Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...Tell Me More
Complete, throughout the course of an hour-long walk:
20 Handstand Pushups

Warmup: 30 second Grok Squat, lateral, forward, and backward leg swings (10 each leg).
I wrote about the concept of a walking workout a couple years ago, but this time I’ve tried to structure it more concretely. You’re free to operate as you wish within the requirements, but you still gotta hit the numbers. I gave this one a shot earlier this week and had a lot of fun with it. Not overly tough, but I still feel I got a great workout.
There’s not much more to say. It’s all fairly self-explanatory, don’t you think?
“Climb Something” – Trees are ideal, but tall fences, walls, light posts, and anything that you can scale safely and effectively will work.
“Find Something Heavy” – Think rock, log, bag of groceries. You might have to bring something with you from home.
Have fun and choose whichever rep scheme you want!
A few things to remember:
Increase the difficulty by wearing a weight vest or carrying a heavy weight. Just realize that you’ll have to carry that weight along with you the entire time, and it doesn’t count as the “Find Something Heavy” aspect.
