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.

    • In the increasingly feminised world, Islam is seen by some as the last bastion of masculinity.
    • How many of them are "religious" and "spiritual" in prison like they are "gay for the stay" And the ones that go to Syria to fight for ISIS are hardly less animalistic. There are a lot of perks to be muslim in prison, it's like being bribed. I very much doubt they cook their own food, they probably get their food from outside. What it means is that prison services are discriminating against non muslim prisoners. This muslim conversion is like a gang and yes it is like a brotherhood but muslim brotherhood is built on a "us" versus "them" mentality. Which makes sense because they are in a constant state of war "Dar Ul Harb vs Darl Ul Salam ". It is not like a Sikh brotherhood. True brotherhood is not built on antagonism. However, if you feel this great respect for this being that you are an east end cockney bad boy tearaway ensure you are not becoming a dhimmi.

      Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh  Sometimes we need to reflect inward, what I'm about to say may even hurt a little more (not my intention, but I think it will) during the ardaas when you were asking for high marks ji, before you asked you heard of Gurmukhs who undoubtedly had it way worse, mothers who had children cut into pieces put around like a necklace, Gurmukhs who were tortured to death by grinders, now if we think about it, they have more of a reason to be mad then you do. They lost there lives. You had one bad exam grade. They still at the end of the day said thank you to mahraj. They had such priceless thinking. We can't even be the dust on there feet! That's the pyar we as Sikhs should aspire for. To just get sad with mahraj over one grade, I don't think that the pyar for mahraj was there at all in the beginning, I think that the pyar may have been for someone getting the job done, that someone we (I'm in the same boat) decided was mahraj, and as long as our desires were filled we didn't have a problem, one exam grade and like the manmukhs we are (again you and me both) abandon mahraj. So now we have a choice, accept that we messed up ask for forgiveness and stand back up, or get mad stay mad, until we find someone else who can bless us (Loads of these "babay" out there) with good grades and live life based on lies. You will get true sikhi, you'll get the true pyar, just stay strong. If any of my words offend you. I'm sorry. If our ithhaas/gurmuth philosophy offended you, I'm not sorry. Again I'm the type of pakhand to go out there and tell other people this, yet I myself probably would get mad over doing an ardaas like you did. I'm one of those who can talk the talk, but can't walk the walk.  Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh 
    •  No mate, I don't hate you at all.  You talk too much and that's kinda irritating!
    • Again, it's not about pinning blame, or going after certain groups. It's just a case of reminding people that as Sikhs we need to look out for each other. I'm not blaming Amritdharis for the woes of the world, lol. I just think we should be at the forefront of certain issues that I wouldn't expect others to bother with. But that's not happening for some reason, or at least not in a noticeable manner.
