WOW: Grok Walk
Posted By Mark Sisson On June 27, 2011 @ 8:00 am In Workout of the Week (WOW) | 21 Comments
Complete, throughout the course of an hour-long walk:
20 Handstand Pushups
Climb Something, Twice
5 Short (30-ish meter) Sprints
Find Something Heavy to Carry for Seven Minutes
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.
