Unique Cardio – So Difficult Even a Caveman Might Not Do It!

If you are looking to step up your cardiovascular workout with a touch of unique style then you will love this article. First of all, the type of cardiovascular training that I am referring to will involve nothing more than your front yard or the availability of an open flat space and a few other items. No treadmill is necessary here!

To begin, you will need 3 items. You will need some markers such as cones or water bottles (4 markers to be exact), 2 five gallon buckets of water (both of these count as a single item), and yourself. Simple enough, right? To start the drill simply place your markers in a straight line allowing for 15 yards of distance between each marker. The first marker is your starting point. Place one of the 5 gallon buckets of water at the second marker and the second five gallon bucket of water at the third marker. The fourth and final marker is your finishing point. The total measure of distance from the first marker to the fourth and final marker is 60 yards! Now with all of this set up you are ready to engage in a serious conditioning drill that is sure to challenge your cardiovascular training like nothing else.

Start out at the first marker on the ground in a position to do a bear crawl. From the starting point to the first marker you will bear crawl only using the muscles in your upper-body to move yourself forward to the first marker. Once you reach the first marker with the 5 gallon bucket of water immediately jump up and pick up the 5 gallon bucket of water with both hands allowing the bucket to hang in front of your body. You will have to sort of straddle and walk to keep the bucket in front of you. This is much more difficult because it slows you down forcing you to use more muscles to stabilize the water. Next, progress to the second bucket of water and obviously you will pick up both by grabbing one in each hand. From here simply walk to the end at the finishing marker. Once finished put everything back into place and repeat the process. This fitness and conditioning drill would certainly even challenge a caveman! Give it a try.
