Workout Challenge

3 posts in this topic

This is for everyone who wants a challenging workout.  Basically the workout is simple in the sense of what you need to complete it.  Find a track or a soccer field or even a basketball court.  Easiest will be a track of 400 meters.  The workout involves splitting up the running portion into 100 meters or 200 meters sprints.  Even a 100 meter stretch can work, but its harder to keep count of how many sets you have completed.  Many of you may have heard of this workout or even have done it.  So your input on how to make it more challenging or how to help beginners is appreciated.

The workout is:

Run 100 meters at sprint speed and stop.  Immediately do burpees (everyone will be at their own level, so figure out how many you can do without running and do half in the interval circuit.  Say for example I do 5 burpees).  Once you have completed your burpees.

Get back up and run again for 100 meters at sprint speed, stop and do another set of burpees.  Keep the circuit going till you can't go anymore...gas tank is empty.  Before you start make sure to stretch the whole body.  Burpees done without stretching will cause major abdominal pain for the next few days and even leg pains and upper torso around the chest area.  Also finish the workout with a cool down.  Which can be walking till your heart comes to resting rate or jog and make sure to stretch at the end.

I'm add a link of how to do a burpee for the beginners and those who feel uneasy of how to perform one.  Others perform the burpee in a different way, which can be easier or harder.  But I have found this way is the best for a total body exercise.  http://www.bodybuilding.com/exercises/detail/view/name/burpee  The jump at the end can be changed to make it more difficult or taken out to make it easy.  There is no right or wrong unless your form is not correct, which can cause more pains later on. 

Have fun with it and don't over exert yourself.  Build up to a goal.  Anyone who wants to post their workouts is encouraged to do so as this may motivate others to get up and try it.  At the end you may be ready to faint, but you will look back and be impressed at your progress of cardio, overall fitness and health.

I completed 4 sets in a full workout session.  1 set for me was Run 50 meters 5 burpees run another 50 meters and another 5 burpees.   This was one set. Rest for 45 sec to a minute and do another set.

Incorporate it into your workout.  Works even better.

This is an amazing work out. It seems like hiit. 


Hiit is the best way to keep in shape and lose weight. Burpees is a great exercise. It is one of those exercises that works out the whole body. And doing this in combination with sprinting is an amazing combo.

    • I think you've hit the nail on the head here. 
    • A solution is, if amrit-dharis followed rehit, IF, then, only then more people might want to be Singhs. When I say rehit, I don't mean just the paper rehit maryada people have now. I mean following the active lifestyle rehit like in the rehitnaamas, rehit that has been followed since Guru Hargobind. Doing things like learning archery, shooting, horse-riding etc Follow Gurus hukam of learning shastar everyday, and also learn martial arts. (See Nihang Singh dals for example) Instead of being people that religiously follow football and cricket matches, they would be involved in these activities. Then they would be an actual "practising" amrit dhari, as opposed to someone who took amrit just to do paat, which any sehajdhari or "mona" can actually do! Can gurdwaras and sikh associations organise such activities? Organising kabaddi tournaments isn't really going  to make sangat proper amrit dharis. However, organising kabaddi and wrestling training for sangat to be involved in would help! WE absolutely should not act like the disarmed sikhs of colonial times. Instead of becoming like the naamdharis who put the kirpaan symbol in the kanga, we should get out of this colonial compromise of not following martial rehit and get back to actually being Singhs. Can the community do this?
    • This man passed away he, his son and daughter in law were acting like God's gift. During family gathering/ prayer session at their house the old man literally frowned on seeing monehs. Daughter in law n his son spoke to everyone equally, but they forced others into keeping hair/ take Amrit. Not sure about my dad but my mum got compelled by the daughter's words n took Amrit. She was never happy kno wha am saying? Even today she speaks of leaving Amrit behind. I was a kid then never knew reasons why mum took Amrit. Anyways, the old man? Majority of his grandson's are moneh! When he died they all cut their hair. And his eldest granddaughter?? MARRIED A WHITE MAN KEEPS BOY'S HAIRSTYLE!!! (Daughter of his daughter in law)... SANGAT JIO! something to think about, why force/ compel n pester others? THEY ARE ADULTS AND KNOW ABOUT AMRIT/ PRAYERS!
    • actually due to working across town , Mum and Dad didn't have the same input like you think , he always had non-sikh friends growing up did minimal paat and when he went to uni predominately white friends. He has married a dastarwali bibi out of his choice (love marriage) she is also a coconut but will do the Indian thing if it suits her (I know birds of a feather). He refers to us as 'you Indians'  yep we have a good laugh at that. He's an architect so I guess he mixes with a certain type of people and is sniffy about his starting point which frankly he needs to get major ish kicked out of him since it was Mum's machine sewing and dad's grocery that paid for his ungrateful A$$ to get where he got.  Anyway because she is a socialising sikh he has started doing his banian and going to programs ...one good thing  But lately he tries to Lord it over Mum with his interpretation of what izzat and family values should be , of course he seems to believe that the Mother he abandoned should somehow be consulting him on how to proceed. kal ka shokaraa , akkl gitte'ch showing disrespect to his elders then wants to be the big I am SMH
