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.

February 2017- Video Barrage

I was looking through my phone’s video library yesterday and realized I had about 30 exercise videos I never published so over the course of an hour I blitzed YouTube with a couple dozen new fitness and exercise clips. There’s so many I won’t post them here but they include several ways to spice up your arm training by incorporating body work into it and quite a few ones from the archives that I had never filmed until recently. 

I’ve also added a couple training montages over the last month or so…

Hope all is fit in your neck of the woods and I hope to be posting quite a bit more in 2017!

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…

Some New Leg Work

Here’s a few new leg based exercise videos I filmed this morning at 5am. Since my client wasn’t feeling good and couldn’t come in and I was already up I tried to make myself productive… 😄

A Bunch More Exercise Videos

I’ve been busy adding to the exercise library lately the last month or two. Here they are from oldest to most recent…

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.
