Hey all! Need some help. I have been doing some walking (40min at incline) and running (30min at no incline) for a long time now. I want to add a body weight routine to it. There are so many bodyweight exercises out there and not sure how I can take them and turn them into a daily routine. I like routines.

If I was to build a daily routine, how should I lump the exercises? Should I do reps or AMRAP or something else? Any tips or guidance on what you do? I would like a set of exercises for Monday, another set for Tuesday and on and on.....because...routine. :) Or maybe a routine I alternate days.

Thanks for any help.

I do a weight routine three days a week and I run/walk four days a week alternating and take one day a week off. As I close in on hunting (July) I start wearing a pack with weight as I run/walk. It's worked for me for the last 20 years and I find plenty of much younger guys not having the stamina that I have.

Thanks all!

I found Reddit's Recommended Routine. It is along the same bodyweight principles. I like it because I travel a lot for work and doing it anywhere seems possible. If anybody has any history with it, let me know.

Personally, I feel its important, to about once a week put your hunting boots on and take a walk or hike with you backpack or day pack on, even with just 25 pounds in it. Your body gets used to your equipment, and your equipment conforms to your body.
Thanks.

If you can handle simple, but boring I do this on a regular business especially when getting back into working out

Push up
Air squat
Pullup
Air lunge
Dip
Crunch
Calf raise
Leg lifts

Figure out how many reps work for you and do as many sets as you want or can. If you want higher intensity AMRAP it. You can substitute jumping exercises such as burpees or jumping squats as well.

I'm in the same boat and curious if anyone has experience with the P90x3, T25, Insanity type workouts. Worth it?

I've done a sprint tri and half marathon and think I've got my cardio needs down, but have never really done any weight/strength training. I don't have a gym membership and spend the majority of my winters travelling for work. 30 min workouts in the hotel before work sounds ideal (I like routines too). From my research P90x3 seems to be the most strength biased of the three but still seems to make cardio a major focus.

Not sure about P90X3 but the original P90X has a really good leg day routine that uses body weight and added dumbbell weight once you work your way up. They have a good HIIT plyometric workout as well that is all body weight.

Here's a list of exercises I pull from for my daily work outs. I had to write them down other wise I'll do the same circuit over and over. I built the box from scrap on the job site and the use the sand bag for PT hikes.

I'll pull 3-8 work outs from the list per work out depending on what I'm trying to do.
I'm more of a full body work out type of person so for example I'll do 2 upper body, 2 lower body, 2 core exercises per circuit. Some prefer to work on just upper or just lower and rotate days.

For high intensity I'll do an AMRAP or EMOM for the circuit and set a time limit I think will be challenging.

Throw in some runs and hikes and you'll be set.

I think for 90% of people gym memberships are a waste of money and a huge waste of time (which in my world I value more than money) By the time you drive to the gym work out and drive home you could of got a better workout in, a shower and ate dinner, for free.

Stick with Reddit's bodyweight routine, it's decent. You're referring to the recommended routine on bodyweightfitness subreddit correct?
