Yo yo yo! Hope you are having a fantastic Taco Tuesday!

Sadly today we wont be talking about tacos, lol

I am a big fan of nature and I know you are as well.

Yesterday I posted this picture on my Instagram and I got a lot of cool responses. Turns out I am not the only one that does this.

hiking rock workout - make hiking harder

I want to invite you to try that next time you go hiking:

  • Pick up and carry a heavy rock for distance
  • Or overhead press the rock & then squat with it it

The heavier the rock the harder this will be.

If for some reason there are no rocks when you hike you can:

  • Bring a weight vest (I’ve seen a lot of guys jog with them)
  • Bring a kettlebell & overhead press it for distance
  • Load up heavy things inside your backpack
  • Bring a sandbag & do the hike with it
  • Pick up your friend and carry them on the hike for some distance

These are different forms of loaded conditioning & if you can’t hike due to weather then you can take the same principles: pick something heavy & walk around your block for distance.

Simple, tough and effective!

Give that a try next time you hike. It will be a killer workout and a fun challenge!

Attack Life and Get Stronger!
