This workout is murder. You’ve got 13 rounds total of three minutes each, 100 Hindu Squats, and 4 miles to run with sprints and shadowboxing included. This workout is all about your ability to endure, not just physically, but mentally. You probably won’t be able to complete it on your first time through, if you don’t have previous training, because it’s just so demanding on your cardio. It goes without saying that you should go hard on everything, unless it says not to.
If you feel like you are going to die or your heart is going to jump out of your chest– STOP! You should feel the exertion and this workout should be very hard, but if you are done with the run and have absolutely nothing left, just skip straight to the cooldown.
Hey, just be glad I didn’t ask you to do this thing for a week straight.
One more thing before we go. There may be some of you out there reading this blog that are in very bad shape or are pretty overweight and may feel a little overwhelmed with the things I am posting. Listen, I don’t care what you have to modify to be able to get the workout in, just get it in! If you have to walk instead of run, powerwalk instead of sprint, do girly push-ups, crunches instead of sit-ups, then you do it!! You do whatever it takes for you to get in shape. Don’t make excuses about the workout being too difficult, because it’s not set in stone. That’s the whole reason this blog exists: to make sure that people (who may not even like exercise) are able to draw the inspiration to train from anime characters.
It’s nerdy, but– damn it, it sure is fun.
That’s all for today. Until next time, good luck and train hard.
