It’s nearing the end of August and you’ve got a late September or October hunt approaching fast.  You’ve been maintaining a pseudo active lifestyle but you want to kick it up a notch so that you hit the slopes in top form.  You’re also working 40+ hours and have responsibilities at home that take precedence over all else.  What do you do?  Get rid of wasted space in your workout.   Work your body efficiently and timely to maximize your gains and reduce the required workout time.   Continue Reading…

The Struggle is Real! (Photo Courtesy of stalkingtheseam.com)

I had a reader reach out to me a month or so ago and perhaps ask one of the most important questions of his life.  He asked for advise on how to get in better shape for hunting season.  I say this not because he asked me specifically but that he had personally made the decision to not only be a better hunter but more importanty to become a more healthy person.  Continue Reading…

Come on! How Could I Write an Article on Running In the Sand Without Including Rocky! (Photo Courtesy of varsitypunk.com)

Running in the sand?  You’re thinking give me a break.  This is a hunting and fitness website not some beach resort hang out.  Hang with me though.  For a lot of us getting our strides is usually done on flat, hard surfaces.  If you’re lucky you get to mix in some trail runs to add a certain level of difficulty to managing the terrain with your feet and ankles.  Now think about a surface that is somewhat fluid and changes as you apply the force from your foot.

Tell Me This Guys Isn’t Intense and Utilizing a Magnitude of Muscles to Accomplish a Single Task!  (Photo Courtesy of businessinsider.com)

I wanted to cover one more exercise regarding functional movements and the three planes of human movement.  The transverse plane which dissects the body through your waist and separates your head from your toes probably doesn’t get the attention it deserves relative to how much it’s used in the field.  Most movements that work in this plane have a twisting effort involved thus working your core muscles in a rotational fashion.  A great (actually two great equal and opposite) exercise to utilize are wood chops and reverse wood chops.  Both of these involve basically the same movement but in opposite directions.  Continue Reading…

Treadmills Can and Should Be Utilized to Keep Your Moving In the Right Direction (Photo Courtesy of more.com)

I know, I know, who wants to run on a treadmill when the outdoors are calling!?!?  I am totally with you on this and would chose running outside over inside on a hamster wheel any day.  There are some circumstances where if we want to get a workout it then we’ll need to breakdown and use a treadmill.  Fortunately for us there are several benefits I have learned that can be gained by utilizing a treadmill.

Would This be You’re Ideal Workout?  (Photo Courtesy of demonocchiali.it)

I wanted to mix it up a bit today and try something a little different with all you HuntingFit.com readers.  Beings that fitness is something that we all have in common I figure its a great topic we can all share with each other.  Just this week someone asked if he could post a question about workouts on the site because he was getting pretty bored with his.  So rather than me do all the talking I would like to open it up to you the readers to post up your favorite daily workout.  For brevity’s sake just pick what would be an ideal day to prepare yourself physically to be a better hunter?  Of course we all work out multiple days a week and utilize various exercises but if you could only chose one day’s worth what would it be?

With hunting season seemingly so far away keeping your eye on the prize and maintaining focus can be difficult. Sure you’re getting some work outs in but are you pushing yourself as hard as you should so that you’ll be ready come fall?  If you need some more timely motivation consider some of the relatively new competitions that have come about.  Some of the more popular ones I have noticed include: Continue Reading…

Tired-at-the-gym

Monotony and boredom are the enemies of success. When you get bored, you lose discipling and motivation.

Here are a few creative ways to improve your fitness:

Unfortunately I am not made of money otherwise I would probably be off hunting somewhere rather than taking this time to write an article. Regardless, I do still manage quite a bit of hunting and maintain a good level of physical fitness over the course of the year. For those who are hesitant or have managed to keep putting off raising the bar for your fitness level there are quite a few options to kick start a new healthy habit with very minimal financial investment. Or if you are like me and find it more convenient (and thereby more likely to happen) to work out at home or supplement your gym workouts there is hope if you are on a budget. Continue Reading…
