by the best of the best.

Keep your eyes peeled. I just might have to upload some more Friday Fun-ness to YouTube today LIVE from Los Angeles.

Happy Weekend!

The Inspire Millions Challenge!

by Brett Klika

Americans are no longer chubby, portly, or overweight.

We are corpulent, obese, and rotund. We don’t move like humans are supposed to move.

We don’t eat like humans are supposed to eat. We are not just merely dying from this plight, we are suffering.

What would happen to a Cheetah if we fed it Cheetos and made it sit idle? It would get sick, it would get depressed It would develop pain, and die.

Why? Because Cheetos are not what Cheetahs are supposed to eat, and sitting idle is not what cheetahs are supposed to do.

As cruel as the above treatment may seem to an animal, many Americans live, embrace, and defend their “right” to this scenario. After all, there is a robust, nearly unchallenged industrial machine to support it. Unchallenged, until now.

This is a call to action.

A much higher calling than sculpting a six-pack, toning thighs, selling gym memberships or slinging miracle supplements.

It’s a call for our society to lift each other up off the couch and move.

It is a call to educate each other to eat food instead of chemicals.

It is a call to INSPIRE MILLIONS to stop suffering and live like humans are designed to live.

You don’t have to be a personal trainer, life coach, or physician to grab a loved one’s hand and say “let’s go for a walk”. How do you know if you are walking fast and far enough? When someone no longer needs to pull you off the couch to go for a walk. You don’t have to be a dietician, nutritionist, or chef to select food that is actually “food” and not merely a chemically-induced taste. How do you know what “real food” is? The ingredients list should be the food itself. For meat, well, if you know what the animal’s name was prior to being on your plate, it’s probably safe to eat.

We don’t have to be hot, ripped, toned, shredded, sculpted, or beautiful. We need men, women, and children to get off the couch, stop eating poison, and get out of pain. Everyone can contribute. Do something today, right now to change the way you live or INSPIRE someone else to do the same. It may not happen overnight, it may take time. Person by person, household by household, city by city, state by state.

Working together, we can stand up and INSPIRE MILLIONS to be happy, healthy and pain free. After all, that’s how humans are supposed to live.
