Training

A proper cat burglar has to be in peak physical condition. Between my aerial classes at Miraas and parkour classes at Apex I’m usually too sore to add too many workouts in between. Although, I am hoping to add a day of running in there somewhere when I can will my body to move again.

There are many good ways to get fit. I would personally advise workouts that emphasize natural movement and I find that skill based classes are a great way to keep your drive and interest going. Crossfit and climbing are both great ways to work your whole body.

I have compiled a list of resources for those of you who looking for new exercises to challenge yourself during your own workouts.

Demon Drills

Ryan ‘Demon’ Ford, co-owner of Apex Movement, has created a youtube channel of creative exercises that are easily done outdoors. Of course I don’t mean the exercises are necessarily easy, they aren’t called Demon Drills for nothing, but you should be able to find something for your fitness level.

Good Old Rock P90X

Friend and fellow blogger Matt Stratton at Good Old Rock has been posting his experience with the P90X workout. A good look at someone’s personal experience with this particular program, which admittedly I don’t know much about, but I do enjoy the personal take on his home fitness journey.

Running Training Plans

Not the slickest site, but I used his running training schedule when I ran the Denver half marathon and was very pleased with it.

100 Push Ups

Nothing beats a good old push up. This is a great training schedule to increase your strength. I’ve known a lot of people who have followed this and gotten to an impressive number, although I can’t say I know anyone who has gotten all the way through it. They also offer sister sites for pull ups and squats.

  3. Hey there! I’m really in to body weight training and the like.. blame the parkour! Anyway, if the parkour WoD is too tough for someone starting out I suggest this site:

    All workouts are mainly little to no equipment and take no longer that 20 mins. There are beginning, intermediate, and advance options for each workout.
