Bodyweight Training-Tough 8 – Count Bodybuilder Workout.

Years ago when I read a Navy Seal workout book and was introduced to
the dreaded 8 – count bodybuilder I found a tougher than thought exercise.

In the book the Seal talked about every Friday they had to do 100 non stop
8 – count body builders and he hated them so much that in the workout
section he left them out stating ” I left 8 – count bodybuilder out for obvious
reasons” He hated them. 100 8 – count body builders are tough, 100 in 10
minutes will even test the fittest.

Here’s a workout you can try and it will test you mentally and physically.

You need 100 yards, a heavy bag or sand bag ( about 50 to 80 lbs ) and a
toughness to finish:

Do 1 8 count – shoulder the bag walk it 100 yards – drop it do 2 – 8 counts
shoulder the bag on the other shoulder walk 100 yards do 3 – 8 counts and
see how many times you can walk up and down that field.

I finished with 22 times total 253 – 8 count body builders, shouldering the bag
23 times and walking 2,200 yards in 60 minutes.

As the workout gets longer you work harder doing more 8 – count bodybuilders
and it will test you in a big way.

    Of all the bodyweight stuff I’ve heard of and read, these pushups have the best reviews. I’m going to add them to my daily routine as from now.

  5. Excellent post however I was wondering if you could write a litte
    more on this subject? I’d be very grateful if you could
    elaborate a little bit further. Appreciate it!
