I'm tired of being so lazy, I'm in decent shape now but would like to be pretty ripped come season. What are some work outs that you guys are doing?

"Getting ripped" is 80% diet. But I guess it also depends on what your definition of "ripped" is. Single digit body fat?

HITT cardio and weights. I wouldn't waste money on crossfit. You can do the same thing on your own without paying the ridiculous prices. If it were me going to CO, Id focus on endurance (long distance running) and leg strength (lunges, squats, etc). Throw in some burpees, box jumps, mountain climbers and six or so one minute ab workouts in every routine.

You wouldn't have much to worry about if you were in the single digit body fat range. The lowest I've ever been was 12% and that was 3 years of extreme low carb intake, cardio, and weight training.

Yeah I didn't mean to get yoked, just in really good shape and also hopefully flip the switch a little faster on my wife. I have been doing lunges and some long walking and bike riding, pelvic thrusts as well to build up strength from an injury.

Easy ...sign up for "train to hunt" work outs online it's like $19 a month(got videos also). Can Do most of them at home.

Best mountain work out is with a pack on in my experience.


I'm alittle extreme but I only work out from March to Sept
I do stability circuit training twice a week, weights/core 5 days a week and 32 stories of stairs with 100lbs three times a week.

Only worksouts I have that take more then 30 mins are my stability circuits (but they are pure hell). These are my joint rehab work outs.

The only real advantage crossfit has is if you cant self motivate and group workouts are better. Its hard to quit in front of a crowd.

Then your diet is all wrong. I used to go from 13.5-14 down to 8 and visa versa in about 3 months. Foods are measured, weighed and eaten at exact times. All workouts and cardio are timed around it. Also I used to work out with several guys that were well within single digits, including myself, that couldn't run two miles if we had to. The type of workout and how you have your macros lined out will determine what your results will be.

I hit the heavy bag in my garage HARD for 15 minutes, pushups until I can do no more, then generally flail weakly at the bag for another 5, twice a day. For roadwork I jog 15 minutes Tuesday and Thursday, 30 minutes Saturday. I'm 48, soon to be 49, with bad knees.

you can do a lot of what crossfit gyms do at your own house but not even close to all of it unless you have a pretty bad*** home gym, and like someone said, its really hard to quit in front of a group of your peers.

walk with your backpack with some weight in
it and the boots you intend to wear hunting.
increase the weight as you progress until it
is at least the same weight as the load you
intend to carry hunting. walk as far as you
intend to walk when you're on your hunt.
carry a piece of cut off oak limb in your
hands to simulate the weight of carrying your rifle.
wear long pants and a long sleeve shirt. carry
water. you should be able to walk a long way
without huffing and puffing by the time you're
ready to go. good luck
