Naruto Ninja Movement 2.0- Workout #8

This is one of my old stand-by workouts that I do when I get bored.


Naruto Ninja Movement 2.0- Workout #8


Run 5 Miles. At every 1 Mile do:

  • 30 Push-ups
  • 30 Sit-ups
  • 30 Squats

Notes:
  • It make a big difference cardio-wise doing the bodyweight exercises in the midst of the 5 miles. It's a lot different than doing the exercises before or after the run. 
  • OPTIONAL: You can also wear up to a 25lb weighted vest during this workout. 

That's all for today! Until next time, good luck and train hard!

Naruto Ninja Movement 2.0- Workout #7

Adapted from a workout on this site.


Naruto Ninja Movement 2.0- Workout #7


Warm-up:

  1. Jog 1 Mile
  2. 15 Burpees

Then,

  1. 100 Meter Sprint
  2. 30 Seconds Push-ups
  3. 30 Seconds Pull-ups
  4. 30 Seconds Dips
--5 to 10 rounds, depending on your fitness. No rest between rounds. 


Notes:

  • This is a serious conditioning workout for some of the basic movements to clear obstacles. If you are unable to complete even 5 rounds of the workout, just complete as many as you can and build it up over time.
  • The jog is a jog. Not a run. Pace at about a 10 minute mile or slower.
  • It can take anywhere from 10-30 to complete the 100 Meter Sprint, depending on speed and fatigue during the workout, meaning that the workout's maximum time would probably run around 15-20 minutes. That with the warm-up, will put your time somewhere in the realm of 25-30 minutes, which would be shorter than the majority of mud runs or obstacle courses, but probably more intense.

That's all for today. Until next time, good luck and train hard!

Real Anime Training Demonstrations: Wood Chopping



Oh, I'm a Lumberjack and I'm okay!  I'm quite fond of chopping wood. It's great for the midsection and conditioning in general, in my opinion.

Hope you guys are enjoying these demonstrations. There are more on the way.

Naruto Ninja Movement 2.0- Workout #6

  1. 5 x 40 Yard Sprints
  2. 10 Pull-ups
  3. 20 Push-ups
  4. 30 Sit-ups
  5. 40 Squats
  6. 50 Jumping Jacks
  7. Pick a Distance to Run: 5k (3.1 miles), 5 miles, 10k (6.2 miles), 10 miles, 13.1 miles
  8. 50 Jumping Jacks
  9. 40 Squats
  10. 30 Sit-ups
  11. 20 Push-ups
  12. 10 Pull-ups
  13. 5 x 40 Yard Sprints

Notes:
  • This workout is ideally for longer distance obstacle courses. It's a combination of strength movements, speed, and endurance. 
  • For the sprints, rest for 30-45 seconds in between each set. 
  • There is no rest in between anything else. 
  • Build your way up to the longer distances. Advance when you can complete a previous distance at least a 10 min/mile pace. 
  • Don't sacrifice form for speed, but the goal of the workout would be to complete it as quickly as possible, so keep that in mind. 

Have fun! Until next time, good luck and train hard!
