Hey guys! Last week on the podcast I talked about how my mind is going crazy because my workouts have been so different, and you know what? I love it.
I use to train in the gym doing gymnastics or kettlebell training and my schedule looked like this:
Monday - upper body
Tuesday - lower body / core
Wednesday - Handstand
Thursday Upper body
Friday - lower body
Saturday - Handstand
I was getting pretty strong doing it but because I have a son and a business my time is precious. There are so many other things I enjoy doing that being in gym started to not sound so fun.
I wanted to learn parkour, and surf, and climb and play basketball. How can you fit all that in? You can’t.
So Julie Angel challenged my belief about going outside and completely training differently. It’s awesome. My training is pretty much only outside, it’s challenging and fun. I am doing things I never thought I would do. My training now looks like this:
Monday : Barefoot running
Tuesday : crawling variations
Wednesday : climbing outdoor
Thursday : safety Rolls
Friday : balance work on the rails
Saturday : Lift heavy stuff
Sunday : Go Surf
Most of my workouts are designed to be about 30 Min but because I end up having so much fun I stay longer. I love the variety and I’m finally taking all the strength I’ve built in the gym and trying to use it in the real world. I know not everyone wants to be a parkour guy or gal but it is amazing how gym strength doesn’t really carry outside. This is a fun journey and I challenge you to break out of your norm.
