May 2017- The Latest

As life carries me in many directions the Bare 5 Fitness blog has not been getting much love the last several months. My fitness hasn’t slowed down but getting content here has fallen on the priority scale quite a bit. The Playground Ninja has taken a chunk of it and I started playing baseball again so my training and workouts have shifted a bit from where they have been for a good while.

Like most jack of all trade seekers I’m still dabbling in many different things trying to keep good balance and overall proficiency. 

Workouts these days are a little less ninja based and more strength and power based, with a special emphasis on legs and rotation. I haven’t played baseball in 13 years and have some catching up to do so I hope to tailor my training a bit more toward sport performance the next few months. I’ll try to share some of that as I go along. 

All the while I’ve tried to keep up on getting videos of new exercises and workouts out there. The Playground Ninja Fitness Series now has 3 installments (Pull, Core, Push) with another in the works this week. 

Bare 5 covered some SuperMoves…

I’ve also been using barbell and dumbbell complexes lately…

And adding some new exercises to the program…

Hope fitness is finding you all well.

It’s been in the works for a while but I made it official a couple weeks ago. They’ll all be pretty simple but I thought it would be a fun way to document my playground ninja activity.

Thanks for reading, have a great day!

The Playground 300

Find a playground, any will do. 

All you need is 3 little moves. 

Cycle through til 300 reps and

Quite a workout you will get…

This is what I played with around today. Simple but effective. I used push-ups, step-ups and body rows with rounds of 30, 24, 20, 16 and 10 reps for a total of 300 reps (100 each move). I added 300 seconds of misc hanging at the end for a nice finishing touch. You could use any number of exercises or rep schemes but this seemed just right.  

August 2016- New Videos

I’m still playing around with different things and workouts. Here’s the latest videos from the last month or so…

Jump, Dip & Hang

One of my favorite styles of workouts. A set of jumps, a set of dips, a set of hanging. All different styles and types, over and over again until I feel done. No particular structure other than that, just go with what I feel like. Today it was at the community center and park.
